Front 242 announce final live shows
Feb 2024 25

Yesterday, on the International EBM day (24-2), Front 242 announced their final live shows. Read their message below.

“Today, we reach out to you, our fans, with a heavy yet hopeful heart to share the news of our final concerts. Now, we are preparing to bring down the curtain on our live performances as FRONT 242, we find ourselves navigating a sea of emotions.

For nearly four decades, we’ve journeyed together, creating unforgettable moments and sharing the profound joy of music. You’ve been more than an audience; you’ve been a part of our extended family, witnessing our evolution and sharing in our highs and lows.

The decision to step back from performing live has not been easy, but we believe it’s important to end this chapter on a high note, preserving the essence of Front 242 that you’ve grown to love. We want to leave you with memories of our band at its peak, full of energy and passion.

So, we are extending our invitation to you: join us for one last adventure. Let’s make these final shows a celebration of the incredible journey we’ve shared. We promise to deliver performances that capture the heart and soul of Front 242, a fitting farewell to a story we’ve written together.”

Front 242 will tour Europe and North America extensively between August, 2024 and January, 2025. Don’t miss it – their new live show is awesome. Please note that they only talk about stop performing live. There’s still no word on a new release; an EP would be logical since they play new songs live, but on the other hand they have chosen to not release new music for years and years.

We just noticed Skinny Puppy end their career and Ministry has announced their final album.
