Video of the Day | Throwback Thurs / Lollapalooza Preview Edition: The Cure

Share this post

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.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
