The Cure confirms Hultsfred, Hurricane, Southside festivals — ‘lots more to come’

As promised a few days ago, The Cure this morning confirmed headlining slots at three European festival performances this summer — Hultsfred Festival in Sweden and Hurricane and Southside festivals, both in Germany over the same weekend — with a promise of “lots more to come,” according to the band’s official site.

Tickets for all three festivals, all in June, already are on sale.

On Friday, Robert Smith announced on the band’s website that, “The Cure will be headlining a series of major European music festivals this summer.”

Re-enlisting keyboardist Roger O’Donnell and, on occasion, his predecessor Lol Tolhurst, The Cure last year performed a series of “Reflections” concerts in Syndey, Los Angeles, New York and London, and also headlined the U.K.’s Bestival, releasing a 2CD document of that show.

At the end of the band’s final New York show in November, Smith told the crowd, “We’ll see you again next year.” There’s been no word yet of possible U.S. concerts.


The Cure tour dates:

June 14-16: Hultsfred Festival, Hultsfred, Sweden
June 22-24: Hurricane Festival, Scheeßel, Germany
June 22-24: Southside Festival, Tuttlingen, Germany
