Sort of preview from the Calgary Herald, August 21, 1987:

ROCK

The British band The Cult, the self-appointed heir to Led Zeppelin, returns to Calgary for a concert at the Max Bell Arena Thursday night, in what promises to be a heavy- rock extravaganza. The group is currently riding high in the charts with its Electric recording. The opening act will be the up and coming U.S. group Guns N’ Roses.

Cult awesome thunder

THE CULT and Guns N’ Roses at the Max Bell Arena Thursday night. Attendance: about 3,000.

This was a show that recaptured the emotional centre that has always represented the best and most powerful rock 'n' roll, both with The Cult and the raw, sexually aggressive opening set of Guns N’ Roses.
