The Pogues
Farewell Christmas Tour
December 2010

The Pogues announce second Olympia Theatre date for their Farewell Christmas Tour

Due to phenomenal demand, The Pogues have added a second date at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on 09 December.

The Farewell Christmas Tour 2010 will now take in the following dates:
08, 09 December The Olympia Theatre, Dublin
11 December INEC Killarney

Tickets for all shows are available now from Ticketmaster and usual outlets nationwide.

Formed in 1982, The Pogues scored a string of hit albums combining traditional Irish folk with a punk sprit, embodied by their notorious frontman Shane MacGowan. MacGowan quit the group in 1991 and while the rest of the group carried on briefly, (with ex-Clash man Joe Strummer occasionally providing vocals) they eventually disbanded in 1995. They reunited with MacGowan in 2001 for a UK tour and headlined the London Fleadh the following year. Following this success the band embarked on regular worldwide tours selling out venues from Dublin to New York to great critical acclaim.

Every Pogues concert is a spectacular event. Only a Pogues gig can create the party atmosphere of St. Patrick’s Day in December with their unique mix of traditional Irish folk, punk and classic songwriting.

Don’t miss your chance to catch The Pogues live in Dublin and Killarney for what are going to be the best Christmas parties around this December!
