The Cure Anniversary 1978-2018: Live in Hyde Park
At 8pm on Saturday, July 7th, 2018 in Hyde Park, a big green space in London, The Cure took to the stage to celebrate 40 years of playing live. Around 65,000 people joined in the fun. To capture this second historic event in all its technicolor glory, the band turned to the man responsible for most of The Cure's iconic videos, as well as their award-winning 1986 film In Orange—long-time collaborator and maverick director, Tim Pope.
The performance Tim Pope filmed that perfect summer evening was one of the most memorable concerts of The Cure's long career. As giant-sized screens danced, glitched, and fizzled with images of raging seas, shimmering webs, and broken hearts, The Cure flowed, floated, pushed, pounded, and powered their way through a 29-song, 135-minute spectacular on a spellbinding trip through four decades of alternative popular music.
