Francs' Membership Pass/Ticket

Francs, Colne, England

There's nothing known about this gig; in all likeliyhood, there was NO concert of The Sisters of Mercy on this day.

Thorough and persistent research from the fanbase have revealed that in order to buy a ticket and attend a concert

with Francs, people would have to become a member of the club. Every visitor of Francs' and band members as well

would have to carry such a membership pass serving also as a ticket with them after signing it on arrival at the venue.

The one you see here on the right side has 14/3/83 as a date on it, maybe the day of issue after pre-order.

Anyway, these modalities could be the reason why a concert of The Sisters of Mercy on March 14th, 1983 was

wrongly perceived to have taken place for a long time.

Fact is, though, that during the Kid Jenson Show on BBC Radio One, which was recorded on 6 March

and first broadcast on 10 March 1983, several then upcoming concerts of The Sisters of Mercy

were mentioned publicly, including the one in Colne at Francs on March 26th.

The Sisters' Colne concert did, btw, also get a mention in the incredible great interview Shine Like Thunder: The First Golden Age of The Sisters of Mercy

of August 30th, 2017 by Mark Andrews for The Quietus... a readable piece of Sisters History ... ;-)) ...
