Fans of The Cure stitch together full concert filmed on phones — and are giving it away

Nearly 1,000 fans of The Cure contributed video and photos to a project by a Polish fansite to stitch together an enormous amateur multicam of the band’s Oct. 20, 2016, concert in Łódź, Poland — and they’re now offering the nearly 3-hour film as a free download to fellow fanatics.

The project was undertaken by fansite thecure.pl, which released the completed film last month. The organizers say their goal was to assemble the best quality audio and video possible, and in doing so, they gathered more than 350GB of footage “from phone clips to Blu-ray and 4K quality files.” They also obtained near-soundboard audio to use over that footage.

That effort has produced a full document of the 31-song, 2-hour-43-minute concert — which you can download in a variety of video formats, including HD, from the link below.

Also, check out the full setlist, and some videos from the full performance.

  • I wish someone would do this with the 1st night in Chicago and the the Kansas City shows.

    Too bad they got one of the setlists with almost no rare tracks. Would have loved any if the album tracks from the top or KMKMKM or any of the bsides they’d been playing since 2012….at least they got Burn.

     
  • I was at both Chicago shows. They were great. The Austin show too.

     
  • Any word on if The Cure are working on anything new?

     
  • All very well, but they did nick the idea off Radiohead, who offered a mixing-desk recording of their Prague show in 2009 to a fan site, who cobbled together fan footage to form a full show recording back in a time when this tech was new. Go to radiohead-prague.nataly.fr
