Get ready to scream the chorus of "Fire Woman" at the top of your lungs, Orlando rockers. Brit band the Cult have added another run of North American tour dates celebrating the 30th anniversary of breakthrough album Sonic Temple, and the City Beautiful is one of those beneficiaries.

Sonic Temple was the Cult's biggest album, a collection of lean rock anthems (produced by Bob Rock, not coincidentally) that earned them multi-platinum sales and a tour with Metallica upon its release in 1989. The setlist for these shows will center around Sonic Temple, with songs from throughout their career filling out the setlist.

The Cult headline the House of Blues on Saturday, May 16, at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale March 6.
