Frank Turner and Dropkick Murphys Book North American Tour
Published Nov 15, 2011Folksy British punk Frank Turner recently announced plans to follow up his 2008 odds'n'sods compilation The First Three Years with another called The Second Three Years. Well, by the looks of things, the third three years will be just as productive for Turner, as he's just announced plans to tour North American with the Dropkick Murphys.
The outing will last for a month, from February until late March of next year. Although the bulk of the dates are in the U.S., the tour will kick off with its lone Canadian date, which is at Toronto's Sound Academy on February 22. See the full collaborative schedule below.
Along the way, the Dropkick Murphys will be promoting this year's Going Out in Style. Turner, of course, will be selling The Second Three Years, which comes out in January.
Before the jaunt begins, both acts have international dates. Check out Turner's schedule here and the Dropkick Murphys' here.
