The Awakening will be the official support on the European dates of The Mission’s 30th Anniversary Tour this October. The US-based project of artist Ashton Nyte, originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, broke through with hits like “The Dark Romantics” and “The Sound Of Silence.” Nyte said of supporting The Mission, “Last year I had the absolute pleasure of joining the inimitable Wayne Hussey on stage to sing ‘Butterfly On A Wheel’. It is a song I used to attempt on acoustic guitar in my bedroom as a teenager, and singing it with the man who wrote it was a dream come true. Supporting The Mission now, as they celebrate 30 years of releasing beautiful music, is one of the greatest joys of my career. The Mission was most definitely one of the bands that inspired and influenced the birth of The Awakening. The dream just became an exquisite journey.”

Wayne comments,

I met Ashton for the first time when I was on tour in South Africa last year and from the moment we met I felt like I’ve always known him and we got on fabulously. When the tour finished I went back home to Brazil and Ashton back to the USA where he now lives with us promising each other that we would work together again sometime in the future. Well, events conspired to prevent that…until now. We kept in touch sporadically and when our tour was announced Ashton asked if he could come and support us with his band, The Awakening. Of course I said yes. So The Awakening will indeed be playing our European shows with us as our special guests and it’s my pleasure to be able to introduce Ashton and The Awakening to the Mission audience. Arrive early and catch them, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
