Enter for a chance to win The Cure’s 40 Live box set (Out October 18 on Umusic) including four CDs and two DVDs.
The band celebrated their 40th anniversary as a band last year and they're releasing footage from some special milestone performances. The 40 Live box set features two films, Curætion 25: From There To Here / From Here To There and Anniversary: 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park.
The first film, CURÆTION-25: From There To Here | From Here To There, was captured on the tenth and final night of the 25th Meltdown Festival (curated by lead singer Robert Smith) at London’s Royal Festival Hall in June 2018. The Cure performed a song from each of their 13 studio albums in chronological order, displaying the evolution of The Cure’s music live on stage. Along with those songs, they played some new, unreleased material offering a glimpse into the band’s future before playing another song off each album.
The second film shows the band's live set from Hyde Park in London in July 2018. They played a career-spanning, 29-song setlist to a crowd of 65,000 people.
Longtime collaborator and director of the films Tim Pope states “I went to rehearsals in a very cramped studio just the day before the show… I knew as the set list unfolded that the only way to show people The Real Cure was to capture not only the grand, epic dimension of their stage show, but also the close, intimate side of this band simply making music together.”
“This really was the perfect way to celebrate 40 years of the band,” Smith adds. “It was a fabulous day none of us will ever forget!”
