3 nights on the trot before a Eurotour. That's ambitious and terrifying. Not gig fit at all!

So looking forward to this already - the Sisters were the last band I saw before lockdown, Bristol March 2020, so would be great to catch them on the other side. Saturday night for me, availability permitting.

Definitely surprised that they're adding extra gigs in September when it's impossible to know if anything will be able to go ahead by then. At the same time optimistic that ol' Eldritch still wants to keep booking 'em in.

Must admit I'm nervous about going if (and it's a big if in my view) they go ahead. Not even sure we'll all be vaccinated properly by then. :(

I'm not entirely convinced Covid will allow them to happen... but I'll be trying to get tickets anyway :von:

Right, negotiations with the wife completed. Gonna get tickets for the Sunday - if we're vaccinated and can travel from Ireland then, we'll go. If not, the tickets aren't so pricey that it'll hurt too much to miss it.

(Noticed earlier that someone much from the band must have been in touch this morning. The copy on the Roundhouse page has been finessed and the crucial THE has appeared in front of the band's name. 40 years later, they still have to remind people. I wonder does that happen to The Cure and The Who?)

Must admit to being uneasy about this one. My gut says "too soon".

I think it may go ahead - I work with a small local venue who are gearing up for getting things going again. Not sure exactly how I feel about it. I said to my other half a couple of months back that I'm not sure we'll ever do gigs again like we used to. But it's something to look forward to, even if it doesn't happen.

On the positive side, I took my 12 and 14 year old kids to the Bristol show last year - their first indoor gig. Had planned on leaving them with my parents this time, so my wife and I could enjoy some time on our own, but the kids aren't having it - they enjoyed the last one so much that they insist on coming. The next generation of fans...

Figure I'll get me tickets then if it's cancelled or moved to later in the year at least I'll have tickets. If it's not and things are much better in the world and I'm vaccinated I'll be there or will at least be able to have spare tickets if I'm not vaccinated in time. Normally I would book flights, hotels etc early to save money but there's no point in doing that.

Three nights, as well! The two at Roundhouse 2019 were pretty comprehensive. Slew of new songs?

But yes as canny people say, let's wait and see if it's a go-ahead.

Word.

I think there's a good chance that there'll be a load of new songs on these three nights. Very cool.

Unexpected but yes please :)

Can't remember the last time they did 3 back to back nights in the same venue - Hamburg in 90?

Do European citizens need visa and passports to visit GB at this moment? :roll: :notworthy:
