The Sisters Of Mercy formed in 1980 in Leeds, England, taking their name from the Sisters of Mercy (sisters of mercy), the prostitutes in the song of the same name by Leonard Cohen: "We liked the ambiguity between the original meaning of the expression, which referred to an order of nuns, and that adopted by Cohen". explains the singer Andrew Eldritch. The disturbing soul of their music, which constitutes a fundamental page of the dark-rock e post-punk. Indeed, from the very first years of their career, the group established itself in the dark Olympus alongside bands such as Siouxsie and The Banshees, The Cure, Bauhaus e Joy Division. The shaman voice of darkness of Eldritch remains, along with those of Peter Murphy e Siouxsie Siouxamong the most exciting in the entire Gothic genre.

Ad aprire il concerto saranno gli Hugs of the Sky, formazione che nasce dalla fusione di due band belghe in occasione della registrazione di uno split album durante l’estate del 2018, e da allora ha pubblicato tre lavori in studio, il più recente dei quali è Virtual Lullaby Circus. La band sa sempre come sorprendere il suo pubblico, con rielaborazioni di vecchio materiale e scambi di strumenti tra i componenti.
