(WTNH) — Amid coronavirus spread concerns, events big and small are being canceled to slow the spread of the highly-contagious COVID-19. But one band is still delivering some entertainment for their fans who can’t gather to enjoy a concert.

The Dropkick Murphys will be streaming a free concert for Saint Patrick’s Day Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST!

On twitter Monday the band wrote, “The show must go on! We’re streaming up from Boston for St. Patrick’s Day.”

The Celtic, punk band from Quincy, MA is best known for their 2005 anthem “I’m shipping up to Boston.” They play in their ‘hometown’ of Boston every Saint Patrick’s Day.

Their upcoming shows are canceled due to CDC recommendations for ‘social distancing’ to slow the spread of the coronavirus across the country and the world.
