If you missed the mammoth The Cure show in London’s Hyde Park last year, don’t fret. It’s hitting the silver screen globally in July.
After documentary plans were revealed in 2017, the band’s longtime music video collaborator Tim Pope teased the film earlier this year. Now, a worldwide release has been confirmed.
The Cure’s 40th Anniversary Live in Hyde Park London is set to screen in theatres as a concert film around the world on July 11.
Pope worked closely alongside lead vocalist and guitarist Robert Smith during all stages of the filmmaking process. The film features Smith’s accompanying soundscapes and 4K visuals to provide cinema-goers with an immersive concert experience.
Described as one of the most memorable concerts of the band’s career, the set comprised of 29 songs spanning the band’s four-decade output. The Cure treated audiences to hits, rarities, and deep dives totalling over two hours.
It’s been over 11 years since we had a taste of new music from the newly inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, but there’s a lot to look forward to in 2019. After headlining Glastonbury this year, the band will gear up to release their long-awaited 14th studio album, which has been described as a “dark, incredibly intense” Halloween LP.
Tickets for The Cure Anniversary 1978-2018 are available from June 6.
