Live Stream

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

there's no good reason for them to do anything 3 weeks after the event. all previous birthday celebrations have started on the day, cant imagine a locked-down Trix being so busy that the Sisters' war-chest couldnt get any Belgian amateurs out of the way at short notice. :roll:

The telling thing will be if anything does happen on the anniversary. It is clearly a date that has meant something to someone over the years.

I was talking with the former Ms Swinnow, who attended the 1991 and 2001 dates, and she semi-jokingly suggested the band use this year's date to announce a new vocalist.

I think this was a rescheduled date from March 2020 tour then moved to September, then moved to March 2021, then to September 2021. Only some reason Antwerp is not on the September tour. Maybe?

The event claims to be three hours long. Can anyone else remember the last time Eldritch did a three-hour performance? Well then.

is it supposed to be a support band?

because it could be part of an in-joke by whoever created the event

trix = tricks = "THIS IS A TRICK, YOU IDIOTS!"

Ah, Trix is a music venue in Antwerp where they were supposed to play, then cancelled & rescheduled.

EDIT: Aha, this is the event page...
https://www.trixonline.be/en/program/th ... ercy/2474/
With a link to a facebook event (different link to the one posted earlier), but that event doesn't mention streaming...
https://www.facebook.com/events/992537581106018

So either they've set up that other page to advertise a stream, or more likely it's fake.

Would the band be travelling to Belgium just to do a live stream in an empty hall? (assuming there's still a lockdown)

EDIT2: I sent a message to Trix on facebook asking them if the event is real or fake. Let's see if I get a reply.

TRIX is type of Kodak film. Film = video= streaming.
TRIX =X is 10, TRI is Welsh for three = 3x 10= 30 years (damnit almost :lol: )

A nagging voice in my head tells me the Dusty Bin model was made in west Leeds, in Rodley, down by the canal. Knowledge is the bomb, no matter how useless.

Now lets all go back to dreaming/talking about the reissue of Gift and a release of But Genevieve.

I just went to their page and used the search function and didn't find it. They only posted the genuine event announcement (which doesn't mention streaming).
