Hi,

The Pogues in France.... What a long time... The show was amazing. Shane was very fine. All the members seemed to have fun.
Shane played with microphone and we could see him dancing.

They played a traditional show but it was shorter than usual. Here is the songs they played.. sorry if the order is not good and if I forgot some :
Streams of whiskey, if I should fall from grace with, The broad majestic shannon, Turkish song of a damned, a pair of brown eyes, tuesday morning, the sunnyside of the street, the body of an american, kitty, Repeal of the licensing laws, Boys from the county hell, The sick bed of cuchulainn, Star of the county down, Sally McLennane, Fiesta..
I am not sure but I think they played also a rainy night in soho.
On if I should fall... shane screamed instead of singing and lots of errors on sally mclennane

I was there, it was my first Pogues concert (i'm from brittany), I was on the first rank just in front of Spider, suffocating between the wild crowd and the barrier ... It was so great, of course too short :mrgreen: , i could have staid listening and singing one hour more !!! Thank you to all the members, I lived a wonderful moment, you're so great... Please come back soon to France !!
PS : Mr Stacy, you threw your beer tray too far :cry: :cry:

I'm just back home from France and I agree with the guests. It was fantastic! The band really seemed to enjoy themselves.
It was great to see Philip back on stage. I would have loved to hear him sing Thousands are Sailing. Maybe next time...

Glad you enjoyed the show Philip :D
Did Shane really wore blue jeans? It looks like it on the Youtube clips.

And another great thing about the festival: in the afternoon there was a massive French 80's Top of the Pops alike playback show. I think they pulled all the French one hit wonders of the 80's out of the gutter and put them back on stage! Really funny. :lol:
Oh yes, and the Sex Pistols played there too.

It had some negative points too: it was sponsored by Heineken! :evil:

Yes, he's extra alluring in jeans. The next time I see him in them I will say so... loudly.
