Difference between revisions of "European Summer Festivals 2019"
Revision as of 11:54, 10 January 2020
In December 2018, after almost a year of silence, The Sisters of Mercy gradually announced
various summer festival performances all over Europe in 2019. Finally, seven concerts were envisaged
in total. To everyone's surprise the first concert was scheduled for France followed by Spain, Germany,
Austria, Switzerland and Portugal.
In January 2019, announcements trickled in of a worldwide club tour in autum 2019. However, as events drew near it showed, however, that Chris Catalyst would not be available for touring with The Sisters of Mercy this year and speculations started about who might be the guitarist of choice to replace him.
