The Cure to play London's Hyde Park

The show marks the band's 40th anniversary.

This special event is part of the British Summer Time Hyde Park festival series, and more opening acts are still yet to come. Their current line up is Robert Smith (voice and guitars), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O'Donnell (Keyboards) and Reeves Gabrels (guitars).

The Goth legends will celebrate 40 years together at the London festival on 7 July next year, flanked by a stellar line-up of support acts.

The Cure will headline with a two-hour set, which we're guessing will just be the warm-up for another two-hour set.

BST has previously hosted performances from The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Michael Buble and Bruno Mars.

The Cure formed in 1976, and released their first single in 1978.

The Cure has tapped plenty epic musical artists to join them onstage for the big day, including Interpol, Goldfrapp, Editors, Ride, Slowdive, the Twilight Sad, and "more to be announced". They have helped shape the musical landscape in the United Kingdom and beyond, ultimately bringing alternative rock to singles and album charts around the world.

Fanclub and Barclaycard presales open today (December 12), with tickets going on general sale at 9am on Friday.
