Bruce Springsteen to guest on Dropkick Murphys livestream concert

Bruce Springsteen will make a guest appearance on a newly-announced “Straight Outta Fenway” livestream concert by the Dropkick Murphys.

The New Jersey rocker will join the Boston band remotely during the free online May 29 event, which will start at 6PM EDT.

“We’ll be streaming out to you a free full electric livestream performance from the hallowed grounds of Fenway Park in Boston!,” says the Dropkick Murphys. “That's right - we are gonna be the first band in history to play right on the dirt and grass of the infield diamond - and we will be doing it FREE - for YOU, the best fans in the world!!

“To make sure this is a night to remember, our friend Bruce Springsteen will be joining us remotely for a Fenway Double Play: we’ll play together - one of ours + one of his.”

“This free live stream will have no audience in the stands,”
they add. “That’s another first - no band has ever played a full show in an empty sports stadium!! This means you get to take part in this show with your rowdy kids and neighbors right from your own living room or backyard.”

“’Streaming Outta Fenway’ will raise funds for Boston Resiliency Fund, Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston and Feeding America; these organizations put their donations to work NOW - to help real people in need.

“If YOU want to add to the contributions of DKM and the sponsors, you can - and you don’t even have to wait until the stream starts. You can DONATE NOW !! TEXT TO DONATE by texting “DONATE” to 404-994-3559

“We can't wait to play for you on MAY 29 at 6PM Boston time!!”

Springsteen has performed with the group in the past, and was a guest on “Peg o’ My Heart”, a track from their 2011 album, “Going Out In Style”; he also appeared on “Rose Tattoo” on the band’s 2013 release, “Rose Tattoo: For Boston Charity EP.”

Dropkick Murphys recently played a livestream show from a secret location in Boston on St Patrick's Day.
