  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.
      134
    • More than likely - Depending on strength of the clashes on other stages.
      204
    • Unlikely - Know a couple of songs but there would probably be something else on you'd watch instead.
      140
    • No - Never been a fan so will definitely be elsewhere.

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

Ah good. Felt weird doing the Anniversary only in Australia. Thanks for the research, usually do the checking myself :P

Saw them in 2012, and didn't enjoy them at all, so will probably watch something else, or get an early night!

No problem, I scrambled to find something to suggest that it wasn't exclusive. I've found other articles that suggest that this is just the first set of these shows.

"The Cure will premiere the global celebrations of the 30th anniversary of their biggest-selling record Disintegration with four concerts at the Sydney Opera House for the annual Vivid Live festival."

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.

I’m hoping The Cure will be a big highlight, I can’t see there being much else to get really excited about band wise. Obviously being there is more than enough but the line up I’m sure will be flat and uninspiring. Most festivals have been a let down this year.

Do Bob and the lads ever do A Letter to Elise? That's a jam.

The MTV Unplugged version, oooooft. An absolute beauty.

Boom. Thrilled.

How long a set do we reckon they'll get? Does any headliner ever get given longer than 2 hours? (How long did Bruce get?)

Edit: Just checked and Springsteen got 25 songs in. I'd be chuffed if the Cure managed the same!

So, provided I get tickets, I get to end Glastonbury seeing my favourite band on the Pyramid, with some of my favourite people.

Could possibly be a life highlight, so excited 😄

So glad it's finally confirmed and they're closing! I reckon they'll get two hours so however many songs they can manage in that time. Don't think we will be seeing the usual sized setlist we get from The Cure but saying that they were given three hours at R&L a couple of years ago...

I'm with you there! No ticket as yet (must be positive), The Cure playing the night before my 42nd birthday would actually be the meaning of life.

Very happy they are headlining

Aye. 

I know we expected the info to come good but I'm v happy too. Had kinda been lost in all the excitement of all the new acts announced. 

Now I just hope they're not Sunday so I can see Janelle Monae. 

Have we had any confirmation on the days of Killers / The Cure yet?

Cure v Janelle is a bitch but I saw The Cure at BST last year and haven't seen Janelle since 2014 so she wins for me.

Janelle for me too at this point, but could see me switching at last moment as have never seen the Cure!

When they headlined in 95 Sunday was perfect for them. Few pop songs and singalongs is ideal when you're a bit shagged out at the end of the Sunday. Heartwarming stuff.
