After a few shorter shows, The Cure are back to their normal show tonight, and are scheduled to play from 22:30 - 01:00. US start times are 4:30 pm eastern, 3:30 pm central, 2:30 pm mountain, 1:30 pm pacific.
Direct Star may have some sort of live or taped coverage, but it's region locked, so not much use to those of us outside of France. They do have a YouTube channel, so maybe something will get posted there. Anyway, doesn't appear to be any live webcast tonight. Will update if that changes.
