The Cure frontman Robert Smith appeared at a performance by CHVRCHES in London on Wednesday. The singer joined the group for their hit collaboration “How Not To Drown” and a cover of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven.”
Smith also played guitar for CVRCHES’ “The Mother We Share” and “Clearest Blue.” CHVRCHES is currently on their UK and North American tour, however, Smith also collaborated with the group earlier this month at the 2022 NME Awards where they won the trophy for Best Song by a UL Artist for “How Not to Drown.” Smith and CVRCHES initially joined forces in 2021 to collaborate on the second single from their latest album, Screen Violence.
The fan-captured footage of the group performing is full of energy and almost emotional vibrations. Fans seemed ecstatic to see Smith performing with the group, taking to social media to unveil the news.
