Chorus (TV)



PLAYLIST

A Forest, Three Imaginary Boys, Killing An Arab


INFO

On 8 December 1979, The Cure did their first live TV special at Theatre de l'Empire in Paris. They played songs like Killing An Arab, Boys Don't Cry, Jumping Someone Else's Train, Three Imaginary Boys, A Forest (this time called as At Night) and Seventeen Seconds. Unfortunately, only three songs were broadcasted. 9 mins

There is an advert published in NME (24/11/1979) promoting this show as the part of the Future Pastimes tour scheduled on 3 December 1979. But it looks like this show has been postponed one week later, when The Cure moved to Europe for their first European tour.

Also, song Killing An Arab was broadcasted again on 15 January 1993 in the programme called Culture Rock on French TV channel M6.

This show has been released on unofficial DVD entitled Glasgow 1984.

Just for fun... "Three Imaginary Boys" without Matthieu Hartley, he is sitting there, reading some newspapers.
