    The Cure: 'Reflections' Seven Final Performances

    Due to overwhelming demand The Cure's 'Reflections' show - first experienced in the spring of 2011 at the Vivid Festival in Sydney - will be performed seven more times in November 2011.

    'Reflections' sees an evolving line up of band members past and present playing the first three Cure albums live in their entirety - from the punchy, offbeat, starkly unadorned songs of 'Three Imaginary Boys' (1979), through the increasingly shadowy and quixotic pieces of 'Seventeen Seconds' (1980), to the singular melancholic grandeur of 'Faith' (1981) - in a truly extraordinary concert experience.

    This final chance to experience the 'Reflections' show will happen in Europe at the Royal Albert Hall, London on Tuesday November 15th, and in the USA at the Pantages Theatre, LA on Monday 21st, Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd, and at the Beacon Theatre, NYC on Friday 25th, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th.

    Tickets for the Royal Albert Hall, London show go on-sale Friday 30th September 2011 at 9am local time and are available from the 24 hour ticket hotline:

    MK1: New Video 'Money or Luck'

    MK1, comprise of vocalist Charlie Starr, rapper Simeon and producer DJ extraordinaire Vendetta, are set to be this year's hottest breakthrough urban act. Mixing a finely tuned ear for melody with the darkness of contemporary dubstep, the trio have already made waves on the UK's underground club scene, and are now blazing a trail through the country's most respected studio locations, working with the likes of Jake Gosling, Sy & Unknown, MC DT and Millions Like Us, in the creation of their debut album.

    'Money or Luck' is the band's anthem for independence, boldly stating that they've taken their own path on the way to superstardom. The track sees them hook up with US rap star Lazee, who's rhymes blend flawlessly with Simeon's own beat-riding flow.

    Their brand new video is set to take their awesome new sound to another level entirely.

    Justice: 'Audio, Video, Disco'

    Emerging from the creative cocoon that has enveloped them since wrapping up promotional efforts for their 2007 grammy-nominated debut †, Xavierde Rosnay & Gaspard Augé, the influential Parisian duo known as Justice, have announced the impending release of their second album 'Audio, Video, Disco'. The new effort is at once looser and heavier than previous releases, using the combined musical vocabulary of rock and electronic to conjure a laidback, brut effort existing on the outer fringes of pop.

    'Audio, Video, Disco' was created in the duo's home studio, with all instrumentation performed by the group themselves.the duocrafted an epic masterpiece that exchanges the "night in the city" setting of their debut with an "afternoon in the country" atmosphere.

    †established the group as an international force and the duo have responded with a huge album that panders to no one, equally at home blaring from a dance club soundsystem or performed in an arena. Don't be surprised when it finds its home in the latter.
