Press Release – 20.10. 2011

21 years since they split up after a fight in a phone box, Leeds stars of the 1980/90’s indie scene, SALVATION, will be returning for one night only, to the Leeds O2 Academy stage, as special guests of those giants of Brit- Rock The Mission.

The Wonderstuff will also be getting down for the biggest party since 1999

On 1st March 1990, at 8.00pm, after supporting The Mission at Leeds Polytechnic; rising Leeds Pop Rock band Salvation made a mad dash to Manchester to perform their own show later that evening at the Boardwalk.

Despite great reviews for their soon to be debut album, the punchy, melody laden Sass which emerged in June of that year, this punishing touring schedule pushed personal relations to a flashpoint and the band had imploded by August of that year.

FAST FORWARD 21 YEARS Salvation are back and there is a very strong sense of déjà vu…

Salvation Rehearsal 2011

On Friday 28th October 2011 Salvation will be opening up for The Mission at the O2 Academy in Leeds.

The show itself is a celebration of The Mission’s 25th Anniversary and features three quarters of their original line up Wayne Hussey, Simon Hinkler and Craig Adams.

With tickets flying out and The Wonderstuff weighing in as main support, it all promises to be a night that won’t be forgotten in a hurry.

Four original Members of the Salvation line up from March 1990 will take the stage on 28th October

Daniel Mass – Vocals
Benoit Farvak – Guitar
Adam Clarkson – Bass
George Schulz – Drums

Paul Lavender, a Driffield lad, will be deputising on second Guitar.

Mass says “The reaction from old fans who have been contacting us, letting us know they are coming, has been stunning, we can’t wait to hit the stage”

Schulz wryly remarked “I feel like I’m 25 again, but I suppose I’d better not act like it, else I won’t get through the show!”

One reply on “Press Release – 20.10. 2011”

Regrettably I did not hear about the concerts in time – London was sold out and can’t make it to tonight. I saw the photos including the most recent and it made me go and dig out the six albums I still have. I see a few of my older photos are on the site, which is really flattering.
Is the gig scheduled for December still likely to go ahead? If so I will try and get to that. I hope tonight is hugely enjoyable and successful – I’ll be raising a glass in absentia xx
