Summer 1998 Tour Logo

After the Event Horizon Tour in January and February that year, Summer 1998 was marked by six festival appearances all over Europe plus some two gigs in Tokyo envisaged for a visit to Japan, which unfortunately did not materialise. The first of the afore mentioned festival appearances was The Sisters' second gig at Roskilde Festival, where they stepped in for The Verve. The Verve had to cancel their slot as their bassist was ill.

Please check the individual links in the Tour Schedule below for details, links, pictures, and setlists of each concert.

In addition, some tour statistics are available @The Sisters of Mercy Database v0.5 beta/Summer 1998.
