The film of concerts of the 40th anniversary of The Cure will go to theaters in July
Last year, The Cure celebrated its 40th anniversary in London's Hyde Park, and the images of the event will reach theaters around the world on July 11.

Directed by Timothy Pope, collaborator of many years, The Cure - Anniversary 1978-2018 Live in London, Hyde Park captures the historic occasion of July 7, 2018.

"This was really the perfect way to celebrate the band's 40 years," leader Robert Smith said of the concert in a statement. "It was a fabulous day that none of us will ever forget."

The whole of his career in the concert of more than 65,000 spectators lasted two hours, covering great successes and B-faces alike. The song list of 29 songs was supposedly included in the encore of 10 songs. The opening acts included Slowdive, Interpol, Ride, Goldfrapp, Twilight Sad, and Editors.

"A global release marks the first time we see The Cure on the big screen from 'Orange'," Pope wrote on Twitter, referring to the group's 1987 film, The Cure in Orange. "I recorded it in the wonderful 4K and we mixed on Abbey Road with a glorious surround sound 5: 1".
At the end of 2017, Pope also presented a documentary about The Cure on the social media platform. "Then, 2018 will see me collaborating with Robert in a feature film, a chronological documentary of the history of The Cure from the 1970s to the present," he said. "Robert himself will tell the story and this will work together with other events to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band." 
The newly opened Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will also headline a music festival they curated: the Pasadena Daydream Festival at the Rose Bowl in California on August 31. They selected the lineup, which features acts such as Pixies, Deftones and Mogwai.

"Hyde Park was a fabulous experience, the whole day was really magical," Smith said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone. "And we wanted to create something with a celebratory atmosphere for the summer." 
Concert films have been appearing in a variety of formats. Taylor Swift is among several pop superstars who bring their experiences of film concerts to Netflix. Meanwhile, BTS raised $ 11.7 million at the box office for its concert film at the theater, Love Yourself in Seoul. The Cure is also planning a live broadcast at a 30th-anniversary concert at the Sydney Opera House, where they will play their legendary album Disintegration in its entirety on May 30.

The first album of the band in more than a decade is coming, with Halloween 2019 scheduled as the approximate date of expiration. In an interview with Consequence of Sound, Smith referred to the new collection of songs as "dark" and "incredibly intense."

The year 2019 also marks the 40th anniversary of The Cure's debut album, Three Imaginary Boys. This summer, they will headline the Glastonbury Festival in the middle of a world tour with dates in Europe, Asia, and North America.

Tickets for the concert film will be available from June 6 here.
