From NME: "The organiser of the Reading And Leeds Festivals has spoken about this year's event and how pleased he is to have secured The Cure and Foo Fighters as his headliners.
Speaking to NME in a video which you can see at the top of the
page (Note: which in typical NME fashion, is actually at the bottom of the page), Melvin Benn has promised that The Cure will be "a real treat" and
has said he regards securing them as a real coup.
Asked about booking Robert Smith and co, Benn said: "We're really
pleased that we got The Cure to play. Robert Smith is not somebody who
just wants to play for the sake of playing; it has to be the right time
to play. They're a hugely important band to what has been British rock
and roll music. It'll be a real treat."
