The Cure Play Give Sydney 3 Hours Rock History

by Paul Cashmere on July 26, 2016

in Live,News

The Cure’s Australian tour is underway with their first stadium show at Sydney’s Qudos Arena on Monday night.

The Cure do not skimp on songs delivering 36 songs over three plus hours for Sydney.

The Cure setlist list is equal parts deep cuts and hits. The first part of the show is designed for the die-hard long-time fans who know every song off every album. For them 18 tracks dating back to 1981 and not so obvious album tracks are what is in-store.

For the Cure-Curious fan, encore three and four is your greatest hits with encore one even dropping in a new and unreleased song ‘It Can Never Be The Same’ giving fans a peak at what is to come.
