Never mind, interesting date, interesting place also...been there once.

Wasn't there someone complaining here they should play more in "Ex-YU", well it doesn't get more "Ex-YU" than Banja Luka :wink:

Room for very exotic dates end of July...

Indeed, I'd say that countries from former Soviet block (ex-USSR) may feel a bit left out, if we compare frequency of playing in both regions.

The castle is the one in the middle of Banjia Luka as we see in Maps ?
Goths play Golf too ...

Tried calling, but as expected, no reply.
Anyway, just booked the hotel.
Anyone coming ?
Lord, what can the harvest hope for, if not for the care of the reaper man.

Short text depicting Sisters requests to organizers
Short translation:
Drinks and spirits: Tea, Beer, Australian wine, high quality rum (mondays, wednesdays and fridays), Scottish whiskey (rest of the week).
Food: Cereals, Almond milk, vegetarian ham, ginger, exactly three lemons, sandwiches, croissants, chips and dips

Large clouds of smoke (this one is a surprise !!), floodlights pinponted to exact positions and my favorite - warm-up room equipped with heating units.

Someone should archive this link and your translation. I can't recall that such information saw the (flood)flight on the day.

Ok...so who is paying the Sisters then? This isn't even going to cover what's mentioned in the rider :P
Remember the Banja Luka show in 2006 got cancelled because of unprofessional organisation...

(look up Belgrade 2012 for another funny rider, reptile house indeed :innocent: )
