The Cure are headlining Lollapalooza on August 4th, the first time the band has played the festival in its 22-year history. Perry Farrell, Lollapalooza founder, commented on The Cure’s long-awaited appearance: “The first time I ran into Robert Smith of the Cure was 1997 in New York City,” “We were both going into the same club; and it was Halloween. I was dressed as myself and so was he. I am so happy the Cure have finally arrived at Lolla in Chicago!”
We’re hoping that the band includes “Primary” in Sunday night’s set list. It was released in 1981 as a single from the album Faith, and is just one The Cure’s many iconic tracks.
