For 40 years, The Cure has been creating legendary music and cultivating a hard-core reputation.
As they return to Minnesota after nearly 20 years away, the Xcel Energy Center knew they had to offer them an equally hard-core gift. So, they turned to one of Minnesota’s toughest teams – the Minnesota RollerGirls.READ MORE: Body Found In Wyoming 'Consistent With The Description' Of Gabby Petito (CBS News)
Tough, fun and creative, the team at the Xcel knew these girls were the perfect people to help them create a one-of-a-kind gift for the English rockers.
The girls suggested the Xcel turn to one of their sponsors, KNOCK Inc. — a local creative agency that helps companies with their design strategy. So, the Xcel Energy Center reached out to KNOCK Inc. designer Jason Miller.
Miller created a special poster for the band, which was inspired by the cover art to their album “Disintegration.” Then printer Nate Evans, with Middle Child, printed off the custom-made posters.READ MORE: 11 Injured, 3 Critically, In 7 Weekend Shootings In Minneapolis
Upon their arrival to Minnesota, each member of the band will receive a framed poster.
