Dropkick Murphys Announce Dates For St. Patrick’s Day Tour 2018 With Openers Agnostic Front & Bim Skala Bim

The tour kicks off at Mohegan Sun Arena on February 24th

UNCASVILLE, CT (December 5, 2017) – Dropkick Murphys have announced the dates for their headlining St. Patrick’s Day Tour 2018. Marking their first U.S. tour of the year, the run will kick off on February 24th at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT and culminate with the band’s annual hometown run of Boston shows St. Patrick’s Day Week (March 15th – 18th). The band will perform live in the Arena at 7:30pm.

Tickets are $35.00 and go on sale Friday, December 8th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log on to Ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000. Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning on Saturday, December 9th, subject to availability.

Tour openers include New York Hardcore icons Agnostic Front and Boston Ska pioneers Bim Skala Bim, who both have a long history with Dropkick Murphys and have shared bills with the band since the early days of DKM. Bim Skala Bim was a co-opener for The Mighty Mighty Bosstones’ “Boston On The Road” tour in 1997, which introduced Dropkick Murphys to a national audience. Dropkick Murphys and Agnostic Front last toured the U.S. together in 1998, which was followed by the DKM/AF 7” split Unity in 1999.

Prior to the St. Patrick’s Day Tour, fans are also invited to enjoy a rare opportunity to see Dropkick Murphys and professional boxing in a small intimate setting at the Dropkick Murphys & Murphys Boxing Christmas Celebration on Saturday, December 16th at 6:00pm at Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville, MA. Proceeds from the event benefit the band’s charitable foundation the Claddagh Fund, as well as Ernie Boch’s Music Drives Us Foundation.

Dropkick Murphys—Al Barr (lead vocals), Tim Brennan (guitars, accordion, mellotron, whistles, vocals), Ken Casey (lead vocals, bass guitar), Jeff DaRosa (banjo, bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica, acoustic guitars, vocals), Matt Kelly (drums, percussion, vocals), James Lynch (guitar, vocals) — are touring in support of their 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory album, released through the band’s own Born & Bred Records earlier this year. The album debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and was the #1 independently released album. There’s a feeling of purpose throughout the album, influenced by the band’s work with The Claddagh Fund, a charity the band established in 2009 to help support addiction recovery as well as children’s and veterans’ organizations. Dropkick Murphys are hands-on in raising funds, mentoring, and lending a helping hand with veterans, youth sports, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Many of the songs reflect these experiences, and the band’s sadness, anger and dismay at the opiate epidemic ravaging the country — in particular, Boston and New England — and also their feeling of pride and optimism at the sight of those who have turned their lives around. Dropkick Murphys have become ambassadors for their city. In Boston, it seems like everybody knows someone connected to the band whether by blood, friendship, or the time they shared a brew at a Bruins game. They’ve built a legacy that does Beantown proud.
