The Mission XXV

Frontman Wayne Hussey has tapped goth-rock contemporaries Fields of the Nephilim and Gene Loves Jezebel to open The Mission’s upcoming 25th anniversary concert in London — and recently announced plans to add a second U.K. performance and “some mainland European shows” in October. Details of the additional concerts are forthcoming, and, so far, the reunited band — Hussey and original members Simon Hinkler (guitar) and Craig Adams (bass), but not drummer Mick Brown, who opted to sit out the reunion — are only slated to play Oct. 22 at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. The London concert will be the first by The Mission since the band’s string of album-spanning farewell gigs in London in February and March 2008.
