The goth rockers announce details of a documentary movie which will celebrate the band’s long-running career in the music industry
The Cure will release a documentary film next year to mark their 40th anniversary in the music industry. The feature-length film will tie in with the band’s Hyde Park show in 2018, which also forms part of the celebration.
The legendary British goth rock band will team up with long-term collaborator Tim Pope, who has directed the band’s music videos since 1982, including the iconic Close To Me and Friday I’m In Love. Pope took to Twitter to confirm that he and the band were reuniting for the project, and that work on the film has already begun.
“So, 2018 will see me collaborating with Robert on a feature-length, chronological documentary of The Cure’s history from the 1970s via present day to the future. Robert himself will tell the story and this will work alongside other events for the band’s 40-year celebration,” wrote Pope.
Tickets are already on sale for the British Summer Time Hyde Park show, which takes place on 7 July 2018. The show includes special guests Interpol, Goldfrapp, Editors, Ride, Slowdive, and The Twilight Sad.
