Dropkick Murphys cancel Tulsa, Oklahoma show after bus accident


The Dropkick Murphys have cancelled their show tonight in Tulsa, Oklahoma due to their bus killing a pedestrian when they ran in front of the bands bus. The accident occurred just north of Austin, Texas. Police suspect a suicide. The band had performed in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday night and were on their way to Tusla to perform at Cain’s Ballroom. The band has posted the following message on their Facebook page.

Hello Tulsa fans. We have some tough news – we have to cancel tonight’s show at Cain’s Ballroom.

After last nights San Antonio show we were enroute to the dallas airport to drop off Al and then continue on to Tulsa (as we mentioned yesterday Al is flying home for the funeral of a life long friend)
Sadly however, just north of Austin we were involved in a tragic and fatal accident when a pedestrian suddenly ran onto the highway in front of our tour bus. Police suspect a suicide.

We were left with a driver that has been severely shaken up by the accident and a bus too damaged to continue onto Tulsa.

Throughout the early morning hours we tried every possible way to get our band and gear to Tulsa but we’ve simply run out of time.
As much as it pains us to miss a show and we truly apologize for it, we’d like to stop and acknowledge that a man has lost his life. Please keep him and any family he might have in your prayers.

All tickets purchased via phone or Internet will be automatically refunded. Those who bought tickets in-person can return to the Cain’s box office during business hours for a refund.
Tulsa: thanks for your support and understanding. We will see you soon!

Love, DKM


The band then posted the following message as an update.

Thank you all so much for your compassion. We appreciate the thoughts and prayers on behalf of all involved. On a good note our support acts Bryan McPherson and Blood or Whiskey are already in Tulsa and will be playing a FREE show at The Hunt Club. It’s just around the corner from Cain’s Ballroom. These are two of the most amazing live acts we’ve ever toured with. If you could please show them some love we would be grateful.

Bryan is on at 9pm and Blood or Whiskey at 10pm.

The Hunt Club, 224 N. Main Street, 918-599-9200www.thehuntclubtulsa.com
