Unused tickets

The Capitol Ballroom, Washington D.C., USA

Gig No. 2 of the American leg of the Event Horizon Tour in 1998.
Scheduled support act were Heavy Water Factory.

However, due to some ear infection on Andrew's part, this concert was cancelled completely. In fact, The Sisters had already started to soundcheck when Andrew felt in need of a doctor, who then banned him from performing.

According to SistersTours, this semi-official statement for the Dominion mailing list was released the next day :

"As already reported, yesterday's DC concert was cancelled.
 Mr Eldritch is suffering from a heavy cold and an inner ear condition
 caused by flying with said cold. After struggling through the
 New York gig, the Washington concert was cancelled on doctor's
 orders. Eldritch has improved sufficiently for today's Toronto gig
 to go ahead, though obviously he isn't 100% recovered as yet.

"No further cancellations are anticipated."
