Date Posted: 28/03/12
Some of the most important bands of the alternative rock era, The Cult, The Mission and Killing Joke, are to head off on a five-date arena tour together this autumn.
The tour commences in Newcastle on Tuesday, September 11th before the bands head to Sheffield, Manchester and Birmingham.
Fans can book London hotels on Sunday, September 16th to see the final date at Wembley Arena.
The Cult will release their first studio album in more than five years on Monday, May 21st.
Chris Goss and Bob Rock both worked on the production of Choice of Weapon, which was recorded in four different locations across the US.
The Mission are a goth rock band that formed in 1986 after The Sisters of Mercy dissolved, while Killing Joke are an English post-punk band that were founded in the late 1970s in Notting Hill, London.
Frontman of The Cult Ian Astbury said: "This is a fantastic bill and these will be magical shows, a unique occasion that we look forward to with great anticipation. The band is killing it right now and we are excited to get back to the business of playing live."
