Ministry Performance Videos
One of the most uncompromising, intense, and fearless bands of their generation, Ministry paved the
way for the likes of Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson with their distinctive blend of heavy metal,
industrial dance, and punk rock. Formed by vocalist/guitarist Al Jourgensen in 1981, the group
initially pursued a new wave/synth-pop sound for their 1983 debut album, With Symmetry. But after
parting company with the original line-up, Jourgensen switched to a more aggressive industrial
direction on 1986’s Twitch. A year later, The Blackouts bassist Paul Barker joined as a permanent
member, while in 1988, the group released their first rock-oriented LP, The Land of Rape and Honey,
and Ministry tickets for an accompanying North American tour. The group continued to develop
their pioneering sound on 1989’s The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste, before recording 1990 live
album, In Case You Didn’t Feel Like Showing Up, in front of hundreds of fans with Ministry tickets.
Following a brief hiatus in which both members explored various side-projects including Revolting
Cocks, Lard and 1000 Homo DJs, the group returned with the 1991 MTV hit “Jesus Built My Hotrod,”
and were given second billing on the inaugural Lollapalooza tour. 1992’s Psalm 69: The Way to
Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs increased the demand for Ministry tickets, and although various
drug and legal problems briefly derailed the band’s career, 1996’s doom-laden Filth Pig saw them
score a first US Top 20 entry. Ministry tickets sold out for their subsequent Sphinctour, and after
1999’s Dark Side of the Spoon spawned a Grammy-nominated single in the shape of “Bad Blood,”
the group appeared in Steven Spielberg’s A.I., and released hits compilation Greatest Fits. Ministry
tickets were then snapped up for the 2003 Fornicatour promoting eighth studio effort,
Animositisomina, before Barker left to spend more time with his family. Following the release of
their most politically-charged record, 2004’s Houses of the Mole, the band celebrated their 25th
anniversary with 2006’s Rio Grande Blood and later added to their catalog with 2007’s The Last
Sucker. In 2008, Ministry tickets went on sale for a farewell C-U-LaTour which was accompanied by
2009 live album, Adios… Puta Madres. But the hiatus didn’t last long, and in 2011, Ministry tickets
went on sale for a comeback set at Germany’s Wacken Open Air Festival. 2012’s Relapse was then
followed by 2013’s From Beer To Eternity and the release of Ministry tickets for a North American
