Watch The Cure's Robert Smith Perform a Rare Acoustic Solo Set
Thanks to some technical difficulties at Spain’s Bilbao BBK Live festival last night, the crowd was treated to a rare solo set from the Cure’s Robert Smith.
Performing before The Cure’s headlining show in an effort to kill a little time, the frontman sang acoustic renditions of “Three Imaginary Boys,” “Fire in Cairo” and “Boys Don’t Cry.” Smith seemed to be enjoying himself, telling the crowd between songs, “Don’t applaud me or you’ll give me ideas.” But he closed by saying, “That’s why it’s The Cure and not Robert Smith,” reminding the audience that it was a very rare occurrence.
You can check out a video of the performance taken from the webcast below.
