The Cure "Reflections": Vivid Live 2011

While punk was still reverberating through popular culture, The Cure's unique blend of moody, atmospheric and unforgettable songs pioneered a new era in popular music and marked them for greatness from the start.

One of the world's most enduringly influential bands, The Cure have today been confirmed to perform for Vivid LIVE at The Sydney Opera House, curated by Modular's Stephen "Pav" Pavlovic.

The Cure will be appearing onstage with a uniquely evolving line-up of band members past and present.

The Cure "Reflections" will see the band perform their first three albums live, in their entirety, in an extraordinary concert experience exclusively for Vivid LIVE on May 31 and June 1.

From the punchy, offbeat, starkly unadorned songs of Three Imaginary Boys, through the increasingly shadowy and quixotic pieces of Seventeen Seconds, to the singular melancholic grandeur of Faith, this is a rare chance to experience the origins of one of popular music's greatest stories.

In a coup for Vivid LIVE, this will be the first, and only, time The Cure perform these albums in succession.

Tickets go on sale May 12. They're going to go super fast. Make sure you're signed up to the Modular Newsletter for updates.

While you're waiting, here are just three songs from those incredible albums.


From Three Imaginary Boys: 10:15 on a Saturday night


From Seventeen Seconds: A Forest


From Faith: Primary
