The Cult have announced Electric 13, a worldwide tour that will visit ten UK cities this October.
“The Cult’s life-blood has always been playing live, we are between albums and decided to continue the momentum created by ‘Choice Of Weapon’, stay in people’s hearts and minds. As ‘Love Live’ was such an incredible experience we have decided that performing the ‘Electric’ album, an event that has been demanded by our fans and followers as the perfect live set to play in 2013.” says Ian Astbury.
In 1987, The Cult released ‘Electric’, an album of stylistic change that aimed the band straight at the heart of the rock market. Recorded in New York City at the legendary Electric Ladyland studios and filled with the energy of the dirty NYC streets, together with a young producer named Rick Rubin, who resonated more with the hip-hop world of The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, and Public Enemy; the band delivered an recording that has gone on to become one of The Cult’s most successful and influential albums.
The Cult will perform ‘Electric’, raw and unfiltered on tour in 2013, an event branded as Electric 13. This will be a hot ticket as The Cult have never performed the album in its entirety. The live show will also include a second set pulling from the band’s eight other studio albums.
Tickets will be available from 9am on Friday May 17th via www.kililive.com and www.seetickets.com.
