Fans will appreciate the touring band still features three-quarters of the original line-up - Wayne Hussey, Craig Adams, Simon Hinkler.

Back in late 1985 Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams left The Sisters Of Mercy and formed The Mission and in early 1986 embarked on their first European tour, supporting The Cult. They released 2 singles independently, both reaching No.1 in the UK alternative charts, before signing a worldwide record deal with Phonogram (now Universal).

Over the next decade the band delivered anthemic classics such as Wasteland, Tower Of Strength, Beyond The Pale, Deliverance and Butterfly On A Wheel - gaining a hard-earned reputation as one of the best and most exciting live bands in the world, winning countless accolades, with highlights like seven sold out consecutive shows at the Astoria Theatre in London, and twice headlining Reading Festival.

“The Mission have lost none of the passion and verve that had them rightly at the top of the live circuit tree.” Dom Daley – Uber Rock, June 2015
