Ministry closed out the US leg of their “from Beer to Eternatour” in Las Vegas on Wednesday night.
With an 18-song set list spanning over 25 years of music, Ministry appealed to both newer and die-hard fans from years ago with this performance. “Uncle Al” Jourgensen started the show wearing a gas mask and waving a cane with fury at the audience, while a projected barrage of images flashed behind the band for an audio-visual overload of pure industrial madness.
Mixed with the personal political views that Jourgensen wroteÂ into the lyrics. Crowd favorites from the set were “N.W.O.,” “Just One Fix,” “Thieves,” and “So What,” all in succession before the Encore which had “Uncle Al” coming out to the crowd and shaking hands with as many people as he could before the show would end.
