The Cure / Live In Japan

The Cure / <em>Live In Japan</em>

The Top is not an especially well-regarded Cure record, but if there’s one positive, it’s that the world tour in support of it yielded this live performance at the Nakano Sun Plaza in Tokyo in October 1984. It was recorded and released as the Live In Japan VHS tape in 1986, the band’s first live video release. That VHS made its way to DVD, and finally to full-length stream on YouTube. Sure, the set list is Top-heavy, but there’s also some great old stuff in there, and the backstage footage is… something.
