The Sisters of Mercy have announced a 5-date UK tour this Autumn, with tickets going on sale on Friday 16 September at 10am. Formed in 1981 the band has a back catalogue spanning four decades and regularly performs new songs along with their well-known hits during live performances.
The Sisters of Mercy are Andrew Eldritch, Chris Catalyst and Ben Christo – plus one additional key member, Doktor Avalanche, a drum machine/sampler/synth device that constantly evolves over the band’s history.
They arrive back in the UK fresh from a tour of South America, including a performance in Rio, Brazil, on the final day of the 2016 Paralympic Games.
Commenting on the tour Chris Catalyst said:
We’re looking forward to visiting a few places that The Sisters have not played for some time. We’ll be playing some very classic songs and wearing some very outlandish shirts. And we’ll be seeing you down the front.
Andrew Eldritch added:
We are still hard, we are still shiny, you will like it.
