The Sisters of Mercy continue 30th anniversary tour with concerts in Europe, Japan

The Sisters of Mercy

With Doktor Avalanche in tow, frontman Andrew Eldritch will continue The Sisters of Mercy’s 30th anniversary tour with newly announced festival dates this summer and a pair of November concerts in Dublin and London — plus the goth-rock legends’ first-ever performance in Japan.

With little fanfare, the band played a short run of shows in Europe this past February and March dubbed SISTERS XXX. The trek picks back up again with a slot at the Sonisphere Festival in the Czech Republic on June 11, and continues into July with four festival dates, including a stop at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan.

After that, the Sisters have just two more shows announced: dates in mid-November in Dublin — the band’s first Irish concert in 14 years, according to fan site The Sisters of Mercy 2011 — and London. It’s unclear whether more shows are in the cards.

  1. Saw these guys in LA a couple of years ago. One of the most disappointing performances ever (from a band I love)

  2. 30 year anniversary and 21 years since their last album. Time for a new record. :)
