Finding a cure for The Cure

Although Cure fans have been disappointed recently with the firing of Perry Bamonte and Roger O'Donnell, time to a rejoice. Porl Thompson is rejoining The Cure for their festival shows this summer. So it appears that this will be a keyboard-less lineup, unless they have a tech/roadie playing the keys during the show.

So this means that a stronger The Cure will be playing Benicassim in August!


I'm dying to go back to Benicassim for this year's festival. I think it's too late to plan a trip now - airfare is around $1100. But look at this lineup! The Cure and Oasis headlining (I'll ignore Keane), Doves, LCD Soundsystem and a DFA night, Ladytron, !!!, Radio 4, Kasabian, The Tears, Underworld, Layo and Bushwacka, Kaiser Chiefs, The Wedding Present, Maximo Park. This is ridiculous.
