The Cure confirmed for VividLIVE
Fri 6th May, 2011 in Local News
The Cure has been added to the lineup of Vivid LIVE and even as a stunning bonus (as if a tour wasn’t already enough) they’ll be playing their first three albums live, in their entirety, in an extraordinary concert experience exclusively for Vivid LIVE.
The two performances will both feature all three albums, with two intervals and will be filmed for broadcast.
The announcement quotes Robert Smith declaring that “Vivid LIVE is an exceptional event, and we are very excited to be taking par. 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, and we want to do something unique to mark the occasion. Combining Cure members past and present in a live filmed interpretation of our first three albums feels to me like it should do the trick!”
