Flogging Molly Announces 2017 North American Headlining Tour

Begorrah! With Saint Patrick’s Day coming at us this Friday, this particular tour will surely be the kind of announcement that will get your Irish up. Take a look at the details about the “Life Is Good” tour by Flogging Molly.

Flogging Molly announces their 2017 North American Headlining Tour which kicks off on May 4th in Oakland, CA and brings the band’s adrenaline-fueled live performances to cities including Vancouver, Denver, New York City, Montreal, Chicago and more. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 17 at 10:00am local time. The tour is in support of FLOGGING MOLLY’S long awaited new album LIFE IS GOOD out on June 2nd via Vanguard Records. Fans will be excited to know that every ticket order (in select markets) will include a digital download of the new album upon release.

Produced by Grammy Award winning Joe Chiccarelli (U2, White Stripes, Beck) and recorded in Dublin, Ireland, LIFE IS GOOD marks FLOGGING MOLLY’S first studio album in six years since 2011’s highly acclaimed Speed of Darkness which reached #9 on Billboard’s Top 200. Founded by Dublin-born frontman Dave King and fiddle-player Bridget Regan, FLOGGING MOLLY have long been hailed for their compelling lyrics of exile, rebellion, history and struggle told through exuberant anthems with a fierce blend of raucous punk/rock and traditional Irish music.

The band has just wrapped up their annual “Salty Dog Cruise” and will be heading to Los Angeles on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th for their “Devil’s Dance Floor” celebration at The Forum with special guests Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Mariachi El Bronx. Tickets are on sale now. The show will also be live streamed on TIDAL. Tune in on TIDAL.com/FloggingMolly beginning at 7:30pm PST.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve wanted to for some time, I’ve never managed to catch Flogging Molly in concert and that depresses me – until now! I say until now because we have tour dates that are stopping right in our metropolis and I am going to do my best to be a part of the show and bring you the story. I’m rather jealous of the folks seeing them on St. Patrick’s Day though since that has to be a blast. So what about you readers? Are ye ready to find the pot of gold with this rocking band? Let me know down in the comments below and have a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day.
