Industrial metal pioneers Ministry will be performing in venues across the country on The Industrial Strength Tour this summer. The Chicago native rockers are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their album The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste. KMFDM and Front Line Assembly will join the band as supporting acts.
The summer tour kicks off on July 1 in Seattle, Washington (Tickets) and will stop in major U.S. cities like Denver (Tickets), Royal Oak (Tickets), Cleveland (Tickets), Philadelphia (Tickets), and San Francisco (Tickets).
Presales for select shows begin on Jan. 14 and tickets go on sale to the general public on Jan. 17. A limited number of Premium Seating Options will also be available to purchase for select shows.
Led by Al Jourgensen, Ministry has amassed a huge fan base across multiple decades of making music. The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste is the band’s fourth studio album. The record hit a 30-year milestone since its release in November 2019. It remains a fan-favorite collection of notable tracks that delve into politically-charged topics including corruption, drug addiction, nuclear war, cultural violence, environmental demise, and so much more.
Ministry fans can gear up to hear classic tracks from the album like “Thieves,” “Burning Inside,” “So What” and more. No other band has delivered Industrial Metal to the masses like Ministry. After all these years, Jourgensen and company arguably still remain masters of the genre. In 2018, they toured to support their Billboard US Independent Albums Top 10 album, AmeriKKKant.
Now, the band is ready to light up stages at venues across the U.S. to honor one of their most beloved records. Fans should prepare to rock out in signature Ministry fashion.
