The six date tour will see Cooper play songs from his acclaimed Detroit Stories album in the UK for the first time, while fans of The Cult will have the opportunity to see Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy onstage together again for the first time since their hugely-successful 2019 tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of their Sonic Temple album. Promoters AEG are promising “a dark, twisted trip through goth, psychedelia, macabre theatre and straight-up rock anthems” on a nightly basis.
Earlier this year, Cooper told UK newspaper The Independent that concert audiences right now are “shock-proof”.
“You could cut off your arm and eat it on stage and it wouldn’t matter,” he predicted.
The Cult, meanwhile, are to have their 2007 album, Born Into This, reissued by Cherry Red on October 15, newly expanded with a second disc of bonus material.
