The Cult to announce ‘Electric 13’ tour on Monday as some U.S., U.K. dates emerge

The Cult

The Cult have been teasing fans the last couple days via social media that they will announce a new tour called “Electric 13” on Monday — a trek that presumably will find Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy revisiting their 1987 hard-rock turn Electric each night. While details remain under wraps, it appears the tour will hit the U.S. in August and the U.K. in October.

It seems jumped the gun and posted the tour’s U.K. dates; that post has since been removed, but the dates are below. Also, in the U.S., tickets already have gone on sale for one of the “Electric 13” shows: an Aug. 16 date at Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, Miss. The band’s also playing a previously announced Aug. 3 show at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.

In 2009, The Cult performed its 1985 album Love on tour to coincide with an expanded reissue of that album. No word yet whether Electric will receive a similar treatment.

We’ll post full dates as they’re confirmed.

  1. Buffalo Chip, Sturgis is South Dakota not North

  2. This makes me bummed out that I missed their “Love” tour a couple of years ago. That album was excellent! But “Electric” stunk.

  3. I’m in! I’ve seen them 5 times in the last 12 years and every show has been great. Last year’s Choice of Weapon tour may have been the best yet.

  4. That 80's Guy

    Add the Celebrity Theater, Phoenix, AZ on 9/5. They already have a poster up I saw when I was there the other night. So the west coast dates will likely bleed into Sept

  5. Money Mike

    Really? Celebrity theater? Sweet! I saw them there wars ago. I’m going!

  6. Hoosier in Phoenix

    A Phoenix date would be awesome!!
