THE CULT Announce Australian Tour

Share This:

THE CULT, one of the most influential bands of all time, has announced  their “8424” Australian Tour celebrating the band’s 40th anniversary. The shows will see  the band perform songs spanning their 11-album discography and commemorate  four decades of a groundbreaking catalogue of songs. 

THE CULT’s “8424” Tour kicks off at Melbourne’s The Forum, Melbourne on 23rd November then heads to Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall on 25th November, Sydney’s  Opera House on 26th November, Adelaide’s Hindley Street Music Hall on 28th November and concludes at Perth’s Metro City on Saturday 30th November. Tickets  on sale at 10.00am (local time) on Monday 8th July. 

THE CULT holds a significant place in musical history due to its pioneering use of post punk, hard rock, and experimentalism, pushing boundaries and influencing countless  bands across multiple genres. With their musical prowess, uncompromising attitude  and captivating stage presence, they forged a distinct identity while charting new  territory for bands to explore. From Duffy‘s formative, and influential years in the  Manchester underground, to Astbury‘s innovative cultural festival “Gathering Of The Tribes”, the duo has left an indelible mark on modern music, shaping its trajectory in  profound ways.

The legendary British rockers have broken barriers thanks to their innovative sound  experiments. They have sold millions of albums worldwide and quickly ascended  through the ranks of the indie music world to achieve global status. They have an  arsenal of hits including She Sells Sanctuary, Love Removal Machine, Fire Woman and  Rain. 

THE CULT – founding singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, with drummer John  Tempesta and bassist Charlie Jones (Goldfrapp, Page and Plant) – are preparing to  tour Europe and they’re at the peak of their powers.
