The Cult to Play Zagreb

The Cult in Zagreb in June

Legendary British rock band The Cult are the latest act confirmed to tour Croatia in the summer.

The Cult, who formed in the early 1980s, will play at Zagreb RockFest in the open air Šalata venue on 27 June.

Confirmed acts for the Zagreb RockFest also include Prophets of Rage, House of Pain and Black Peaks, who will play on Šalata the day before The Cult.

The Cult gained popularity in the UK in the mid-1980s as a post-punk/gothic rock band, with singles such as “She Sells Sanctuary”, before breaking mainstream in the United States in the late 1980s as a hard rock band with singles such as “Love Removal Machine” and “Fire Woman”.

In the mid 1990s the broke up but reunited in 1999 and recorded the album Beyond Good and Evil.

In 2016 The Cult released their new album ‘Hidden City’. The album is said to be the final part of a trilogy that began with Born into This, and marks the fifth time Bob Rock had produced a Cult album.

Founding singer Ian Astbury, guitarist Billy Duffy, drummer John Tempesta, bassist Grant Fitzpatrick and keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Damon Fox went on tour in 2016 to promote Hidden City. The Cult opened for Guns N’ Roses on the Not in This Lifetime… Tour.
