The Cure unveils 44-date European tour in 2022, but don’t expect U.S. dates before 2023

Once again teasing a new album, The Cure today announced a mammoth 44-date European arena tour for late 2022 that will take Robert Smith and Co. to 19 counties, a trek that will mark the band’s first non-festival tour in six years.

The tour opens Oct. 6 in Latvia and runs for two months, wrapping up Nov. 11 with a show at London’s Wembley Arena. The Twilight Sad will once again open all dates. See the full itinerary below.

Tickets begin going on sale later this week, with full details available on the band’s website.

But fans in North America hoping to see the band next year will have to wait until 2023. Smith took to Twitter today to that shows in the “rest of the world” are still being finalzied. “A lot of them got pushed back — they will be announced in due course — but won’t now happen until spring 2023.”

But he added: “Yes, we will be playing songs from ‘the new album’ in 2022.”


According to a press release cited by the NME, the band is promising a 135-minute show in Europe, and teased a “67-minute” new album that has not yet been announced.

The band also has confirmed, via its new press photo, that bassist Simon Gallup remains in the lineup, despite his social media announcement in August that he was quitting.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019, The Cure has been working on a new album in recent years, the belated follow-up to 2008’s 4.13 Dream. Smith also has been collaborating of late, singing on new singles from Gorillaz and Chvrches. He also performed live with Gorillaz twice in August.

The 2022 concerts will be the band’s first live performances since before the pandemic, when The Cure followed up its Pasadena Daydream festival in September 2019 with appearances at the Austin City Limits Festival in Austin, Texas, and a one-off stadium concert in Mexico City.

  1. Come to Chicago Robert and gang!!!

  2. Come back to Missouri!!

  3. That’s nice and all but the last time they announced a tour in the process of releasing a new album, it got delayed for another year.

    Sorry, Bob. I stopped caring about a new album supposedly coming out over a year ago so I’m not the least bit in a rush to see you next year.

  4. I think it’s a bit different when 44 dates are booked with the intention of performing new material. This isn’t morrissey

  5. BARBI WESTLUND

    Robert please schedule St Paul or Minneapolis, Minnesota! You are so loved!

  6. @Cameron: what exactly do you care about now with regard to The Cure, aside from how important it is to you to let them know you don’t care?

    I mean, I understand you’re lashing out, undoubtedly out of frustration, but if you really don’t care about the new album, what is it you want?

  7. @Cameron I’m sure Robert will be devastated to hear this news from you. It might be reason enough for him to cancel the tour completely!

  8. HalloweenJack

    PLEASE, NO FESTIVAL DATES!!!!

  9. gary bennett

    I see that they won’t be playing in Lisbon Portugal…thia is where we saw them play last time we did in a big arena there. Three enores played.

  10. I’m going to assume maybe possibly Cameron might be referring to how back in 07-08ish, 4:13 Dream was repeatedly delayed and was supposed to be a double album, or something along those lines. I mean, I get it. It can try your patience after a while if it keeps being told it’s almost done. And in his defense Robert said it was almost done around the Hall of Fame induction which was 2019, so… yeah it’s been a couple years. But, like DW said, why air it out on here if you don’t care? It’s not going to affect the band any, and it’s just wasting energy.

  11. I hope they play Tramps again.

  12. Come to Boston!!!! ❤️

  13. I know Robert Smith is reading this page, so hey Robert, please do as I say and release nothing but good music and play the venues I want and do it now now now. Thanks,
    Xavier

  14. True fans never complain just happy!! Just like heaven!!
    Going to see you in England 12/7 and can’t wait. Saw them in Phoenix and San Diego years ago a day sort and they didn’t disappoint as the concert and music was not repetitive!
    Love you Rob ♥️

  15. Freddie White

    Everybody wants to see you guys come to Beaumont Texas we like the Cure to a small town come with LOVE

  16. Bruce M Beamon

    Detroit is MISSING the CURE !

  17. What about Lisbon, Portugal??? :'(

  18. Angelique

    Dear God in Heaven!!!! Please make it to the West Coast!!!! Better yet, all the way to Hawaii!!!!!!!

  19. April 21st came and went and still no 30th anniversary remaster and reissue of “Wish”. But today, April 23rd 2022, Record Store Day, we will see tons of garbage nobody asked for (America “History” on colored vinyl, Blondie “Sunday Girl” 45RPM 7”, and another picture vinyl Cure release for viewing only). I’d love to see The Cure live in the US but at this pace, I’ll probably catch them in another 25-30 years when I’ll qualify for a front row seat on my wheelchair and hoping my diapers won’t overflow.
