Splendour in the Grass headliners The Cure recently announced headline dates in Sydney and Melbourne, and now, they have confirmed additional headline sideshows in Adelaide and Perth, set to take place on July 29 and 31 respectively.
It has been five years since The Cure last visited Australia, when they performed their Reflections concert series for Sydney’s Vivid LIVE, performing three full full albums in a row – Three Imaginary Boys, Seventeen Seconds and Faith on two nights at the Sydney Opera House.
While The Cure have not released an album since 2008, the legendary Robert Smith and co will be touring throughout 2016 on their first major run in eight years. Fans can reportedly expect a full look back at the band’s 37 year history, as well as unreleased tracks, deep cuts and a totally new stage production.
Tickets for the two new shows go on sale on Tuesday May 17 at 9 am local time. Meanwhile, Tesltra customers can access a 48 hour pre-sale from 2 pm on Wednesday May 11 – details here. Visit Live Nation’s website for more information and full details.
