DROPKICK MURPHYS And RANCID Announce Co-Headlining 'Boston To Berkeley II' North American Tour

DROPKICK MURPHYS And RANCID Announce Co-Headlining 'Boston To Berkeley II' North American Tour

This May, DROPKICK MURPHYS and RANCID will hit the road together for the first time since 2017, for the co-headlining "Boston To Berkeley II" tour with special guest Jesse Ahern supporting. As was the case on the original "From Boston To Berkeley" run in 2017, the final band of the night will vary by date, with either DROPKICK MURPHYS or RANCID as the closing act.

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.

DROPKICK MURPHYS founder Ken Casey said: "We're excited to team up with our old friends RANCID again for the second edition of the 'Boston To Berkeley' tour!"

Frederiksen said: "Looking forward to getting out with the DROPKICK MURPHYS again for the second edition of our 'Boston To Berkeley' tour in May. This is one you won't wanna miss."
