Dropkick Murphys & Rancid Announce Co-Headlining “Boston To Berkeley II” U.S. Tour With Special Guests Gerry Cinnamon & Jesse Ahern

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 guests Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Cinnamon (on select dates) and Jesse Ahern supporting. Each night will culminate with Dropkick Murphys and Rancid on stage together for a joint encore.

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.

Tickets are on sale now for the May 3 – 24 trek. This spring tour route will also feature festival appearances by Dropkick Murphys and Rancid at Epicenter (May 3 – Concord, NC), Welcome To Rockville (May 8 – Daytona Beach, FL) and Sonic Temple (May 17 – Columbus, OH).

 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! And we’ll be joined by Glasgow, Scotland superstar Gerry Cinnamon – on his first U.S. tour!”

 Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen said, “Looking forward to getting out with the Dropkick Murphys again for the second edition of our Boston To Berkeley tour in May. Gerry Cinnamon from Glasgow will be joining us for his first ever U.S. tour! This is one you won’t wanna miss.”
