Don’t forget… tomorrow, THE CURE plays at Blaisdell Arena!
Legendary band The Cure plays for the first time in Honolulu, at a show that’s got the whole town abuzz.
Formed in 1976, The Cure has attained the status of being one of the most popular alternative rock bands of all time, responsible for numerous hits including “Just Like Heaven,” “Lovesong,” “Friday I’m in Love,” “Why Can’t I Be You” and “Boys Don’t Cry.”
The Cure is widely credited with being one of the bands that started the goth movement in the late 1970s and giving rise to the gothic rock genre, along with bands like Joy Division, Siouxie and the Banshees and Bauhaus. Although the goth genre is the one the iconic band is most often associated with, it’s not entirely fair to classify them as such. The Cure has many moods, from gloomy and tormented to psychedelic to upbeat pop.
Although the lineup has changed throughout the years, frontman, vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith is still in charge, and the dark aesthetic of The Cure remains in full effect.
(With special guests Clones of the Queen)
Tuesday, July 30 at 7:30 p.m.
$41.05-$274.05, Tickets available from Ticketmaster.com
