On 8 December 1979, The Cure did their first live TV special at Théâtre de l'Empire in Paris. It was broadcasted later on 16 December 1979 in the programme Chorus.

Originally it was scheduled on 3 December 1979 as the part of Future Pastimes tour, but it looks like this show has been postponed one week later, when The Cure moved to Europe for their first European tour.
