The Cure today announced the addition of a fifth and final 30th anniversary performance of the band’s magnum opus Disintegration to its late-May run in Sydney, Australia — and this last concert will be streamed live around the world for all to see.

The fifth concert will take place May 30, and will be streamed online beginning at 8 p.m. Sydney time — which is 3 a.m. in Los Angeles and 6 a.m. in New York City. Event organizers, however, promise “the performance will be available on-demand from Sydney Opera House’s YouTube channel and Facebook page for a period of time after May 30.”

According to the promoters, the May concerts will feature a full performance of Disintegration to be followed by “a selection of rarely performed B-sides plus specially curated deep catalog cuts.” The Cure still plays a good portion of Disintegration in concert, and played the full album, though not in order, during 1989’s Prayer Tour. It has not played the record front-to-back, however, since 2002’s Trilogy concerts in Berlin.
