MTV is launching MTV Classic (replacing VH1 Classic) on Aug. 1st, bringing back a bunch of their old shows and actually playing videos again. Launch day will include a bunch of Unplugged episodes, with The Cure Unplugged airing at 6:30 PM eastern / 5:30 PM central.
"In its first European recording of "MTV Unplugged," the highly-acclaimed acoustic music series presents an acoustic performance of one of Britain's premier alternative rock bands: The Cure. This performance was shot in a small, intimate studio in London, band members Robert Smith (vocals/guitar), Porl Thompson (guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Boris Williams (drums) and Perry Bamonte (keyboard) perform acoustic renditions of hit songs past and present. Song selections include "Let's Go To Bed," "Just Like Heaven," "Caterpillar," "The Blood," "Boys Don't Cry" and "The Walk." This marks the first episode of the series to be simulcast on the Westwood One Radio Networks. "
