The British rock band will play a sold-out show Saturday night at the House of Blues, and we're giving away tickets.
British rock band The Cult has its roots in the early 1980s and the post-punk Southern Death Cult. When they play a sold out show Saturday night at the House of Blues, they'll be on their "Electric 13 Tour," and will play 1987's Electric album in its entirety, along with songs from thoughout the band's career.
Early reviews from the tour have been positive. The Oakland Press' Gary Graff wrote:
Led by Astbury's booming tenor and random sermonettes — "This is a live rock 'n' roll show. What do you want?!" he noted at one point — and Billy Duffy's fierce guitar attack, the Cult won the night early with its romp through "Electric," delighting an exuberant crowd with seldom-played tracks such as "Aphrodisiac Jacket," "King Contrary Man" and "Outlaw" as well as charging through enduring favorites such as "Love Removal Machine" and "Peace Dog." "Zap City" from the original, abandoned version of the album was restored in the running order in place of the cover of Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild," while "Memphis Hip Shake" was a loose-limbed jam during which Astbury vamped a new set of Detroit-centric lyrics.
