I fully enjoyed the show, and to the people who were let down by Shane, I must say, what did you expect? Did you not see the documentary, "If I Should Fall From Grace With God"? Of course he was going to come out in a total-fucking-wreck-state. Did you stay for the end of the show? He came back out and actually killed it on "Sick Bed of cuchulainn", "Fiesta", and if I remember correctly, "Body of an American". He still was slurring every word, but he was understandable and everyone was singing along, and isn't that the point? Everyone in the crowd was jumping and singing and having fun. That is the point of a Pogues show in this day and age. And don't forget "Thousands are Sailing" Which was sung by Phillip Chevron who wrote the song and is currently suffering through cancer treatment. And he did an excellent job of singing his own beautiful song even though he will probably die soon.
