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 24 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 15-18). Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday, December 8 at www.DropkickMurphys.com,  starting at 10:00 a.m. local time.

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 US 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 16 at 6:00 p.m. 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.
