Mike Campbell with Sharon and Marylin cover The Pogues' Dirty Old Town;

Rock icons Fleetwood Mac arrived in Ireland this week for their highly anticipated gig at the RDS arena.
The line up was missing Lyndsey Buckingham but the band consisting of Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie along with newcomers Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Mick Campbell and Crowded House's Neil Finn delivered a memorable gig that absolutely thrilled attendees.

In the lead up to the gig guitarist Campbell was seen buzzing around Dublin city and even posted a photo of himself on Nassau street outside Knobs and Knockers.

Following the epic gig in the RDS in Dublin he took to Instagram yet again to share he and the band's rendition of Dirty Old Town paying tribute to Shane McGowan and the Pogues.

He wrote.: "Bathroom Jam Volume 55 Coming to you from Dublin ..the knobs and knockers with special guest Jethro Beaudine on the fiddle… A tribute to Shane and the Pogues… It IS a dirty old knob town!" referencing both the Dublin shop and his band The Dirty Knobs.

The cover is absolutely gorgeous that offers a American country style twist on the classic Irish tune.
