The Cure Announce Complete 2016 North American Tour Schedule
Last month, the Cure announced the first dates of their upcoming North American tour, including stops in L.A., Chicago and New York City. Now, Robert Smith and company have fleshed out the entire itinerary.
The tour kicks off on May 11 in New Orleans, which will be followed by four stops in Texas. The Cure will also take up three-night residencies for the previously announced L.A. and New York City gigs. The tour is set to wrap up on June 24 in Miami. There will also be a stop in Seattle, but the date, venue and ticket information for that concert has yet to be announced. Check out the complete run of dates at the bottom of the page. You can find ticket information at the band’s website.
A statement on their website promises sets that span the Cure’s entire catalog, including unreleased cuts:
‘THE CURE TOUR 2016’ will present Robert Smith (voice/guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O'Donnell (keys) and Reeves Gabrels (guitar) as they explore 37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites and as yet unreleased tracks in a brand new stage production that promises to be the 'must see' show of the year!'
Scottish post-punk outfit the Twilight Sad will open for the Cure for the entire duration of their North American travels. Smith is a big fan of the Twilight Sad, even covering their song, “There’s a Girl in the Corner,” for a 7” single from the band back in May.
