When the Zombie Apocalypse first took root, The Dropkick Murphys were one of the first bands to live stream shows. They did this for no other reason than to help us cope with the cancellation of show-after-show that was being announced in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. They knew where this was headed.
As luck would have it, Dropkick has a great following and that inaugural event drew a crazy amount of viewer, over 13 million. As they traditionally do, the band donated a good portion of the proceeds to a local charity.
With the success of that live stream performance, Dropkick is ready to do it again!
On Friday, May 29th Dropkick will team up with the Boss, that’s right, Bruce Springsteen and Dropkick, ONE NIGHT ONLY. The duo will play at the iconic Fenway Park. The event is titled Streaming Outta Fenway, the event starts at 6pm (Eastern).
As for the event itself, it is momentous… especially for Dropkick. The guys respect all there is about the BoSox and Fenway. This will most likely mark the only time the band will play on the infield, that’s right the hollowed grounds of the gran cathedral of baseball.
Dropkick will be playing with Bruce Springsteen remotely. They’ll be playing some of Springsteen’s biggest hits to entertain us all.
The event will also mark the first live fan-less performance at a major venue since the pandemic took root.
During the event, viewers will be encouraged to donate to three charities: the Boston Resiliency Fund, Feeding America, and Habitat for Humanity, Greater Boston.
