Gig & Concert News - The Sisters of Mercy Announce NZ Tour

The Sisters of Mercy Announce NZ Tour

03 October 2022 - 0 Comments

UK’s dark rock legends The Sisters of Mercy will be returning to New Zealand this October, playing shows in Auckland and Wellington.

Recently celebrating their 40th anniversary, The Sisters of Mercy are one of the most important bands to emerge from the post punk scene, with the imposing presence and the heavily melancholic voice of Andrew Eldritch giving their mark. They are a reference point for the dark rock sound and the dark culture in general with their music gaining cult status and has since been cited as a major influence by the likes of Metallica, Nine Inch Nails and My Chemical Romance.

A statement accompanying the tour news says, "It howls, it's grindingly beautiful, and it's probably heading your way.” Continuing in a similarly poetic vein, the statement adds, "New and hence unreleased songs make up half of any Sisters’ set these days, although the classics get a good thrashing in rotation. Having derived their light show from the Big Bang (gleefully inventing rave lighting in the process), the Sisters see no reason to tone it down, and will be exploding in all their usual glory.".

Over the course of four decades The Sisters of Mercy released three, utterly brilliant and hyper influential studio albums scaling the charts around the globe and have amassed a legion of devoted fans who flock to see classics such as Lucretia My Reflection, Temple of Love and This Corrosion, a testament to their incredible live shows.

“[The Sisters are…] a lean glittering groove machine for the new millennium, leaving the sullenly anachronistic reformations of their contemporaries far behind.”Metal Hammer
