The Cult will continue to maintain a brisk road schedule in 2016. The veteran British rockers have added nearly a dozen new U.S. dates spread throughout the late summer and early fall.
The reunited multi-platinum sellers made the announcement on July 21 via their official Twitter account. The new dates come on the heels of their recently announced U.S. stadium shows this month in support of Guns N' Roses. The Cult began touring earlier this month in support of their 10th studio album Hidden City, which hit shelves in multiple formats on Feb. 5 via Cooking Vinyl.
The new dates will include a combination of festivals and headline appearances, beginning Aug. 2 in San Antonio, Texas, at Aztec Theater. Ian Ashtbury and company's second leg will include appearances at Rock Allegiance Festival, Houston Open Air and Louder Than Life Festival, as well as major stops in Denver, Salt Lake City and Memphis, Tennessee, before wrapping up Oct. 8 in Primm, Nevada, at Star of the Desert Arena.
Presales for select dates begin Thurs., July 21 at 10:00 a.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Fri., July 22 at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more information, click here.
The Cults' current line up includes founding member Ashtbury along with classic era guitarist Billy Duffy, as well as Grant Fitzpatrick (bass), John Tempesta (drums) and Damon Fox (keyboards, rhythm guitar). Fans can expect a setlist packed with hits, beloved album tracks and songs from their new album.
Produced by veteran Canadian producer Bob Rock (Bon Jovi, Metallica Aerosmith), Hidden City is available in a variety in CD, digital and vinyl formats. For more information, click here.
The Cult wrapped their first North America leg of their Alive In The Hidden City Tour on April 16 in Miami Beach, Florida. The "Fire Woman" hitmakers will perform four huge shows with Gun N' Roses beginning July 27 at Atlanta's Georgia Dome and wrapping up Aug. 3 in Arlington, Texas, at AT&T Stadium.
The band will then take a couple of well deserved weeks off before launching the second U.S. leg in mid-September. Tickets for select events are available at AXS.
