Any chance of a live stream from any of The Sisters' gigs?
Any guesses.... :roll:

Me neither, so thank for the hint. Just updating the SistersWiki as well ... :D ...

Interestingly, the Curitiba gig is still NOT listed ... so a slight uncertainty about that one remains ... :wink:

Good to know. It'ss probably only an oversight, that it's not mentioned on the Live News page, yet.


Btw, this looks like one of the best concert photos from the festivals so far ... :D

So the summer festivals have finished. Three weeks until Part Two starts. No real surprises in the setlist but then that was not unexpected as the length of sets varied so much. Now we head indoors for twelve weeks or so, from Greece to Mexico and many points in between.

Guess we all have our favourites, our wishes, and our dreams. Here are some of mine.

New intro music – Colours (instrumental) just 1 – 2 mins. Also thought about the Requiem intro from Royal Albert Hall in 1985.

New opening track – always wanted to see Dominion and Vision Thing but in the absence of those Crash and Burn would be my choice.

Ben has been teasing # on his instagram posts this summer and one stood out as I had already been thinking about Nine While Nine for a while. Of the reworked FALAA tracks Walk Away comes across far better than No Time To Cry, Marian is good but my fav is Rock And A Hard Place. Possession was touted on the last tour but never saw the light of day that I remember. Would love to see Some Kind of Stranger but without Comfortably Numb it is hard to envisage this working…maybe one day they will work it out.

I hope we can see the setlist swapped about as getting Ribbons 2nd, and then Temple, Lucretia as encores is getting boring. Far Parade and any other new track would always be welcome. And please, please, please, drop Detonation Boulevard altogether (long past its sell by date.) Perhaps AE should hit the shuffle button every night and see what comes out!

At the end of it all we will get what we get as I suppose only one man picks the setlist at the end of the day.

So looking forward to the tour now – London, London, Brussels, Brussels, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland.

P.S. Do we have a tour name yet?

Setlist-wise i'm a biit gutted that Summers missing as it is genuinely one of my all time favourites.

However: i'd love to see Heartland return also Gimme Shelter. Train -on its own not part of a medley- would make me smile and Kiss The Carpet (full intro) starts my perfect gig every time... although Vision Thing never fails to get the night going in the right mood. nor wouild FALAA so long as they use Marx's riff & not Adam's abortion.

No Time To Cry should never leave the set again as its eternally uplifting but Possession & A Rock And A Hard Place would be most welcome too....and theve not played Valentine for f**king ages.
as i'm seeing them twice at the same venue the traditional varying sets could easily accommodate this.

and yo! Andrew! the offers still there -in perpetuity- for a real bassist (just cover my drugs and food) so Lucretia played as Dog intended would ensure happiness and jubilation across the cosmos.

I second that, kiss the carpet it's the absolute gig starter IMHO.

Indeed we haven't heard the girls playing valentine in a while now, but you now what's even more rare? Burn and Floorshow, and I absolutely love the current rendition of these.

So... because I'm mental, I just bought tickets to fly home for the two London gigs (from the U.S.). But the gigs are sold out. Anyone have any pointers toward where I might be able to find a ticket (or two, since I might bring a friend along) for the two nights at the Roundhouse?

Last time round I thought Walk Away was a real highlight, sends to have disappeared again.

Bring it back please.

Some name shoudl be chosen. Heaven knows, though, whether these shirts will be there during all of the tour. So far, there have been different ones in all countries during the festival tour and in Greece ... so I wonder what's going to come in Brussels?

There was a big pile of these (fid.. National Treasure) shirts, although no venue specific ones and I was told there won't be any more of those.

No tour tees, or no more Fid Def once they're gone?
