The Cure will host and headline a daylong music festival on the golf course next to the iconic Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., over Labor Day weekend, with Robert Smith and Co. joined by hand-picked supporting acts Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, Throwing Muses and more. Full details right here.
For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we present a real treasure for fans of The Cure: about a half-hour’s worth of footage of the band rehearsing its Prayer Tour set at Bray Studios in Berkshire, England, in April of 1989, the month before Disintegration was released and the band headed out on tour.
As promised, Robert Smith this week started streaming The Cure’s live performance of ‘Disintegration’ — recorded at Dallas’ Starplex Amphitheatre on 1989’s Prayer Tour — on the band’s microsite for the new reissue.
