For some reason hearing that The Cure is 40 caught me off guard. I should have known that and it shouldn’t have surprised me but it did.
To celebrate, they are throwing a one-night-only party of epic proportions.
The Cure will only be playing one European show in 2018, but the British mainstays plan on making it count. To celebrate the band’s 40th birthday, Robert Smith and his fellow imaginary boys have assembled a kind of Monsters of Moody Rock line-up featuring Interpol, Goldfrapp, and Editors. Ride and Slowdive apparently comprise the event’s shoegaze contingency.
They are promising a full 120 minute headline set!
