The Guns N’ Roses “Not in This Lifetime Tour” has wrangled an eclectic array of opening acts ranging from Chris Stapleton to Lenny Kravitz to Skrillex.

For the July 27 date at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome, Ian Astbury and The Cult have the honors of prepping the stage for Axl Rose and Co.

The British goth-punk rockers known for their ‘80s hits “She Sells Sanctuary” and “Fire Woman,” released their 10th studio album, “Hidden City,” in February. Along with frontman Astbury, The Cult is comprised of Billy Duffy on guitar, John Tempesta on drums, Grant Fitzpatrick on bass and Damon Fox on keys and rhythm guitar.
