MTV's U.K. channel has set an October 31 air date for the "mtvICON" tribute to THE CURE that was taped September 17 at Old Billingsgate Market in London, England. Marilyn Manson hosted the show, which featured performances and testimonials from artists and celebrities who cite THE CURE as a significant influence upon their work. According to BBC News, Manson led a crowd of 1,000 through a series of musical and video flashbacks, punctuated by performances from BLINK-182, A.F.I., and DEFTONES.

BLINK performed "A Letter To Elise" and was then joined by CURE founder Robert Smith for "All Of This", from the punk trio's latest, self-titled album. Smith also appeared on the studio version. A.F.I. played "Just Like Heaven", while the DEFTONES provided "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep".

A U.S. airdate for the "mtvICON" tribute to THE CURE has not been scheduled yet.
