In the first of hopefully many shows to catch in SA from the tragic cancellation of Sound On Sound Fest, The Aztec Theatre has swooped up headlining industrial metal act Ministry.
That’s right – good 'ol Al Jourgensen (who’s now 59) and the boys are headed to the Alamo City on Sunday, November 12 to deliver their grinding industrial tracks to a city that’s been pretty supportive of the group since their rise to fame in the mid-’80s and early-’90s.
And even with the continued lineup changes, death of guitarist Mike Scaccia, and Jourgensen's battle with drug addiction (he’s been sober since checking into rehab earlier this year), Ministry is one of the few bands from industrial early-'90s peak that has continued to stay relevant.
