The Cure will be reaching the milestone of 40 years performing under the name chosen by founding member Lol Tolhurst next year. To celebrate Robert Smith and Co. have already put on sale theric official 2018 Calendar.
Previously being called Malice, the band had their first full blown concert on December 20, 1976—and almost exactly two years later, after changing their name from Easy Cure, to The Cure, the Crawley based band released their first single Killing An Arab (inspired by The Stranger by Albert Camus).
From that point on the Three Imaginary Boys would recruit old faces and new to join their ranks over the next several decades, going on to release some of most iconic music in post-punk, goth, and alternative rock, eventually becoming one of the most unique and beloved bands of all time—so much in fact, that the band cheekily refer to themselves as a “Religious Place of Worship” on their official facebook page.
