The Cure opened its three-night stand at the famed Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Tuesday night by debuting another new song: “Another Happy Birthday.”
Robert Smith had promised to reveal details of The Cure’s concerts in Mexico and South America by the end of April, and though that deadline came and went.

The Cure this morning announced its first North American tour in seven years, with plans to bring its “Shows of a Lost World” trek to the U.S. and Canada.
Simon Gallup, 61, made the announcement in a public post on his personal Facebook page, writing: “With a slightly heavy heart I am no longer a member of the Cure! Good luck to them all…” In response to someone asking if he was OK, he replied that he “just got fed up of betrayal.” More here.
Robert Smith waited until The Cure’s last song late Saturday night to deliver his own verdict on the Pasadena Daydream festival, his hand-picked 10-band bill that took over the sprawling golf course next to the Rose Bowl under a scorching Southern California sun. “It’s been the best day of the summer,” Smith said.
Despite laying down hints that American audiences would see The Cure play Disintegration in full later this year, Robert Smith made it clear in a radio interview Friday that it’s unlikely that’ll happen — and the band isn’t planning to mount a tour of the U.S. before 2020. Instead, the band’s planning a festival in L.A.
The Cure’s Robert Smith — with an assist by the band’s keyboardist Roger O’Donnell — has recorded a new version of the classic Disintegration track “Pictures of You” with the London-based Quartet Voluté for the new documentary “Dead Good.” You can hear the new version in the film’s trailer.
