Robert Smith: The Cure to mount first-ever full South American tour next year

Fans of The Cure in South America are among the band’s most patient: Outside of two Brazilian concerts in 1996, Robert Smith and Co. haven’t toured there since the Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me trek of 1987, a 11-date tour that only hit Brazil and Argentina. That should change next spring, when Smith says The Cure will return to South America, playing Chile, Uruguay, Peru and Venezuela for the first time ever.

As fansite Chain of Flowers points out, Stage D Magazine interviewed Smith backstage at the Paléo Festival in Switzerland, where the band performed last night, and asked the frontman when The Cure finally will return to South America.

Smith’s response, as you can see in the video posted above, was: “We’re supposed to go there just after Easter next year. We’re going to play in every… not every country in South America. We’re not playing in Ecuador because people don’t play in Ecuador. But we’re playing Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Venezuela.”

The Cure last ventured to South America in 1996 for two January concerts in Brazil. The band’s only full South American tour came in 1987 in support of Kiss Me, when the group performed 10 concerts — although, even then, The Cure only played in Brazil and Argentina.

  • Fuck you Robert Smith. You don’t have the balls to play in Ecuador.

     
  • Peter

    I dream of attending to a Cure concert with Boris Williams in the drumchair…

     
  • Looks like Bobby is trying to play to everyone before he wraps up The Cure for good. Wonder if North America is getting a tour anytime soon? Maybe summer 2013.

     
  • While you’re down south, how about another trip across the sea to Australia!?

     
  • @ Stan …I think you are correct . I give the band another year , possibly 2 before it all comes to an end . And so it should , for a variety of reasons , not least among them being they haven’t put out a good studio album since Bloodflowers . Robert’s muse has flown away into the night never to return . It’s already bordering on a self-mimicking with the Trilogy & Reflections tours .

    I’m an Ecuadorian and I understand why, People in Ecuador in terms of music sucks.

    I kinda understand Robert… there are no known rock bands in Ecuador anyway… do they know about rock or are in ‘tropical’ music?

      que estúpida (también soy chileno) y por tarad@s como tú todos hablan mal de nosotros.
      A los ecuatorianos, les recomiendo, vean donde sale más barato y viajen, es una excelente experiencia.
      De venezuela no me extraña que no vayan, hace 1 mes dañaron pasaportes y requisaron los instrumentos de una banda italiana, además los deportaron a su país y jodieron toda la gira latinoamericana
