Dropkick Murphys were due to play Oklahoma City yesterday as part of their ongoing tour in support of their latest album, “Signed And Sealed In Blood.” Due to Friday’s severe weather that ripped through Oklahoma for the second time in a week, the band got stuck in Boston where they’d been playing the Boston Strong fundraiser concert, and were forced to cancel the OKC date.
Some of the band’s crew, however, had already gone ahead to OKC and “they spent the night in the hotel’s basement tornado shelter.”
In an effort to help raise funds for the people impacted by the back-to-back tornadoes, Dropkick Murphys have unveiled a “Stand With Oklahoma” t-shirt. As usual when the Dropkicks announce a fundraiser, 100% proceeds from the shirt will be funneled to the band’s Claddagh Fund and will be sent directly to victims. Click here to get one, but do it fast; their Boston Marathon bombing t-shirts sold out in a few days.
