Yesterday was a missed opportunity, the Sisters have played many gigs on the 29th June.

As for today, the Sisters played in Kingston (South West London, not Jamaica) - https://sisterswiki.org/Thu,_30-Jun-1983, and then this date remained a gig free zone until 2006, when they played the Festival of Metal (https://sisterswiki.org/Fri,_30-Jun-2006), in Helsinki. So maybe this belongs in the Heartland Metal thread?!

Wasn't there an interview with AE from Kingston Poly?

And of course, Helsinki ... The Sisters on stage in full sunshine ... must have been a wonderful gig ...

Aye, it's the one when he asks the interviewer if he knows his cousin who is a student there.

Hihi, yes. Right at the end.

My guess is he helped the Sisters 'rawk' out to try and batter America. The lure of haddock and scraps proved too strong thankfully

July 10th, a day of many Sisters gigs starting with

- the Zig Zag Club, London in the early days when The Sisters were yet touring the UK and had at least reached the capital.
... a lovely and well informing read about this event can be found here ...

- 1993, Leysin Rock, Switzerland - the first concert with Adam Pearson ...

- and finally so far, Rockwave Festival, Athens, Greece in 1997
... The Sisters headlined Day Two after NMA, who performed just before them.

Thanks for keeping up with this, I've been away for a few days - home again now and you can probably guess what I'll be sticking to listen to tonight.

Just like the wonderful "Utterly B Groovy" tee shirt of yore. More black on black needed, as well as a reprint of these shirts.

Mosquitoes, drinking, boisterous crowd.
Adam running around filming in the crowd after the show.
Bit of filmed performance on breakfast tv the next day.

I have a gig poster somewhere, kindly donated by a local recordshop.
