Celtic punk icons Dropkick Murphys will embark on a 20-year anniversary headlining tour in 2016. The trek kicks off February 18 at House Of Blues in Cleveland and wraps up with the band’s traditional hometown run of Boston shows St. Patrick’s Day week.

"It's been an honor and a privilege to do this band for twenty years,” says Dropkick Murphys’ bassist/vocalist Ken Casey. “Considering the band started on a bet, I'm pretty damn proud of what we've been able to accomplish. After twenty years, we are more grateful and enthusiastic than ever… the best is yet to come!”

Both Tiger Army and Darkbuster will serve as supporting acts. Tickets are set to go on sale Friday, November 27. A full list of dates and locations can be found below.
