Dropkick Murphys are excited to bring back tradition in 2022 with the return of their St. Patrick’s Day Tour, kicking off February 21 in Reading, PA and culminating with the band’s customary run of St. Patrick’s Day week hometown shows in Boston, MA — including three shows at House Of Blues and one at Roadrunner.

Dropkick Murphys will be joined by special guests The Bombpops and The Rumjacks for most shows on the 22-date run. Jim Lindberg of Pennywise is also confirmed as a special guest for the March 20 Boston show, performing in support of his new Ted Hutt-produced solo album Songs From the Elkhorn Trail, out digitally November 19 via Epitaph.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, November 12 at 10:00 AM local time in each tour market at www.DropkickMurphys.com.

The return of Dropkick Murphys’ St. Patrick’s Day Tour follows back-to-back years of widely-viewed and highly-acclaimed live-streamed Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s Day concerts: 2020’s Streaming Up From Boston and 2021’s Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s Day Stream 2021…Still Locked Down, which topped Pollstar’s Livestream Chart.

Along with Streaming Outta Fenway in 2020 – the first-ever concert performed on the hallowed infield of Boston’s Fenway Park – and the band’s “Turn Up That Dial” Album Release Party in 2021, these four free live-streamed concerts (with no in-person audience) were watched over 17 million times, raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for DKM’s charity The Claddagh Fund and other nonprofits, and were featured on CBS  This Morning Saturday, CNN, NBC Nightly News, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and many more.

From August through mid-October of 2021, Dropkick Murphys returned to the road for their first live shows since the pandemic began, touring the U.S. with Rancid on the co-headlining Boston To Berkeley II Tour, which also featured performances at Riot Fest in Chicago and Aftershock in Sacramento.

Dropkick Murphys’ latest album, Turn Up That Dial, released April 30 via DKM’s own Born & Bred Records, is their tenth studio album, and fourth consecutive Billboard top 10 album debut, joining 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory (2017), Signed and Sealed in Blood (2013), and Going Out In Style (2011). Overall, Dropkick

Murphys’ music has generated half a billion streams, they’ve quietly moved 8 million-plus units worldwide and the band has sold out gigs on multiple continents.
