THE SISTERS OF MERCY
English rock legends The Sisters Of Mercy have announced a show at the Mandela Hall on Tuesday 8th July.
The English rock band are getting back on the road and will play Mandela Hall on 8th July 2014. Formed in Leeds in the late 1970’s, they have had some changing line ups over their long career, but the remaining constants are singer Andrew Eldritch and drum machine Doktor Avalanche. The current line-up also features Chris Catalyst and Ben Christo on guitars and backing vocals.
With three studio albums (“First and Last and Always”, “Floodland” and ”Vision Thing”), as well as compilations and EPs, Sisters have had many descriptions of their sound, mixing rock, metal, pop and psychedelica, they describe themselves as an “Industrial Groove Machine”.
The Sisters of Mercy haven’t recorded new material since the early 1990’s as a form of protest against their record label, before parting company in 1997. The band continues to tour and keep their new material for their live shows, which includes their influential back catalogue and dazzling lighting.
They have shared the stage with a wide range of artists, for example the Ramones and Public Enemy and toured all over the globe.
Tickets are priced £25 (excluding booking fee) and are available from Queen's Students' Union, Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.ie
