If you think that The Sisters of Mercy is not your cup of tea anymore, than you should for sure come and see this one stage! The Mission still rocks and you’ll notice pretty fast what other bands are missing! They still rock and still produce great albums! 

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 Nr.1 in the UK alternative charts, the first one, Serpent's Kiss, being the top selling independent single of 1986, before signing a worldwide record deal with Phonogram Records (now Universal). Their first single for the new label, Stay With Me, went straight into the UK chart at Nr. 30 followed by their debut album God’s Own Medicine at Nr. 14. Over the next eight years the band released six more albums and enjoyed a further 13 top 40 singles including classics such as Wasteland, Tower Of Strength, Beyond The Pale, Deliverance and Butterfly On A Wheel. Total worldwide album sales to date have now well exceeded 4 million. During this period, The Mission enhanced their reputation as one of the best and most exciting live bands in the world winning countless accolades and inspiring both lurid media stories and a fanatical following as they toured constantly including highlights such as seven sold out consecutive shows at the Astoria Theatre in London (a house record never beaten), headlining the famous Reading Festival twice, and also playing with U2, The Cure and Robert Plant.

So don’t miss them!
