Favourite sisters live vids

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.

There are so many from all the shows over the past few years, I really couldn't tell ...

Those from the current tour are definitely among my favourites, though... ;D ...

I think we should start a petition to play Fix on the next tour 🙃

My vote goes to Brixton 1983 ,
The band were evolving and in the midst of a series of cracking EP releases 🖤

Show me on the doll, from the Near Meth Experience gig in Antwerp. This vid has had 12,000 views since Sept 16th - for a sisters video that's a lot of views in two months. I basically play this every day and I'd say there are others doing the same.

It's fantastic. The intimacy, the lights, the performance - the idea that this was the very first time it was performed is astounding to me. I even like being able to see Von wander to the back of the stage to check the lyrics on his iPad.

Ingo did everyone a favour when he recorded this.

Well, Show Me combines the rarity of being new product with being quite catchy too. Might explain the numbers regarding Sisterly things.

Must admit I'm playing it every day too. Not sure why but it didn't hit me like a brick on the first listen like Better Reptile did. It's hit me now.

Whichever one I'm watching at the time :bat:

although from a production values point of view Doc Summer's Live 2006 compilation takes some beating :notworthy:

and more recently, that Arms vid from the Roundhouse, may as well be an official promo 8) this one, in fact https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQyNYiBvza4

Tipsy Andrew botches Dominion, needs to see Ben to lip read lyrics and almost crashes into Dylan. Ben's face: priceless. Full disclosure: I think tipsy Andrew is where the fun begins.

That’s a belting version of Arms.

Where would I find Doc’s compilation? Sounds like a winner.

Incredible, thank you! Was well chuffed to find a pair of these discs - though I suspect they may be a lacking a little in the era of 4k..

There were 4 sets originally, 3 were weeded but the forth covering 92-93 is probably lost forever...

Glad to be able to help Stu. Aren't these compilations yours? I don't have the actual discs anymore but the cover was lurking in and amongst a disc full of such things, I think Rise & Reverberate compiled the artwork disc, maybe? Pretty sure I've still got the Tour Thing discs.

Right, lets see if I can remember how to copy and burn dvds so Dom Conway can bask in the glory of the Live 2006 end-credits sequence 8)
