Taking place in the Glen Helen Blockbuster Pavilion – the largest amphitheater in the US – on September 20, the event is the fastest selling in the history of the venue, according to Clear Channel.

The Los Angeles radio station’s celebration also boasts a line-up including Jet, Interpol, Hot Hot Heat, Echo And The Bunnymen and Duran Duran.

Del Williams, the event’s organiser, said, “There is a tremendous passion for The Cure‘s prolific catalogue of music and relevance as the standard bearer for the alternative rock format as evidenced by the rabid demand for tickets for this event.”

Also appearing on the bill will be Dashboard Confessional, [a][/a] and Eighties one-hit wonders Berlin.
