Rock’n’roll legend Wayne Hussey will be playing 'an intimate solo show' at the Marrs Barr in Worcester on August 29.

Touring in support of his recent autobiography ’Salad Daze’, Wayne will be spinning tales and performing tunes from his days as frontman of The Mission, as gunslinger for The Sisters Of Mercy and Dead Or Alive, and from decades touring the world with The Cure, Gary Numan, Iggy Pop and more.

A spokesman said: " Perhaps best known as the frontman of totemic Goth rock outfit The Mission, Wayne will be embarking on an extensive UK tour in support of his autobiography: ’Salad Daze’, released earlier this year.

"Wayne will be spinning yarns of a legendary life in rock’n’roll, plus performing many of the unforgettable tunes that have soundtracked his illustrious career in music.

"Born in Bristol and raised as a Mormon, Wayne had his epiphany as a young boy watching Marc Bolan and T. Rex on Top Of The Pops. Seeing his destiny in a blinding flash of glitter, mascara and dark curls, he decided he was going to be a rock star too. Later, leaving Bristol to move to Liverpool – home of his beloved Liverpool Football Club and birthplace his favourite band, The Beatles – it wasn’t long before Wayne surrendered to excess and debauchery as he gained international recognition and notoriety as lead singer and principal songwriter in The Mission, after previously being guitarist with The Sisters Of Mercy, and Dead Or Alive."

But why spill the beans with a book?

Wayne said: "With my 60th birthday approaching, it felt like the right time to sit down and recall my life."
