THE SISTERS OF MERCY TOURS
1996-2010
 

Welcome. This webzine is dedicated to concerts of the British band The Sisters of Mercy which were played at what seems to be the end of their career.

For what it's worth, some of these shows were good enough to inspire people to travel half the world on their own money just to see them, and they mostly lived up to self-declared "industrial groove machine" slogan.

But the ban on album releases caught up with the band - though the groove remained where it was, but momentum died out for both the harcore fans, who got tired of hearing the same things year after year, and for those expecting (and failing) to hear the classics in their classic form.

Even so, some people are already gearing up for more half-world trips for the next tour which is look to be set for Europe in 2010.

This webzine chronicles it all. For what it's worth.
