After two years of live streams, Dropkick Murphys are headed back on tour for St. Patrick’s Day 2022. The Celtic- punk band (November 9) unveiled their 2022 St. Patrick’s Day American Tour. It features three nights at Boston’s House of Blues and a stint ending show at Bowery Boston’s new room, Roadrunner in Brighton sure to be a rowdy good time.
This marks the return of the Dropkicks to music venues for the Irish vacation after they performed live streams in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
The 22- date stint kicks off February 21 in Reading, Cleveland, Chicago, Austin, and other metropolises along the way. Including the date of March 12 at Shamrock Fest in Washington, D.C. The Dropkicks play State Theater in Portland on March 15. Just before lining up a holy chapeau trick of gigs on Lansdowne at House of Blues on March 17 forSt. Patrick’s Day, as well as March 18 and 19. They close effects out with a March 20 gig at Roadrunner, the megacity’s newest venue that’s set to open beforehand coming time.
The Bombpops and The Rumjacks will be joining the Dropkicks on this stint, and Jim Lindberg of Pennywise is on board for the Roadrunner date.
If you have ever been to a Dropkick Murphys show then you know what to expect. The band is loud, the crowd is rowdy. There are plenty of fist pumps in the air as they play their songs. But if you’ve never seen them live before, it can be hard to understand why people love this Irish punk rock group so much. So we’ve decided that once the tour stops at the legendary Stubbs in Austin. We will be sure to give outsiders a look at what makes their shows so great. We’ll also take some time out from our usual coverage to talk about how the band got started. Where they came from, and what has made them one of the most popular bands on the planet today. I suspect that this tour is going to be wilder than it has been in years past so we are looking forward to it.
