Switch of venue for Cult concert

The Cult
The Cult

THEY might just have notched up their biggest hit for over 20 years, but the Cult have been forced to do a bit of downsizing ahead of their autumn tour.

The veteran rockers the band, heading a triple bill also including Killing Joke and the Mission, have switched their Newcastle date next month from the 11,000-capacity Metro Radio Arena to the city’s 2,000-capacity O2 Academy.

The date – Tuesday, September 11 – remains unchanged, as does the price of tickets, £35 a shot.

Tickets for the original show are no longer valid and will have to be exchanged for new ones to secure admission.

The Cult’s latest album, Choice of Weapon, released in May, gave the band, formed in Bradford back in 1983, their highest chart placing since 1991’s Ceremony both here and in their current homeland, the US, scraping into the top 20 here and making it to No 34 over there.
