The Culthave announced “ELECTRIC 13”, a worldwide tour that will visit ten UK cities this October.
In 1987, The Cult released “Electric”, an album of stylistic change that aimed the band straight at the heart of the rock market. Recorded in New York City at the legendary Electric Ladyland studios and filled with the energy of the dirty NYC streets, together with a young producer named Rick Rubin, who resonated more with the hip hop world of The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, and Public Enemy; the band delivered an recording that has gone on to become one of The Cult’s most successful and influential albums, and as a follow up to "Love ", kicked the door wide open to a passionate new audience.
“Electric” went on to become the band’s first Platinum album. They quickly captured media attention featuring heavily in music and fashion magazines as well as becoming an MTV staple after dark and where spun heavily on radio coast to coast. Electric was supported by an incident filled world tour with Guns N’ Roses as the opener in North American. Beginning in January of that year, The Cult headlined in the U.K., Europe, the U.S., Canada, and Australia, opened select dates for Iggy Pop and David Bowie, returning at the end of the year to sell out Wembley Arena and Brixton Academy in London.
The Cult will perform “ELECTRIC”, raw and unfiltered on tour in 2013, an event branded as ELECTRIC 13. This will be a hot ticket as The Cult have never performed the album in its entirety. The live show will also include a second set pulling from the band’s eight other studio albums.

This was my first gig in about 15 years. It was great. The warm up
Masters of Reality were good although I had never heard of them. I liked
the lively songs but the slow ones were a bit boring. It seemed forever
before the Cult came on. Why cant venues play some good music
whilst you wait for the band to get ready? The Cult were worth waiting
for although it was over too quickly then. The music was great and Ians
singing was great too. I wanted to go to the front but I bottled it and
stayed at the back where we had a great view.

Fantastic gig from Bob, 01/02/11
Awesome night, the band was on form, Ian is totally hypnotic with his vocals, great end to the gig with a classic Doors track.

Awesome! from wendj, 01/02/11
Great support acts from Romance and Master of Reality althought their acoustics set-up was a bit unkind to the vocals. The Cult played a good set with Astbury up and down on the vocals (dont know if he just forgot a lot of the words!) Duffy and the guys were on top form and rocked their way through Every Man and Woman is a Star throught to Spiritwalker, Sanctuary, Wildflower, Rain and Love Removal Machine to name the most memorable moments of the evening. The crowd were bouncing aound and filling in the words that Astbury missed, cbad or forgot! Strange interlude half way through the set watching a home video of Red Indians and out of focus flowers in the desert - bit self indulgent of Astbury and maybe too arty farty and went over my head. Lost the crowd a bit here but soon got everyone revved up enough to stomp and loudly demand an encore. Venue is great and nicely intimate to see the whites of Astburys eyes - once he took off his aviators!! Edie was conspicuous in her absence! :-( but a stonking good time and oh to be 17 again.....
