The Pogues, Phil Chevron just announced that despite previous facebook posting on the official Pogues facebook page, The Pogues will be staying home this coming St. Patrick’s day.
“I’ve just been informed we’ve been unable to find a suitable venue in London for St Patrick’s Day. We did actually have Hammersmith Apollo on hold but so too did another act and unfortunately they were quicker to the draw than we were and snapped it up just before we did. Sorry that I raised false hopes, I’m quite pissed off about it myself.
Just to circumvent the “why not the Dog and Sausages in Hackney?” questions, none of the alternative venues we pursued this week made sense either economically or in terms of crowd safety. ”
