Heather Bieber of the Las Vegas Weekly reviewed The Cult concert at the Joint on Thursday. Bieber says the group is still “producing a tight sound after 20 years” and added, “The obscure set list reflected a full evolution of the band’s music, from the early years as Southern Death Cult to a few songs from ‘Beyond Good and Evil.’ Although [guitarist Billy] Duffy seemed to have some technical difficulty toward the end of the show, the band exploded with energy that mirrored the crowd’s enthusiasm.” Lasvegasweekly.com has since removed the article.

The Cult bassist Billy Morrison told fans on the group’s official site message board that the band is on hiatus. Billy said, “Here it is from my point of view. This is what Ive been told. The Cult are on ice …… which does not mean ‘split up’. It means Ian and Billy are doing other things. As the new guy, I consider myself lucky to have been able to be a part of such a great band. If I get the phone call to play, I’ll be there. I always said I was loyal. Until then, my intention is to make my own music, as I am sure the others are doing as well. I am finishing demos as we speak, will be looking for the rest of my band (all rumours about my guitarist are unfounded right now!!!) and will be playing shows as soon as all that is in place.”
