The Sisters of Mercy - Gothenburg, Mudd Club, 15 May 1985 - Full show

Mudd Club, Gothenburg, Sweden

Part of The Sisters' Armageddon Tour 1985... and another gig on the birthday of Andrew Eldritch.
As the latter turned 26 on that day, the according line in First And Last And Always, which usually started the gigs during that tour, also changed from "25" to "26". Thanks to Spiggy Tapes a still video of this performance of the song is available for a listen on YouTube. More recently and more than 35 years on from the original event, the full live show (see here on the right side with many thanks to the uploader) has surfaced on YouTube.

An audience recording from the concert is in circulation among the fanbase.

Knockin' On Heaven's Door as played here appears on the LP-version of live bootleg Opus Dei.
The bootleg No Time To Cry and the LP-version of Opus Dei do also feature Train, while the
Opus Dei CD only includes Knockin' On Heaven's Door.

For some further interesting information on this gig including a few lovely photos, we recommend the entry Who put the Goth in Gothenburg – May 15th 1985 in the I Was A Teenage Sisters of Mercy Fan blog.
