The Cure have announced a string of performances in the UK and the US, which will see them play their first three albums, ‘Three Imaginary Boys’, ‘Seventeen Seconds’, and ‘Faith’, in full and back to back.

Going by the name ‘Reflections’, the performance was premiered at the Vivid Festival in Sydney earlier this year, and according to the band, this run of gigs will be the last chance fans will have to catch it. Each album will see the band expand by one member during the gig, with Robert Smith, bassist Simon Gallup, and drummer Jason Cooper the only members to perform throughout the entire show. They will then be joined by Roger O’Donnell on keyboard for ‘Seventeen Seconds’, plus founder member Lol Tolhurst on keyboards and percussion for ‘Faith’.

Before six dates in LA and New York, the band will play a one-off show at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 15 Nov. Tickets for that will go on sale at 9am on Friday.
