Wayne states: “Asking me to write about the anticipation of touring Europe whilst in the throes of a 12 week solo slog around the continent & British Isles is a bit like asking me to explain the taste of egg soufflé after being force-fed boiled eggs every day for 3 months.
There is a world of difference between a boiled egg and one that is souffléd. As it is touring solo and touring with The Mission. Hence, we, The Mission, are heading out to tour Europe & Brexit’ed UK in early 2021. Why? Don’t need a reason, we just fancy it.
Having toured Europe more recently it strikes me that one thing that unifies people of any & every culture and race is music. It brings people together to celebrate, to commune, to share the experience. This is why I’ve named the tour ‘The United European Party Tour’. Less a political statement (although my personal leaning - and I don’t speak for the rest of the band - veers toward Brexit being a huge backward step) but more a statement about how people can be united regardless of where they are born or where they live or their politics.
Music is about people, emotions, feelings, togetherness; not division, borders, extreme right or left or wanker politicians. So let’s get together, have a sing-song, some fun, and let’s celebrate life and being part of the human family."
All tickets already bought are valid for the new dates. If you can’t make the new dates or if you bought tickets for two nights in one city then you can get a refund on the tickets you won’t be using from point of purchase. Or alternatively, on the nights where we have reduced 2 shows to 1 you will be given the opportunity to use your 2 night ticket to bring an additional person to the rescheduled show (in the following places only: Milan, Warsaw, Helsinki, Munich, Berlin, Bremen, Oslo). Your local ticket company will be in touch to advise how this process will work. If this does not work for you then you'll be able to get a refund at point of purchase.
With the original members Wayne Hussey, Craig Adams and Simon Hinkler being joined by drummer Mike Kelly in 2011 and armed by one of the most rabid fan bases in the world The Mission will continue to excite the legions with the announcements of their forthcoming shows “The United European Party Tour” in 2021
