The Cult to perform 1985’s ‘Love’ on upcoming world tour

The Cult

Keeping in tune with the latest in concert fads, longtime UK rockers The Cult will perform their classic 1985 breakthrough Love in its entirety on a just-announced late-summer/fall trek aptly dubbed the Love Live World Tour.

The band —Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, plus assorted sidemen —promises a main set featuring the full album, including fan favorites/hits “She Sells Sanctuary,” “Rain” and “Revolution,” plus an encore of “The Cult’s greatest hits, spanning the band’s storied career.”

The 30-date tour opens Aug. 19 in San Diego and runs through the U.S., Canada and Europe before wrapping Oct. 11 in Holland (see full dates below).

The band also announced that Astbury and Duffy began writing songs for a new album last winter, and have recorded several songs in Los Angeles for their planned follow-up to 2007’s Born Into This.
