Review from David Gatlin

The Cult concert was great! However, Ian Ashbury couldn't hit the notes or sing all the words/lyrics (guessing he's tired after 32 performances on this tour...) Nonetheless, it was great to see the band (minus Matt Sorem) back together. :)

Review from Leo

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

Review from Kim Y.

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.
