The Keyshia Cole event was great! Purchasing my tickets through Goldstar made the experience even better. When I went to the Will Call to pick up my tickets, Gold Star had included the options for there members to choose "standing room only" or "seats", of course I chose the seats. I appreciate the option to choose The Seats. When my songs came on, I would stand up. It was great and it helped my experience to be that much more enjoyable. Thanks Goldstar!

The band still sounds amazing! On the flip side, they weren't very enthusiastic about their old stuff. Note to the band: YOUR FANS COME TO THESE SHOWS FOR WHAT YOU DID IN THE PAST!!! Oh, btw, the new album is actually VERY good. If you're a new...continued

These tickets were purchased as a gift for a friend, so I wasn't there. However, apparently they very much enjoyed the show!

The Cult are an excellent band and were in rare form last night, as expected. Loads-o-hits! Goldstar always makes the transaction seamless.

Description

In the mid-1980s, the Cult was one of England’s leading heavy metal revivalists, a hard rock band with slight psychedelic flourishes, influenced primarily by the Native American mysticism of The Doors and the hard guitar rock of Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. The band also touched upon post-punk goth rock, a relatively new style at the time.

The group first hit big in Britain with the songs "She Sells Sanctuary,” "Rain” and “Revolution” and in the late 1980s, they broke into the American heavy metal market with the song, "Love Removal Machine.”  Sonic Temple (1989) is the band’s most commercially successful album to date. The hit single “Fire Woman” helped propel the album into the American Top Ten.  

The Cult have split up, reformed and gone through several line-up changes throughout the past two decades.  In 2006, the band reunited again to perform festival and headline dates and supported The Who on their European tour this past summer.  The band is currently comprised of Ian Astbury (vocals), Billy Duffy (guitar), John Tempesta (drums) and Chris Wyse (bass).  Their latest, Born Into This, was released on October 2, 2007 and is their eighth full-length album.
