The Royal Albert Hall is a concert hall on the northern edge of South Kensington, London, and is one of the UK's most treasured and distinctive buildings. The Hall is a registered charity held in trust for the nation, and receives no public or government funding. Since the hall's opening by Queen Victoria in 1871, the world's leading artists from many performance genres have appeared on its stage.
Recorded at the Royal Albert Hall, London, 18th June 1985. Backsleeve notes: All tracks are published RCA Music/Candelmaesse Ltd. except - Floorshow, Alice.
The Sisters: when you see them, they're sheathed in dry ice. Even when he's shaved his hair off or dyed it milky-white and is wearing baggy cargo trousers, Eldritch is still more Gothic than anyone - he understand the spirit of the thing, which is more important than the look. Of course, back when this was filmed, the look WAS the look. Too many video manipulation graphics. I saw this concert at the Albert Hall and found the YouTube 1985 London concert much more enjoyable.
The Sisters of Mercy are an English rock band, formed in 1980 in Leeds. After achieving early underground fame there, the band had their commercial breakthrough in the mid-1980s and sustained it until the early 1990s, when they stopped releasing new recorded output in protest against their record company WEA. Currently, the band are a touring outfit only. The Sisters of Mercy. Each album was recorded by a different line-up; singer-songwriter Andrew Eldritch and the drum machine called Doktor Avalanche are the only points of continuity throughout. The Sisters of Mercy completed the tour as a three-piece act, and said farewell to the fans with the final gig in London's Royal Albert Hall on 18 June 1985. Video recordings of this show were later released as "Wake". A music video of the song "Black Planet" was also released in which the Monkeemobile was featured.
Me and my mom thoroughly enjoyed Sir Cliff Richard's concert last night! He was of course fantastic. But also wanted to say that o thought the venue was brilliant - it is absolutely beautiful, the staff were all very helpful and polite, and seemed genuinely happy in their jobs.
The Royal Albert Hall has of course been an exclusive and high profile venue for well over a century and is a stunningly beautiful concert space and one that Wilson makes good use of. The show begins with a brief video and shots of the band getting ready to go on before starting up with Nowhere Now and it becomes readily apparent that the band is in fine form. He is next joined on stage by Ninet Teyeb for a beautiful rendition of Pariah, which was one of the singles from the ‘To The Bone’ album. As for the more technical aspects of the show, the concert is exquisitely shot. The colors and lighting are clear and bright, and at no point does the lighting wash out the performers, something that all too often has marred other live DVDs. Of course with Steven mixing the sound it sounds perfect.
But where's the wonderful spidery guitar-work from their first album? The atmospheric stuff? The answer is that because it sounds 'gothic', and Andrew Eldritch can't stand that tag, it's now turned into groove-heavy but utterly boring guitar work.
