The Mission (UK) + Chameleons + Theatre of Hate “Deja Vu Tour 2023” – NEW DATE – 9/10/23
Heroes Live Entertainment presents The Mission (UK) + Chameleons + Theatre of Hate “Deja Vu Tour 2023” @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach. This is The Mission UK’s first Florida show in 24 years!
The tour is being postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Original tickets will be honored on the new date.
British Post-Punk legends The Mission (UK), Chameleons, and Theatre of Hate will embark on the Deja Vu Tour that will hit North American cities in the fall of 2023.
The Mission (UK) will be making its return to the States for the first time in nearly a decade. Wayne Hussey, one of the architects of Goth and Post-Punk, emerged from playing guitar in The Sisters of Mercy to form The Mission in 1986 along with Craig Adams and Simon Hinkler. They have enhanced their reputation as one of the best and most exciting live bands in the world winning countless accolades and inspiring both lurid media stories and a fanatical following.
Chameleons original members Mark Burgess and Reg Smithies will reunite for the first time in many moons. The Manchester post-punk legends have an endearing and untarnished legacy having released many classic albums that warm the dark hearts of fans globally. Their debut album, Script of the Bridge, set the tone and remains an essential album to this day.
Theatre of Hate will be returning to North America after successful tours in previous years. Led by singer/songwriter, Kirk Brandon, Theatre of Hate released their iconic debut studio album, Westworld, which was produced by Mick Jones of The Clash and entered the Top 20 charts in the UK. Known for being one of the era’s best live acts, Theatre of Hate has continued building upon that legacy.
Clan Of Xymox – NEW DATE – 3/17/23
Heroes Live Entertainment presents Clan Of Xymox w/The Bellwether Syndicate & Astari Nite @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.
*Original tickets will be honored.
Dutch darkwave pioneers Clan Of Xymox will perform their first South Florida show since 1991 at Respectable Street in West Palm Beach. Clan of Xymox with special guests The Bellwether Syndicate – William Faith (of Faith and the Muse) and Sarah Rose (aka DJ Scary Lady Sarah), Astari Nite and Jolt Radio’s Shadowplay DJs.
Since their formation in their native Holland, Clan of Xymox has been constantly changing, always challenging and often quite breathtaking. Formed in 80’s Amsterdam and signed to leading English independent label 4AD, home at one time to the Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, and Pixies among others. The 4AD period saw the release of the band’s self-titled debut album and the second album Medusa. Those two records were full of tumbling electro beats, throbbing sequencers and moody vocals.
Clan of Xymox became one of the pioneers of the dark and moody electronic music that later became known as darkwave. Later they got signed to a subsidiary of Polygram USA. Their releases as solely Xymox were in a more synthpop/dance music vein. This period was known as their most commercial one, having dance chart hits in the USA.
In 1997, Ronny Moorings made the decision to restart Clan of Xymox and return to his musical roots in the Gothic electro scene. Since then, the band signed to USA based Metropolis Records, releasing a series of critically acclaimed albums.
The band has released 15 studio albums, 2 DVD’s, a remix and live album, “Best Of” and even a covers album. In 2017, “Days Of Black“ was released worldwide. It remains faithful to its roots and new-wave basis, but progressively evolved towards more melodic and harmonious songs.
Clan of Xymox have done what many similar bands fail consistently to do. They’ve upped their game, shaken things around, plunged back into the darkness and come up with something sounding fresh, original, and exciting. To the great enthusiasm of their fans, the band still tours with great energy worldwide on a constant basis. Current line-up consists of: Ronny Moorings, Mojca, Mario, Sean and Daniel.
The Bellwether Syndicate
Fronted by veteran artist William Faith (of Faith and the Muse) and Sarah Rose (aka DJ Scary Lady Sarah), The Bellwether Syndicate are, as illustrated by their debut, coloring outside of prescribed genre lines, choosing here to push the boundaries of style and substance into something relevant and vital.
While the music is written and recorded by William and Sarah, the live show features collaborators Philly Peroxide (keyboards/percussion), Paul Sin (bass) and Faith’s long-time drummer Stevyn Grey. The Bellwether Syndicate present a powerful and commanding live performance, where the sound and substance of the recorded work truly comes to life; where the art is made whole by the audience — and this is a band that knows how to connect with its audience: not a typical fan base, but an engaged and invested network of family and familiars spanning the globe.
Astari Nite crosses an obscure mix between gothic rock and post-punk, exploring themes of death, love and the occult.
Having performed alongside acts such as Peter Murphy, The Damned, Psychedelic Furs, She Wants Revenge, Cold Cave, Assemblage 23, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Modern English and She Past Away, they have established themselves as contemporaries of the GOTHIC ROCK scene.
Astari Nite has released two brand new singles so far in 2021 titled All Else is a Curse and Pocket Full of Posies and can be heard at https://astarinitengp.bandcamp.com

Peter Murphy: 40 Years Of Bauhaus – 2/6/19
Heroes Live Entertainment presents Peter Murphy: 40 Years Of Bauhaus,
Ruby Celebration featuring David J, Performing “In The Flat Field” in its entirety plus extended encore of Bauhaus classics @ The Ground at Club Space in Miami. Support: UK psych-rock band Desert Mountain Tribe
& New Orleans performing artist Vinsantos
Originally formed in England in 1978, pioneering post-punk band Bauhaus carved out a singular musical niche combining minimalism, art school rock and dark glam, with a huge dose of their own experimentalism, originality and verve. Unswervingly bleak in their approach, they released their break-out hit “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” in 1979, an astonishing slice of brooding imagination.
They were signed to 4AD and released their debut album In The Flat Field in 1980, before moving on to release three further records via Beggars Banquet (Mask – 1981, The Sky’s Gone Out – 1982 and Burning From The Inside – 1983).
Although brief, their career was hugely influential and resonated across the decades. The band split in the early 1980s (but reformed briefly a few times throughout the years) and band members went on to focus on other projects. Peter Murphy continues to enjoy a successful solo career, spectacularly celebrated with the recently released 5-CD box containing his Beggars Banquet releases.
The forthcoming tour celebrates 40 years since the formation of Bauhaus – featuring two original members, vocalist Peter Murphy and bassist David J.
