Concert attendees can expect the same recipe of hard-alternative, heavy-metal and gothic-punk rock the British band has been creating since the release of its first album, “Dreamtime,” in 1984. The Cult’s epic journey through personal tragedies helped the band create music that reaches deep within the soul. Lead singer and founding band member, Ian Astbury, began his career following anarchist punk bands in Liverpool, living in squats and forming musical synapsis that
would later lead to the creation of the early Cult hits such as “She Sells Sanctuary” and “Fire Woman” that will charge up fans with their electric live Sturgis Buffalo Chip music and motorcycle festival performance. Guitarist and founding band member, Billy Duffy, was heavily influenced by Manchester’s ‘80s punk rock movement. By the time The Cult released its third album, “Electric” Duffy was leading the band into a metal-blues sound. The eclectic beginnings of these two songwriters gelled and quickly garnered a dedicated following for the band.
