While on tour in Europe, british rock band The Cult's bus hit a guard rail while traveling from Split, Croatia to Ljubijana, Slovenia. View a statement from vocalist Ian Astbury about the incident below.
"I was the only one awake. All of a sudden, the bus veered violently, hit the guard rail and tipped on a 45-degree angle, then righted itself and came to a halt. The guard rail was the only thing that prevented us from going over an 80-foot drop."
The band continued on and was able to not miss any shows. You can catch them on tour throughout Europe, Canada and the US this summer. See the dates below.
