Perhaps best known as the frontman of totemic goth rock outfit The Mission, Wayne will be embarking on an extensive UK tour in support of his autobiography: ’Salad Daze’, released earlier this year. 

The 16 date run will see Wayne spinning yarns of a legendary life in rock’n’roll, plus performing many of the unforgettable tunes that have soundtracked his illustrious career in music. Salad Daze chronicles Wayne’s life from childhood up to The Mission and everything in between. Offering a confessional, engaging and explicit account of a life in the eye of rock’s storm, Salad Daze sees Wayne recount his incredible journey with wit, warmth, humour and laugh-out-loud moments.

I’d recorded seven albums in eight years, and by the time we’d finished the last Mission album in 2016 I felt creatively exhausted and needed to do something else for a while. I’d been approached about writing an autobiography but always felt I’d rather make music than write a book. With my 60th birthday fast approaching it just felt like the right time to sit down and recall my life. It’s a strange thing, writing about yourself. There’s a certain conceit involved, that your life warrants recording and might be of interest to someone else, and it took me a while to come to terms with that premise. But once I did I thoroughly enjoyed the process.
