With the grit and tenacity that have exemplified their history to date, Flogging Molly is excited to announce their upcoming St. Patrick’s Day live stream performance. Taking place Wednesday, March 17 at the iconic Whelan’s Irish Pub in Dublin, Ireland, in partnership with Bushmills Irish Whiskey®, the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, Flogging Molly will put on a St. Paddy’s Day party for the record books, bringing the good times, great whiskey, vivid stories, and music of the band – straight from Ireland – directly to fans around the world.
Early bird tickets for the live stream are available now via here and will run through Friday, March 12 at midnight EST. Various exclusive streaming bundles include a t-shirt, limited edition poster, Lucky Bag, virtual meet & greet with the band, and access to a stripped-down acoustic set of fan favorites and Irish traditional songs. The show begins at 12 pm PT and from there, purchasers will have full access to stream the entire show whenever they for five day (March 17-21) for just $15 per household.
Additionally, in lead up to the event, Bushmills® is offering fans the opportunity to partake in their “First Whiskey” program. As a friendly Irish gesture ahead of St. Patrick’s Day, whiskey lovers 21+ across the U.S. can safely order a Bushmills Irish Whiskey® to-go from their neighborhood pub and the beloved Irish whiskey will cover the cost, through Thursday, March 18. Terms and conditions apply, learn more details on the Bushmills® “First Whiskey” Rebate Program here.
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!”
