Dropkick Murphys, Rancid tour to start in Minnesota this summer

The bands will co-headline the concerts.

Dropkick Murphys are shipping up to Waite Park with co-headlining act Rancid. 

The bands are going on tour together for the "Boston to Berkeley II Tour," marking their first tour together since 2017 and the second edition of the tour. 

“Can’t wait to get back out there and kick the touring door open again. This is a great lineup and we are gonna take the country by storm," Dropkick Murphys' Ken Casey said in a news release. 

The tour is rescheduled from May 2020, and begins at The Ledge Amphitheater in Waite Park, Minnesota, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 10, and finishes Oct. 16 in Los Angeles. 

The final band of the night will vary by date, with either Dropkick — the band from Boston known for its rock songs people belt at sporting events and bars — or Rancid — the Celtic punk band from Berkely, California — closing out the night. The Bronx will also perform during most shows on the tour. 

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on June 18. You can buy them online here

The Ledge Amphitheater is situated between two quarries just outside of St. Cloud in Stearns County. The venue hosts up to 6,000 guests. 

The day after the Dropkick-Rancid show, The Beach Boys will take the stage at The Ledge.
