Dropkick Murphys Cancels Tulsa Show After Fatal Accident

SAN ANTONIO, TX (CBS) — Boston-based Irish rock band Dropkick Murphys cancelled their scheduled Tulsa, Okla. show after their tour bus was involved in a fatal pedestrian accident, the band posted on their Facebook page Sunday.

The band was en route to the Dallas airport after a show in San Antonio, Tx.,  Saturday when the tour bus they were riding in hit a pedestrian on the highway.

“Police suspect a suicide,”the band wrote on Facebook. “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.”

The driver was “shaken up by the accident” and their bus was too damaged to continue the drive.

The band will refund all tickets bought to their Sunday evening Tulsa show.
