Dropkick Murphys and Rancid have announced their “Boston To Berkeley” Tour, with The Bronx as special guests on most dates. The tour is a follow up to their first “Boston To Berkeley” run in 2017.

Dropkick Murphys and Rancid will also play several festivals in the States, including Riot Fest In Chicago (September 18) and Aftershock In Sacramento (October 8).

The tour, originally scheduled for May 2020, runs from August 10 – October 16. The final band of the night will vary by date, with either Dropkick Murphys or Rancid as the closing act. 

Rancid’s Tim Armstrong said:

“Looking forward to hitting the road with the Dropkick Murphys again for the second edition of our Boston To Berkeley Tour.  Our good buddies The Bronx will be joining us on tour as well.  See ya in the pit!”

Dropkick Murphys’ Ken Casey said:

“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 the country by storm.” 

Rancid and Dropkick Murphys have a long and important history together. Back in 1997, Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen came across a copy of Dropkick Murphys’ original EP at a friend’s house. He turned it over to his bandmate and Hellcat Records president Tim Armstrong, who quickly snatched up the band for his new label.
