Irish rockers The Pogues are to celebrate St Patrick's Day this week (beg14Mar11) with a "farewell" concert in New York.
The band, fronted by Shane Macgowan, announced last year (10) they plan to quit touring because they are tired of life on the road.
They played a handful of shows in the U.K. in December (10) and this week they will perform a three-night residency dubbed A Parting Shot at Manhattan's Terminal 5 venue - with the final gig taking place on Thursday (17Mar11), St Patrick's Day.
But it won't be the last chapter in the band's story - they have promised to occasionally dust off their instruments to play at "festivals here and there".
