The Celtic rockers have played on St. Patrick’s Day for the past 24 years. With most concerts, tours and major events being cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19, this years show promises to be very different. In an attempt to slow the spread of the virus, Dropkick has axed their annual concert and instead, will livestream a free performance with no fans.

One of the first of its kind, this major “no attendees” concert may encourage other musicians to follow suit.

Catch Dropkick Murphys LIVE from Boston on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook tomorrow night at 7 pm.
