Ministry to play Ogden Theatre next summer

Although Al Jourgensen has said he'd never tour with Ministry again, the frontman reunited the group after a health scare last year and plans to record a new album, Relapse, before the end of the year. Ministry hits the Ogden Theatre on Sunday, June 17, as part of a five-date Relapse tour that includes Los Angeles, New York and two shows in Chicago, which will be the only U.S. dates in 2012. The band is also slated to perform a date in Europe in July. Tickets ($69.69-$110) go on sale Friday, September 23.
