Not to be beaten by lockdown measures, DROPKICK MURPHYS have announced a major live hometown performance at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team.
The band will be performing to an empty venue, but the gig will be streamed live via the band’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Twitch pages on Friday 29 May at 6pm Boston time / 11pm UK time.
Dropkick Murphys will play a full show, and will be joined remotely by BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN for a special 'double play' featuring one of their song and one of his.
During the live stream, a text-to-donate campaign will support three non-profits: Boston Resiliency Fund, Feeding America®, and Habitat for Humanity, Greater Boston.
The band previously played a live-streamed show on St Patrick's Day, which reached more than 13 million people and raised more than $60,000 for the Boston Resiliency Fund, a charity providing essential services to Boston residents—including first responders and critical care providers—whose health and well-being are most immediately impacted by COVID-19.
Dropkick Murphys recently played a sold-out headline show at London's Alexandra Palace with special guests Cock Sparrer. Their latest single 'Mick Jones Nicked My Pudding' was released in April.
