Rumours Club Announcement Poster March 1983
The entrance of the venue on Havelock Road, Hastings when it was called The Crypt


Rumours Club, Hastings, England

Part of The Sisters of Mercy's UK Spring Tour in 1983.

Support act: The Dicemen

For a very long time, this concert was thought to have

taken place on 16 March 1983 in Hastings at the

The Crypt. And while the date of the gig had to be

corrected with the discovery of the announcement

poster on the right side in social media, the venue

was not all wrong, as The Crypt temporarily changed

its name into Rumours Club in the 1980s, before it

got renamed back again some time in 1983.

Anyway, there is not much known about this concert,

and no setlist - not to mention a recording - is available.

Some recollections from the gig, its circumstances and more interesting information are, however, featured in the

entry Sussex and drugs and rock'n'roll of the lovely I Was A Teenage Sisters of Mercy Fan   blog, from where

we have also captured the picture of the announcement here. Check it out...
