With their first-ever livestream performance scheduled for November 20, industrial pioneers Ministry are giving fans everywhere the chance to see the band live. Recently, frontman Al Jourgensen and the rest of the band played at the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville and opened for Nine Inch Nails for an unique one-time concert in Cleveland.
They had to postpone their planned fall European tour owing to unavoidable circumstances. The band is hosting a special livestream show to wrap up their 2022 gigs in order to reach fans around the world.
“We never intended for Cleveland with NIN to be our last show this year,” said Jourgensen. “Due to circumstances beyond our control we had to cancel Europe but we didn’t want to end 2022 without one last show, and this will be one for the books.”
In addition to songs from their most recent album, 2021’s Moral Hygiene, Ministry will perform a collection of timeless songs. As of right now, the full band consists of Jourgensen, Roy Mayorga (of Stone Sour), Cesar Soto (of Man The Mute), Monte Pittman (of Madonna, Prong), Paul D’Amour (of Tool, Feersum Ennjin), and John Bechdel on bass. A press release teases “possible special guests” joining the group (Killing Joke, Fear Factory).
Tickets for the livestream, which will start on November 20 at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET, cost $17.99. (available via streaming platform HITKOR). Fans can purchase a “All Access Pass” that includes the event as well as behind-the-scenes material and an exclusive interview for an additional $2.
