It may seem too early to plan for St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s never too soon in Dropkick Murphys’ book. The Celtic rockers have just announced dates for their 2014 St. Patrick’s Day Tour, and the tour will set off on Feb. 18 at the House of Blues in Cleveland and travel through over a dozen North American cities. Check out the full tour roster below.

In Dropkick Murphys tradition, the tour will close out with several shows in the group’s hometown of Boston. Meanwhile, the location of the band’s St. Patrick’s Day show is still a secret, although it will take place somewhere in Boston. Lucero and Skinny Lister will support Dropkick Murphys at select shows.

Head to the shows, and you’ll see Dropkick Murphys guitarist James Lynch slinging a Les Paul. “It’s such a nice, solid, heavy instrument, and you know you have something quality in your hands,” he told Gibson.com when asked about his affection for Les Pauls. “It’s just great sounding.”
