Dropkick Murphys cancel show after tragedy

©Jo M. Wood Photography 2014The Dropkick Murphys canceled the Tulsa date on their current tour after a horrible tragedy occurred while the band was en route from Texas. Based on reports, a man ran out on the highway and was struck and killed by the band’s tour bus. You can read the full statement from the band below. As of now, it seems as though the rest of the tour will continue as planned.

Our thoughts are with all involved.

“Hello Tulsa fans. We have some tough news – we have to cancel tonight’s show at Cain’s Ballroom.

After last nights San Antonio show we were enroute to the dallas airport to drop off Al and then continue on to Tulsa (as we mentioned yesterday Al is flying home for the funeral of a life long friend)

Sadly however, just north of Austin we were involved in a tragic and fatal accident when a pedestrian suddenly ran onto the highway in front of our tour bus. Police suspect a suicide.

We were left with a driver that has been severely shaken up by the accident and a bus too damaged to continue onto Tulsa.

Throughout the early morning hours we tried every possible way to get our band and gear to Tulsa but we’ve simply run out of time.

As much as it pains us to miss a show and we truly apologize for it, we’d like to stop and acknowledge that a man has lost his life. Please keep him and any family he might have in your prayers.

All tickets purchased via phone or Internet will be automatically refunded. Those who bought tickets in-person can return to the Cain’s box office during business hours for a refund.

Tulsa: thanks for your support and understanding. We will see you soon!

Love, DKM”
