The ageing goth-glam rockers are back and looking even weirder as old folks. The tour will consist of 25 dates in North America in 2016. The Scottish punk band, The Twilight Sad will open the shows. So far they have given only 3 of these days — NYC, LA and Chicago. They will reveal the rest in January. Pre-sale tickets for those dates will begin on Oct. 7.
The Cure’s last album release was 4:13 Dream in 2008. A live recording came out in 2011.
Also making news today is Robert Smith’s new remix of “Vapour Trail” by Ride. It’s on SoundCloud if you want to hear it.
