  1. 1. If The Cure were to headline would you be there? I'm intrigued due to the varied opinions of them on here.

    • Yes - Definitely, regardless of who else is on the other stages.
      170
    • More than likely - Depending on strength of the clashes on other stages.
      236
    • Unlikely - Know a couple of songs but there would probably be something else on you'd watch instead.
      177
    • No - Never been a fan so will definitely be elsewhere.
      45

If The Cure do headline, will this make them the act with the longest gap between headline sets at Glastonbury?

 

David Bowie left it 29 years.

The point has potentially been hammered home now, but again - gap in between shows in the same country. They've even taken a second stage slot against Foo Fighters to preserve their day off, which I'm sure is welcome news for @Gucci Piggy.

Wow it really seems like The Cure will headline the Other Stage! Legendary.

We're getting a new album then? 

Dunno why I put a question mark on that really: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/8490254/the-cure-robert-smith-new-album-is-coming

Yeah, wonder why you did that.

Don't want new songs at Glasto, they're not gonna be better than the ones they replace.

I've seen The Cure a couple of times - once at Glasto 1995 and then at the Royal Albert Hall a couple of years ago.

Both times I enjoyed the hits but spent the other 95% of the very long sets bored off my tits.

Same for me. I saw them at BST last year. A long set of yawn with the occasion hoorah followed by a 'best of' 10 song encore which was great! No Lovecats tho.

That was pretty much a 'greatest hits' setlist all the way through...

I loved their sets at Glastonbury in 95 and Bestival in 2011. I'll definitely be watching them again if they play Glastonbury 2019.

Honestly puzzled by some of what I read in here. The Cure, other than being IMO one of the greatest bands in our generation (and certainly a legendary band deserving a headline slot), also have loads of hits and they're proven as great festival headliners. They would be an excellent choice. The BST setlist was pretty much as "greatest hits" as they come, minus the Lovecats. This main set "full of yawns" included Lovesong, Just Like Heaven, Pictures of You, Fascination Street, A Forest, Inbetween Days and many others top-drawer Cure hits. If Stormzy is a headliner, The Cure surely are.

There's absolutely no doubt The Cure are tried and tested headliners and an absolutely incredible booking. I get they're not everyone's cup of tea but they're gonna absolutely kill the Pyramid Stage and pretty much the only booking being bandied about that no other band could drag me away from. Last time I saw them at Leeds I didn't really know that many songs and still loved it.

World exclusive... Guess that would pretty much rule out any other location. 

(The moon?) 

Vivid website seems to suggest otherwise, a bit misleading. It says exclusive to Vivid live, but then later states that it's the world premiere and the only Australian engagement which seems to suggest to me there'll be more later on in the year. I'm guessing the UK ones in October/November
