I just saw this on their FB page and had to read it three times to believe it! I am really going to try to get to the Chicago show (I live in Kansas City).

So happy right now!

Hope to go to the Los Angeles date. More dates to come in January?  Maybe they can come back to Bottlerock in Napa to finish WCIBY & Boys Don't Cru encore :D  :smth020

While I'm skeptic about any new stuff, there is still some hope left that they might have a new album (or EP or...) finished until this tour is going to start!

It's good to finally have official news from the band after so many months... However, not as great news as one would expect, because I think this is going to be a greatest hits (sort of) tour. And why?

It's not probable it's going to be the promised Trilogy tour, since this has too many dates (25). It's also not probable this is going to be a tour to promote a new album, since the band members have been too busy with their own personal projects to be able to compose / record a new album. Also, if this was an album tour it would be a world one, not just North America, right?

Well, your guess is as good as ours!

While this has been announced as a US tour, there is still a (slight) possibility of tour dates in other countries / on other continents. Also, this year still has almost 3 months left, which (in theory) could be used for recordings (as well as the first few months of 2016)... you never know...

At last some news! Sadly, no European dates in the horizon. I wonder what Bob has planed? The flyer reminds me a lot of 4:13 Dream (but hopefully they won't play many songs of that album). As for the support band, never heard of them.



When was the last time The Cure toured so many dates in a continent? 25 dates seem quite a lot.
2016.10.17 Hamburg
2016.10.18 Berlin
2016.10.22 Praha
2016.10.26 Wien
2016.10.29 Bologna
2016.11.10 Köln

Yes indeed.I could only point out some vague ideas ten months earlier
(What are your Cure hopes for 2015?).No one expected that tour,even committed US fans.
I believe the main objective is to promote The Twilight Sad in the US.I can't see another reason
so far,though I know The Cure is always good for surprises.

Don't care if it's a Trilogy show or a 'Hits' tour or what.  Just Yahoo!!!!  First chance to see them since 1992, of course they'll be a little different...  I've seen photos promoting the tour, photos of the 2008 band, of the 2004 band, has there been a line-up change?  I know there hasn't, but you'd think there'd be some sort of announcement as to who is in the band at this time.  I know Robert doesn't really care what the press knows or thinks, the fans are generally knowledgeable (generally...).  Looking forward to having a chance to see a show (after such a looooooooooooooong time).

THANKS FOR THE OVERWHELMING RESPONSE TO THE SHOW ANNOUNCEMENTS SO FAR!

WE ARE STILL FINAL ROUTING THE DATES... SETTING TICKET PRICES... AGREEING DEALS...

ADDING THESE EXTRA NYC AND LA SHOWS HAS MEANT A BIT OF CHOPPING AND CHANGING...

ALL BEING WELL, WE WILL POST A LIST OF INTENDED CITIES SOMETIME NEXT WEEK - BUT WE PROBABLY WONT BE IN A POSITION TO ANNOUNCE A FULL LIST OF ACTUAL SHOW DATES FOR A WHILE YET...

ONWARDS...
