LOL TOLHURST AT THE MUSIC DISTRICT

By: Dawn Duncan  

Lol Tolhurst, drummer for The Cure, will visit The Music District on November 10, 7 pm, to read from his new autobiography entitled “Cured.” Tolhurst, a founding member of The Cure with front man, Robert Smith, whom he met as a five-year-old child growing up in Crawley, England, 1964, will share excerpts of his book and his life as a musician with one of the most iconic and commercially successful bands of our time. The Cure formed in 1976 and emerged on the scene with a unique sound that has been dubbed “alternative” since its inception, due to its dark themes, haunting melodies, and complexity of lyrics. Many consider The Cure to be the visionary founders of the alternative rock genre. Now, after the sale of more than 27 million units, earning 40 Platinum and Gold Records in the US, Japan, and Europe, countless world tours, gaining millions of fans worldwide, and a rock legacy that is one of music’s most recognizable forces to date, The Cure continue to play sold-out stadiums and venues around the world. The Music District will host this event and it is open to the public. Limited seating is available and the community is invited to RSVP online at themusicdistrict.org under “Calendar.” (Search: “The Cure’s Lol Tolhurst Presents His Memoir, CURED”). Event: November 10, 7 pm, The Music District, 639 S. College Ave., Free. Band website: thecure.com
