Thanks to Craig @COF for breaking this rumor this morning.
Are the Cure playing the Stunning Sydney Opera House between May 27th and June 5th?
We shall see, but Mess and Noise, a local Sydney music magazine/site seems to think so.
There are strong indications that The Cure will be imminently announced as the “secret” act for Vivid LIVE.
Now, we know what you’re thinking, they’re not on Modular, right? But the news has been gaining enough momentum on Twitter and the M+N discussion board for us to think it’s more than just a few posters stirring the pot. Not only that, but event curator Stephen “Pav” Pavlovic played The Cure’s ‘A Forest’ on FBi Radio yesterday among a clutch of tracks by Vivid LIVE acts including Azari & III, The Crystal Ark, Wu Lyf and new Modular signing Dom. Make of that what you will.
More have been picking up the story:
But with no confirmation from the big man, we can just dream......
Who's in the band?
What are they going to play?
Does this have anything to do with the JJJ Faith petition?
Why was Craig dropping hints with Faith references?
Does anyone want to donate towards my airfare to Sydney?
So much left unanswered.......
Words from RSX are expected soon, 2011 could get very interesting, very fast.
