The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan has learned firsthand the perils of dancing. The rambunctious frontman was rushed to the hospital this week after breaking his pelvis while attempting a “complicated dance move.”
MacGowan’s partner Virginia Mary Clarke shared news of the injury on Twitter, but assured fans that the 57-year-old singer singer will be fine.
Just to say thanks to everyone who sent messages to #shanemacgowan he is grateful! Cranky, but recovering! Fell and broke his pelvis.

The Pogues have no upcoming tour dates scheduled, so there’s no for MacGowan to rush his recovery. Below, watch the band’s video for “Fairytale of New York”.
