BOSTON (WHDH) - The Dropkick Murphys will be live streaming their performance at Fenway Park for free at the end of the month.

The concert will be streamed on the band’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Twitch pages.

“That’s right – we are gonna be the first band in HISTORY to play right on the dirt and grass of the infield diamond – and we will be doing it FREE – for YOU, THE BEST FANS IN THE WORLD,” he wrote. “This free live stream will have NO AUDIENCE in the stands….
