Wonderful ... ;D ;D ;D ... :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: ...

To see them play at a club could be even better than at a large festival like Soundwave ...

Look here for the announcement at Corner Hotel's website ... ;D ...

Yep, no surprises there. I have saying for years there is a massive untapped wealth of Sisters fans Down here... Maybe now we will be spoiled with more tours.
And for the record, we are all merch mad, so the takings will indeed be worth the trip. :lol:

Indeed there is. I'm amazed they've not toured Oz before. Surprised they're not doing sideshows in other capitals. Perhaps there'll be some specific Antipodean merch to make amends.

Yeah the New Order clash was a little bit of an issue... also had to sell the Bris Vegas tix, but I was not soo keen on that one. It will be beastly hot in Brizzie and the festival does not appeal, so this is the ideal solution. Can't wait!

This makes a pleasant change from the usual online petitions to get :von: to release a new album and probably has more chance of success :

Thank you splintered thing!

Nice setlist!
Great to see Dr Jeep back to the setlist in those last gigs i just love it!(but still prefer Train :innocent:).
I miss Kiss the Carpet, A Rock and a Hard Place, Rain From Heaven and other surprises that we had in 2011, but i can deal with it.
Anyway, if they keep this setlist 'til march, this will be my best sisters show.

Cheers!
