Thanksgiving and Christmas are on the horizon, but Dropkick Murphys are already looking ahead to St. Patrick’s Day 2022. It’s fitting of course given this is prime touring season for the band who are taking part in a 22-date “St. Patrick’s Day” tour.
The trek gets underway on Feb. 21 in Reading, Pa., and will culminate with a week of hometown shows in Boston that concludes on March 20.
Throughout the run, the Dropkick Murphys will be joined by a variety of opening acts including The Bombpops, The Rumjacks and Pennywise’s Jim Lindberg. You can check to see who is playing which shows with all the dates, cities and venues listed below.
For the band, returning to the concert stage will be special. Having to go with their livestreamed Dropkick Murphys concert last year just as the pandemic shut down touring, the group is ready to bring that St. Paddy’s spirit to an in-person audience once again. The band also has a new album to promote with Turn Up That Dial arriving earlier this year.
Tickets for the run will go on sale this Friday (Nov. 12) at 10AM local time in most markets. Check the band’s website for ticketing details.
