Death Cult

Death Cult

The Cult have revived their early incarnation Death Cult for a very special headline UK & Ireland tour in November 2023.

Vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy formed Death Cult in Bradford in 1983 as a spin-off from Astbury’s former gothic rock band Southern Death Cult.

Ahead of a coveted appearance on live music show The Tube in January 1984, the band tweaked their moniker to The Cult and it has stayed the same for the past four decades.

Death Cult will headline a one-off 12-date tour across the UK and Ireland throughout November 2023, including many venues where they made their live debut as a band.

Opening at Belfast Telegraph on Monday 6th November, the tour visits Dublin, Sheffield, Liverpool, Glasgow, Nottingham, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Norwich and Manchester before culminating with two nights at London Brixton Electric on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st November.

The evening, while centred around Death Cult and their eponymous EPs, will boast a setlist that spans the three phases of the band, from Southern Death Cult, to Death Cult, and The Cult’s first two albums: ‘Dreamtime’ (1984) and ‘Love’ (1985).

Tickets are on sale now.
