Hire the Cult:
The Cult are an English rock band formed in 1983 in Bradford, West Yorkshire. Their discography includes 10 studio albums, two live albums, six compilation albums, seven video albums, five box sets, 20 EPs and 37 singles.
Before settling on their current name in January 1984, the band performed under the name Death Cult, which was an evolution of the name of lead singer Ian Astbury’s previous band, Southern Death Cult.
They gained a dedicated following in the United Kingdom in the mid-1980s as a post-punk/gothic rock band, with singles such as “She Sells Sanctuary”, before breaking into the mainstream in the United States in the late 1980s, establishing themselves as a hard rock band with singles, such as “Love Removal Machine”.
Hire The Cult for your festival or concert plans!
Since its initial formation in 1983, the band have had various line-ups; the longest-serving members are Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, who are also the band’s two songwriters.
Duffy and Astbury cited among their influences a lot of different bands “from the Doors to Led Zeppelin. We literally went from the front of our record collections to the back. And then along the way we were drawn in by the likes of Public Image Ltd, Joy Division and Siouxsie and the Banshees. You might not hear it in the music but it’s there.”

They also cited Bauhaus among many other post-punk influences. Duffy also praised Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers for a major performance he attended in 1977 and Siouxsie and the Banshees whom “always had great guitar players with killer riffs.”
Duffy also hailed AC/DC for “the power of a good three chord riff”, Pete Townshend of the Who “in terms of commitment to stage performing” and Brian May of Queen for using “‘echoplex’ tape delays to orchestrate his own solo”.
According to music critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine, the band fuse a “hardcore punk revivalist” sound with the “pseudo-mysticism … of the Doors and Uriah Heep and the guitar-orchestrations of Led Zeppelin and The Cure … while adding touches of post-punk goth rock”. In 1985 Astbury said, “Our music is just melodies and guitars. We’re like Big Country and U2, only better!”.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE THE CULT?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire THE CULT for an event?)
(i.e., what is THE CULT booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for THE CULT, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
