The Cult Celebrates 40th Anniversary with Epic Tour: U.S. Dates Announced for September

The Cult is set to celebrate their 40th anniversary with a highly anticipated tour, kicking off in July with European dates before heading to Canada and then back to the U.K. Fans in the Western U.S. will get an early taste of the soon-to-be-announced 2025 U.S. tour with a series of select dates in September. The tour includes stops at the Elsinore Theatre in Salem, OR, Muckleshoot Indian Casino in Auburn, WA, and Redding Civic Auditorium in Redding, CA. Other venues include Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles, CA, Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, CA, Yaamava Theater in Highland, CA, and The Event Center at Harrah’s Resort SoCal in Valley Center, CA. Tickets for these U.S. and Canadian dates go on sale this Friday at 10 am local time, with more details available on The Cult’s official website.

The Cult has left an indelible mark on music history, renowned for their pioneering blend of post-punk, hard rock, and experimental sounds. Their innovative approach has influenced countless bands across multiple genres. Billy Duffy’s formative years in the Manchester underground and Ian Astbury’s groundbreaking Gathering of the Tribes have significantly shaped modern music. Their unique style and powerful stage presence have set them apart, creating a legacy that continues to inspire and captivate audiences worldwide.

Formed in England in 1984, The Cult quickly rose to international fame, selling millions of albums and earning numerous gold and platinum certifications. Ian Astbury (vocals) and Billy Duffy (guitar) have released 11 studio albums throughout their career. The band achieved global recognition with their 1985 album, Love, featuring the enduring rock anthem “She Sells Sanctuary” and the follow-up hit “Rain.” Their 1989 album, Electric, further solidified their status, with songs like “Love Removal Machine,” “Wild Flower,” and “Lil’ Devil” being praised for their swagger and intensity. Their most recent album, Under the Midnight Sun, has been lauded for its unrelenting passion and musical brilliance.

In late 2023, Astbury and Duffy revived Death Cult for a series of live performances, including a notable U.S. show at The Theatre at The Ace Hotel and sold-out dates in the U.K. at Brixton Electric. Throughout early 2024, The Cult has continued to make waves with performances on The Howard Stern Show and a series of vinyl reissues of their critically acclaimed albums. As they embark on this milestone tour, The Cult remains a formidable force in the music world, continually evolving while staying true to their roots.
