For the first time in 24 years, the Dropkick Murphys will not perform their annual St. Patrick’s Day concert, according to a statement released by the band last week.
But in lieu of the live performance, which was postponed due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak, the band announced Saturday they will perform a free livestream concert from Boston this Tuesday, March 17.
“The current world situation is the ONLY thing that would ever stop us from [performing],” the band posted on their website Saturday night. “So we came up with an idea we’re going to pull off this Tuesday, the night of St. Patrick’s Day.”
Viewers from all over the world can tune in via YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook Live, the band said. The performance will start at 7 p.m. in Boston, 4 p.m. on the west coast, 11 a.m. in London, and 12 a.m. in Berlin.
“This will be a full concert,” the band wrote. “The show must go on.”
