Mallemunt Festival, Muntplein, Brussels, Belgium
NOTE: There has been quite some confusion for decades
over the correct date of this performance:
- According to The Sisters of Mercy's Official Gigography,
- it was the starting gig of the Trans-Europe Excess Tour in 1983.
- The Official Gigography and other sources detail, however,
- the 24th of August 1983 as the date of this gig.
- The information about the live compilation bootleg The Acid Rain
- mentions the same date, while its back cover merely states
- Brussels 8-83.
- Another live bootleg titled Razorblades gives the 5th of August 1983
- for the show.
- Pictures from the concert can be viewed at: New Wave Photos by Philippe Carly.
- These pictures as well are marked as of August 5, 1983.

Anyway, the festival poster up here on the left, which was done by Belgian Illustrator Ever Meulen, notes 28 Juli to 12 August as the festival period.
In addition, there is - eventually and with many thanks to SpiggyTapes - the still video down on the right side which shows an announcement
for The Sisters of Mercy's concert during the festival and also features a great recording of Anaconda.
This concert was recorded from the audience and is in circulation among the fanbase.
