INDIO, CA - APRIL 15: Musician Dave King of the band Flogging Molly performs during Day 1 of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival 2011 held at the Empire Polo Club on April 15, 2011 in Indio, California; DETROIT, MI - JUNE 08: Al Barr of Dropkick Murphys performs during the 2013 Orion Music + More Festival at Belle Isle Park on June 8, 2013 in Detroit, Michigan.

Most of us have likely heard of the phrase “Christmas Miracle,” but the recent announcement from Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly might be the very first “St. Patrick’s Day Miracle” not counting the times you didn’t get sick or arrested during March 17th revelry.

For the first time ever, the two iconic Celtic punk bands will be hitting the road together on a series of tour dates slated for this June.  Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com.  (See list of full itinerary below.)

A word to venues hosting these shows:  Makes sure you have plenty of Guinness in stock for these gigs.  I once attended a Flogging Molly show where the bar ran out of the popular stout before FM even hit the stage.  It wasn’t pretty.  Don’t make that mistake!
