The Cult To Play Special Sonic Temple 30th Anniversary Show
The Cult will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its classic 1989 album Sonic Temple on June 15th at the Greek Theater with a bill that is based loosely on singer Ian Astbury's pre-Lollapalooza 1990 "A Gathering Of The Tribes" festival. The band will be joined by support acts Prayers, Zola Jesus and Vowws.
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday (April 5th) at 10:00 a.m. PT. As with other shows on their May and June 2019 tour encompassing the U.S., U.K. and Canada, the British group will perform a show that's focused on the core songs from Sonic Temple, some of which have not been performed since the album was originally released.
Sonic Temple, an LP that brought together alternative and hard rock audiences, will be reissued in a 30th anniversary edition by Beggars Banquet Records later this year. The disc features the singles "Fire Woman," "Edie (Ciao Baby)," "Sweet Soul Sister" and "Sun King."
The Cult is still led by Ian Astbury on lead vocals and Billy Duffy on lead guitar. The band's last album, Hidden City, came out in 2016.
