The Cure will complete another busy year of touring with the release of a live DVD in December, made with a little help from their fans.

“Festival 2005” follows the ’80s gothic rockers on their nine-date European tour last year when band members, crew and some lucky competition-winner fans were given hand-held cameras to capture each night’s action.

The finished film, co-mixed by frontman Robert Smith, features professionally shot footage mixed with the fans’ hand-held clips.

The career-spanning 30-track set list includes live favourites such as “Disintegration”, “A Forest” and “Just Like Heaven”.

This is not the first time a concert film has been made by fans of a band.

“Awesome: I f****** Shot That” is the feature length film of New York rappers The Beastie Boys 2004 Madison Square Garden.

The concert filmed by 50 fans was released earlier this year.

“Festival 2005” is out on Suretone/Geffen Records on December 5.
