The Cure

Critics' pick
Leave it to the doomed romantics of the Cure to bring a sense of extravagance to the seemingly obligatory custom of playing classic LPs live. Known as “Reflections,” the goth-rock legends’ current show presents in their entirety the Cure’s first three full-length albums: Three Imaginary Boys, from 1979; Seventeen Seconds, from 1980; and Faith, from 1981. What’s more, a different lineup plays each album, with a bare-bones trio eventually growing into a synthed-up quintet; the final ensemble even includes Lol Tolhurst, a founding member of the band who last played with the Cure in the Disintegration days.
