The Rapparees: ‘A Fairytale of The Pogues'

The Academy Green Room, Dublin
Friday 2nd December 2022

Tickets €22.90 Incl. booking fee
Doors 7pm | Over 18's | ID Required

The Rapparees return to Dublin bringing their festive homage to the Pogues @ The Green, Academy on Friday DEC 2nd 2022.  


The show sees the Belfast 5 piece expand to a 12 piece with the 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 early on in the life of 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.
