I've seen the Sisters live, but I haven't seen them in Leeds before. Does anyone recommend anywhere significant to the Sisters that I could visit while in Leeds? Thank you.

PILGRIMAGE!

Well, outside my best friends halls is a rather large headstone/monument that the band posed on for group photo (Wayne, Marx, Adams, Eldo era). Adds to the likelyhood that maybe one or more of them was living in those halls :wink:

One might add The Phono to the list of potential holy sites: Nightclub and hangout of the girls - sadly it no longer exists. DJ Phono Paul has taken the spirit of La Phonographique with him to The Subculture, which still runs the Sheepish nights which, IIRC originated in the Phono.

The site of greatest Sisters significance? Wherever the Heartland meetup is! ;D

Heh I know where you mean, St George's Field behind the Henry Kelly -- erm I mean Henry Price -- building.

Well renowned for its crop of psilocybin mushrooms... :innocent:

We had a thread of "significant Sisters places in Leeds" a while back didn't we?

Think that "significant Leeds places" thingy was something to do with Francis wasn't it around the Smoke & Mirrors tour? Can't remember exactly.

Not got my tickets yet anyway, just rang the venue to make sure they still had plenty & "We've still actually got quite a lot of tickets for sale" was the answer. :lol:

Might even buy on the door!

Well I've grabbed a pair of tix ... first one since Smoke and Mirrors. Be intrigued to see what they've done with the T&C as well...

Not sure who's getting the second ticket mind :-$

it will be in the club space underneath the concert hall, will start when the gig ends (approx 11pm) and run until 2am

it will be free entry for all you happy little gig go-ers

Hi, I'm coming all the way from New Zealand for both the UK dates. Never seen them live as they've never been down my neck of the woods but fulfilling a 25 year dream. Will see you all there I guess not to mention the before and after parties.

Cheers,

Marty
