The support band 'The Membranes' were really good, but don't think that the majority of the crowd really got them. As for The Sisters of Mercy, they were fantastic played for 1 1/2 non-stopped and did most of the fan favourites. Only three things let the evening down Way too much smoke/dry ice - for a lot of their set you could only see 1 guitarist on stage. The sound wasn't the best - from where I was standing it was sometimes hard to understand what was being said or sung on the stage. The crowd - I honestly don't know why many of the crowd was there, didn't dance, didn't sing along and didn't even clap at the end of songs, or even at the end of the set - very disappointing crowd
The Membranes were sadly underwhelming for a punk band, and the Sisters powered through their set with barely a word said to the audience. Having said that, the audience were offish and largely passive, so perhaps that was putting the band off. Final song came and went and it was 'lights up, go home', which was slightly sad. Still a band checked off my bucket list, so can't complain!
