Dropkick Murphys are set to wrap up their very special acoustic This Machine…Theater Tour on November 19, but won’t be gone from the road for long as they gear up for their annual St. Patrick’s Day shows. Dropkick Murphys have now announced the full run of dates for Pega Presents…Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s Day 2023 Tour. The full-throttle rock tour launches March 1 in Charlotte and culminates with four hometown Boston shows, March 16, 17, 18 & 19. The Rumjacks and Jesse Ahern open most shows.
The DKM St. Patrick’s Day Tour’s hometown shows in Boston include March 16, 17 and 18 at the new MGM Music Hall at Fenway and March 19 at House Of Blues Boston. Very special guests Turnpike Troubadours join Dropkick Murphys for all three shows at MGM Music Hall at Fenway, while Nikki Lane alsojoins the bill on March 16. Tickets for March 17, 18 and 19 are sold out, but a limited number of tickets are still available for the March 16 show, which was added due to fan demand.
Tickets for the newly announced Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s Day 2023 Tour shows go on sale this Friday, November 18 at 10:00 AM local time in most markets. Visit www.DropkickMurphys.com to purchase tickets.
Dropkick Murphys’ current theater tour and new album This Machine Still Kills Fascists have received widespread praise from fans and media. In a recent show review, Americana Highways noted: “The record itself, backed by [Woody] Guthrie’s kindred, rebellious spirit, hit as hard as anything the Murphys have ever done…Throughout the show, the new songs hit as well as the old favorites.”
In a review of the new album This Machine Still Kills Fascists, No Depression summed up Dropkick Murphys’ connection not only to Guthrie’s lyrics but to his working class ethos: “No current act has done more to preserve and advance the legacy of Woody Guthrie…Nearly 60 years since his death, the struggles of working men and women and political oppression continue unabated. Those in need remain unheard by people in power. But much like Woody Guthrie, Dropkick Murphys are still out there fighting the good fight.”
As a special bonus for fans, on November 19 at 9 pm CT, Dropkick Murphys will live stream the last night of their current This Machine…Theater Tour from Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, best known as the home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 to 1974. Tickets for this special live stream event are available at www.DropkickMurphys.com and include a 72-hour replay window.
Fans can also check out Dropkick Murphys online via their upcoming SiriusXM Outlaw Country Session, which premieres November 18 at 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT. Visit http://siriusxm.us/DKM to hear the performance.
Dropkick Murphys‘ album This Machine Still Kills Fascists (released via the band’s Dummy Luck Music / [PIAS]) is unlike anything they’ve done to date: A full album of songs that bring Woody Guthrie’s words to life. Not a tribute album or a collection of covers, This Machine Still Kills Fascists is a collaboration between Dropkick Murphys and Woody Guthrie – artists separated by time and space, but connected by a common philosophy – to create something entirely new.

About Dropkick Murphys: Dropkick Murphys proudly remain Boston’s rock ‘n’ roll underdogs turned champions. Since 1996, the boys have created the kind of music that’s meant to be chanted at last call, in packed arenas, and during the fourth quarter, third period, or ninth inning of a comeback rally. Their celebrated discography includes four consecutive Billboard top 10 album debuts (2021’s Turn Up That Dial, 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory, Signed and Sealed in Blood, Going Out In Style), along with 2005’s gold-selling The Warrior’s Code featuring the near double platinum classic “I’m Shipping Up To Boston.” Whether you caught a legendary gig at The Rathskeller (The Rat) under Kenmore Square, found the band by taking the T to Newbury Comics to cop Do Or Die in ’98, discovered them in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award winning The Departed, or saw ‘em throw down at Coachella (or one of hundreds of other festivals), you’ve become a part of their extended family. Dropkick Murphys’ music has generated half-a-billion streams, they’ve quietly moved 8 million-plus units worldwide and the band has sold out gigs on multiple continents. In 2020, the band was one of the first to embrace streaming performances, starting with their Streaming Up From Boston St. Patrick’s Day virtual performance. It was followed by last year’s landmark Streaming Outta Fenway livestream, which drew more than 5.9 million viewers and held the #3 spot on Pollstar’s “Top 2020 Livestreams” chart. Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s Day Stream 2021…Still Locked Down, was #1 on Pollstar’s Livestream chart for the week ending March 22, 2021, logging over 1 million views. Dropkick Murphys return September 30 with their first-ever all-acoustic album, This Machine Still Kills Fascists (Dummy Luck Music / [PIAS]), followed by their first-ever seated theater tour kicking off in late October. This Machine Still Kills Fascists breathes musical life into mostly unpublished lyrics by the legendary Woody Guthrie, curated for the band by Woody’s daughter Nora Guthrie.
