Ozzie fans of The Cult not very happy
Many fans of The Cult left the band's Festival Hall show in Melbourne somewhat shell-shocked after a patchy performance and verbal insults to the audience by singer Ian Astbury, reports music-news. Astbury surprised the audience with vulgar banter at one time telling the crowd that he would ejaculate in their faces if they didn't show how much they were enjoying the show. (That is the cleaned up version). Witnesses said that Astbury told the crowd that Melbourne had 'lost its rock and roll roots' and then complained that the crowd wasn't giving to the band.
