The Cure Play “A Man Inside My Mouth” Live For The First Time In Rarity-Packed London Show

The Cure played their first of three Christmas shows at London’s Eventim Apollo last night, and the band dedicated a good portion of their 40-song setlist to deep cuts and rarities. They debuted The Head On The Door B-side “A Man Inside My Mouth” live for the first time, and played “The Empty World” and “Wailing Wall” (both from 1984’s The Top) for the first time in 30 years. They also did Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me’s “Hey You!!!” and “Like Cockatoos” for the first time in a decade. Watch video from the show below, and check out the full setlist.
