"#TheCureNight", An evening dedicated to the legendary band on Sky Arts HD
An entire evening to the British band that has managed to transform the dark music into a mass phenomenon. For #TheCureNight, Sky Arts HD (120 and 400 of Sky) presents Wednesday, July 13 starting at 21:10 two extraordinary premieres to know the long career of The Cure: three decades of activity in constant metamorphosis, between crisis, divisions, replacements, paranoia and depressions, under the spiritual leadership of the charismatic leader Robert Smith.
It starts with "ROCK LEGENDS - THE CURE", the series on the great rock legends. In this episode we will be told through interviews, music, anecdotes and video clips, the story of the trio of Crawley, Sussex, from their birth in 1977, when they were called Easy Cure, up to global success with tours that go on even today. The band originally composed by voice and guitar (Robert Smith), bass (Michael Dempsey) and battery (Lol Tolhurst), imposes itself immediately for its simple style and biting defined post punk. Then the group veers towards a sound more and more dark and intimate, and then get to write some of the British pop masterpieces.
The evening will then continue on Sky Arts HD at 22.10 with the airing of "The Cure at Hurricane Festival", a documentary that proposes the 2012 edition of the festival Scheeßel, Germany, which takes place since 1973. It will be possible to relive exclusive performance of the Cure who performed, among other artists, with some of their best-loved songs: among these, Pictures of you, Love Song and Friday I'm in Love.
