Dropkick Murphys team up with Flogging Molly for co-headlining US tour

This is the first time the two Celtic rock outfits are teaming up for a tour. Both bands will be touring in support of their 2017 studio albums.

St. Patrick's Day might have come and gone but the Celtic spirit is just picking up in the music world. Odds are that you listened to some Dropkick Murphys over the weekend. But don't stop listening yet, because the Celtic rockers have joined forces with  Flogging Molly for a co-headlining US tour this summer.

Their first such outing together, the 17-date tour kicks off on the first day of June in Cleveland and includes stops at the Stone Pony Summerstage in Asbury Park, NJ; the Forest Hill Stadium in Forest Hills, NY; and the Montebello Rockfest in Montebello, Quebec before wrapping up on June 23 in Gilford, New Hampshire.

There's a pair of festival dates along the way, with Cincinnati's Bunbury Festival featuring just the Dropkick Murphys. Tickets for the shows are now on sale, and you can grab them here. You can also visit the official websites of Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly for more information. 

Dropkick Murphy's last release was 2017's '11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory' which marked their ninth studio album and was released via the band's very own Born & Bred Records. Meanwhile, Flogging Molly will be supporting their last release, 'Life Is Good', which released last year and was their first studio album in six years.
