Flogging Molly, Violent Femmes, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes & THICK announce tour
Two bands who mix acoustic folk music and punk rock in different ways, Flogging Molly and Violent Femmes, will do a co-headlining tour this summer and fall. Support comes from punk covers supergroup Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and Epitaph-signed indie-punk up and comers THICK.
Flogging Molly’s Dave King says, “What a joy it is to announce our co-headline tour this coming September/October 2021 with the legendary Violent Femmes. We in the Flogging Molly family cannot wait to share the stage with such an amazing group, so please join us in celebrating the return of what we’ve all truly missed: the live music experience. We cannot wait to see you all! So take care dear friends, till we raise a glass to one and all, Slainté!”
The tour kicks off in the Midwest before hitting the Northeast for shows at Asbury Park’s Stone Pony Summer Stage on 9/12 (tickets), NYC’s Pier 17 on 9/21 (tickets), New Haven’s Westside Music Bowl on 9/22 (tickets), and more, and then it heads to the West Coast before wrapping back up in the Midwest. Tickets go on sale Friday (6/25) at 10 AM local time with presales beforehand. All dates are listed below.
Violent Femmes are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, and they recently reissued the Add It Up (1981-1993) compilation for the occasion. Stream that below. They’re also playing the ’80s-alternative-themed Cruel World festival in 2022.
Flogging Molly are doing their Salty Dog cruise in 2022 with both Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and THICK, as well as Descendents, The Distillers, Frank Turner, and more.
