The Cure's Robert Smith flies solo after equipment failure
Fans of new wave group The Cure received a rare treat when front man Robert Smith was forced to play an impromptu acoustic set after the band's equipment failed.
NME reports that band was due to begin their headlining set at Spain's Bilbao BBK Festival when keyboardist Roger O'Donnell's equipment died. Smith didn't miss a beat, launching into acoustic renditions of early hits "Three Imaginary Boys," "Fire In Cairo" and "Boys Don’t Cry."
"While they fix it, I'll sing something to you," he told the audience.
Once the gear was back online, the band returned to the stage and played a typically epic 38-song set list full of hits.
