They have returned to give us the best concert experience.  They came to play at the intimate Bimbo’s 365 in San Francisco.  We arrived to the venue and the line quickly wrapped out around the block.

April 18, 2024

We are so excited to share that post-punk rockers The Mission are returning to San Francisco as they head out on a West Coast  Spring Tour. They will be playing at Great American Music Hall on May 9th and is sure to be a show you won’t want to miss. The show will be the last one right before they play at Pasadena’s annual Cruel World Festival which brings together an amazing lineup of bands; Duran Duran, Simple Minds, Adam Ant, Blondie, Interpol, etc. Vocalist/Guitarist Wayne Hussey comments,  “It’s a very eclectic bill… a lot of bands playing that I’d like to see,” he says. “It’s a shame we don’t generally get festival lineups like this in Europe. They tend to be more genre-specific. Hence, we usually just play goth/rock festivals which can be frustrating as I really don’t see us as exclusively fitting into any particular genre.” You can head over HERE and pick up tickets for the San Francisco show! To get you ready check out a playlist of our fave tracks: Check [Read More]
