Wacken Open Air Festival - Germany

- Thu, 01 August - Sat, 03 August - WACKEN OPEN AIR FESTIVAL 2019 - Germany -

Online Announcement of The Sisters of Mercy playing Wacken in 2019


This is the first time ever, The Sisters of Mercy play Wacken Open Air.

The festival allegedly sold out already before The Sisters' appearance

was announced. Really? - No.

There are lots of chances to find a ticket !!!

Wacken organisers have outsourced ticket sales partly to officially contracted

travel agents, who might even get you a bus, train or flight to the festival from

your country and also sort out a hotel or campsite for you, including the

necessary shuttle service to the festival grounds!!!

Check out this page at the Wacken Festival homepage

and chose the best travel partner from your country.

For the UK, this would be - for example - Argon Events;

there are, however, travel partners from all over the world.


Beyond that, there is always the Wacken Community.

They operate a forum in English language as well, where you might try to find a ticket from people unfortunately not able to attend ... ;-)) ...

A discussion page around The Sisters @Wacken 2019 has also been installed @The Heartland Forums ...

Sisters Biography

The long-awaited Sisters biography written by Mark Andrews is in its final stages for release in the form of a pledge campaign.


Paint My Name In Black And Gold


The book concentrates on the first five years of The Sisters of Mercy and will be published by Unbound. It will also be available in ebook format.

All details about the pledge campaign, the book and some further information are available @The Heartland Forums here.

Quotes from the author

Paint My Name In Black And Gold is the story of the first five years of The Sisters of Mercy.

In that time The Sisters rose from being local heroes in Leeds, to one of the premier alternative bands in the UK and Europe, before blowing apart on the verge of major rock stardom. Their path was strewn with brilliant singles, exceptional EPs, extraordinary album tracks and legendary live shows...

To make the book happen, Sisters fans and the Sisters-curious need to pledge. There are different ways to do that. When the minimum amount of advance funding reaches the magic “100%”, the result will be a beautiful book charting the first five years of the band. So I really need your help to share The Sisters’ story. When you pledge, your name will be printed in the book and there are all sorts of rewards for you to enjoy too.

If we don’t reach that level, the reality is that there will be no book.


So there's plenty reason you really shouldn't miss this wonderful project!!!

Join the pledge campaign at Unbound/The Sisters of Mercy/Paint My Name In Black And Gold.






Upcoming developments will be listed here as usual and as soon as we get aware of them.

Updates are also available either here or in The Heartland Forums' Sisters Chat, or (in German) at poison-door-net...

Anyway, we recommend you keep an eye on what's INCOMING (The Sisters' Twitter account) ... ;-) ... and on The Sisters of Mercy's Official Live News Page ...

To organise meet-ups before any gigs go to either Heartland or, for the German-speaking community, to Poison Door.

For information about earlier tours of The Sisters of Mercy, please check Sisters Tours or the SistersWiki Gigography.





We're always looking forward to seeing you again !!!
