Dropkick Murphys, Bruce Springsteen to Stream Show From Fenway Park Friday

Boston’s own Dropkick Murphys is planning to kick off the summer with a virtual show straight from Fenway Park… and they’re bringing The Boss!

The free-to-watch Streaming Outta Fenway live event will take place on Friday, May 29 at 6 p.m. ET and will feature a “double play” – one song from the Murphys at an empty Fenway Park and one from Bruce Springsteen, who will be joining remotely. You can catch all the action live on the Dropkick Murphys’ Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Twitch pages.

Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys told CNN that the show is being put on to lift the spirit of local fans who are missing Fenway’s Boston Red Sox games and first-class concerts, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I think that it is somewhat of a symbolic place in regards to how Bostonians think of summertime," Casey said. "I think this was kind of the next best way to let everyone get in and see the park with some activity going on."

The Murphys’ St. Patrick’s Day stream, which was broadcasted just as the pandemic started to hit the United States, reportedly reached 10 million viewers.

The Fenway show will raise money for the Resiliency Fund, Feeding America and Habitat for Humanity and is being presented by Boston-area tech company Pega. There will be a text-to-donate campaign running during the event.
