the cure in hd from bestival

The Cure, playing live for just the third time this year, headlined Bestival over the weekend at Isle of Wight. Robert Smith was once again joined by estranged keyboardist Roger O’Donnell, although guitarist Porl Thompson was conspicuously absent.

While not quite as epic as the “Reflections” sets at the Vivid Live Festival in Sydney a few months ago, The Cure did churn out 32 songs Saturday night. You can check out the full set list below, as well as watch the 6 tunes that were broadcast on Sky Arts. Visit slicingupeyeballs or chainofflowers for even more coverage.
