The Cure ‘Reflections’ playing in Australia for Vivid Live

Woohoo – announced today. The Cure are coming back to Australia for vivid live festival in Sydney. Playing on the 31st May and 1st June, it’s sure to be be pretty special, especially considering ‘what’ they will be playing.

They will be playing three albums in their entirerty – namely Three Imaginary Boys (1979), Seventeen Seconds (1980), and Faith (1981). Any die hard Cure fans will absolutely love the playlist. There’s nothing better than songs like 10:15 Saturday Night, A Forest or Play for Today being played live.

Look at the line up of who will be appearing – Awesome to see Lol Tolhurst back for this tour:

Three Imaginary Boys (1979)
The Cure Trio: Robert Smith (voice & guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums)

Seventeen Seconds (1980)
The Cure Quartet: Robert Smith (voice & guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O’Donnell (keys)

Faith (1981)
The Cure Quintet: Robert Smith (voice & guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O’Donnell (keys & percussion), Laurence Tolhurst (keys & percussion)

The Cure are playing at the Opera House which is unusual and new to the band, but I noticed that the performance will be recorded for distribution and broadcast so expect to see DVDs released in the future. Pity their other Oz tours from years back haven’t been recorded because they have done some good ones – hang on, all of them have been good! And it is being advertised as a 180 minute concert.

Can’t wait for this, and look for another post here after the concerts to report how good it was as I’m definitely going!
