Seminal post-punk act The Cure have announced that they will be returning to Australian shores for Vivid 2019. It will be the bands first time in Australia since their incredible headlining slot at Splendour In The Grass 2016. The band will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their record Disintegration. They will be playing four shows at Sydney’s Opera House in May.

“Vivid LIVE is a wonderful international event,” Robert Smith has shared. “Our Reflections shows in 2011 were truly memorable experiences, and with the excitement surrounding those early album performances in mind, we are more than delighted to be announcing our return in May 2019 to present the world premiere of Disintegration – 30th Anniversary.”
