The treatment first performed in Prague in August 1990 as the first Western rock band since the fall of the regime, even before the Rolling Stones. The last time they came to France was five years ago.
For the larger Czech audience to date, they performed the previous year as the main stars of the Colors of Ostrava festival, on the stage on which they spent almost two and a half hours.
They performed the most songs on the album Disintegration, which sold 3 million copies in the late 1980s.
The pale face of frontman Robert Smith also emphasized makeup in Ostrava, his hair was up, eye shadow and red lipstick on his face.
“In nuances and romantic metaphors, he tells how a person, troubled by doubts, desires, anxieties or remorse, enters states of fragility. When he is alone, different, prominent, ‘abnormal’, unpretentious, emotionally or socially isolated, and therefore illegible, incomprehensible to others ”, Aktuálně.cz wrote concerning the concert.
The site also reported that The Cure, with fees in the order of hundreds of thousands of euros, became the most expensive artists in the history of the Ostrava event.
Next year, the group will end thirteen years of creative hiatus since releasing their last album. Released in 2008, it was called 4:13 Dream. According to frontman Robert Smith, the new album The Cure will also be the last the band will record.
Guitarist Reeves Gabrels has joined The Cure since 4:13. The group as a whole were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, having returned to the English festival at Glastonbury after a quarter of a century, and given a giant concert in front of the cameras in Hyde Park in London.
This year the line-up briefly changed again when longtime bassist Simon Gallup announced his departure in August. He had been a member of The Cure since 1979.
Last month, however, Gallup wrote on Facebook that he had gone nowhere and is also due to attend the next concert in Prague. Beside him, vocalist Robert Smith and guitarist Reeves Gabrels will be on stage drummer Jason Cooper and keyboardist Roger O’Donnell.
