Fairytale of The Pogues – A Tribute by The Rapparees

Is it even Christmas without The Pogues? We don’t think so! When we heard The Rapparees were returning to Manchester, bringing their festive homage to the Pogues, we knew The Irish World Heritage Centre had to book them! You can experience the festive show here on Thursday the 22nd December 2022.

This is the perfect way to celebrate Christmas with loved ones, and tickets will make a great present for friends and family. So with that in mind, it’s best to book early to avoid disappointment.

What is Fairytale of The Pogues?

The show sees the Belfast 5-piece band expand to a 12-piece, with the full brass section many will remember from the raucous Pogues live shows from the late 80s & early 90s. Sold out shows in Belfast have seen the band take the show on the road to Germany, Switzerland & Luxembourg.

Early on in the life of the Rapparees, they were on tour as support to Shane MacGowan & the Popes. This galvanised their appreciation and understanding of their musical heroes. The more eagle-eyed music fan may have noticed that the band are named from a lyric in Terry Woods’ ‘Young Ned of the Hill’ – Did you spot it?

What to Expect From Fairytale of The Pogues – A Tribute by The Rapparees

Expect to hear all of The Pogues biggest hits – A Rainy Night in Soho, Streams of Whiskey, Sally Maclennane, If I should Fall from Grace with God, The Body of an American  and of course, the Fairytale itself.

The set is woven exactly as expected. Falling comfortably between the madness and genius of Shane’s song writing, Spider’s driving whistle/beer tray, and the meandering melodies of James Fearnley on the accordion.
