Tickets are on pre-sale for some shows by The Pogues (regular sale starts Thursday). Now an annual tradition, the Irish (and English) band will be in NYC for St. Patrick's day, although currently they're only scheduled to play two shows at Roseland Ballroom on the two days before March 17th. It is very possible of course that they'll end up adding a third show on the actual day (if not more than that). That would still leave them plenty of time to make it to their next show in Boston which is on March 19th.
Unfortunately, these shows will probably be without guitarist Philip Chevron, who - sadly, is on hiatus to fight throat cancer right now. All dates below....
