The Cure perform marathon 'secret' show in LA
The Cure performed a marathon set before a star-studded crowd at the Troubadour in Los Angeles Saturday night (December 13).

The goth legends, who will be crowned NME's Godlike Geniuses in early 2009, played for nearly three hours at the intimate club, thrilling the packed house with a set that included crowd-pleasing hits including 'Pictures Of You', 'Lovesong' and 'Just Like Heaven', as well as more obscure material.

The band also played a handful of tracks from their new, guitar-driven album '4:13 Dream', as members of The Killers, My Chemical Romance, Paramore and AFI looked on, as well as actors Kirsten Dunst, Ryan Gosling and Jared Leto.

The gig was part of the MySpace Secret Show series, which offers free tickets to members of the online social networking community.

The Cure played:

'Underneath The Stars'
'Pictures Of You'
'The Perfect Boy'
'Alt End'
'The Reasons Why'
'The Walk'
'The End Of The World'
'The Real Snow White'
'The Hungry Ghost'
'From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea'
'The Only One'
'Wrong Number'
'Sleep When I'm Dead'
'Friday I'm in Love'
'In Between Days'
'Just Like Heaven'
