Another SummerCure 2012 flashback

The Cure - 10:15 Saturday Night (Portugal  July 14th, 2012)
"After all the South American frenzy and just before the next couple of shows, here's a weird one from last summer...featuring some onstage banter, happy girls dancing backstage & the relevation that the mighty Simon Gallup is human after all... ;-)"

Thanks again, George. Love these clips and the work you put into them!

Rumors of The Cure playing Big Day Out 2014

While we still wait & hope for more shows this year, especially solo shows in the US, rumors have already started for next year. The [AU] Review has them at a 90% chance of headlining the Big Day Out festival in 2014. The official announcement will be made on July 31st, so not long to wait & see if there's any validity to this one. Until then, nothing more than a rumor. (Thanks David)

Update: Not true.

Lullaby Versions of The Cure out Aug. 6th

From Bloody Disgusting: "The folks over at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star are seemingly unstoppable, cranking out one amazing lullaby version after another. This time they’re back with UK goth rock sensations The Cure by bringing a stream of their hit song “Just Like Heaven”, which comes from the 1987 album Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me. A full lullaby album will be released on August 6th (pre-order here) and features such tracks as “Lullaby”, “Pictures Of You”, “Friday I’m In Love”, “Lovesong”, and more. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have “Burn”, which is one of my favorite tracks from The Crow soundtrack, but I guess you can’t get everything you want, right?" (Thanks David)

The Cure & Depeche Mode at ACL in Oct!

Update (07/24/13): The schedule is out. The Cure plays Oct. 5th & 12th, 8 - 10PM. Depeche Mode plays Oct. 4th & 11th, 8 - 9:30PM.

Update (05/09/13): While Regular 3 day passes for weekend 1 are sold out, travel packages and VIP & Platinum 3 day passes are still available. And all options are still available for weekend 2.

Update (05/08/13): Hopefully clearing this up once & for all, ACL has posted the list of bands NOT playing both weekends. Every other band is playing BOTH weekends.

Update (05/07/13): The lineup is out! The Cure & Depeche Mode!!! At the same show!!! Here's the lineup video. That's some Cure bio they put up. Ton of effort and research went into that, I'm sure. :P Apologies to ACL, as they say The Cure provided that bio. In that case, it's actually pretty funny.

Again, to be absolutely clear on this, ACL is 2 weekends. Oct. 4th - 6th & Oct. 11th - 13th. The Cure, along with most of the bands, play 2 shows, 1 each weekend. If you want to see both Cure shows, you have to buy tix for BOTH weekends, not just 1. $225 for each weekend pass. No single day passes. On sale now. Platinum ($3.600) and VIP ($1,050) passes are also available.
