It’s official – 1980s super rockers The Cult are hitting Australia for the first time in 15 years. Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy are in the swing. I’ve been miffed about missing them in New Orleans by a few days a couple of years back when they were touring their latest album, Born Into This. A highlight of my time at The Courier-Mail was getting to do a phone interview with Astbury, so seeing the band – one of my favourites – is going to be a hoot. Tickets are on sale on March 19!
Here’s a clip of classic single She Sells Sanctuary to get you in the mood for the May tour!
One word: W00T!!!! 🙂
way over priced at $115 in adelaide, with lame support
i saw masive attack (much more important act) for $70
I agree the ticket price is a kick in the teeth – most are these days, eh? The first Melbourne gig has sold out with a second one on sale, so I guess there are plenty of punters like me willing to shell out for the bands who’ve made an impact in their lives. Still, I’d probably go to more gigs if they were cheaper!
