The Robert Smith-led band will celebrate four decades since the release of their debut single ‘Killing An Arab’ next year, while 2019 will mark the 40th anniversary of their debut album ‘Three Imaginary Boys.’

Pope wrote on Twitter earlier this week: “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.”

He continued: “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.”

The Cure are set to play Hyde Park next July with support coming from Interpol, Editors and Goldfrapp.

Tom Petty is headlining one of the British summertime shows this July. Following great trips over the past few years to The Rolling Stones, Neil Young and The Who we’re thrilled to be heading back to one of the great summer events.

These festivals are brilliantly organised and we would highly recommend upgrading to Gold or Diamond VIP packages.

These gives you access to the VIP summer garden area which offers a selection of exclusive bars, restaurants, comfy seating (and toilets without long queues :-))

Diamond VIP includes access to a small pit right in the very front of the main stage.

Gold VIP includes access to a secondary pit just behind the Diamond section

The 1969 gig at London’s Hyde Park will be next in The Rolling Stones ‘From the Vault’ series, From The Vault is a series of live concerts from The Rolling Stones archive which are getting their first official release. `Hyde Park 1969` is the latest addition to the series. It was one of the most highly anticipated gigs of 1969 and it delivered on all the promise and then some. On July 5, 1969, the Rolling Stones hosted their iconic free concert in London`s Hyde Park. Having taken two years off from the road, the show was conceived as the beginning of the band`s big return to the live stage. It was also planned as an introduction of their hot new guitar player, Mick Taylor. The former disciple of British blues legend John Mayall had been inducted into the Stones just a month prior. Over 400,000 delirious fans of all ages gathered into the park for the concert. The Stones` concert in London`s Hyde Park would pay homage to the late Brian Jones and usher in the new and extraordinary era of Mick Taylor (1969-74) as a Rolling Stones member.
