The Cult may hail from the United Kingdom, but this British hard rock band has always had a huge fan following in the United States, as well. The Cult first formed in 1983 and gained popularity through their hit songs "Fire Woman," "Edie (Ciao Baby)," "Sun King," "Sweet Soul Sister" and "Love Removal Machine." The band's 1989 studio album Sonic Temple reached platinum status in both the United States and Canada, as it peaked at No. 10 on Billboard's Top 200 Album charts.
The band's most recent album release, Choice of Weapon, came out in 2012. The Cult is also supposed to have another new album coming out sometime in 2015, which is going to be more "guitar heavy," according to the band's guitarist Billy Duffy. The current band member line-up of The Cult includes lead vocalist and percussionist Ian Astbury, guitarist Billy Duffy, bassist Chris Wyse and drummer John Tempesta.
The opening band for the "Left Coast" tour is Primal Scream, a Scottish rock band that first formed in 1982. Their current band member line-up includes lead vocalist and percussionist Bobby Gillespie, guitarist and backing vocalist Andrew Innes, keyboardist Martin Duffy and drummer Darrin Mooney. Primal Scream released their latest studio album More Light, which was their tenth, in May 2013. It received favorable ratings from AllMusic and Consequence of Sound, which gave it between 4 and 5 stars, respectively. It also received 77 out of 100 from Metacritic, based on approximately 30 reviews. More Light's most popular single (and also the first one released for the album) was its 13th track titled "It's Alright, It's OK."
