And indeed 35 Euro... as if I care ;D

Still better than U2 prices IMHO....

BTW for the Belgians: today there's even a whole page dedicated to the Sisters on EEN teletext! :eek: Page 810 or something...

Someone at the VRT is a Sisters fan I guess :)

IZ.
what did it say? "TT is momenteel niet beschikbaar"....
It was/is about the same as on the AB-site, so nothing much... A shame we couldn't get a screenshot though :(

nope, it was in 1998! :P I just introduced this gig in the weeding section last week

This afternoon I stopped at the AB to buy my ticket :D and the lovely girl at the desk said it goes very, VERY fast! She predicts that the Sisters gig will be sold out before wednesday!!! :eek:

So, any of you who want to get tickets: DO IT NOW!

Ordered online but still have to pay (by bank-transfer) is bought, I hope? :eek:

yeah, even the people at the AB are surprised about it and they aren't new to the business...
What can I say, Belgium loves The Sisters :kiss:
I knew Bauhaus was going to sell out, but that took a few weeks... This time we're talking days ...

About your payment, I 'd pay it right away if I were you! Just to be sure :wink:

your best guess is at the pub net to AB they will probablyplay sisters-cd's previous to the gig, as usual....problem is, I willl probanbly not be able to make it there, since I will be with a bunch of people (8 at the moment, probably 12)and it will be quite difficult to leave them on their own ;D
I'll probably recognize cristophe though, and will say hi then :)

I received a card from my Post Office that I received a registered letter, but I was not at home.

So I have to go and get them from the postal services tomorrow...

Due to my geographical isolation, I've not seen the Sisters since 2001. NOT something I've been too happy about.

That will change on 22nd April... I'm going to bring forward my yearly trip back to Europe and will be there at the Ancienne Belgique.

My (Belgian) friend tells me it's a pretty small, although good, venue.

Anyone know the capacity?

I know it is 2000. I have to play there on March 3, and that is completely sold out, which meant 2000 tickets sold. Anyone wants me to write something on the stage for Andrew to see? Or put thumbnails all around? ;D
