Fire In Cairo have been performing for several years now and are one of the best Cure tribute bands there is on the planet. It’s almost spooky how much vocalist Niall sounds like Robert Smith. He’s got the look and the attitude down too…..right down to his white trainers. The band are well-rehearsed, polished, and can reproduce a wide range of the Cure’s back catalogue note for note. It’s the next best thing to seeing the Cure themselves and if you squint your eyes just right, you could almost be at a Cure gig.
Fire in Cairo play all the big chart hits like ‘Just Like Heaven’, ‘Love Cats’ and ‘In Between Days’ along with lesser known songs such as ‘Primary’, ‘Jumping Someone Else’s Train’, ‘Charlotte Sometimes’ and more. Favourites from albums Faith, Pornography, Three Imaginary Boys, The Top, Disintegration and Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me are all given an airing, much to the enjoyment of the audience. The space in front of the stage will be packed with happy dancers.
The Cure are still one of the best live bands around, and it’s a fitting tribute that Fire In Cairo play to a similar standard, giving their audience an experience that’s as close as you can get to a Cure gig without actually going to a Cure gig. Keep an eye out on FIC’s Facebook page for their next performance. We promise you won’t regret it. Tickets €10 via Ticketstop or €15 on the night
