The Cult will perform “Electric,” raw and unfiltered on tour in 2013, an event branded as ELECTRIC 13. The band has never before performed the album in its entirety. The live show will also include a second set pulling from the band’s eight other studio albums.
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 now legendary producer Rick Rubin (The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Public Enemy), the band delivered a recording that has gone on to become one of The Cult’s most successful and influential albums.
“Electric” went on to become the band’s first Platinum album. They quickly captured media attention featuring heavily in music and fashion magazine’s as well as becoming an MTV staple after dark and received heavy spins on radio coast to coast. 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, and returned at the end of the year to sell out Wembley Arena and Brixton Academy in London.
“The Cult’s life blood has always been playing live,” lead vocalist Ian Astbury said. “We have decided that performing the Electric album, an event that has been demanded by our fans and followers for years, is the perfect live set to play in 2013.”
