In August, THE CULT will kick off an international tour on which the band will play its seminal, 1985 "Love" album from start to finish.
The "Love" album is viewed by fans and worldwide 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.
"[Playing the album live] gives some context to what THE CULT are, in terms of what we do have a claim to — building this post-modern world," Astbury told Billboard.com. "We're one of the principal architects to that world, in a way. For me, it's kind of like, 'Hey, wait a minute, I don't want my legacy to be 'Sonic Temple'. It's amazing how many people come up and say, 'Hey dude, where's the cowboy hat and long hair?' I haven't looked like that in like 16 years."
"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," stated stated THE CULT manager Tom Vitorino. "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."
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.
