Last night, legendary British rock band, The Cult, made a stop in Detroit at the Fillmore where they ran through their legendary 1987 album, Electric, in its entirety before coming back out for a second set featuring a mix of songs from the rest of the band's catalog.
The Cult is one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the 20th century and have sold millions of album worldwide.
The Electric album was the band's first platinum album and captured the attention of the media and opened up a whole new fan base for them.
This tour is the band's first shot at playing the full album live and it was obvious that they are having a blast doing it in their rocking two hour set.
Front man, Ian Astbury, has a large stage presence and he spent much of the evening spouting strange stories and quotes to the crowd as well as becoming Detroit's newest cheerleader.
He was also impressed by the crowd size noting, ""You guys are in a recession? Doesn't f*cking look like it!"
However, it was the music that everyone was there to hear and there was plenty of that as the band roared through their set and relished playing rarities like "Aphrodisiac Jacket" and "Outlaw".
The second half of their set relied on their biggest hits from "Rain" to "She Sells Sanctuary".
The Cult closed things out with "Spiritwalker" and "Sun King".
