vocals of shamanic singer Shane MacGowan.

The Pogues Biography - A True Punk Fairytale
Frontman MacGowan and tin whistle player Peter 'Spider' Stacy met
in 1977 at a Ramones gig in London, eventually forming their own band under the name Pogue Mahone. After getting their big
break opening for The Clash in 1984, they released their debut album Red Roses for Me, before hitting the Top 20 with
ground-breaking follow-up Rum Sodomy and the Lash the following year. In 2003, Rolling Stone placed the album
in their 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. The band is perhaps best known for their bittersweet ballad 'Fairytale
of New York', featuring vocals from the late Kirsty MacColl. Since hitting Number 2 in the charts in 1987, this multi-million
seller has been declared Britain's favourite festive anthem, re-entering the charts every Christmas since 2005.
no signs of slowing down over 30 years after their formation, these legendary rock hellraisers are due to hit the stage again
in 2013. Don't miss out - buy The Pogues tickets on StubHub UK and get in on the action.
