Hot on the heels of the announcement of the dates for Flogging Molly's 2013 Green 17 Tour, Boston Irish punks Dropkick Murphys are announcing the dates for their own St. Patrick's Day tour.
This year, the Dropkick Murphys 2013 St. Patrick's Day Tour kicks off on February 21 in Cleveland, OH, wrapping up with the annual multi-day run in Boston, but this time around the band is realizing their dream of headlining at the Boston Garden (now known as TD Garden) on March 15. That date, billed as the Dropkick Murphys Irish Festival, will be a two-stage festival that will feature what should be a pretty massive lineup.
The band's newest album Signed and Sealed in Blood is slated for a January 8 release.
Preorders for the album and tickets for the tour go on sale on Friday, November 23 through the band's site.
Tour dates are listed below.
