The first time I saw The Cult was in 1987 when they opened for Billy Idol. My husband was there too, but we had not met yet. It was back in Maryland and I always wonder how close we were to each other in the crowd.
I was thrilled to photograph The Cult for their 2016 tour to support the new album Hidden City, which is great, although I’ll admit nothing could ever match “She Sells Sanctuary” in my heart.
Ian Astbury and the guys hit Denver’s Ogden Theatre with lots of loud music and not much talking, perhaps because he wanted to stick to music after his All Lives Matter gaffe. More likely, it was the lack of oxygen a mile high – something everyone complains about while playing in Denver.
Either way, the concert was a great mix of old and new – and lots of rock and roll.
