Dropkick Murphys have announced the initial dates for their 2012 St. Patrick’s Day North American Tour with supporting special guest Frank Turner. The annual trek kicks off February 22 in Toronto and wraps with the band’s second appearance at Washington, DC’s ShamrockFest (March 24). The tour includes a matinee and an evening show on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) at Tsongas Arena in Lowell, MA, just outside Boston, as well as Dropkick Murphys third annual performance after a Milwaukee Admirals hockey game at Bradley Center in Wisconsin (February 24).

Dropkick Murphys come to the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre on Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 at 7:30PM.  Also on the bill is Frank Turner with more to be announced.  General Admission tickets are $29.50.  They go on sale Friday, December 9th / 10AM at LiveNation.com or charge by phone 800-745-3000 and at Amphitheatre Box Office (day of show only).

All dates, acts and ticket prices are subject to change without notice. All tickets are subject to applicable taxes, parking and service and handling charges.


In addition, a deluxe digital edition of the group’s critically acclaimed Going Out In Style album–on the band-owned Born & Bred Records–will be released November 21. The package will include a companion digital release–Live From Fenway–recorded on September 8 and 9 in front of 20,000 Dropkick Murphys fans at the band’s sold out headlining dates at Boston’s legendary ballpark. An expanded physical version of the deluxe CD package will be released in March 2012.
