The Cure at Vivid Live in Sydney?

Interesting story/rumor going around, first posted at Mess and Noise, then picked up by Music Feeds & Faster Louder. Are The Cure playing special shows at the Sydney Opera House, as part of Vivid Live in Sydney, Australia next month? to say that you can expect more on this very soon.
And standard disclaimer - It's not official until/unless it's announced on the official site. (Thanks Curt, Jo and Aaron)

On Twitter, some accounts you might want to follow...just in case - @VividLIVE, @VividSydney, @SOHnews, @triplej, @FasterLouder, @musicfeeds, @themusicnetwork, @modularpeople.

More Cure Print auctions to help Japan

"I'm donating a couple more prints. Thanks to your help I have raised over $400 in Cure prints alone. 100% of that has gone directly to Japan relief efforts :)
I have two more 8x10 photos to donate. They are set at a minimum donation of $25. One is of Robert and one of Simon." (Thanks sad giraffe)

Snow & Voices cover 'Disintegration'

Disintegration by Snow & Voices

I posted this a few days ago on the Cure Covers page & the CoF Twitter, but I love it too much to not put it on the front page, so here it is - Snow & Voices with their beautiful cover of 'Disintegration'. You can download it for free, but if you like it, why not buy it and help support the band? Only 99 cents at Amazon. Also posted at Slicing Up Eyeballs and 17 Dots.
(Thanks Dresden Black)

Robert on 1st Wave all week...but old stuff

The plot thickens...Robert Smith will be Richard Blade's guest all next week on Sirius XM's 1st Wave show. Not 100% sure if this is new or a repeat of the 2009 stuff, but given the situation, I would think this is new. Everyone excited yet?
(Thanks @RoxyFerryCure)

Update: Richard's show airs from 3-9pm eastern. You can sign up for a free 30 day trial, and listen online, but just make sure you read the details. You will be charged if you don't call and cancel your trial before the 30 days are up.

Update 2 (04/25/11): Thanks to Slicing Up Eyeballs for getting the final word on this. It's just old interview clips.
