EVERETT, MA (December 2, 2019) - Encore Boston Harbor
will host Boston hometown favorites, Dropkick Murphys, on Friday, March 13 as part of their St. Patrick's Day week "Boston Blowout." Tickets are now on sale for this one-of-a-kind show in the Picasso Ballroom.
"We are extremely excited to have such a locally renowned group like Dropkick Murphys add to our outstanding public concert series," said Brian Gullbrants, President of Encore Boston Harbor. "As Boston's hometown casino, we couldn't think of a better way to kick off the week of St. Patrick's Day."
The band's annual St. Patrick's Day week shows are the peak of Dropkick Murphys' touring calendar. Historically, fans have traveled to Boston from around the world to experience these performances.
Since forming in 1996, Boston's Dropkick Murphys have sold a staggering seven million albums worldwide, with 2005's The Warrior's Code achieving an RIAA Gold certification and its smash single "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" nearing double platinum and appearing during a key moment of Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning The Departed. The band is touring in support of their "11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory" album, which is influenced by their work with The Claddagh Fund, a charity they established in 2009 to help support addiction recovery as well as children's and veteran's organizations.
