Today marks the 30th anniversary of The Cure’s renowned 1989 album, Disintegration. To honour the occasion, The Cure have added a fifth performance to their Vivid LIVE residency at the Sydney Opera House, which will be live streamed in full.
The concert will take place on May 30th, and will see the legendary rock band playing Disintegration in full. The performance, which will be live streamed worldwide on Facebook and YouTube, is directed by British filmmaker and the band’s collaborator, Nick Wickham.

“We look forward to celebrating the anniversary of this special album with you all,” frontman Robert Smith explained in a statement. “And remember: this album was mixed to be played loud… so turn it up!”
In February, The Cure opened up a ballot entry system where fans could get tickets to their Disintegration show, and now those entrants who signed up to the original ballot and were unsuccessful will be once again entered into getting tickets for the final show.
