Bruce Springsteen to perform virtually with Dropkick Murphys at concert held in an empty Fenway Park

Courtesy of PEGABruce Springsteen will take part, virtually, in a special concert that will feature his pals Dropkick Murphys performing at an empty Fenway Park in Boston later this month.

The show, dubbed Streaming Outta Fenway, will find the Boston punk heroes playing without an audience on the infield dirt of the famous ballpark, with The Boss himself joining remotely. They’ll play two songs: one Dropkick tune, and one Bruce track.

You can watch the socially distant show streaming live online via Dropkick’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Twitch pages next Friday, May 29, at 6 p.m. ET.

The stream will help raise money for the COVID-19 relief efforts of a number of charities, including the Boston Resiliency Fund, Feeding America, and Habitat for Humanity.
