As reported by Consequence Of Sound, like-minded bands Interpol, Slowdive, Ride, Goldfrapp, Editors and the Twilight Sad will help commemorate the Cure's "40 imaginary years" on Saturday, July 7, 2018, as part of the British Summer Time Hyde Park festival series, with more opening acts to be announced. The concert is being promoted as the Cure's only European gig of 2018—and the band's anniversary set is reported to be a lengthy, two-hour engagement. Surely, this is an event not to be missed by fans of Robert Smith and co.
