Live clips of the band playing tracks during their 30th anniversary show for 'Disintegration' at Sydney Opera House are now online

The Cure have shared videos for three tracks from a concert they played at Syndey Opera House earlier this year.

The show marked the 30th anniversary of their album, Disintegration, with the footage that the band have shared of 'Plainsong', 'Pictures of You' and 'Disintegration' having been captured during a live stream of their final performance on the anniversary tour on May 30 by filmmaker Nick Wickham.

While only three tracks have been made available from the set so far, Robert Smith said in a statement that the release of the rest of the concert footage "can't be too far away". You can watch the three videos above and below.

In October, The Cure released a concert film-focused box set titled 40 LIVE - CURAETION-25 + ANNIVERSARY which took in footage from a series of live shows they played to mark their 40th anniversary as a band.
