Possible tour early 2020?!

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.

Some of you may have seen this, (i know there's a lot of overlap between groups!) but for those that haven't, someone posted on Facebook -

"European gigs planned early next year"

When asked for more details, they just put:

"March I think and all that was said was ‘Europe’"

Could be something, could be nothing, just throwing it out there! :D

Looking at the gigography, that would at least be nothing unusual ...

Well, if it´s true they should be announced very soon then. Ben are quite busy second half of februari with Nathan Gray, and most likely with PIG the first half. So definitely nothing before march.

They made themselves available for the summer 2020 in Europe earlier this autumn, that's all I've heard. But the Sisters without a slew of summer festival dates in Europe are almost unheard of, so I didn't find it worth mentioning, especially since there were no specific dates.

Similar to what Being writes, it would be much more surprising if they did NOT have anything planned for next year.

Let's hope "March in Europe" isn't a sign that they have once again tried and failed to set up a North American tour, which of course would have been the logical step now.

I originally thought that maybe next year would actually be a bit quieter and then they might do a big tour including North America in 2021 for the 40th anniversary? Who knows!

“Early next year� could be pre-spring. I’m still cold from the last Liverpool show.

Greece. Italy. Warm places.

Well, Southern-Germany. Still hoping for Bremen, Hannover or Oldenburg

A nice surprise, if northern Germany is being hoped for can I add PLYC too.

Get ready for the inevitable willy waving though regarding the two simultaneous tours from the sad acts in both camps.
