The Cure concert documentary set for summer release
Director Tim Pope has confirmed The Cure's 2018 Hyde Park concert film will be released this summer.
The director announced plans for a documentary about the band revolving around their 40th anniversary. Just last month Pope teased a photo fans speculate is from the film, showing what appears to be a silhouette of frontman Robert Smith.
Now, the film focusing on the concert is set to be released this summer.
"Yes, it’s true what Robert has announced - that our film of Hyde Park will hit cinemas in early summer," Pope wrote on Twitter.
Pope previously said the film will be led by Smith as a chronological telling of the band's history from the 1970s to now.
The director also explained the documentary will include never before seen material from Smith's personal collection, including interviews, bootleg footage and rare performances.
The Cure are also currently working on their first new album in 10 years.
