More dates for Shane MacGowan and The Pogues

The Pogues singer Shane MacGowanThe Pogues have confirmed a second concert date at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Saturday 5th December. The band will now play two dates at the venue on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th December.

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.
