It was a gig of two halves for vintage rock­ers The Cult who at­tracted an equally vintage sell-out crowd to the Academy on Tues­day night. “I’m as sick as two dogs,” said gui­tarist Billy Duffy. The band were clearly in rag or­der af­ter their turn at the Down­load Fes­ti­val last week­end. They did pick up the pace in the sec­ond half with a suc­ces­sion of crowd pleasers. Duffy ded­i­cated She Sells Sanc­tu­ary to fel­low rock­ers Cheap Trick, who were in the au­di­ence. They closed with Fire Woman and their ver­sion of The Doors’ Break On Through (To the Other Side).
