The Cure’s festivals webcasts, summer 2012

The Cure have played many festivals this summer and many of those have been shown on TV (or via web-casts) and, inevitably, have made their way onto YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

And with Porl Thompson’s departure from the Cure earlier this year, there is a new “guest” on the tour in the form of Reeves Gabrels.  Reeves has played before with the Cure, playing guitar on the 1997 single “Wrong Number” (and there are several other collaborations between Robert & Reeves).

You will probably know Reeves as part of Tin Machine with David Bowie.  Reeves has an edgy, gritty guitar sound, and it really adds something to the sound, and definitely different form Porl’s more psychedelic sound.

Audio only versions of many of the festival shows are available on the Summer Cure 2012 blog.
