That is not to knock any of the band who did their best in the circumstances but from a decent start with 'Streams of Whiskey' the show (in my opinion) deteriorated.
Having read this last weeks reviews of how 'on form' Shane has been, this was not the case last night. Dont get me wrong we expect the expected with Shane but to forget the lyrics to half of the songs! I would imagine everyone in the UK knows the words to 'Fairytale'..Shane??
It was good to see some of the old classics like 'Poor Paddy' 'Kitty' etc getting an airing but the concert somehow reminded me of the 'dark' days around about Hells Ditch when the group and Shane parted company. The band then had to put their foot down, and for the life of me I hope they are still going for the next 25 years, but it didnt seem a happy set up to me.
Long live The Pogues & Shane, lets hope last night was a one off!

And where were the Christmas trees? Bring them back...
