The Cure in Orange

Time for what’s becoming a regular Vintage Video repeat: While we’ve posted this before — in 2010 and 2013, in fact — The Cure’s Robert Smith has yet to follow through with his announcement of a DVD release of “The Cure in Orange,” so, as it remains sadly out of print, we once again present the full 1987 concert film, thanks to the miracle of YouTube Vimeo YouTube.

Filmed Aug. 9 and 10, 1986, at the Theatre Antique d’Orange in the French countryside, the entire 23-song, Head on the Door-era set — plus intro and outro, the former of which captures Simon Gallup’s famous de-wigging of the newly shorn Smith — is re-presented below, thanks to Vimeo YouTube uploader  wav ryder (via Gods & Alcoves) (Unknown Pleasures Records).

Following its theatrical run, the Tim Pope-directed “Cure in Orange” was released only on VHS and laser disc. Smith announced in October 2009 that, at long last, the film was to be released on DVD in 2010.

And still we wait.
