Mission UK, Gene Loves Jezebel, Mike Peters To Get "Resurrected"

If you thought that nostalgia tours were confined to the summer amphitheater circuit, think again. Starting in October, three artists from the '80s college radio scene -- the Mission UK, Gene Loves Gezebel and former Alarm leader Mike Peters -- will be hitting clubs across the country for what's being dubbed "The Resurrection Tour."

The tour will coincide with the release of the Mission UK's upcoming album, "Resurrection: The Greatest Hits"; however, fans should be warned that the album does not include the original versions of "Deliverance," "Wasteland," "Butterfly On A Wheel," or any of their other Mission UK faves. Mission frontman Wayne Hussey "updated" (read: re-recorded) the band's most popular songs for the album.

The Mission UK aren't the only act on the tour plugging new product: Gene Loves Gezebel will be supporting their recently released "VII," while Mike Peters will be performing songs from his most recent solo album, "Rise"; Peters also plans to perform

songs from the Alarm's catalog. (A further note for '80s college rock fans: Billy Duffy of the Cult plays guitar and co-wrote many of the songs on "Rise.")
