The club is a wee bit small, too, for the Sisters ;D

Anyway, seems my patience is rewarded now! Off to Brussels!

Yeah! Very good news. Finally.
And very strange... I e-mailed the people of ClearChannel.be a few days ago and they told me that they had no news about future Sisters gigs. But who cares? Now it's official :D

Sorry to overbomb this thread, but it's the headliner in Studio Brussel's newsletter tonight :eek: :notworthy:
The Sisters Of mercy zijn terug. Op 22 april komen ze naar de AB in Brussel. De groep werkt ook aan een nieuwe plaat, dus misschien krijg je er al nieuwe nummers te horen.
(Translation: The Sisters Of mercy are back. April 22nd they'll come to the AB in Brussels. The band is also working on a new album ( :lol: ), so perhaps you'll get to hear some new songs there.)

They even use an up to date pic with a bald Von :eek:

just ordered my 2 tickets..hehe...
got to admit..AB is small..but saw em there 8 years ago..and it was amazing! (and it's only 5 minutes away from work (lol)

about that album stuff..i hope they're right... thought it was getting kinda weird.. this is their biggest tour ever!! so we can leave out the fact that he needs sigaret money :D
so either he wants to cash in 1 last time, or it's a part of a new record contract they signed...(or he needs the money to release a new album independantly :D

but f**k all that for now!! i'll be there front row!!

looking forward to meeting some of you...

The Sisters of Mercy zijn terug. De in Leeds, door Gary Marx en Andrew Eldritch, opgerichte groep wist een stempel te drukken op de jaren 80 dankzij culthits als 'Body and Soul', 'Temple of Love', 'Alice' en 'No Time To Cry'. Hun muziek weet meerdere hippe groepjes van dit moment te beïnvloeden. Ook slagen The Sisters of Mercy er nog steeds in hun publiek te vernieuwen. Hun sterke live sets bestaan uit de klassiekers, oudere onuitgegevens songs en nieuw werk. De groep klinkt nog steeds als een geöliede machine, helemaal aangepast aan het nieuwe millenium en daarmee geven ze meerdere bands uit de jaren 80 die opnieuw live spelen het nakijken.
if you want a translation, plz ask someone esle, since i'm too tired now.. :lol:

Ordered mine, too!

And indeed 35 Euro... as if I care ;D

Still better than U2 prices IMHO....

BTW for the Belgians: today there's even a whole page dedicated to the Sisters on EEN teletext! :eek: Page 810 or something...

Someone at the VRT is a Sisters fan I guess :)
