In 1985, the band recorded the Love album and experienced its first high-profile success with the classic track “She Sells Sanctuary” that won a CMJ Award for Song of the Year. The Electric album was released in 1987 and became the band’s first platinum album. The band was at the top of its game, and Sonic Temple became The Cult’s second album to achieve Platinum success when it was released in 1989.Astbury left the band in 1995 to explore another direction and in 1999, The Cult returned with a heralded, sold-out seven-night stand at the House of Blues on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip. Since then the band has continued touring and making music. According to Astbury, “We don’t have fans, we have devotees. You either need it or you don’t. You either get it or you won’t. There is nothing casual about The Cult.”On sale now through Ticketmaster only.

When Ferry's group Roxy Music first appeared on 'Top of the Pops' in 1972, performing their debut single, 'Virginia Plain', their impact was instantaneous. More or less overnight, the band's audience was secured - from screaming teenage fans to highbrow rock critics and Ferry's creation of Roxy Music became one of the great statements of Pop Art. Since 1973, Ferry's career as a solo recording artist has run in parallel to his work with Roxy Music. That same year he introduced his 'ready-mades' - cover versions of recordings by artists whom he admires, which he then interprets in his own style. Since the 1990s Ferry has continued his work on both the 'ready-made' and his own compositions. His 2014 tour, including his April 17 stop at Humphreys will feature an incredible set list of hits, favorites and rarities covering 40 years of career highlights. Get your tickets early as we predict this will be a night to remember. Opening the show will be Dawn Landes.
In the past two years, Ingrid Michaelson -- who'll drop her fifth studio album, "Lights Out" (Cabin 24/Mom+Pop) on April 15 -- has vaulted from overachieving indie-pop sweetheart to a bona-fide pop star. Her last release, "Human Again," debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart (plus No.1 on iTunes). This achievement merely crowned the considerable success Ingrid had already earned with her previous compositions: beautiful, idiosyncratic songs that have been prominently featured in popular films, commercials and television shows including The Vampire Diaries, Scrubs, Bones and Grey’s Anatomy. We are happy to welcome Ingrid to Humphreys for the first time on May 9. She brings her special guests Storyman and Sugar + The Hi-Lows.On sale now through Ticketmaster only.
There is no one else like Lindsey Stirling. A classically trained violinst, Sitrling is a model of modern independent recording artists. Her song "Crystallize" was the eighth most-viewed video on You Tube last year, racking up an incredible 78 million views. She appeared on 2010's America's Got Talent and made it to the quarterfinals before being voted off. Rejection simply strengthened her resolve to be herself and to start composing. Lindsey's debut album has created a new musical world where the romance of Celtic folk music and modern classical meet the infectious energy of dance and electronica. Sure to be a special and unique show at Humphreys. With special guest, singer/songwriter, Dia Frampton. (General Admission Standing Only). On sale now through Ticketmaster only.
