MySpace Music Present Secret Show Concert With The Cure

MySpace Music held a special Secret Show concert by The Cure on Saturday, December 13, at the Troubadour Club in Los Angeles. The performance took place exclusively for the MySpace users, in which the community was notified via MySpace of the free concert only 24 hours before the show occurred. Many of the band's most avid followers came out for the incredible event! In addition to the hundreds of fans that lined up to see The Cure, celebrities in attendance included Kirsten Dunst, Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, Eliza Dushku, Lukas Haas, The Killers, All American Rejects, AFI, Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Hayley Williams (Paramore) and Trey Parker (South Park).

Cure posterThe Cure first formed in southern England in 1976 as Easy Cure. In 1978 the 'Easy' was dropped, and The Cure was signed to the Fiction label. In May 1979 their debut album Three Imaginary Boys was released to great acclaim. Other landmark Cure albums include Pornography (1982), The Head on the Door (1985), Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me (1987),Disintegration (1989), Wish (1992), Wild Mood Swings (1996), the Grammy-nominated Bloodflowers (2000) and their last full length release, the self-titled set The Cure (2004). 2006 saw the Suretone/Geffen release of Festival 2005, an award winning 5.1 DVD featuring 30 songs, shot by fans, band members and professionals during the summer of 2005's European festival run. Earlier this year The Cure embarked on a 59 date world tour and over the summer released four singles leading up to the release of 4:13 Dream. At one point all four singles - "The Only One," "Freakshow," "Sleep When I'm Dead," and "The Perfect Boy" - appeared in the top 20 of the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart!

The Cure recently released their thirteenth studio album 4:13 Dream to rave reviews with People Magazine giving the album four stars stating "a damn near classic Cure album."Led as always by lead singer/guitarist Robert Smith, the Cure line-up comprises longtime members bass player Simon Gallup, drummer Jason Cooper and, back in the band for a third time, guitarist Porl Thompson.
