RNR News and Notes

2019 is shaping up to be a good year for fans of The Cure....

 

They will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 29th.  

 

They've announced a bunch of tour dates ... nothing in the US ... yet ;) 

 

And in honor of it being the 30th Anniversary year of the release of Disintegration (their best record?)

They have announced that they will be playing the record in full ... that's the good news ...

 

The bad news - for those of us fans in the United States - is that these shows are in Austrailia ... 

 

The band will be celebrating that landmark by playing it live in full at four shows, as part of Sydney, Australia’s Vivid LIVE festival series on May 24, 25, 27 & 28 at the Sydney Opera House.

 


 

According to lead singer Robert Smith - “Vivid LIVE is a wonderful international event.  Our Reflections shows in 2011 were truly memorable experiences, and with the excitement surrounding those early album performances in mind, we are more than delighted to be announcing our return in May 2019 to present the world premiere of Disintegration – 30th Anniversary.”

 

So - unless you have some disposable income laying around  (or a surplus of Qantas Airlines points)  - we'll have to wait for some US dates to be announced ...
