The Cure are a unique phenomenon on the music scene, as they have influenced such diverse talents as Adele, Manic Street Preachers, Deftones, Massive Attack, Nine Inch Nails, Rihanna, The Smashing Pumpkins and Mogwai among a myriad of other performers performing in genres light years away from their own. Uniting post-punk, pop, gothic, indie and alternative rock to create a sound that is uniquely their own, during four decades of existence The Cure – for the past seven years comprising Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Jason Cooper, Roger O’Donnell and Reeves Gabrels– have produced 13 studio albums, 40 singles, played 1,500 concerts, and are now teasing the release of a new record.

The Cure are known for great live shows, and their timeless spirit fascinates international media – The Guardian describes them as the band who “maintained their integrity” and which “tore through the 80s the way the Beatles rushed through the 60s, or Bowie the 70s: wildly prolific, constantly changing”. After receiving “Godlike Genius Award” from NME in 2009, the magazine described the show in Hyde Park as “pure perfection”, going on to say that the band is entering their prime years. Rolling Stone described their recent London appearance as having “an intimacy that’s rare for shows of this size”.

Songs by The Cure are an essential part of the soundtracks for some of the most iconic movies in modern culture, while Vogue, Highsnobiety and other respected fashion sources often mention Robert Smith, with his wild black hair, smudged red lipstick and smeared eyeliner, as an immortal fashion inspiration. Aside from his style and voice, Smith’s taste and word are highly respected in the world of culture, as evidenced by the fact that he was invited to act as the 2018 curator of the famous London Southbank Meltdown festival, joining a list of eminent predecessors that include the immortal David Bowie and the internationally acclaimed artist Yoko Ono.
