The Pogues Tickets
The Pogues are a popular Irish folk rock band of the 1980s
and 1990s. They have a strong following, essentially inventing Celtic
Punk and having a large influence on the larger Celtic Fusion scene
as well. The Pogues were founded in King's Cross, a district
in north London, in 1982 as Pogue Mahone - "pogue mahone" being the
Anglicisation of the Irish pog mo thoin, meaning "kiss my arse".

The Pogues' politically-tinged music was reminiscent of The Clash, with whom they played, and used traditional Irish instruments such as the tin whistle, banjo, cittern, mandolin, accordion and more. In the later incarnations of the band, rock instruments such as the electric guitar would become more prominent.
In March 2006, The Pogues played a series of sold-out concerts in Washington D.C., Atlantic City, Boston and New York. The band have made no secret about the fact they've all been writing new music and a new album followed by more touring is expected. The Pogues were awarded the life time achievement award at the annual Meteor Ireland Music Awards in February 2006. On Easter Sunday 2006, "Fairytale of New York" was Voted the 24th Greatest Lyric of all time by VH1.
