The Rapparees return to Tyneside bringing their festive homage to the Pogues on 15th December 2022.
The show sees the Belfast 5 piece expand to a 12 piece with a full brass section many 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.
Being on tour as support to Shane MacGowan & the Popes, The Rapparees galvanised their appreciation and understanding of their musical heroes, already evident in the fact the band are named from a lyric in Terry Woods’ ‘Young Ned of the Hill’.
The set is woven exactly as expected, between the madness and genius of Shane’s song writing, Spider’s driving whistle/beer tray and the meandering melodies of James Fearnley on accordion.
Expect to hear all the 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.
