Incoming: The Pogues @ Midland

Posted by on Tue, Jun 23, 2009 at 9:37 AM

I couldn't have come back from a four-day, computer-free weekend to better news: the Pogues are coming to the Midland by AMC on October 25.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 26, at 10 a.m. But a pre-sale is available today beginning at 3 p.m. to anyone who signs up for the Pogues' online community.

In recent years, it seems like the storied Irish trad-rock-punk band has only played in New York (and maybe one or two other select cities) when they've bothered to come to the U.S. Evidently, KC's got some good Irish karma because the band will be coming to here (and nowhere else in the midwest!) with its complete original lineup, including, of course, gnarly-toothed poet and philosopher Shane McGowan

Video & more info after the jump.

Here's a YT I just discovered of MacGowan singing a duet with Nick Cave. The song: "What A Wonderful World." Of course.
