THE CULT ANNOUNCE ADDITIONAL “SONIC TEMPLE” NORTH AMERICAN DECEMBER DATES
As previously reported, in recognition of the reissue of The Cult‘s multi-platinum-selling Sonic Temple album, the band has announced the Sonic Temple Tour. Additional U.S. dates for the tour have been scheduled.
The new dates in December follow the band’s U.K. dates and support the September 13th release of The Cult: Sonic Temple 30 by Beggars Arkive.
The band Spirit Animal will join The Cult for all the December shows. Tickets for the shows go on sale September 27th at 10:00 a.m.
Setlists for the shows will draw from The Cult’s 10 studio albums with the centerpiece being a super set that’s focused on the core songs from Sonic Temple, a pivotal album that brought together the alternative and hard rock audiences; some of these songs have not been performed since the album (their fourth) was originally released in 1989. Produced by the legendary Bob Rock, Sonic Temple had four chart-topping singles: Fire Woman, Edie (Ciao Baby), Sun King and Sweet Soul Sister. Sonic Temple proved to be an important moment for both the band and the wider rock scene.
