Formed in England in 1976 around Robert Smith, Michael Dempsey and Laurence “Lol” Tolhurst, The Cure upset the musical landscape in 1979 with Three Imaginary Boys, a first album that was described at the time as post-punk. But the group quickly evolves towards a new-wave style, developing more melancholic atmospheres, even in the early 80s if their “icy trilogy” composed of Seventeen Seconds, Faith and Pornography still retains the rock energy of the beginning. The pop turn came in 1987 with Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, favoring bittersweet compositions and long instrumental introductions. In 1989 Disintegration returned to the darkness of the first albums, and continued to flirt with success, as evidenced by the titles: Pictures of you or Lullaby.

More than 2.5 hours of show

If the 90s with Wish released in 1993 will be a little erratic, Robert Smith’s group will return to the front of the stage with Bloodflowers in 2000 and the very rock The Cure in 2004. The legendary rock band now made up of Robert Smith on vocals and guitar, Simon Gallup on bass, Roger O’Donnell on keyboards, Reeves Gabrels on guitar and Jason Cooper on drums returns after 5 years of absence on stage . This will be the biggest French tour ever by the group, which was already doing their first concert in France at the Bataclan in 1979. From November 7, 2022, they will travel across France for 8 exceptional dates with the Scottish bands of THE TWILIGHT SAD in the first left to finish in style in Paris on November 28, 2022 at the Accor Arena, a date already complete (as well as that of Nantes). According to the press release, the show should last something like 165 minutes, or more than 2.5 hours each evening, enough to sweep through an inexhaustible repertoire and delight their fans!
