I didn't get tix... Sad
I have waited more than 20 years to see the Sisters here, and now I am going to miss out. Still, weather wise it couldbn't be a worse time to be outdoors so I'll console myself with that for the mo.

Btw, for some strange reason your avatar reminds me of Matthew Barney's Cremaster Series...

The NZ show should be fantastic. Quite an intimate venue without much space between the band and the crowd. Also has a seated area up on the top tier for anyone who wants to 'enjoy' the show and take pics.

Oh yes? In Matthew Barney's vids one can see scenes from within the
Chrysler Building in New York ... had never imagined your pic could
show a place in a European city like Prague ...

Such concerns are actually one reason why I'm quite pleased
they're playing NZ and Australia during the first half of next year ... Laughing ...

As it seems, there are tickets available again from 24 January 2012

Soundwave Festival wrote:

**NEW**
The process for buying/selling/trading SW12 tickets has changed.
Gone is the old event profile which was being used by less than decent people (that's the nicest way it can be said) to operate as rogue traders.


See also this page, where many people are trying to exchange tickets now ...

Seriously - no news?? Does that mean we all stinged out and only went to NZ/the Corner gigs? (which were marvellous)...

From the comment the guy who posted it wrote underneath, this setlist http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/the-sisters-of-mercy/2012/royal-melbourne-showgrounds-melbourne-australia-bdee9ea.html seems genuine.

Thanks, Nik ... a great link! ... We are not worthy! ... I've updated the Wiki.

What a setlist for a gig as short as that, btw ... I wish I had been there.
Don't know why it reminds me of Dusseldorf 2003 ... maybe because of Vision Thing after Lucretia.

Perhaps not if you read the review here http://www.thevine.com.au/music/live-reviews/soundwave,-melbourne-2012-_-live-review,-photos20120305.aspx?ctpage=3
Ironic that the sound was seemingly so poor here (even according to Our fearless leader! himself) when judging by the YT clips it was fantastic at the Corner Hotel shows.

... Laughing ... well, that doesn't sound all bad ... Mr. Green Laughing ... and anyway, those mega festivals worldwide ... Rolling Eyes ... *sigh ...

What does count for Soundwave though, is that they, at least, care for some sideshows, where bands can show their full potential ... Wink ...
