Speaking about the project, frontman Robert Smith said “This really was the perfect way to celebrate 40 years of the band. It was a fabulous day none of us will ever forget.”
Tim Pope added “Working alongside Robert for these 37 years of the band’s 40-year history – and also having previously filmed the band for the 35mm ‘In Orange’ 1986 concert film – I wanted cinema-goers to feel like they were in the thick of the action, in the heart of the music. Our film really captures the true power and passion of The Cure’s music for a global audience.”
Meanwhile, The Cure has been celebrating the 30th anniversary of Disintegration with a multi-night stint at the Sydney Opera House, where they perform the album in full. The band will livestream their May 30th performance on Facebook and Youtube.
