The Cure adds Primavera Sound, Bilbao BBK, Optimus Alive to slate of summer festivals

The Cure continues to move forward with its plan to headline seemingly every festival in Europe this summer, with three new additions to Robert Smith and Co.’s itinerary: Primavera Sound 2012 in Barcelona, Spain; Bilbao BBK Live in Bilbao, Spain; and Optimus Alive in Oeiras, Portugal.

Those new additions join already announced slots — running from late May through mid-July — at major summer festivals in Holland, Sweden, Germany, France, Denmark and Italy. Interestingly, no U.K. festivals have been confirmed as of yet, and no word yet on whether the band will make good on suggestions it will return to the U.S. this year.

See thecure.com for ticket information on each festival.
