The Cult Lineup Tour Dates With Ozzy, Guns N' Roses and Garbage
The tour plans include headline shows, festivals, special dates with Guns N' Roses, and main support on an Ozzy & Friends show.
The 14-date trek kicks off June 28 in Belgrade with The Cult as main support for Ozzy & Friends, then to Austria and Romania with Guns N' Roses, followed by a slew of headline club shows, and then wrapping up on July 19 in Portugal, sharing the stage with Garbage.
The tour is in support of The Cult's first new album in five years, Choice of Weapon, which is set for a May 21 release date internationally, and a May 22 release date in North America, on Cooking Vinyl worldwide.
Choice of Weapon was written by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, recorded in New York City, Los Angeles, the California high desert, and the band's Witch Mountain studio between July and December 2011. Long-time Cult collaborator and producer Bob Rock, who produced one of The Cult's most successful albums, the Platinum-certified Sonic Temple, put the finishing touches on the foundations that were laid by co-producer Chris Goss. The new release features founding members Astbury on vocals and Duffy on guitars, with drummer John Tempesta and bassist Chris Wyse.
