People who have seen Pogues performance on Harbourside in June, may not just have just seen a magnificent performance, but they have seen a piece of history. Reportedly they have seen the Pogues’ penultimate performance on UK soil.
Since the gig, the band well known for their Christmas classic track Fairytale of New York have played once more and they are now all set to quit the whole music scene for another time following a performance in August at a French festival.
Before playing in a lineup including the Libertines band in Hyde Park previous week, Pogues’ lead singer Shane Macgowan declared that he was planning to end the group’s thirteen year long reunion. Speaking about the reunion, Shane Macgowan, before the London concert, told that he just meant to do one gig. He did not intend it to go on this long.
He added that this is the last year. He is fifty six now; therefore, he wanted to start working out, going to the gym a couple of hours every day. Anyway, this is the last gig.
The band reached its international prominence in 80s, the British group kicked out songwriter and singer Shane Macgowan in 1991. They parted ways in the year 1996 and they later reunited in the year 2001. Now, for thirteen years on, the band is all set to draw a curtain (for some time at least).
