Says Ministry mastermind and creator Al Jourgensen, “So looking forward to doing another tour with Gary and the gang. We had such a blast the last time. The shows were amazing. Each band complements the other perfectly. Plus, both of our new releases are Kick Ass! Get your tickets and come join us.”
Ministry recently announced details for their groundbreaking 16th album, HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES, slated for release March 1, 2024 via Nuclear Blast Records and issued the first single and video for “Goddamn White Trash,” featuring Pepper Keenan.
“I’ll be going out on a North American tour with two legendary bands, Ministry and Front Line Assembly, straight after the London shows in April,” says Gary Numan in a recent news release. “These are primarily Ministry shows with FLA and me as guests. However, I’ll also be playing several of my own headline gigs in amongst the Ministry shows,” says Numan. So it is quite possible he may play his own headline show in Toronto around the same time if he cab squeeze it in ahead of his spring North American tour. We will have it here ion TOtimes if the announcement does drop.
