Dropkick Murphys have announced their annual “St. Patrick’s Day Tour,” kicking off in February 2022 and culminating with four hometown shows in Boston.
The veteran punk band released its 10th studio LP, Turn Up That Dial, back in April of this year, and recently completed a co-headlining run with Rancid in support of the album.
For the 2022 jaunt, Dropkick Murphys will hit the road with opening acts The Bombpops and The Rumjacks. The outing kicks off February 21st in Reading, Pennsylvania, and runs through a “St. Patrick’s Day Week” series of four shows in Boston, including three at the House of Blues and a tour-closing March 20th gig at Roadrunner. That final show will feature a support set from Pennywise singer Jim Lindberg in place of The Bombpops.
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, November 12th, via Ticketmaster, with pre-sales beginning Thursday (November 11th).
