Las Vegas, NV (March 10, 2014) – British rockers, The Cult, are one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the late 20th century, selling millions of albums, headlining arenas and stadiums around the world, infusing innovative possibilities into the worlds of music and art, and quickly ascending through the ranks of the indie music world to achieve global status.  And now, for one night only, they’ll be taking over The Joint. The Cult will rock out The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, April 19. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am.


As early as its first American tour in 1984, The Cult became one of the handful of important bands in the U.S. post-modern and hard rock communities.  The band was embraced by the lost children of The Doors and Velvet Underground, and a generation that was waking up to the influence of 60s and 70s rock icons like Led Zeppelin, The New York Dolls and David Bowie.


Formed in Brixton, London in 1983 as Death Cult, The Cult’s music transformed from punk rock to post-punk, psychedelia, heavy dance music, and transcendental hard rock.  As one journalist noted, “Using a few simple riffs and images, The Cult creates an entire environment, one more exciting and stimulating than our own.”


The constant core of The Cult is vocalist/lyricist Ian Astbury and guitarist/composer Billy Duffy.  Attitude incarnate, the chemistry between these two vastly different artists - equal-parts genuine affection and palpable tension - remains the source of their long-standing partnership.  Duffy grounds Astbury’s esoteric side with a hard rock perspective, and there is no doubt that at all times, these two have each other’s backs.


On June 20, 2013, the band released Electric-Peace. It’s the Electric album in its entirety plus the Peace album.
