    On Friday night, The Cure returned to the stage for their first performance in 2014, appearing at London’s Royal Albert Hall as part of this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust Benefit. Despite six months off, the band showed little rust, as they tore through a 45-song set that was full of rarities and live debuts.

    Among the highlights: the live debut of Disintegration-era B-Side “2 Late”, the first performance of Mixed Up B-Side “Harold and Joe” since 1991, and the first performance of “Jupiter Crash” since 2004. They also played “Freakshow” for the first time in six years during the second of three encores. See the full setlist below.
