Saturday, 16 May 2009

 

 
The Cult announced today the launch of The Cult  - "Love" Live Tour, with confirmed dates in the U.S, Canada, and Europe.

The "LOVE" album is viewed by fans and world-wide media as The Cult's pre-eminent release.
From the immediately recognizable opening notes of "She Sells Sanctuary", through Billy Duffy's psychedelic guitar strains on "Phoenix", to the resolve of Ian Astbury's haunting baritone on "Brother Wolf, Sister Moon", the Cult created an album that maneuvers as a tour de force.

The Cult "LOVE" Live Tour will showcase the band's alternative roots as musicians and performers, and is sure to electrify new fans and devotees.
Performing in diverse venues from the grand scale excitement of London's, Royal Albert Hall, to the thrill of Los Angeles' Nokia Theater, to the intimate setting of Paris' Le Bataclan, the band will fulfill the ultimate dream of Cult lovers across the globe, performing the unimaginable; a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness one of alternative rock's most important records, "LOVE" performed in its entirety, live onstage.


"The band is redefining the live album experience with the "LOVE" Live Tour; nothing is comparable to witnessing The Cult, fully engaged in the live creation of arguably their seminal album. For fans this will be the greatest tour yet, and for those just discovering The Cult, this staging will envelop them in a pure performance experience," stated Cult manager, Tom Vitorino.


The Cult will be delivering spectacular production, along with the intense performances that fans have come to expect.
The evening's finale will include an encore of The Cult's greatest hits, spanning the bands' storied career.
The band has been working closely with their art / design team creating an arresting set, with dramatic effects, using state-of-the art technology.


Fans will be able to enjoy special access tickets in certain tour stops, along with "LOVE" Live exclusive merchandise available at www.thecult.us.
The band also has plans in the pipeline for delivering live select track audio and video streams, downloads, and hi definition video/audio capture for full show releases of select tour stops.
Continuing their historic creative partnership, Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy began writing together this winter, and have since recorded several songs at The Sunset Marquis Villa Recording Studios, in Los Angeles, CA.
Their highly anticipated new tracks will be the follow up to The Cult's 2007 release, the critically acclaimed, "BORN INTO THIS".
As of press time, the band is keeping options open to drop new tracks in conjunction with the tour.

  This is excellent news! I'll definitely be at the Sept. 2nd Chicago show! If my job/money situation gets better I'll try to make the Minneapolis & New York shows, too.

Sounds like it'll be a really cool psychedelic experience. I'll try to get some images and sounds from the show, if I can.
