THE SISTERS OF MERCY
One of England's leading goth bands of the 1980s, The Sisters of Mercy are going on tour again this spring after wrapping up their 30th anniversary dates. Remember the legendary rockers explosive live performance at the Rockhal back in 2011? For the greatest pleasure of rock fans, they return to the Rockhal stage on 24 May 2014! Get ready for an unmissable show! We're not accepting any excuses from rock fans: reserve your ticket now!
Over the past 30 years, The Sisters have had plenty of high points, three utterly brilliant studio albums, a host of great singles and legendary gigs. The Sisters Of Mercy will be remembered as the greatest British gothic punk band.
Despite not having released any new material since 1993's single "Under The Gun", their music still sounds as fresh and exciting as they did from the outset. Furthermore, having been cited as a major influence by the likes of Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, My Chemical Romance and a host of others, it would be fair to say they're anything but a spent force riding the nostalgia train. Indeed with several new yet unreleased songs in their locker, we can only live and hope that one day a fourth Sisters record will emerge.
The Sisters of Mercy have seen many ups and some downs during their career, which is normal for a band that has existed for decades, but the fact that they are still out there performing on stage and delighting their most loyal fans proves that this band is a true legend. If you visit their website, Andrew Eldritch brings it to the point:
"We are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. We are intellectual love gods. We make records, sometimes. We play concerts, sometimes."
On 24 May 2014, The Sisters of Mercy are ready to set the stage of the Rockhal Club on fire again for one of their rare shows. Be part of it!
