More Wishes Coming True

Gloom merchants, The Cure have celebrated their 30th anniversary edition of their album Wish with an appointment with Tim’s Twitter Listening Party.

The original album is a favourite among fans although when it is expanded to some 45 tracks, it might try the patience of some. The additional tracks do provide some insight in the creative process however.

Best though to instead go for the listening party to find out what the band thinks of the album now.

The Musical Remedy

As previously mentioned, The Cure had a residency at The Sydney Opera House to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their album Disintegration as part of the VIVID festival.

With all shows a sell out, fans of the band around the world were grateful for a live stream of the event.

Starting with a selection of B sides and outtakes from the period, the band then went into performing the album in its entirety. Rounding off the set with the song, Three Imaginary Boys (which is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary) and a cover of Wendy Waldman’s Pirate Ships.

Even the outside of the Opera House got in on the fun.

Pictures of Concerts

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of their album Disintegration, The Cure will be performing a special series of concerts playing the album in its entirety.

The concerts are going to be a residency at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Vivid Festival from the 24th May.

The catch is that the way to secure these much sought after tickets is by lottery. If you don’t know if you have tickets already, then you’ve probably missed out.

For those unticketed among us are not completely left out. A live stream of the event will be taking place on the 3oth of May.
