LOCATION: Garden Amphitheater Orange County
Restless Nites Presents is proud to host British Post-Punk legends The Mission (UK), Chameleons, and Theatre of Hate in Los Angeles as a part of their full 31 date US tour.
The Mission (UK) will be making their return to the States for the first time in nearly a decade. Wayne Hussey, one of the architects of Goth and Post-Punk, emerged from playing guitar in The Sisters of Mercy to form The Mission in 1986 along with Craig Adams and Simon Hinkler. They have enhanced their reputation as one of the best and most exciting live bands in the world winning countless accolades, and inspiring both lurid media stories and a fanatical following.
Chameleons original members Mark Burgess and Reg Smithies will reunite for the first time in many moons. The Manchester post-punk legends have an endearing and untarnished legacy having released many classic albums that warm the dark hearts of fans globally. Their debut album, Script of the Bridge, set the tone and remains an essential album to this day.
Theatre of Hate will be returning to North America after successful tours in previous years. Led by singer/songwriter, Kirk Brandon, Theatre of Hate released their iconic debut studio album, Westworld, which was produced by Mick Jones of The Clash and entered the Top 20 charts in the UK. Known for being one of the era’s best live acts, Theatre of Hate have continued building upon that legacy.
