Robert Smith and co will play 1979 debut ‘Three Imaginary Boys‘, second album ‘Seventeen Seconds‘ and 1981′s ‘Faith‘ at the prestigious Sydney Opera House on May 31st and June 1st.
“We have played a lot of memorable shows in Australia, we first performed here in 1980, and this will be our seventh trip – but it will be our first time onstage in the Sydney Opera House,” said Smith on the plans.
“We want to do something unique to mark the occasion, combining The Cure members past and present in a live filmed interpretation of our first three albums. Feels to me like it should do the trick.”
The Cure will appear alongside the likes of Spiritualized and Bat For Lashes, while they are also due to headline Bestival this year, where they will be joined by Primal Scream and PJ Harvey.Just Published:
