Prepare to don the black eyeliner and the leather jackets as legendary 1980s goths The Sisters of Mercy are set to play Liverpool this November, Getintothis’ Mark Davies has the details.
We all know a certain someone who claims they were a goth back in the ’80s, and they will always rattle off a collection of bands they heralded, and undoubtedly The Sisters of Mercy always come in at the top.
Well, for all those closeted goths out there, it’s time to grab the hairspray, velvet dresses, and rejoice! The pioneering, Andrew Eldritch-fronted gothic rockers are set to play an iconic date at Liverpool’s Olympia on November 25.
We’re sure they need no introduction, but for those young ones out there reading, we’ll drop a few bits of knowledge on you. The Sisters of Mercy originally formed in Leeds, breaking into the mainstream in the 1980s with cult singles such as Alice, Body and Soul and Temple of Love.
The band then went on to continued success with the release of three full-length albums in the years since, and after what seems like far too long, return to Liverpool from a string of festival appearances across Europe and South America, to give fans what is sure to be an anthemic evening.
The Sisters of Mercy play Liverpool Olympia, Friday, November 25. Doors at 7pm, support TBC. Presale tickets available from Ticketquarter now, general sale from Friday, 16 September.
