The Cult

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Just pre-ordered my copy of the new album. £9 including postage for the limited double CD at www.hmv.co.uk. Best price by some way that I've found so far.

I saw them AGES ago and they did nothing for me. When they shortened their name they also should've changed it to The Crap. Plus Ian Astbury looked psycho and seemed jerky I was watching from a short distance him knock and shove his way to their tour bus, some guy cursed him out for it.

After the last Birmingham gig I don't think I'll bother.
It was lacklustre at best.

Never go back. :D

I really only went for t'Mish but stayed for The Cult and lasted two songs. Astbury mumbling through Lil Devil and Rain whilst missing every other line didn't impress me a great deal. It did however make me glad that I didn't bother to stay and watch them a couple of days earlier in Sheffield. All that said,I was actually considering the Rock City gig,because,you know,it's Rock City,but the tickets are thirty quid plus fees,so no thank you.

Tickets are actually £29.50 that's the price if you pay cash at the Rock City box office. If you order them online add an additional £2.95 booking fee PER TICKET on top.

Haha.
That's daylight robbery.
Usually advance tickets are cheaper than on the door.
Oh well. I learnt something today then.

Sloppy seconds on the thread-necro, but yes, Glasgow tickets purchased, accommodation & flight booked), would like to do second night in London too seeing as that's nearest where I live.

Sorry to drag this back up, but I've just been reading one of the Cult message boards, and it touched on why I'm not going to see them on the Electric 13 tour when it gets to London. They turned up downunder in Perth and Brisbane in the past couple of days and only played 70% of Electric (they dropped the last two tracks from the album, Outlaw and Memphis Hip Shake). What?!? Drop a couple of the "Hits" from the last part of the show by all means, but at least play all of the album you're touring!!

Lost it!!

Hom, was that with the Mish in Birmingham?

Yeah...that's how I felt. Being out with long time hardcore travelling Cult friends was good for the catching up...and for being blown away by T'Mish during Deliverance was worth the admission tho
