Flogging Molly celebrates St. Patrick’s Day 2022 with fans worldwide. In partnership with Bushmills Irish Whiskey®, from the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, the beloved Celtic rock band returns with their venerated Los Angeles festival at the Hollywood Palladium and a simultaneous livestream available via Floggingmolly.veeps.com.

Accompanying the performance news is word of the band’s first song in five years, “These Times Have Got Me Drinking,” which arrives on 10th March via Rise Records (pre-save: https://riserecords.lnk.to/TTHGMD). 

“It’s a perfect song for right now, I think it summarises everything our band is about – which is celebration with our loves ones in trying times. It’s about joy amidst, and in spite of, stuff trying to grind us down,” said Dave King, adding about the upcoming performance: “Being able to announce a return to the Hollywood Palladium for St. Patrick’s Day is a happy thing indeed. We can’t wait to be back in Los Angeles where it all began.”

Flogging Molly’s annual St. Patrick’s Day festivals in Los Angeles were halted due to the pandemic, with the 2020 event cancelled and the 2021 festivities livestreamed from Ireland. For 2022, the Los Angeles-by-way-of-Dublin based band have found a way to meld the best of both worlds. The free festival (RSVP via Floggingmolly.com) and the evening performance will both be broadcast via Floggingmolly.veeps.com. Online attendees will have a selection of exclusive merch items available to them.

The outdoor festival will take place on the Hollywood Palladium grounds. As a presenting sponsor, there will be Bushmills activations throughout, including photo opportunities and complimentary swag. Additional activity includes Irish dancers, games, food trucks, and performances from The Briggs, Hoist The Colors, Matt & Dennis acoustic, and Nathen DJ set. The evening concert includes openers Russkaja and Vandoliers.

The band recently announced two weeks of performances in the U.S., followed by the sold-out Salty Dog Cruise. Sailing from Miami on March 28, the four-day cruise also includes performances from the Descendents, The Distillers, Frank Turner, Agent Orange and more.
