1998 March: britpoppers Oasis end their American tour in Palacio de los Deportes. 1999 October: britrockers The Sisters of Mercy end their American tour in Palacio de los Deportes. Must be pure coincidence, as was the earthquake a couple of weeks before the first Sisters Mexican show ever.

The setlist was the standard one, with two interesting exceptions: included before the two standard encores was one-song encore of Comfortably Numb/Some Kind of Stranger, and the show was finished with the second Sister Ray monster this tour. Oh, those lucky Mexicans.

    Written by Enrique Calleros (MXrock99@netscape.net) for The Sisters of Mercy Tours site

    After a long, long wait (since 1991 the first rumor) finally TSOM played in Mexico City, the venue was the East Pavilion at the sport palace, a big area (like a warehouse).

    I arrived at 7:30 one hour before the programming schedule, a lot of "darky" people was arriving, I expect an opening act (the Tube) but when I saw the staff preparing the stage with the setlist, towels, spring water bottles in the middle, and "corona" beers at the right side of the stage, I forgot about the opening act.

    At 8:45 the lights were off and the intro music started as the smoke and the lights did. I saw a tiny figure coming from the center of the stage with a silver shirt and black pants, when the first notes of Ribbons started all the crowd become wild, jumping, singing and moving from one side to the other, originally I was at the 10th row but as the music advanced I moved to the third row in the front! I could not believe to seeing Andrew so close, during the first three songs the sound was so loud, when Amphetamine started the sound got better.

    When they played Temple, one of my shoes was off I needed too get it back, because in the front the crowd didn't stop jumping, body surfing and moving wildly. During Dominion I felt an earthquake down my feet, for all the people jumping and jumping! Till Romeo the environment became little bit quite, Flood II was great (in my personal opinion the best of the night), after the first encore an excellent Comfortably Numb with Strange Kind of Stranger made me feel out of this world, on Vision Thing I was so exited an did body surfing, but when I arrived to the stage, Andrew moved to the left side! I saw the rest of the concert at the right side just in front of the speakers wall - so loud.

    Andrew was in very good mood, smiling and sending kisses, the rhythm base by the Doktor was completely amazing! Adam and Mike are maybe the best lineup, since First and Last and Always.

    I don't know what was the name of the last song after the third encore (this one was not included in the original set list) but was mixed with a little fragment of Lucretia.

    At 10:20 they left the stage, lights up and lovely madly from the doors starting to sound, there was a lot of shoes, watches, and plastic glasses at the floor, all looked so dirty. I could get one original setlist from one technician in the master console.

    Definitely was an orgasmic night!!!
