Post-punk, new-wave, goth or just good old rock 'n' roll, whatever you want to call them, The Cure remain one of the most influential groups to emerge out of the 1980s. Led by the iconic attitude, voice and hair of singer Robert Smith, the band's story may have begun almost 35 years ago, but last year's appearance at the Reading Festival had all the power and intensity of a group still firmly in its preening pomp.

If the 1983 album Pornography and singles like the irrepressible 'Lovecats' represented a stylistic change of tone from their sombre beginnings, as the hair got bigger and the make-up bolder, so the hits followed. In that decade alone, seven albums were released including the landmark Desintegration and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, the former being remastered and re-released in 2010, opening up the band to a whole new audience in the process.

The aforementioned Reading Festival performance marked a peak in 2012's tour of some of the biggest music festivals in the world, ensuring that a first return trip to Brazil in 17 years is not only going to be a sell out, but one of the year's biggest musical events in Rio de Janeiro.
