'Trilogy' on ARTE tonight

From Le Blog TV News: Three for the price of one! Time to a mythical concert, post-punk group THE CURE interpreter entirety Pornography and Disintegration Bloodflowers albums.

Different in shape, this trilogy of albums have in common their melancholy and introspective focus. Them together in a big hypnotic celebration seemed obvious.

It was in Berlin at Tempodrom, the idea came to fruition in 2002 the program:. Unforgettable three-hour show, punctuated by the deep and soulful voice of Robert Smith.

Do not miss the night from Saturday to Sunday 2 August 3. From 00:40 on ARTE. (Thanks David)
