Dropkick Murphys Will Livestream Their Infamous St. Patrick’s Day Performance Tuesday Night
Few concerts have become as much of a yearly tradition as Dropkick Murphys’ annual St. Patrick’s Day show has. For many fans, the show is the ultimate expression of all things Irish punk, and has been a yearly staple for 24 years now. However, as one might have expected, the band will unfortunately have to cancel this year’s St. Patty’s Day gig – but instead of canceling it outright, they’ve announced that they’ll be livestreaming the show instead.
The Murphys released the following statement via their website:
“We hope you and your families are doing well during this trying time… For the first time in 24 years, we are not playing on St. Patrick’s Day weekend. The current world situation is the ONLY thing that would ever stop us from doing so… So we came up with an idea we’re going to pull off this Tuesday — the night of St. Patrick’s Day… We’re going to bring a DKM LIVESTREAM CONCERT to EVERYONE – ALL OVER THE WORLD!! You’ll be able to watch it on our YouTube, Instagram and Facebook Live…
“Here’s the details: DROPKICK MURPHYS LIVE FROM BOSTON THIS TUESDAY – MARCH 17
“7pm BOSTON TIME 4pm WEST COAST 11pm LONDON 12am BERLIN
“This will be a FULL CONCERT!!
“We’re excited to entertain you on St. Patrick’s Day — live from Boston!
“SPREAD THE WORD!! THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!!”
