Pogues announce farewell Christmas tour

By | Published on Wednesday 1 September 2010

Talking of Christmas, which we were, The Pogues have announced details of a ‘farewell Christmas tour’. I don’t know whether this is the band saying farewell, or whether Christmas is being banned after 2010. I’ve not really paying attention to the news for a few weeks now so the latter may well be true, given all those ConDem cuts that have been going on.

Anyway, here’s where Shane MacGowan and friends will be playing this December:

13 Dec: Glasgow, Academy
14 Dec: Newcastle, Academy
16 Dec: Sheffield, Academy
17 Dec: Manchester, Apollo
18 Dec: Birmingham, Academy
20 Dec: London, Brixton Academy
21 Dec: London, Brixton Academy
