Ministry & KMFDM, Doing it again

Ministry & KMFDM, Doing it again

Ministry is touring this summer to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of classic industrial album The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste. To highlight the occasion, the band will recreate the original tour with KMFDM joining them (and Front Line Assembly as well).

“Since we are alive and kicking, we figured we’d hop in the way-back machine and recreate the infamous original tour with KMFDM, and add in Front Line Assembly as well. Don’t miss it this time because we’ll be in wheelchairs for sure in another 30 years," band creator Al Jourgensen says. The album was originally released in November 1989.

Dates below.
