The Cure to release documentary film to commemorate 40th anniversary

The Cure will release a documentary film next year to coincide with their 40th anniversary.

Following the announcement that the band will play a special show at British Summer Time Hyde Park in 2018, they will also star in a feature-length film about their four decades in the industry.

Tim Pope, the band’s long-term video director, took to his Twitter page to reveal that he and lead singer Robert Smith had started work on the film.

He wrote: “So, 2018 will see me collaborating with Robert on a feature-length, chronological documentary of The Cure’s history from the 1970s via present day to the future. Robert himself will tell the story and this will work alongside other events for the band’s 40-year celebration.

“The film to which I will bring my own style of jiggery-pokery will use as well as 'old favourites' a cornucopia of material from Robert’s collection which has never been seen before: Super-8; interviews; bootlegs; rare performances; behind-the-scenes, blah. Updates ’as and when’."

Earlier this week, The Cure announced they will take to the stage at British Summer Time Hyde Park on Saturday, July 7, 2018 with special guests Interpol, Goldfrapp, Ride, Editors, Slowdive and The Twilight Sad. 

Fanclub and Barclaycard presales opened on Tuesday with tickets going on general sale at 9am on Friday.

The band join Roger WatersBruno MarsMichael Buble and Eric Clapton as confirmed headliners for next year's sixth edition of BST Hyde Park. AEG Presents has also launched the All Points East festival in London's Victoria Park for 2018.
