Robert Smith's seminal gloom-pop combo play one of their sporadic London gigs, which generally last upwards of two hours. True, they're not known for being a dynamic live act, but the quality of their material – 'Boys Don't Cry', 'The Love Cats', 'Friday I'm In Love' and loads more, all bellowed back by a fiercely adoring crowd who've nostalgically backcombed what's left of their hair – means The Cure are still well worth catching after all these years. There'll be plenty of Christmas cheer at these two December shows.
