The Cure will commemorate last year’s 40th anniversary celebration with a new 6-disc box set this fall that will include full audio and video of the band’s recently screened “Anniversary” concert film as well as the yet-to-be-seen visual document of the group’s Meltdown festival set.

The box set, 40 Live: Curaetion-25 + Anniversary, will be released Oct. 18 by Eagle Rock Entertainment, according to a product listing on It’s available for pre-order now in three formats: a 2 Blu-ray/4 CD set, a 2 DVD /4  CD set and, for those not interested in the audio discs, a 2 DVD set.

The Cure performed two major career retrospectives last year, both of which are included here.

On June 24, the band closed the Robert Smith-curated Meltdown festival in London — the event’s 25th installment — with a 28-song set called “Cureation-25: From There to Here, From Here to There,” during which The Cure played one song off each of its 13 studio albums in chronological order, then counted back down again. Plus, they played two unreleased songs (“It Can Never Be the Same,” “Step Into the Light”).

Then, on July 7, Smith and Co. performed a massive 29-song 40th anniversary concert to tens of thousands of fans in London’s Hyde Park, documented by Tim Pope in the film “Anniversary 1978-2018: Live in Hyde Park London,” which last month screened in cinemas worldwide.
