Dropkick Murphys long awaited headline show at Wembley Arena is almost here.
The band’s UK tour was delayed by almost 12 months, but for fans it will hopefully be finally worth the wait. It has seen the Boston group performing in Dublin and Belfast, as well as Glasgow and Manchester.
For the next stop, Dropkick Murphys will be headlining a show at the Cardiff International Arena before heading to the capital to play the OVO Arena Wembley. The band is supported by The Rumjacks, Jesse Ahern and Pennywise.
Here is all you need to know about the UK tour:
When is the Dropkick Murphys concert at Wembley Arena?
Dropkick Murpheys will be headlining a show at the OVO Arena Wembley in London on Saturday (21 January). It is one of the final dates on the current UK tour - and what a way to bring the curtain down.
The full address of the venue is: Arena Square, Engineers Way, London HA9 0AA. The doors will open at 6pm approximately and the concert will end around 11pm but times are subject to change.
Why was the tour delayed to 2023?
In a statement last year announcing that the UK tour was being pushed back to 2023, Dropkick Murphys said: “We are broken hearted to announce that the January/February 2022 Ireland / UK / Europe tour is now officially postponed to 2023. Covid restrictions in various countries and the general uncertainty of the times makes it impossible for us to make this tour work in the current circumstances.
“The new dates are on our website. ALL 2022 TICKETS WILL BE HONORED FOR THE RESCHEDULED SHOWS. Lastly, The Interrupters will not be on the rescheduled 2023 shows - keep an eye out for support announcements. We CAN’T wait to see you all soon!!”
