and from there, purchasers will have full access to stream the entire show whenever they like through
midnight ET on Sunday, March 21.
As we all know too well, lockdown has a way of making even the basics extremely complicated. Flogging
Molly’s Dave King and Bridget Regan have been in Wexford, Ireland since lockdown was declared nearly
one year ago, while the rest of the band have been in their homes across the U.S. And while there is
nothing easy about crossing international borders for a full production live show at this moment in
history – quarantine policies are ever-changing as the global response continues to evolve – it’s this
reality that we all share, which is exactly why the band felt it needed to happen this St. Patrick’s
Day. With the safety of the band, touring and film crew, and everyone on hand as top priority, the next
priority was a good time – and a loud, raucous, and joyous celebration of all that we – the band and fans
– have to be thankful for.
Says Dave King: “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!”
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.
Flogging Molly is comprised of Dave King (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, bodhran), Bridget Regan (violin,
tin whistle, vocals), Dennis Casey (guitar, vocals), Matt Hensley (accordion, concertina, vocals), Nathen
Maxwell (bass guitar, vocals), Spencer Swain (mandolin, banjo, guitar, vocals), and Mike Alonso (drums,
percussion). Starting out as the house band for Molly Malone’s in Los Angeles and building a loyal
following through endless touring, Flogging Molly has become a staple in the punk scene over the past
20 years, kicking off with its raucous debut showcase, Swagger, and continuing through it’s five additional studio albums. With numerous late-night television appearances under their belt, its sell-
out Salty Dog Cruise through the Caribbean, and yearly St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Los Angeles, the band is currently working on the Rise Records follow-up to its latest LP, Life Is Good. Recently, the band
reissued Swagger with exclusive tracks, an Irish traditional set, a 60-minute video feature, and exclusive
merch in a collectible box set.
