Fuzz was too small and tickets run out ;D
It is Greek yes....
New place has better access with metro.
Cool... ;D ;D ;D ... And what is the name of the venue? Or is it enough to know the street and housenumber because it's full of venues?

The venue has the same name with the street name. It is the famous from ancient times Iera Odos ;D

Fuzz Club sold out, but promoters have changed to a bigger venue, so now it is NOT sold out :)

Similar to what happened in Cologne.

Just to be 100 % certain, is it the building marked "Gazi music hall" on your map?

In the center there is a dot named Vox if you change to streetview it's the other side of the street a brown building. :)
2 minutes walk from metro station Kerameikos
From Iakchou street (where it says Gazarte) forward to Iera Odos Av. then right till that brown building.

Another Greek interview here;

RockOverdose: Would you like to send a message to your fans in Greece?

Andrew Eldritch: I’ll do that from the stage with the microphone!

According to :von: the best compliment to him was "System Of A Down"'s reaction back in 2012 Australia tour when they saw him backstage they played without hesitation this Marian cover without signal or anything during their performance.

More in greek in Rocking.gr Eldritch interview :notworthy:

Thanks for the link, enjoyed that interview (thanks to google translate). Though as a fellow Forest fan, I'm probably biased.

Have you noticed in recent interviews, not only this tour but the last years, that he almost emphasizes how he prefers movies instead of music, to sort of really stress just how disinterested he is in music? :lol:
That being said, I *can* actually see, from his answers, some product being released nowadays, as it's now possible to do without the effort of a full album release. "We have so many songs" sounds interesting.

"We are working on rescheduling the Athens show for next year. Huge apologies to all; especially those who have travelled from far afield."

https://twitter.com/tsomofficial/status ... 3876178944

The full message (collated from various tweets):
We are very sorry to announce that the remaining dates of our tour have been postponed due to an outbreak of viral laryngitis in the band.

Köln Palladium has been rescheduled to Dec 8 and Berlin Columbiahalle will be on Dec 9. Tickets will still be valid for these shows.

We are working on rescheduling the Athens show for next year. Huge apologies to all; especially those who have travelled from far afield.

Andrew received a doctor's note this morning instructing him not to sing for at least 7 days. Chris and Dave are also suffering, along with several of the crew. We hate cancelling gigs; we hope that the rearranged shows will make up for it.

So, to reiterate, tickets will be valid for the rescheduled shows, but if you need a refund, please see your ticket office. Sorry, all.

I'm laughing right now, but as a friend once said, it's not a laughter of joy, but of insanity - the Sisters are currently peaking and better than..in an eternity. I buy two tickets, Berlin and Athens, both are cancelled, and postponed to the only dates in the foreseeable future when I can NOT attend any concerts :eek: ;D :lol: :cry:

Thanks Johan :notworthy:

But, fortunately I know the right way to take on this kind of problems - get drunk and pretend they don't exist ;D

Most disturbing is actually that I'm convinced all three postponed gigs will be true above average stormers.

Does anyone know if any more tickets are being released for sale for the new Athens venue? There isn't a link on the Sisters website. Mr Squeakymouse thinks he might have found a link but it points to the original venue and its all in Greek. Thanks :?
