Ministry Cancel Fall European/UK Tour With The 69 Eyes & Wednesday 13

Ministry have cancelled their European/UK tour with The 69 Eyes and Wednesday 13. The trek was previously scheduled to take place this fall.

The news was confirmed by Wednesday 13:

“Hello everyone! We were told yesterday that the @weareministry European tour has been canceled and that’s all the info we have at the moment. This is truly beyond our control and we are devastated with this news. We hope to get a new headline tour booked soon so we can get back to our fans in Europe and the UK.”

The Damnation Festival in Manchester, UK also issued the following statement:

“We’ve just been told, literally minutes ago by e-mail, that Ministry have cancelled their entire European tour due to a festival they were due to play on that run being cancelled without any warning.

This is obviously a huge blow to Damnation, albeit not one that will have any impact on it taking place in Manchester in November.

We haven’t really had a chance to digest the news, or even start to consider a replacement as yet, but we didn’t want our fans to find out via third parties, or worse, have Ministry fans buying tickets tonight when we know they won’t be playing.

This is the statement we’ve been sent from the band:

‘Due to previously unforeseen circumstances, including the recent cancelation of a festival, we are forced to cancel our fall Europe tour. Hope to see you all next summer.'”

Petke and Fryer commented:

“Several weeks ago, a humanitarian catastrophe of colossal proportions began to unfold before our very eyes. Like millions of others around the world, my friend John Fryer and I found ourselves overwhelmed with waves of shock, intense anger, and profound sadness as we watched the horrific events in Eastern Europe.

The day the Ukrainian invasion began, our hearts began to ache, and they haven’t stopped since. They are hurting for everyone whose lives and well-being are being endangered; from the victims of the bombings to the thousands of Russians protestors who have already been arrested, to the millions of displaced people, to the inexperienced Russian conscripts who find themselves being used as ‘cannon fodder’ in a war they never wanted.

From those intense feelings, an idea was born. An idea that was inspired by Bob Geldof’s Live Aid concerts in the ’80s, and fed by our intense desire to be able to actively help our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

The end result is ‘Come Together (We Will Stop You)‘ by Lifeline International; a cover of ‘Come Together‘ by The Beatles, featuring performances from current and former members of bands such as Faith No More, Stabbing Westward, Rammstein, Filter, The Hardkiss (Ukraine), Revolting Cocks, Pigface, The Joy Thieves, Agnostic Front, Basement Jaxx, Gravity Kills, The Cassandra Complex, Mesh, blackcarburning, Deathline International, Vaselyne, and Black Needle Noise to raise money and awareness for the people of Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

Our number one goal for ‘Come Together (We Will Stop You)‘ is to directly and quickly help the people who need it the most. One of the most crucial parts of that process is ensuring that every last dollar that we raise is used properly, which is why we have chosen to donate 100% of the proceeds to UNICEF. Not only are they a long-standing organization that people already know and trust, but they are famously transparent when it comes to the money that passes through their organization. We have been in touch with them, and we’re pleased to report that we can designate every last dollar raised specifically for the people of Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

Keeping this affordable is also important to us, so the minimum donation is only $1. But because the cause is so important, we are actively encouraging everyone to donate up to their comfort level.

Let’s ALL ‘Come Together‘ and show the people of Ukraine and Eastern Europe that we hear them and that we truly care.

Christian and John”
