Rancid and Dropkick Murphys are co-headlining a 2021 US tour spanning 34 dates from August 10th to November 16th. The tour will launch in Waite Park, MN and end in Los Angeles. Most shows will feature The Bronx as Opening Support.
The two bands have a long history but haven’t toured together since 2017. They planned a tour beginning in May 2020, but postponed it due to Covid-19.
Dropkick Murphys released Turn Up That Dial this year, marking their 10th album. The album features more of their signature Celtic-inspired punk shanties. Rancid, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary together, last released the LP Troublemaker in 2017. Rumor has it they’re working on a new album as well.
Tim Armstrong of Rancid says they are “looking forward to hitting the road with the Dropkick Murphys again for the second edition of our Boston to Berkeley tour.” Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys agreed: “Can’t wait to get back out there and kick the touring door open again. This is a great lineup and we are gonna take this country by storm.”
Tickets went on sale last Friday, June 18th via Ticketmaster or the bands’ websites. You can check them out at RancidRancid.com or DropkickMurphys.com.
