The Pogues to perform classic album 'Rum, Sodomy & the Lash'
The Pogues are set to play their classic 1985 album 'Rum, Sodomy & the Lash' at four separate shows in the UK this December.

The band will visit Manchester O2 Apollo on December 15, before gigs at Glasgow O2 Academy (December 17) and two shows at London's O2 Academy Brixton on December 19 and 20. Tickets go on sale at 9.30am [BST] on September 27. As well as playing their second album in full, they will also perform other "favourite tracks".

Earlier this year it was reported that The Pogues' Shane MacGowan was searching for a dentist who could fix his infamously bad teeth so he might start a Hollywood film career. MacGowan's hedonistic lifestyle caused his teeth to rot and fall out and, although he had dentures fitted in 2009, he no longer wears them. His girlfriend Victoria Mary Clarke launched an appeal on Twitter for a dentist to fix his gnashers and also promised that the frontman would front an advertising campaign in exchange for the work.

"Shane is keen to find a dentist, so he can start in Hollywood film," she wrote. "Pogues/Shane fans who are great dentists please apply!" She later added: "Shane promises to do advertising campaign for the winning dentist!!!"

The Pogues released the live album and DVD 'Pogues In Paris: 30th Anniversary Concert At The Olympia', which features two shows in the French capital, in November 2012. Their last studio album, 'Pogue Mahone', was released in 1996.
