The Cure play Disintegration 30th anniversary concert: Video + Setlist

on May 25, 2019, 4:19pm

This weekend, The Cure kicked off their five-show run at Sydney’s Vivid LIVE festival celebrating the 30th anniversary of Disintegration. As expected, the sets came packed with all the classics, all the deep cuts, and a number of live debuts.

Robert Smith and Co. opened the show with a full performance of Disintegration, which included the first performances of the album’s two final tracks — “Homesick” and “Untitled” — in 17 years.

The eight-song encore included the live debuts of several B-Side such as “No Heart”, “Esten”, “Babble”, “Fear of Ghosts”, “Out of Mind”, “Delirious Night”, as well as their cover of Wendy Waldman’s “Pirate Ships”.
