Re: 2021-09-11, Roundhouse, London UK

Just a heads-up that the Saturday gig seems close to sell out - only 7 seats left now in the seated area, as compared to more than 50 on the Friday gig and around 80 something for the Sunday gig. Not that I think many here want to sit, but standing tickets are not numbered...so far, who knows what r...

Re: 2021-09-12, Roundhouse, London UK

Presumably neither Von nor the gig industry has enough money to ensure their business continues regardless, unlike for eg the Premier League or UEFA Yes, I was especially thinking of the EURO games, full or almost full stadiums which despite testing requirements have shown to be spreader events. An...

Re: 2021-09-12, Roundhouse, London UK

Growing increasingly sceptical now if this triple date is going to happen in September :? Of course I bought the tickets well knowing that the gigs could be postponed, but the last weeks have made me think there's no way they will be going ahead already now - or do any of you see a chance? When I ch...

Re: Sad news about a forum member :(

This is horrible news to read, really sad and shocking. He was quite active in the tours forum which is what I read most frequently on here, and he came across as a very nice guy I would have loved to meet and say hi to at a coming gig. Showed great humour and self-distance and a positive vibe in ge...

Well, there are more people with insight than :von: himself, Guru Nige Lites on Dominion for example:

I still think it's too soon. I still think it won't happen. But tickets bought.
Absolutely. But I assume if (when..) they are moved to for example February next year, they would still be on a weekend and still valid.

Re: NEW NEW SONG (On the Beach)

Probably no coincidence new songs are appearing now, as a tour was scheduled so the time was/is set aside for Sisters stuff. Hoping for something marked 2021 to turn up soon, would be an even better sign.

Updated with new 2022 date 2022 I see, but not 04-01? Only April 1st in the original poster. I don't think a new date is set yet, or have I missed something?

Good find, kafka!

Ever the annoying Sisters optimist, I consider this very good news meaning useful things are being done while the pandemic rages on. The longer lyrics are most welcome compared to But Genevieve.

Re: Live Stream

I think he lives in Antwerp according to info here, Dylan in Utrecht and they have rehearsed in Trix close to both. So I guess the relative productivity we've seen in the last years is to some extent because it has been so easy for them to come together in a studio. How things are during this pandem...

To be honest I think you are totally right :) And I think I have read interviews or other info suggesting something like that (writing, translating?)...but one can hope.

Re: But Genevieve

Yeah, my fault being unclear, I really wanted to compare merch sales with releasing product as an alternative to touring - that they earn the most from playing live is a fact I guess - but is it not possible at all to live from releases anymore? Not even for a fairly well-known midsize band like the...

Re: But Genevieve

We're far more likely to see more t-shirts and other merchandise as this is a far greater source of income nowadays for most bands. I don't doubt they sell a few shirts now and then even when they're not touring, but I really doubt they could live off merch sales unless they expand and promote thei...

Re: But Genevieve

I generally agree totally with what Todashi is saying, but I'm slightly more optimistic - Von will be forced to rethink his Sisters strategy and needs to find a(nother) reliable source of income. We all know it's increasingly unlikely even the March 2021 tour will take place, and in fact the live mu...

Re: Sisters 2020

Is an online gig, like our friends from BD3 are doing in October, now the most likely option for the similar 'birthday' event in February? I don't see how a Sisters gig could work online or be enjoyable without being there in the smoke and lights and really a much better sound experience as well. I...

As long as it doesn't require wearing a face mask at the gig I'm still in.. I'm beginning to wonder how long the Sisters can hold out without any income except the odd merchandise sales. AE has said in several interviews that they don't have to release anything as long as people are still going to t...

I'm almost certain, but only almost, that Von wrote "miserable old git" or "sad old git" or something like that about him in one of the UTR fan correspondences, must have been #13, 14, or 15 since I didn't start subscribing until towards the end. The most fascinating thing about this is not his opin...
