The Cure’s Final ‘Reflections’ Shows

The Cure announces the final dates for its “Reflections” show featuring the Brit band playing its first three albums from start-to-finish.

First performed at Australia’s Vivid Festival in 2010, “Reflections” delves in to The Cure’s early years as the band plays its 1979 album Three Imaginary Boys, 1980’s Seventeen Seconds and the 1981 release Faith.

The performances will include Cure members past and present with “The Cure Trio” made up of Robert Smith, Simon Gallup and Jason Cooper playing Three Imaginary Boys; “The Cure Quartet” adding Roger O’Donnell for Seventeen Seconds and “The Cure Quintet” welcoming past member Laurence Tolhurst for Faith.

Now band members are ready to put “Reflections” behind them, but not before giving the concept a final run, scheduling one show at London’s Royal Albert Hall for Nov. 15 and concerts on both U.S. coasts, hitting Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre Nov. 21-23 and New York City’s Beacon Theatre Nov. 25-27.
