I’m about 90% up for an Australian adventure this tour. (I’m avoiding Europe right now.) If I can convince scardwell to meet me there, it’s on! 😉

Do it! I thought the travel would be brutal, but there are reasonable non-stops offered. So much for my idea of stopping in South America for a shamanic ayahuasca thing... There must be some aboriginal ceremony we can ignorantly gentrify?

Flights were not as expensive as I thought. Internal flights in Oz are dirt cheap. Need to check about holidays at work but yes I am interested if others are going.

I guess it will be nearly lunchtime or breakfast for the lazy ones in Europe when it’s showtime later. Oh and it’s nearly 30 degrees here so it could be a hot and sweaty one. Will try to report it I can later.

I'll probably be sleeping when the show starts ... :lol: ... so enjoy everybody over there ... ;D ;D ;D ... with loads of joy, fun and pleasure included, of course ... :lol: ;D ...

The weather here is ... sunny, but rather cold. I like that sort of fresh air, though... :) ...

The Sisters of Mercy have tonight restored my faith in The Sisters of Mercy. That is to say the show was a damn sight better than the Soundwave shemozzle experienced in Briswegia some years ago. No hi-viz to be seen! #andreweldritch #grumpyyorkshirebastard 😂

There wasn't too much use of the smoke machine at the Sisters of Mercy gig. Not!

The Sisters of Mercy performed on Melbourne tonight. You could hear them this time! But you couldn't see Andrew Eldritch. You can never see Andrew Eldritch; like the images in Plato's cave, you can only see the shadow.
