Lucky No. 7 For Flogging Molly’s ‘Green 17’

The Irish-American Celtic Punk Band counts down to Saint Patrick’s Day with its seventh annual “Green 17” tour.

During the last three months Flogging Molly members holed up in Detroit writing songs for an upcoming 2011 release. Fans will get a taste of the new material on the tour along with those audience-pleasing favorites that bring fans back year after year.

“Green 17” begins in Dallas at House Of Blues Feb. 8, plays Houston’s House Of Blues Feb. 9 then travels to Lake Buena Vista near Orlando for a gig at, you guessed it, House Of Blues Feb. 11. Miami at the Fillmore is slotted for Feb. 12, and Feb. 14 finds the band in Atlanta at the Tabernacle.

Other stops include Atlantic City (Feb. 19), Philadelphia (Feb. 25), New York City (March 2), Nashville (March 5) and Minneapolis March 7.

The band plays Luckyman’s Saint Patrick Day’s Bash in Tempe Ariz., on March 17 and has two post-St. Paddy’s Day shows – Las Vegas ar the Beach at Mandalay Bay March 18 and Oakland at the Fox Theatre March 19.
