Smith has mentioned on the band's official website that The Cure in Orange will be released on DVD sometime in 2010 (It is now 2013 - still no update), as it was only made available on VHS and Laserdisc. The US edition of the Laserdisc suffers from the audio and video being significantly out of sync. It is unknown whether it will also be released on Blu-Ray, like The Cure's more recent release, Trilogy.
Time Out London described it as "An astonishingly lavish production number for one of the world's less dynamic live bands, rendered noteworthy by its setting against the magnificent backdrop of an ancient amphitheatre [...] for Cure fans this is as perfect and cinematographically compelling a record of a gig as could be asked for. For the rest of us, it's a bit of a yawn." AllMusic Gave This Video 4 Stars Of 5 saying: "the mixing and recording of the show is pristine and would have made an excellent live album...With performance highlights including fantastic versions of "Primary," "A Night Like This," "A Forest," and "Faith," Orange is ample testimony to both the Cure's excellence and Pope's ability to showcase them at their best."
