Ministry is not allowing COVID-19 to stop its latest tour run from happening

The band announced Friday that it has moved its spring “Industrial Strength Tour” schedule to October and November. That is to allow restrictions put in place to be gradually lifted.

Front man Al Jourgensen talked about the re-scheduling for the tour, which celebrates the 30th anniversary of the release of the band’s album, A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste.

“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,” he said. “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 band’s new tour schedule is set to launch Oct. 3 Albuquerque, NM and to run through Nov. 3 in Seattle, WA. The band has made some changes to its upcoming live run. It has added Charlotte, NC on Oct. 20.

Meantime, the band will also reschedule its Baltimore, MD date and move the Buffalo, NY date to a new venue in the city. Additionally, the band’s dates in Pittsburgh, PA and Missoula, MT will not take place now.

All tickets purchased for the initial spring run will be honored for the upcoming fall dates, though ticketholders can also receive refunds if they so choose at the point of purchase. The updated tour schedule is noted below. Frontline Assembly remains as support and will now be joined by Helmet as additional support.
