True to their annual tradition – with a twist for these turbulent times – Dropkick Murphys will unite with music fans from around the globe for Dropkick Murphys St. Patrick’s Day Stream 2021...Still Locked Down to virtually celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at 10am on this Thursday, March 18th at 10am AEDT (Wednesday, March 17 at 7:00 PM ET / 4:00 PM PT). The free streaming online concert - with no in-person audience - will be simulcast worldwide via www.DKMstream.com, and on their YouTube channel.
Dropkick Murphys founder Ken Casey explains, “Instead of charging for tickets, we’re going to ‘pass the virtual hat’ so you can donate what you’d like to help support us in our efforts to keep paying our employees. When we did the first two free live streams for charity, our fans were super generous and we raised lots of money for good causes. But frankly, we’ve been out of work for over a year, so this one, we’ve gotta make about us. Of course, a portion will also go to charity, as always! ”
People who donate in advance or during the stream (via www.DKMstream.com) will see their name scroll across the ticker at the bottom of the screen during Still Locked Down.
Still Locked Down will feature a variety of fan favorites, as well as select songs from the band’s new studio album, Turn Up that Dial (Out April 30) and available to pre-order HERE
After last year’s Streaming Outta Fenway and Streaming Up From Boston live stream performances, Dropkick Murphys are now focusing on bringing fans the show they’d expect to see in person. The St. Patrick’s Day 2021 streaming event will feature Dropkick Murphys performing socially distanced on an arena-sized stage with a full LED screen and a brand new video show directed by the band's longtime friend Josh Adams from Mindpool Live. Josh has also directed two Dropkick Murphys concert films and is the director of live concert video productions for Foo Fighters.
