Scarborough Open Air theatre attracts some of the biggest acts from around the world and the latest band The Cult is no exception. The band will perform at both Piece Hall in Halifax and Scarborough this summer.
Formed in Bradford, The Cult had massive hits in the mid-80s with tunes such as Rain, Fire Woman, Love Removal Machine, Lil’ Devil, and of course, She Sells Sanctuary.
The band is heading to Yorkshire’s Piece Hall on Wednesday 5th July to play Piece Hall in Halifax, and then Thursday 6th July and to take the stage of Europe’s largest open-air theatre in Scarborough
The band had platinum-selling albums which include Love (1985), Electric (1987), Sonic Temple (1985), and Ceremony (1991), which cemented the band as a post-punk pioneer.
To this day the band remains an incredible live act and you can see frontman Ian Astbury and guitarist and co-songwriter Billy Duffy take to the stage in non-other than sunny Scarborough and West Yorkshire’s famous Piece Hall.
The band will be playing Scarborough and Halifax as part of a 13-date European tour . The band’s album Under The Midnight Sun was released last year and hit the UK top 20 making it their seventh to do so.
Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust said: “I cannot wait to welcome these Yorkshire legends to our iconic courtyard here at The Piece Hall.
“Hailing from just down the road in Bradford it’s virtually a homecoming gig and will be something special.”
If you’d like to see them play, tickets go on sale 10am this Friday 31st March.
