It’s a big day for the Cure. First, we learned that the goth-pop originators have been nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. And now, after the success of their Australian appearance, the band has also announced plans for a few truly huge shows. In November, they will take to the stage in London, Los Angeles, and New York for a few special shows, in which they’ll play their first three albums in their entirety. That’s three albums. In full. In one night. Respect their hustle!
To be fair, 1979’s Three Imaginary Boys, 1980’s Seventeen Seconds, and 1981’s Faith only run about 40 minutes each. But they’re also promising 30-minute encores on their website, so we’re still talking about some serious marathon shows here. Band members from past lineups will help out. As mentioned, the band first tried out this “Reflections” show at Australia’s Vividfest earlier this year; you can see videos from that show here.
The show comes to London’s Royal Albert Hall 11/15, L.A.’s Pantages Theatre 11/21-23, and New York’s Beacon Theatre 11/25-27.
