hah, 1996 ... a long wait from 1993 ... and two weeks before I had driven some 400km to once in a lifetime see The Sisters play in their chosen hometown of Hamburg ...
while arriving at Sporthalle Alsterdorf there was just NOTHING ... not even an information sheet at the door ...

Anyway, the gig in Ochtrup made it all good. Bright sunshine, a wonderful day and a wonderful Sisters concert with Andrew and Adam
playing themselves into ever better mood after a somewhat shy start ... Very Happy Mr. Green Mr. Green ...

After the gig when I was walking back to my car someone told me, they would play in Hanau the next day ...
I think I replied that, uhm, at first sight I probably wouldn't go there for one reason or other ... It wasn't me... ... Laughing Laughing ...

Ah, and there are some photos from Ochtrup at Rodney Orpeus Tour Diary Page ... http://www.rodneyorpheus.com/diary/96jul/jul.html ... Laughing Mr. Green ...

Yesterday was a missed opportunity, the Sisters have played many gigs on the 29th June.

As for today, the Sisters played in Kingston (South West London, not Jamaica) - https://sisterswiki.org/Thu,_30-Jun-1983, and then this date remained a gig free zone until 2006, when they played the Festival of Metal (https://sisterswiki.org/Fri,_30-Jun-2006), in Helsinki. So maybe this belongs in the Heartland Metal thread?!


Can anyone find details of a gig in Hull, the day after the Kingston Poly one ^? Sure I can remember getting back up here on the coach after a London gig, doing the s**t/shave/shower routine, then heading over to Hull on the Friday night

I missed one yesterday, but it is a bit of a ghost gig in the middle of a big tour - July 15th 1991, Verdun Auditorium, Montreal, Canada. Presumably a run of the mill Vision Thing era show, decent sized venue, big city, and at a guess, an under-attended one, seeing as this was the tour that got pulled after a few more dates.

https://sisterswiki.org/Mon,_15-Jul-1991

There are no known Sisters shows on 16th July.
Is it their equivalent of a national holiday I wonder?

Just read up about the venerable Verdun Auditorium, which is currently being renovated and the 1970's steel cladding is being removed to reveal the 1930's brick art deco facade. I know which one I prefer!

Thursday 17th July (https://sisterswiki.org/Thu,_17-Jul-2008), Festival Mares Vivas, Porto, Portugal.

Does anyone have this one that they are willing to share, it's missing from my collection.

Used to be up on Dark Circle Room (http://darkcircleroom4.blogspot.com/2009/06/the-sisters-of-mercy-festival-mares.html#comment-form), but I must have missed it way back then (strange, but I think of the 2008 gigs as being quite recent, but it's ten years - to the day!)

Yeah 10 years already. I still remember how dearly I wanted to go to Suikerrock, as I had already missed Zottegem in 2007 ... but again I couldn't manage to get a ticket from Belgium ... Sad ...

btw, check the Sharing Section ... Very Happy ...

Thanks!

3 from today, making up for the sheer bone-idle laziness that they've always have shown towards 16th July

Amphitheatre, Brookhaven,Long Island, New York, USA
https://sisterswiki.org/Thu,_18-Jul-1991. Looks like another ghost show on the ill-fated Tune In ... Turn On ... Load Out tour.

Forestglade Festival, Wiesen, Austria
https://sisterswiki.org/Fri,_18-Jul-1997
Get it at http://darkcircleroom4.blogspot.com/2013/08/re-upload-sisters-of-mercy-forestglade.html

July 19th, another show from the near phantom 1991 tour. If a Sisters gig doesn't get recorded or photographed, does it really happen at all?

20th July - Another on the 1991 Tune In tour, at Great Woods Amphitheater, Mansfield, Boston, USA (https://sisterswiki.org/Sat,_20-Jul-1991). Just how under-attended were these gigs?

And then the Super Crash festival in Rensburg, Germany in 97 - https://sisterswiki.org/Sun,_20-Jul-1997

A day at the beach, the real thing!

Stuffies, free fags, s**t beer, Giving Ground!!!, Floorshow!!!
Hand fed fresh veggies by some DM girls, building massive sand chairs to snooze through Van Morrison.
And then thunder. And lightning. And then rain. And all of a sudden being dressed head to toe in black leather on a beach in the rain was an ill advised wardrobe choice Wink

Two from today (24th July)

1991, on the Tune In... (https://sisterswiki.org/Wed,_24-Jul-1991). A famous venue (Radio City Music Hall) in NYC, so perhaps not so surprising that in contrast to the rest of the tour, there is evidence of this one. And a (professional) review: https://www.nytimes.com/1991/07/26/arts/review-pop-mix-and-match-show-with-snarling-and-anger.html.

I've been listening to Warrior Soul for longer than I have The Sisters. They played a show last winter just up the road from me so I went along. Odd sight seeing Kory Clarke, an American who seemed poised for mega-stardom in 1991, playing a show to less than 100 people in a back room in Croydon. He still has star quality, and the band/venue played what is probably the loudest gig I've ever been to. I've seen Motorhead, My Bloody Valentine, Mogwai, but never have I had a screaming in my ears like I did after that.

1993, supporting Depeche Mode in Zeebrugge (https://sisterswiki.org/Sat,_24-Jul-1993. I have a recording of this one and sounds abysmal! Borderline unlistenable, and if it wasn't for the (stupid) desire to collect every gig, this would be fit only for the trash!
