Would you go see a Sisters of Mercy revival band? And do you know any good Sisters revivals?

Hello!

EDIT: Since I'm not sure whether the term translates well from my language, by revival I mean basically a copycat band that plays the original bands songs, while trying to replicate them as close as possible. It usually happens with bands have already stopped performing live.

SoM are supposed to be playing on a festival at the other side of my country, and since it's far and expensive I've been asking around whether it's worth it or not. Well, most of the replies have been that it's really not worth it, and that Eldritch basically hates his fans and is doing everything he can to make the show as unpleasant and awful as possible, disrespecting every song and the audience. I can not confirm whether it's true or exagerated, since I have not seen them personally but love the band and would love to, but if it's really the case than I am really disapointed – which lead me to an idea I wanted to discuss here.

Since I really want to see them live, I had a discussion with our local promoter about Sisters revivals, but have been told that they have a policy against revivals. I understand and respect that, because quite frankly I'm also not a fan of revivals, especially for bands that are still alive and performing and having original bands is always better than some revivals. So I would probably not go to a revival show, even if the band no longer plays.

But SoM are entirely different situation. I think it's an awesomely spiteful idea, to have a SoM revival play on a goth festival. The fans deserve a good show, from performers that actually respect their audience, and it's also a win-win situation since you do not have to support an artist who is, allegedly, a dick, but can enjoy their music.

Now, I have no idea about logistics and the copyright stuff regarding revival bands, especially since the band is still actively playing live, and it's also possible that SoM is actually not that awfull as I've been told (if it is exagerated and Eldritch is ok-ish, or even bad live but simply getting old and rusty (which is ok), instead of ruining the show intentionally and actually respects his audience, then I apologize for spreading hate and misinformation). There also may not be any good revivals.

The same idea has occured to me as a potential way how to solve issues with artists that have some scandals surrounding them, such as Mr. Kitty or She Wants Revenge. I would love to see them, but don't want to support their behavior, which could be solved simply by having a revival instead of the original band.

So, what do you think? What are your thoughts on revivals and would you go see SoM revival?

Would anyone like to see more goth figures of bands?

While there may a few and something like this came out recently:

Peter Murphy toy collectible to be released after Pandemic pause – Plasticgod

I've realized we don't have many goth collectable figures related to bands and high end quality sculptured figures of bands, compared to other genres. Do you think it would be a good idea to help make this happen of course in a way that doesn't seem overly commercial or misrepresenting anything ? If anything, it could be through a more smaller company or person with agreements made to ensure that it doesn't go in the wrong direction.

I think it would be interesting to see a series of detailed figures or dolls or miniature toys not just of the iconic groups but members of numerous band across genres including batcave, darkwave etc given that this toy trend has been a thing for 15 or so years now and for an an affordable price.

Any thoughts?

This was a Denver post by a friend posted on FB. I thought I would share here incase people didn’t know these bands were touring the US this year.

When you go to an event are you open to meeting new people or would you prefer to be left alone?

Just to let you know where I am coming from, I am a goth who has lived in an area that doesn't have much of a local scene, so i mostly participate online.

However, a place nearby is having a goth night soon and I intend to go to enjoy the music and hopefully, make some new friends.

What I am wondering from those of you who regularly go to goth events, are you open to being approached and potentially forming new friendships? or would you rather just be left alone? I don't want to bother people and make them uncomfortable and I figure most people don't want some stranger trying to talk to them when they are just there to dance and enjoy the music, but I am hoping that some people might be interested in talking and forming new friendships
