The Cure‘s Robert Smith has announced that the band will host a listening party to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their ninth studio album, Wish.
The party will take place at 11 pm GMT on November 25 under the hashtag #WishListeningParty.
Smith will lead the Tweet-along commentary of their classic album backstage following the band’s upcoming show at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome in the Netherlands.
The Wish album, which came out in 1992, features hit singles, including “Friday I’m In Love,” “High” and “A Letter To Elise.” The record hit the No. 1 on the U.K. albums chart, and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in the US.
The Charlatans frontman and host Tim Burgess told NME, “I fell in love with Wish when it came out and still play it on a regular basis – amazing that it was released 30 years ago.
“To have Robert Smith hosting a Listening Party is a dream come true – to think that he’s doing it in their dressing room, after a show is mind-blowing,” he added.
Earlier this year, The Cure announced a reissue of “Wish” to mark the 30th anniversary of the album. The reissue will contain 24 previously-unreleased tracks.
