Featuring THREE IMAGINARY BOYS (1979), SEVENTEEN SECONDS (1980) and FAITH (1981) played in their entirety.
Due to overwhelming demand The Cure "REFLECTIONS" show - first experienced in the spring of 2011 at the Vivid Festival in Sydney - will be performed seven more times in November 2011.
"REFLECTIONS" sees an evolving line up of band members past and present playing the first three Cure albums live in their entirety - from the punchy, offbeat, starkly unadorned songs of Three Imaginary Boys (1979), through the increasingly shadowy and quixotic pieces of Seventeen Seconds (1980), to the singular melancholic grandeur of Faith (1981) - in a truly extraordinary concert experience.
Venue Description: Located on the Upper West Side, the 2,894-seat Beacon Theatre is considered to be Radio City Music Hall?s "older sister." The art deco-designed Beacon opened in 1929 as a venue for vaudeville acts, drama, opera and movies and is well regarded for its superior acoustics. In 2006, former President Bill Clinton celebrated his birthday with a private Rolling Stones concert. Past performers there include Queen, Jerry Garcia, Allman Brothers (they have performed there 173 times), Radiohead, Bryan Ferry, and many more. Beacon Theatre is accessible by subway; get the 1/2 train to 72nd Street station.
