Flogging Molly, the Irish/American seven-piece Celtic punk rabble-rousing ensemble, wanted to do something authentic for St. Patrick’s Day 2021 — so the band will be traveling to Dublin, Ireland, to play a special holiday live stream concert event from the historic Whelan’s Irish Pub.

The show is being co-sponsored by Bushmills Irish Whiskey, and looks to be just about the perfect way to spend a few hours at home for St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s a trailer showcasing the event to come:

More about the show and ticket information, per a news release:

Early bird tickets for the livestream are available now via FloggingMollyLive.com and will run through Friday, March 12 at midnight EST. Various exclusive streaming bundles include a t-shirt, limited edition poster, Lucky Bag, virtual meet & greet with the band, and access to a stripped-down acoustic set of fan favorites and Irish traditional songs. The show begins at 12 pm PT, 3 pm ET, and 7 pm Ireland/GMT time, and from there, purchasers will have full access to stream the entire show whenever they like through midnight ET on Sunday, March 21.

Tickets will start at $15 per household, with unlimited streams available across 5 days (March 17-21).  The live airing, pre-show and after-show acoustic performance will be directed by Dublin-based director Richie Smyth (Irish director of multiple U2 videos, feature films, Guinness commercial spots and more), and Flogging Molly have partnered with global event promoter Danny Wimmer Presents for the production. A portion of the band’s proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to a favorite charity of theirs, Sweet Relief’s COVID-19 Crew Fund, which supports road crew members grounded and out of work during the global pandemic. 

Said Flogging Molly founder Dave King of this special event:

 “In any house, even in the darkest of times, there’s always a room, a room for celebration. In over twenty years together, this is our first ever show from the Emerald Isle on St. Patrick’s Day. Welcome to Ireland. Let’s celebrate! From our family to yours, Sláinte!”

If you’re REALLY looking for some Irish-themed musical fun for St. Paddy’s Day, Dropkick Murphys will also be hosting a festive streaming event that same evening. Get a double-shot of Celtic punk music in your living room!
