The Cult Brings "Love" to New Zealand

Legendary rock act, The Cult, will be heading to New Zealand as part of their “Love” Live Tour, with a confirmed date in Auckland on Monday, May 3 at Trusts Stadium Arena.

This will be the first time The Cult has toured New Zealand in 15 years, last performing as part of the Big Day Out in 1995.

The "Love" album is viewed by fans and world-wide media as The Cult’s pre-eminent release. From the immediately recognizable opening notes of She Sells Sanctuary, through Billy Duffy’s psychedelic guitar strains on Phoenix, to the resolve of Ian Astbury’s haunting baritone on Brother Wolf, Sister Moon, The Cult created an album that manoeuvres as a tour de force.

The Cult “Love” Live Tour will showcase the band’s alternative roots as musicians and performers, and is sure to electrify new fans and devotees. Since commencing the tour in mid 2009, the band have performed in diverse venues from the grand scale excitement of London’s Royal Albert Hall, to the intimate setting of Paris’ Le Bataclan, this tour will see the band fulfil the ultimate dream of Cult lovers across the globe, performing the unimaginable; a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness one of alternative rock’s most important records, LOVE, performed in its entirety, live onstage.
