yeah, the pogues are still an amazing live act (wish i could say the same for the popes), but when i saw them in la a few months back, it was the worst crowd i had ever been. the band was more than good enough to make up for it.

Bump. Going to see them in NYC this weekend. And to think a year ago I couldn't even hum one of their songs.

i saw the pogues last week in chicago, the second of 2 nights, and they were awesome. shane could hardly walk but he sounded great and killed on all the songs, funny how guys like vince neil cant do it but shane sure can. it was well worth the very very very long time ive been waiting to see shane.

the crowd sucked until the last few songs but thats chicago for ya.

Yay! Less than 24 hours left. The show I saw them was, far and away, the best live show of any band I've ever seen. And the guy was in a wheelchair. I hope they can repeat themselves.

Audio is not very good during the louder parts, the video isn't complete. Sorry, limitations of my camera.

Re: Shane MacGowan of the Pogues

atlantamoi, they're playing in Atlanta this year. You going?

I just got face-value tickets for one of the NYC shows. One of my most anticipated days of the year.

I sure hope so! I'm very excited they are coming to Atlanta. My wife will be out of town with our kid so that actually will make it easier for me to go. I never buy tix through Ticketmaster and will just try and pick one up on Ebay or Craigslist a week beforehand. I really hope I can get in. If so, I'll be very stoked.

Morrissey is playing in a small theater three days before and I might try and squeeze into that gig as well.

I'm going to the Atlanta show at the Tabernacle in March. Glad I'm finally able to see them live.

Re: Shane MacGowan of the Pogues

The Bus, do you still have tickets for an NYC gig? I hear they cancelled Thursday night.
I just got back from the Atlanta show and it was a lot fun. Shane was unintelligible between songs. Funny. Just glad he's able to get up on stage. I realized that when I listen to Pogues albums I like the variety of Shane vs. Spider and the concert was almost all Shane. Would have enjoyed just a bit more variety, but I enjoyed it. Glad I caught them!

Re: Shane MacGowan of the Pogues

Looks like Thursday's show will be happening on Saturday. I guess Roseland will be twice as packed? Hard to imagine how exactly that will work since I assume both shows were sold out. Why didn't they sell close to capacity?

I'm seeing them Friday though. Can't wait.

Re: Shane MacGowan of the Pogues

Tickets were good. I'm 3 for 3 when buying Pogues tickets. I just think Pogues fans are, by their nature, not assholes.



Got there early this year (hour and a half after doors) and was able to stand about 4-5 people back from the stage, depending on how the pit was moving.
