The Mission have announced a 2017 European tour.
The band have just wrapped up the first leg of shows to mark their 30th anniversary and also in support of their 11th studio album Another Fall From Grace – but they’ll head out on the road again in May, with their performance in Sheffield, UK, on the 26th billed as singer and guitarist Wayne Hussey’s birthday celebration show.
Hussey says: “Well, it’s now just over a week since we played our last show of the year in Auckland, New Zealand, and after the fun and frolics we enjoyed over the course of the last two months on tour, we are already looking ahead to doing some more next year. So, do you wanna do it all again? We do.
“With that in mind we are pleased to be able to announce more shows for next May and June. There will be a couple more shows added to this tour – one of which is a big one – which will also be announced as soon as we have all the details.”
Tickets of on general sale from 10am on December 2 (Friday)
To mark the announcement, The Mission have released a new video for their track Blood On The Road. It was filmed on tour in Bristol, Cologne, Utrecht and Paris by James Sharples.
