Robert Smith's band was formed in 1976, played its first show in 1978.
The Cure first music placed the band as part of the post-punk and new wave movements, but during the early 1980s, the band's increasingly dark and tormented music was a staple of the emerging gothic rock genre. In the middle of the 80's Smith began to place a pop sensibility into the band's music and their popularity increased as the decade wore on, with songs like Just Like Heaven, Lovesong, Friday I'm in Love and Lullaby.
The Cure has released 13 studio albums, several concert films, a few live albums, some soundtrack songs, more than 40 singles. And a couple of box sets. A couple of books. A Greatest Hits thing, a handful of covers and various other stuff.
The band has performed around 1,500 shows to date.
