    The Cure

    Typical of Robert Smith that. He's been full on anti-establishment since the band started. Glad to see he hasn't changed.
  2. The Cure x7 - Various times 06-18. Great live band. The Killers - Liberty Stadium in 2018. Average, but might see again. George Ezra - Seeing him tomorrow in Birmingham Vampire Weekend X3 - Reading 09, Glasto 10 and at their own gig in 2012 ish. Good Festival band. Sigrid - She is supporting Ezra tomorrow. Interpol - Saw them at BST last year. Will see again. Friendly Fires - Part of the NME tour in 2009. Thought they were utter pish.

    2019 Headliners

    The Cure played on a Sunday in 1995. The other headliners that weekend were Oasis and Pulp (ŕeplaced Stone Roses). Did The Cure scare the locals back then?

    He hasn't been a part of the band since 1984. It is a very sad time, but I fail to see why it would effect their summer festival shows.

    2019 Headliners

    Personally, I think it is pretty average, not bad; definitely better than last year. One good headliner (Foos), One Average (1975) and two poor (Post Malone and Twenty-One Pilots). It suits the R+L demographic and that is fine but it would be underwhelming if each of bands headlined Glastonbury over a period of 2-3 years, nevermind all in the same year. I'd rather have the (rumoured) Glastonbury headliners than the ones at R+L though. Post Malone? I'd have a lot more respect if he performed rather than basically mime.

    If people think Glastonbury have an underwhelming m set of headliners then they need to look at the likes of R+L, IOW and TRNSMT.

    No worries mate. Thanks for clarifying a bit. Hopefully you heard right!

    I meant do we actually have confirmation that Robert Smith is actually appearing on R6 on Monday.... The original poster wasn't sure if that was what they had heard.

    Do we know if this is actually happening? Or is it just Japanese Whispers?

    The Cure

    They did a similar thing with the Reflections tour in 2011. Played a few nights in Australia then played the same show at the Royal Albert Hall and selected U.S dates in November.

    Don't think The Cure is that much of an odd choice really. They sold out BST in record time last year, sold out arenas in 2016 and headlined R+L in 2012. They are doing a festival tour this year where they are headlining most of the big euro fests.

    2019 Headliners

    Cure Info summary: Initial rumour came from someone who had talked to their bassist's daughter. The daughter had claimed the band were headlining/playing Glastonbury. Neil then chased this up and one of his reliable sources said that The Cure were headlining Glastonbury. The Cure then announced 20 European Headlining festivals/shows for 2019. Cure's dates also suggest they will be playing/headlining Glastonbury as they have a gap in their tour on the Saturday and Sunday. They currently have no 'proper' UK festival show, they are playing glasgow summer sessions but that is more a one-off gig, like BST.

    I went to see The Killers last year at a stadium gig and the crowd was average other than Brightside and Human.
