A POGUES tribute band is set to play at the Creative Innovation Centre in Taunton this weekend.

The performance from the group, known as The P'Hogues, follows the tragic death of Shane MacGowan, frontman of the celebrated Irish punk band, who passed away at the age of 65 on November 30.

MacGowan's wife, Victoria Mary Clarke, shared touching sentiments about her husband on Instagram stating he "meant the world to me."

She continued by writing: "Shane has gone to be with Jesus and Mary and his beautiful mother Therese.

"He will always be the light that I hold before me and the measure of my dreams and the love of my life and the most beautiful soul and beautiful angel and the sun and the moon and the start and end of everything that I hold dear."

MacGowan and The Pogues entertained fans with a fusion of traditional Irish tunes and rock'n’roll while touring across the world in a 25-year career.

Today, the spirit of The Pogues is kept alive through The P'Hogues tribute band.

Formed in 2019, The P'Hogues replicate the band's iconic sound.

Captivating audiences with popular tracks, the band's setlist includes 'Streams of Whiskey', 'Irish Rover', 'Sally McLennane' and 'Fairytale of New York'.

Fans can anticipate great tributes this Saturday at their performance in Taunton.

Tickets - which are priced £12.80 per person, including the booking fee - can be purchased through the Creative Innovation Centre's website.
