Watch The Cure Play ‘A Man Inside My Mouth’ Live for the First Time Ever
Other rarities on the setlist hadn't been played live in decades
The Cure played some deep, deep cuts Sunday night during their first of three Christmas shows at London’s Eventim Apollo, as several of the songs they played hadn’t been performed live in decades. Or ever, for that matter, as last night marked the live debut of “A Man Inside My Mouth,” a wonky and warbly B-side from 1985’s The Head On The Door. The band also played “The Empty World” and “Wailing Wall” from 1984’s The Top for the first time in 30 years, and Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me’s “Hey You!!!” and “Like Cockatoos” for the first time in ten years.
Audience members snagged videos of some of the rarities, and you can see “The Empty World” above and “Wailing Wall” below, alongside a short clip of “A Man Inside My Mouth.”
