EUROPEAN SISTER TOUR

While creating Sister, the band embarked on a European tour of nearly 2 months, perfecting the music before final sessions and mixes (I think). This tour, truthfully, has sparked much confusion on my end -- there are many debates over venues, dates, and even set lists. Though this tour is covered to an extent in Jrnls80s, a handful of information still remains unverified.
