This will be the first date on The Mission’s 25th anniversary tour, with Wayne Hussey, Simon Hinkler and Craig Adams back together to recreate the excitement and memories of a generation. “I have lived all over the world for the last 20 years, but I still think of myself as a Bristol lad, born and bred” says Hussey. “I have many family members living in and around Bristol so I’m fortunate to be able to visit three or four times a year and it always amazes me just how much it changes each time. A vibrant City, some of my favourite music has come out of Bristol. Having the opportunity to open The Mission's 25th anniversary tour in the City of my birth, somehow seems apt to me and completes the cycle. I’m really looking forward to it.” During their 25 years, The Mission have enjoyed worldwide success, in excess of four million album sales, racked up 14 Top 40 UK hits, and headlined Europe’s most prestigious festivals. The quality of both their recorded output and the excitement of their live shows, The Mission still command a fanatically loyal worldwide audience. O2 Academy Bristol will reach a landmark occasion this November, reflecting on a decade since opening in 2001. O2 Academy Bristol has presented over 2,500 events and welcomed some 2 million customers through its doors in the last 10 years.
