On each and every page there's a Sisters gig listed for the Loreley Festival on 9th September 1984.

But there was no Loreley Festival at that date. If at all, that festival took place on 25th August.

Anybody know anything to clarify?

Interesting. Yes, a web search suggests Loreley festival 1984 was on 25 Aug.
I hoped there'd be a site that gave the history of the Loreley Festivals with dates and lineups, but didn't find anything.
This lists 5 bands that were there in '84: http://www.rockpalastarchiv.de/l3_e.html

My thoughts are:
1. Are bands allowed to play at the Loreley amphitheatre at other times of year?
2. Surely someone has a press cutting mentioning the gig?
3. Maybe they never played at Loreley in 1984.
4. It's largely irrelevant as there's no tape of it.

Oh thank you very much, taylor ... :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: ... due to this I've now even been able to detect it along idiot google ... :lol: ...

There were in fact two festivals at the Loreley in 1984: WDR Rockpalast headlined by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Golden Summernight as shown in your picture* ...

* looks much better now in the Wiki... :D ...


Thanks to Dan as well ... :) ... anyway, those Rockpalast Festival became ever worse over the years ... :lol: ...

I agree. Rory Gallagher would be great to see. One of the best guitarists in the world.
