The Cure Lights Up Hyde Park in New Concert Film
It hits theaters tomorrow, July 11.
The Cure – Anniversary 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park London hits theaters worldwide tomorrow via Trafalgar Releasing and Eagle Rock Entertainment, and in an exclusive clip released today on Consequence of Sound, Robert Smith and his smoky eyes and wild hair can be seen banging out “Just Like Heaven” against a brilliant sunset—a song that probably makes most people happy no matter where they are when they hear it.
Directed by The Cure’s frequent collaborator Tim Pope (he’s directed over thirty videos for the goth rockers), the flick details last summer’s epic fortieth anniversary show, during which the band played twenty-nine of their best-loved songs in London’s beautiful Hyde Park.
Watch the trailer below, in which Smith can be heard whining out “Boys Don’t Cry” in that special voice which ironically, always sounds right on the verge of tears.
The Cure is in the final stages of making a new record anticipated to be out this year, their first in a decade. They’re also set for their very own music fest, Pasadena Daydream, in Cali on August 31. Score tour tickets here.
