Well, the Sydney Morning Herald leaked it early...The Cure will play 'Three Imaginary Boys', 'Seventeen Seconds', and 'Faith', in their entirety, each night, as part of Vivid Live at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall. They will be joined for part of the show by Lol Tolhurst and Roger O'Donnell!
A quote from Robert in the NME: "We have played a lot of memorable shows in Australia, we first performed here in 1980, and this will be our seventh trip – but it will be our first time onstage in the Sydney Opera House," said singer Robert Smith. "We want to do something unique to mark the occasion … combining The Cure members past and present in a live filmed interpretation of our first three albums. Feels to me like it should do the trick."

rogerodonnell - Alright thats it, Im off out to buy some new black clothes... Sadly no Helmut Lang!....
rogerodonnell....and a new tambourine....
Hahaha...Roger reminds me that he has an upcoming gig at WGT, which he says is the biggest goth festival in Europe, and that the tambourine is just a present for his brother's birthday. And I suppose that his googling about the water flow in Australia is due to his new plumbing business in Oz. : )
