Following a successful US tour with GARY NUMAN, and hot on the heels of the brand new ‘Brightest Light’ MGT remix, Mark was back in action last week – guesting with his old band THE MISSION for 3 songs during the encores at Club Nokia Los Angeles on 10th September.
Mark guested alongside original Mission members Wayne Hussey, Simon HInkler and Craig Adams along with new drummer Mike Kelly on Dylan cover ‘All Along the Watchtower’ (video below), ‘Deliverance’ and ‘Tower of Strength’. This marks the second time MGT has guested with his old band – MGT also guested on the encores at their sold out Brixton Academy UK show in Oct 2011. This appearance was included on the band’s 25th Anniversary ‘Silver’ DVD/BluRay release. MGT also appeared on the 2008 ‘Final Chapter’ live DVD.
Mark also remixed THE MISSION for their new album ‘The Brightest Light’ released in September – stream & download the EXCLUSIVE MGT electro dancefloor remix of ‘The Brightest Light comes from the Darkest Place’ [DOWNLOAD HERE}. For more check out the Slicing Up Eyeballs news article [HERE]
