Band will appear on festival bill with Spiritualized, WU LYF and Bat For Lashes
The former NME Godlike Genius winners will play 1979’s ‘Three Imaginary Boys’, 1980 follow-up ‘Seventeen Seconds’ and 1981’s ‘Faith’ at the Sydney Opera House in their entirety on both May 31 and June 1.
The gigs, entitled ‘The Cure Reflections’, will feature as part of the 10-day festival which will be held at the venue on May 27-June 5. See Vividlive.sydneyoperahouse.com for details.
“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 singer Robert Smith. “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.”
