    The Cure Play First Three Albums Live

    Teased hair, grown-up Goths in black clothes everywhere. The Cure's epic performance of its first three albums -- Three Imaginary Boys, Seventeen Seconds and Faith -- Tuesday night at Australia's Sydney Opera House as part of the Vivid Festival brought out its most passionate fans. One couple paid $3000 apiece for front-row seats. It was the best kind of (Addams) family reunion, 2000-people strong, a triumphant, three-and-a-half-hour set that was tight, efficient and high on nostalgia without lingering on what once was. The Cure's legacy has never been in question; their influence over bands like Interpol, My Chemical Romance, and the Rapture is clear. And they've never really stopped touring -- they've played live shows with astonishing consistency nearly every year since they started.
