The Sisters On This Day

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

I had to do a double take & nearly tweeted it before I noticed.
Still plenty of other really great images in the wiki to use in tweets. Top marks to all the contributors :notworthy:
I'd urge anyone with old ticket stubs & wotnot to have a look through the wiki & try to fill any gaps.
Cheers.

9th April, and just one show, at the Forum in London: https://sisterswiki.org/Thu,_09-Apr-2009.

I went to this one, pretty good as I remember it, boosted by Goldblade being the support act.

It wasn't as bad as the Astoria 2006 gig but still pre-Leamington Spa and forgiveness..

Don’t know, but this is my 500th post, and I’d never have got to this point without my semi regular posts in this thread, so hopefully not for a few more weeks.

Just the two on 20th April:

Manchester Hacienda, 1983 https://sisterswiki.org/Wed,_20-Apr-1983

Wolverhampton Civic Hall, 2003 https://sisterswiki.org/Sun,_20-Apr-2003

Twenty years apart to the day, yet the Wolves gig was still 16 years ago. Is there another band with this kind of longevity that simply doesn't release records ... I can't think of one.

[quote="Being645"]Another four gigs on April 23rd


1985 - Alabamahalle, Munich, West Germany

Hello Sabine, thanks, but I think for Munich´85 the right date should be the 24th of April.
