The Cure Announced As First Act For Sydney’s Vivid LIVE 2019


The Cure are coming to Sydney!

The iconic British goths have just been announced as the first act to grace the lineup of the city’s VIVID Live festival in 2019, heading to our shores in honour of the 30th anniversary of their iconic album Disintegration.

Robert Smith & co will hit the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall stage for four nights only in May in a world premiere, performing their eighth LP in full alongside moving tracks from their extensive back catalogue.

“Vivid LIVE is a wonderful international event,” Smith says. “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.”
