WAYNE HUSSEY (THE MISSION) SOLO SHOW
“So, I’m having the run of the house for a month or so whilst the World Cup is on and a few friends are flying over from the UK to stay to be nearer the action. Even managed to finagle myself a ticket for the England Vs Uruguay game in Sao Paulo. In return I have promised Cin, the wife, an extension to be built on the back of the house once the World Cup final is done and dusted. The building’s gonna take at least a couple of months so I thought it best to get out of there and let them get on with it. What could I do to occupy my time? I know. Go on tour.
Hence, in a fallow year for The Mission (and our alter-ego The Blood Brothers) these solo shows. It’s been a while since I’ve played solo in the UK and mainland Europe and as September/October isn’t yet too cold in northern Europe it seems an ideal time. Anyway, I need to earn some money to pay for the house extension. Two birds an’ all that.I am working towards and hope to have a new solo album ready for release to coincide but I can’t confirm that 100% as I keep getting distracted by Liverpool’s now probable amazing run to the title and of course I will also be distracted by the World Cup throughout June and July. You try and make a record in a World Cup summer! it’s nigh on impossible.
Anyway, I daresay I will have some new songs to play along with solo versions of some well known and lesser known Mission songs and the occasional cover version. Sing-a-longs guaranteed as well as a promise not to tell the same stories and jokes every night or to play the same set twice. See you there!”
