The Cure are releasing a concert film of their 2018 Hyde Park performance

After previously teasing plans to make a documentary in 2017, director Tim Pope has now confirmed an upcoming concert film of The Cure’s 2018 Hyde Park performance in London.

The performance, which marked 40 years since the release of their first single Killing an Arab, was an epic 29-song set with classics such as Boys Don’t Cry and Friday I’m in Love. This year marks four decades since the release of their debut album Three Imaginary Boys, and the band is also headlining Glastonbury Festival this June.

Director Tim Pope has announced that a concert film of The Cure’s 2018 40th Anniversary Hyde Park Performance “will hit cinemas in early summer” (aka Australian winter).

Pope has posted two teaser images to social media, announcing that the film has been shot in “groovy 4K” and “mixed at Abbey Road in glorious 5:1 surround sound”. Pope has also previously said that the film will be led by frontman Robert Smith, and will chronologically tell the band’s history from the 70s to now.

The Cure will also be performing five sold-out Disintegration 30th Anniversary shows at Sydney Opera House for Vivid LIVE in a few weeks. If you missed out on tickets, this show will be available to stream on Facebook and YouTube at the end of May.  So you’ll be able to get your fix of The Cure on the big screen and the small screen this winter.
