The Cure unveils plans to play Dublin, headline ‘around 20 festivals’ next summer

The Cure today teased fans with a somewhat cryptic announcement of what appears to be a planned Dublin concert next June — details still TBA — following frontman Robert Smith’s declaration that the band will be “headlining around 20 festivals next summer — mostly in Europe.”

The band today tweeted “Dublin. June 8th. Save the date. Full details coming soon!” No further information has been revealed. This follows a tweet from Smith himself last week telling fans to keep an eye on The Cure’s website and Facebook page for announcements about European festival dates.

 



 

So far for 2019, the band has said it’ll play its first-ever concerts in South Africa, and announced appearances at festivals in Italy and Greece.

 



 

These will be The Cure’s first concerts since July’s massive 40th anniversary show in London’s Hyde Park.

See the band’s tour dates below.

 

The Cure tour dates:

March 16: Rock on the Lawns, Festival Lawns, Carnival City, Johannesburg, South Africa
March 21: Rock on the Lawns, Kenilworth Race Course, Cape Town, South Africa
June 8: TBA, Dublin, Ireland
June 16: Firenze Rocks, Visarno Arena, Florence, Italy
July 17: Eject Festival, Plateia Nerou, Athens, Greece

    Dear Mr. Robert Smith, of The Cure, I know you read these comments personally, checking back on them every day. To that end, I would like to state that I find your band very pleasing to me, having always been one of my favorites. I am hoping that after reading this, you will take it into consideration and book a date in my town so that I can see you. Thank you very much for reading my comments.
