It has today been announced that The Cure are releasing a double album of their headline live performance at Bestival which took place earlier this year.
The double album will be called ‘THE CUREBESTIVAL LIVE 2011’ and will be available to buy as a two disc CD or digital download from the 5th December 2011 through Sunday Best Recordings. Proceeds from the sale are to be donated to Isle Wight Youth Trust.
“The Lovecats”, “The Caterpillar”, “Close To Me”, “Friday I’m In Love”, “Lullaby”, “The Hungry Ghost” and “Boys Don’t Cry” are a few of the thirty-two classic tracks included in this fantastic double CD.
Robert Smith lead singer of The Cure commented: “We had such a great time in the Isle of Wight at Bestival that we wanted to release this show as a way of thanking fans and islanders alike. Bestival is the best!”
And founder of Bestival Rob da Bank added: “Since I was 15 and backcombing my hair, donning my sister’s eyeliner and singing the lyrics to ‘A Forest’ into my hairbrush I’ve had an unhealthy fascination with The Cure. To say it reached its peak at Bestival 2011 is an understatement, as after seven years of pestering I not only landed The Cure to headline Bestival, but now appear to be putting out one of their live records on my own record label. How strange!
For any of the 50,000 who were at Bestival and saw all or some of the two and a half hour set, this live album will transport you back. For fans of The Cure who didn’t make it I know this will be a legendary addition to your Cure collection!
