Dropkick Murphys have announced a HUGE event for this upcoming Friday, May 29th. They’re bringing their live show to Fenway Park for an audience-free performance called Streaming Outta Fenway, and via free livestream fans will be able to watch from home and see the band joined (remotely) by Bruce Springsteen for a special “double play” of one DKM song and one Springsteen song. WOW.
Everything will kick off live on the internet on Friday, May 29 at 6:00pm ET / 3:00pm PT on the band’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Twitch pages. The event will raise money for multiple charities and is presented by Boston-area tech company Pega, a leading provider of digital transformation software.
The Streaming Outta Fenway performance from Dropkick Murphys is one in a long history of shows the band has played at the park, but it will be the first–and possibly the only–time that a band plays on the baseball diamond at Fenway Park. The infield dirt is considered “sacred ground” to baseball fans, but with the baseball season on hold because of COVID-19, an exception has been made for the beloved Boston band.
The first-ever live streamed music performance from the venerated ballpark adds a new chapter to Fenway’s music history, with two of its foremost history-makers. Dropkick Murphys have rallied the fans for the Red Sox’ four World Series championships this century, as well as headlining Fenway in 2011. Bruce Springsteen performed the first-ever ballpark-wide concert at Fenway back in 2003. The event also marks the first music performance without an in-person audience at a major U.S. arena, stadium or ballpark.
Tune in on the band’s YouTube page for the show.
