The “C-U-LaTour” was meant to be Ministry’s farewell tour in support of their final album The Last Sucker that had come out about 7 months before this show. Apparently Uncle Al felt like the band had run its course. You could have fooled me. This two plus hour romp felt more like a band trying to recruit new fans rather than say goodbye to existing ones. I love that every time I have seen Ministry has been in a different city and venue. Since I had not seen them for about five years it was great to finally see “Wrong” live. The three cover songs at the end of the set were a bit of a surprise since Ministry’s own catalog is so deep but it looked like they were having fun. Thanks to the person on the balcony that caught “Under My Thumb” on video for all to enjoy.
