I enjoyed the gig. Sound was better away from the mosh pit but it was fun being boisterous and being thrown at the stage during Jihad. Wish I could go again 'tomorrow'. Great seeing old friends.

I'll try to write a lot of words and sorry if I'm repeating what others wrote. I skimmed and didn't see too many details in prior reviews. Also, thank you to those who fed me gin since I hadn't yet gotten local currency myself (you know who you are) but it may dampen the accuracy of all these words.

I'd just gotten off the plane and barely set down my luggage before going off to the venue. This is actually the first time I've seen the Sisters of Mercy in London, oddly. I abandoned my airbnb early and figured I'd wander around Camden a bit, but there was a decent crowd already lined up so I joined them. Good to see everyone again.

Large crowd by the time the doors opened. A few had traveled just for Therapy? and I switched with a fan who wanted the front for their set and got to observe a bit more of the crowd that way. Therapy? was good and the crowd was receptive and energetic. Got pummeled a bit by crowd surfers, which is always fun until it isn't. I thought it was a good set and there were a couple of moments that "landed" for me, but all-in-all, it was just an opener to me.

For the main show... There was an added dose of drama to this production. From the timing to the stage to the vocals, it is an enhanced experience. There are mirrors. Big mirrors in the back and the lights and smoke were thoughtfully done. It all creates an atmosphere and impact. The sound was different than past shows but not dramatically so. The elements of the sound were more distinct and paced to deliver a nuanced whole. Listen for that on recordings. (And then explain it to me because I can't really explain it much better, sorry.) The result was clean but not simple and felt and sounded transportive. I bet it would be cool to experience in an altered state. (If you'd like to take that bet, I may try to prove it tomorrow.Wink

I was excited to hear Kiss the Carpet but the energy did wax and wane, as others have said. FALAA, More, and others really delivered with a restrained build and ultimate payout. Dr. Jeep and Vision thing were others that struck on different levels than they did last year. I liked Dr. Jeep more than usual but I've been finding Vision Thing depressing because it reminds me of my own personal failures to make the world better. Revolver was powerful and well-executed.

The crowd was enthusiastic and Andrew was engaged and performing well. I did notice that his elbow/arm still seems to be an issue, but it didn't seem to interfere with the performance and maybe I imagined it anyhow.

I really liked the venue and I'm kind of happy just to not be at home, but I thought this was a great show. I was not in the right frame of mind to enjoy it at first, but (as it usually does with the Sisters and only with the Sisters) that took care of itself quickly. And changed my state of mind. Which is why I'm here, really.

Afterwards was fun as well and got to meet some heartlanders. I'd mention names but I don't want to taint anyone's mystique. Looking forward to tomorrow.

As an added bonus for you t shirt fans there was a "Roundhouse" variation of the tour shirt. Same front print but with Roundhouse September 2017 on the back. Purchased after queuing for fifteen minutes to get to the merch stand.

(No tea towels so no brownie points for me...)

No Ribbons last night Wierded Out
And apologies for not getting to speak to or catch up with anyone - trains, crowd etc. Will try harder tonight!

Von yelps like a poodle asking to be shown the door, and whatever subtlety that ever existed in the muzak is but a clumsy riff of an ever more distant riff. Still, got to hand it it to the man who can't sing, can't play instruments but yet somehow fills a venue full of people who hold on to the old lie; a comfort blanket for the nondescript unwashed. Nostalgia isn't supposed to be this barren.

Taylor's shortcoming is to fail to retire gracefully or put his chopper on the line through the safe confines of the studio. Neither of which would aggregate as much had he chosen to not be quite so gobby at an age when he knew better.

But each their own.


Well said..I agree. Some still think Mr.E rocks....he did up tp about 2000...I was so embarrassed the last time.. Each to their pwn ofcourse...those who still enjoy it..rock on by all means!

Essential, never mind cool. Cheers for the fine coherent review We are not worthy!

I'm also most intrigued to hear Revolver, Moby's cover is glorious but can't say I've heard the original.

"Revolver" actually is not a cover as it was written by Moby especially for Our fearless leader! 's voice. There is a topic that was mentioned many many interviews and sources about that.
Waiting for tonite's gig and then will write further experiences and details for both gigs. Lots of Heartlanders in London it was a pleasure to meet some of them (you know who you are) and will catch up today as well. Very Happy

Nah, Revolver is a m*****n of Burma song the Mobster covered. Lift Me Up was the song he wrote with Eldritch in mind. Couldn't track him down to actually sing it though Wink


WTF, mirrors?! So that's the change Laughing

I've actually wanted to hear them cover that for about 20 years now! Pretty excited to hear this.

Although I didn't work up the courage to talk to anyone but my comfort blanket (brother), it was really lovely to be surrounded by so many sisters fans.
It was my first sisters gig and it was a dream come true. I can't believe I've now seen both walk away and rock and a hard place played live, it was perfect in my eyes.
Peace out guys, I'm happy now.
