THE CURE / Bestival Live 2011 [2011]

Recorded at the 4 day music festival, Bestival on The Isle Of Wight in England, The Cure release their first live album since 1993's Show/Play.
Covering the entire 35 year career Bestival Live 2011 is the ultimate live album for fans of the band. Clocking in at nearly 2½ hours, this double disc album might be a bit much for the casual listener but isn't quite enough for the hardcore fan, as it misses out on a song here and a song there...but you can't please 'em all, can you?
With near-perfect sound quality and a massive set-list, Bestival Live 2011 perfectly captures this legendary group at the top of their game in a live setting.
