The Cure have announced plans to perform their first three albums – 1979's Three Imaginary Boys, 1980's Seventeen Seconds and 1981's Faith – in their entirety at a series of concerts in London, Los Angeles and New York City. The band previously played these albums in full at their "Reflections" show at the Vivid Festival in Sydney earlier this year. According to the band's website, these seven concerts will be the last times the records will be performed live.
