The Cure are set to perform their debut album ‘Three Imaginary Boys’ (1979) and its follow-up records ‘Seventeen Seconds’ (1980), and ‘Faith’ (1981), in their entirety at London‘s Royal Albert Hall on November 15.
Following similar shows entitled Reflections in Australia earlier this year, the band will also take the special concert to Los Angeles Pantages Theatre for November 21-23 and to New York Beacon Theatre for November 25-27.
Each album set will last approximately 40 minutes and the evening will be concluded with a 30-minute encore of other songs from the band’s early career. The shows will see former members of the band appearing in the line-up. The current line-up of the band headlined Bestival earlier this month.
Tickets for the show go on sale at 9am on September 30.
