Enthusiastic fans packed Rams Head Live! in Baltimore Wednesday night, eager to catch The Cult as the band hits the road for their Spring 2017 tour. Ian Astbury, Billy Duffy (click here for Billy Duffy interview) and band were on fire that night and absolutely tore it up, thrilling everyone with a phenomenal show. The Cult is on tour in support of their recent album Hidden City. Most dates are already sold-out however, some VIP packages are still available for certain dates.
Cult fans are some of the most loyal, knowledgeable fans in the music industry and there was much debate amongst them before the concert began as to what songs needed to be included in the set that night. After the show, the consensus was Ian and Billy chose well when putting the set list together. People were particularly pleased to hear “Gone” and “Phoenix” as it has been a while since The Cult has played them live.
In addition to GA tickets, there are three special VIP options available for this tour. The Black Label VIP is the premiere package and includes a personal, face-to-face meeting with Ian and Billy in The Cult Sanctuary backstage, early entry for GA or seats within the first two rows depending on the venue, a commemorative photo with The Cult, a tambourine autographed by Ian Astbury and an autographed Billy Duffy collectible guitar pick tin, an autographed poster as well as some exclusive Cult merchandise. Black Label VIP purchasers will be entered into a lottery to win the Blood Gretsch Guitar with a blood splatter finish, which is played by Billy Duffy in The Cult's video for the hit song “Hinterland.” One winner for this highly collectible guitar will be selected May 31, 2018.
