Celebrating 30 Years Of

The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste



Special Guests Front Line Assembly Remain On Lineup,

Plus Newly Announced Addition HELMET

Previously Purchased Tickets Valid For New Dates,

Refunds Available At Point Of Purchase

Ministry’s Upcoming 15th Studio Album Coming Soon

Ministry will be moving forward with the much anticipated Industrial Strength Tour, today announcing that the previously announced spring dates have now been moved to October and November 2021 to allow additional time for COVID-19 restrictions to be lifted as the country nears towards more normalcy this fall.

The new dates will kick off October 3, 2021 in Albuquerque and run through November 3, 2021 in Seattle, hitting all the previously announced markets except Pittsburgh, PA and Missoula, MT which unfortunately have been canceled and Baltimore, MD which will be postponed for a later date. The Buffalo, NY show has moved to a new venue and previous ticket purchases will be honored. And an additional show date has been added for Charlotte, NC that will go on sale Monday, March 22 at 10 am ET.

The tour’s special guests Front Line Assembly remain on the lineup for this one-of-a-kind celebration alongside newly announced support act Helmet. This special tour honors not only the 40th anniversary of Ministry in 2021 but also the 30th anniversary of revolutionary album The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste and will also include brand-new material from Ministry’s upcoming 15th studio album. Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 protocols for visas, travel and vaccine distribution in Germany as well as immigration uncertainty, KMFDM will regrettably not be taking part in this tour.

Says Ministry founder Al Jourgensen, “With current COVID-19 restrictions, we are forced to again move our scheduled March/April 2021 U.S. tour to October/November 2021 and hoping normalcy returns by then. With vaccinations and better care happening, we all feel the fall is realistic. We can’t wait to get out there and play not only The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste material for you all but some stuff off our new album as well. Stay safe and see you in the fall!”

The full list of new, confirmed tour dates are below. All original tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates in October and November; or, ticketholders can receive refunds at the point of purchase. Fans are being asked to check with their local markets and venues for new ticket purchases. All of the information can also be found at www.ministryband.com/tour.
