The Cure is hitting the road for a North American trek that includes three dates each at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Madison Square Garden. This will be the first time the band plays any North American shows since its 2019 festival appearances and its first tour in the region since 2016.
Following a slate of 2022 European concerts, the Cure’s “Shows of a Lost World” tour will kick off on May 10 in New Orleans and hit 30 stops across the U.S. and Canada with a closing show on July 1 in Miami. The Cure will be supported by Scottish post-punk band the Twilight Sad at all shows. See the full lineup below.
Notably, the announcement pointed out that the Cure has mandated that “there will be no ‘platinum’ or ‘dynamically priced’ tickets on this tour,” apart from a few Hollywood Bowl charity seats. The move to turn off Ticketmaster’s platinum pricing for the tour goes against the ticketing trend that has often seen face value for select tickets skyrocketing soon after they go on sale, most famously in the case of Bruce Springsteen’s current tour.
Tickets will be made available via Ticketmaster Verified Fan Sale, which is open for registration now, on March 15.
Though the band’s last studio album was 2008’s “4:13 Dream,” frontman Robert Smith has regularly teased a new body of work from the band throughout the past few years. Last year, the band reissued 1992’s “Wish,” and Smith most recently remixed Noel Gallagher’s “Pretty Boy” single.
