Fans of the Pogues are in for a treat when Pogueology (A Tribute to The Pogues) play a special St Patrick's Weekend show at The Academy Green Room, Dublin on Friday 15th March.
The band made national headlines at last year’s Electric Picnic when they literally brought the house down at Jimmy Lees Juke Joint on the Friday of the festival. An overly-enthusiastic crowd made the band cut their set short when the floor collapsed in the venue.
The band played a guest slot on the Salty Dog on the Sunday night which was so well received that they were asked back this year to bring the party to a close on the Salty Dog stage.
The band have got the official thumbs up from Pogues frontman Shane McGowan who went to see the band on a number of occasions.
The nine-piece band came together in 2015 with a view to recreating the energy, mayhem and sheer party atmosphere of A Pogues live gig.
All the Pogues favourites are covered in the set including Streams of Whiskey, Sally McLennane, Fiesta, A Pair of Brown Eyes and Rainy Night in Soho. Tickets on sale Friday 1st February at 10am from Ticketmaster.
