Fans of The Cure were given a rare treat during the band’s performance at Spain's Bilbao BBK Festival. Just before the band began their headlining set on Thursday night, keyboardist Roger O'Donnell's equipment failed, prompting frontman Robert Smith to perform a special acoustic set.
"While they fix it, I'll sing something to you," Smith told the crowd before launching into acoustic versions of “Three Imaginary Boys,” “Fire in Cairo,” and “Boys Don't Cry.” After the impromptu performance, the band’s equipment was repaired and they went on to perform 34 more songs.
A video of the 3-song acoustic set is available on YouTube.
