The Cult UK Tour – Add New London Date at Roundhouse, Camden to The 8424 Tour

The Cult announced The 8424 Tour last week, commemorating 40 years as a band, with shows spanning the UK and Europe.  Today, they have announced an extra London date at the iconic Roundhouse in Camden Town.

The date at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall is already sold out, as is Edinburgh’s Usher Hall. 

The 40th anniversary trek sees The Cult perform songs spanning their 11-album discography.

The Cult hold a significant place in musical history due to their 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 Billy Duffy’s formative, and influential, years in the Manchester underground, to Ian Astbury’s groundbreaking Gathering of the Tribes, the duo has left an indelible mark on modern music, shaping its trajectory in profound ways.

In 2024, The Cult will embark on a UK tour in the autumn, starting in Leicester on 21 October. It will include stops in major cities such as Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, and London, with London shows at the Royal Albert Hall and now Camden’s Roundhouse

About The Cult

The Cult formed in 1984 England, with the seminal post-punk band going on to sell millions of albums with numerous international and U.S. gold and platinum certifications. Ian Astbury (vocals) and Billy Duffy (guitar) have released 11 studio albums over The Cult’s career. The band, dubbed “Shamanic goths”, found international renown with the 1985 album, Love, which featured the enduring rock anthem ‘She Sells Sanctuary’, as well as the oft-heard follow-up single, ‘Rain’. Electric arrived in 1989, with journalists saying the collection of songs (particularly ‘Love Removal Machine’, ‘Wild Flower’ and ‘Lil’ Devil’) “swaggers, crunches and howls.” Most recently, The Cult released Under the Midnight Sun. A review of the eight-song album succinctly said “rock’s unquenchable melodramatists have the fire in their eyes still.” In late 2023, Astbury and Duffy reformed Death Cult for a series of live performances including a sole U.S. date at The Theatre at The Ace Hotel and a limited run of U.K. dates including back-to-back sold out shows at the Brixton Electric. Over the early months of 2024, the band has performed on The Howard Stern Show and begun a series of vinyl reissues of their full slate of critically-acclaimed albums.
