THE CUREheads
 
"The Original Tribute to The Cure since 1990. Working tirelessly to recreate the sounds, tunes & atmosphere of a real 1980's show by The Cure" - The Glasgow Herald 
"Add some comedic audience interaction taking you back to your youth and the first time you tasted olives or Guiness & there's the perfect thirty/forty something's night out with The Cureheads!" - Timeout London
"The highlights of the IOW 2016 weekend for me were Gabrielle Aplin, Sigma, Queen, Busted and every moment I spent in The Hip Shaker Tent. Friday night was well spent seeing The Cure Heads singing my heart out to ‘Friday I’m in love’, undoubtedly one of the best tribute acts I’ve ever seen, and a massive crowd favourite" - Subba-Cultcha

Component styling

Here is how K2 component will look like after extended styles applied.

Module styling

Besides from extended component styling you can use template module styles for K2 modules as well.

One of the most important SEO techniques is to make sure that search engine can find your critical content before others. To make this possible in our template code structure we generate the “center” part first and only after that “left” and “right” columns.

In this way, you can be sure that search engines will see your critical content first. You can use Lynx browser both online or offline to make sure of that.


Website Title

Website Title

This feature allows you to use value defined in parameter Site Name from Joomla Global Configuration and show it in tag <title> on every pages. By default Joomla! presents Site Name only at back-end and offline page. Now, with parameter Website Title you can utilize Site Name at front-end on every page. This is great feature to improve your website SEO, since you can define a website title with some important keywords and show it on every page.


Top H1 tag

Top h1 tag

This feature allows you to wrap website slogan to <h1> tag, which is good for both SEO and accessibility. As we all know, <h1> is the most important content tag and search engine normally pays special attention to the content in that tag. Once you configured your keyword-powered website title and slogan, you can include them in the first h1 tag to increase SE ranking.

The Cureheads were formed in 1990. The band played its first show in Stockholm in July 1990 at Frietzfronten in St. Eriksgatan 89, an underground bar owned by a Swedish political party, and played its first large headline show at the WGT in 1995. Then known as Fat Bob & The Cureheads. The band has toured in the UK, the USA, continental Europe, and South America, playing festivals, including opening for Echo and The Bunnymen and The Pretenders at Guilfest.[1] The band state that they strive to re-create the experience of seeing a mid to late 1980s concert by The Cure, including not only the sound, but also the wardrobe, attitude, stage, light show and various video and computer images

The Cureheads name is taken from the Irish slang term for anyone with that "1980's mop haired 'Gothic' look".[citation needed] They were originally known as "Fat Bob & The Cureheads" until 2000

Since 1990, The Cureheads has played venues including The Vic Theater in Chicago,[2] Camden Palace in London, The Temple Bar Music Centre in Dublin, CBGB in New York, and Razzmatazz in Barcelona.[3] The Cureheads recently played to 10,000 people ın Chile at the Teatro Caupolicán in Santiago (the old national basketball stadium of Chile). The show was recorded for national television and reported on the news, as The Cure has never played in Chile despite having a huge fanbase there.[4]

In 2012 The Cureheads played in Paraguay & Argentina ahead of The Cure playing there in 2013.[5]

In 2016 The Cureheads played at The Isle of Wight Festival.

The current and past musicians are pulled together from various Gothic Rock bands such as Nosferatu, Killing Miranda and The Essence and Andy Andersonb(an original drummer from The Cure) joined The Cureheads from August 2012.[6] Andy Anderson was fired from The Cureheads after he failed to appear at the airport on the morning of their South American tour in November 2012. The Cureheads claim that they haven't heard from Anderson since.[7] Their set-list consists of songs from the full recorded history of The Cure.
