Lovely ... ;D :lol: ... :notworthy: ...

"Lucretia My Reflection" is one of the most anticipated of the night and people are in complete ecstasy. Again they are removed and people scream "Sisters, Sisters". Acapulco ZZ triggers a new rhythmic sequence, inviting, it's "Rain From Heaven". Are linked with "Vision Thing" and closed with another masterly of the most anticipated, "Temple of Love", thus leaving the creatures of darkness, illuminated by the beauty of his music. Great concert.
Really a sweet and fine review ... ;D ... :notworthy: ...

The conclusion ? "Anyone who thinks goth music is slow and depressing has never heard The Sisters of Mercy"

According to this one, the Sisters are a duo ( :von: and Chris), and half way through Chris seems to turn nto Gary Marx. Journalists ...

Judging from this photo of the setlist, it would seem that "Summer" and not "Gift that Shines" was due to be played. the reviews (see previous posts in this thread) are also inconclusive. Anyone got the answer to this Mexican mystery ??

I checked the festival's website and I literally don't know any of the performers other than the Sisters of Mercy. I guess I'm ... old?

They played Summer ! and it was by far the laziest song of the entire set :/ it wasn't so energic as the rest of the songs they played
