KB in Malmö is very small (750 officially), but the other 2 are small compared to which venues?
I think they are of pretty average Sisters-size. Gothenburg for example 1700+.

AFAIK the Zénith in Paris is by far the biggest venue they play this year (about 6.000). Still far from sold out as you can guess.

Gor Paris, just got the info than more than 3/4 of the tickets are sold, it means more than 4500 people :)
Looks like going to be the biggest show of the tour.

I thought the Sisters never sold out.
And you know that she's half crazy but that's why you want to be there.

Previously, it's always been two nights in succession. One night now. Sold out. :|

I'll wave goodbye to all my fellow HLers I was hoping to meet. :(
