North American Tour 2023 For The Cure
There has been an announcement that the Cure will be touring North America in 2023. Three dates are scheduled at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Madison Square Garden, with three dates in Los Angeles. The Twilight Sad will support them on all dates, as they have done for many years.
The Cure has been teasing a new album for some time now, with Robert Smith giving regular updates on the project. While Smith’s induction had not yet released the album into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he told the crowd that if he were optimistic, it would be ready before summer. The album still needs to be released.

Last year, the band reissued their 1992 album Wish, initially released in 1992. Here’s where the Cure landed on Pitchfork’s list of “The 250 Best Songs of the 1990s,” ranked by the music website.

About The Cure
British rock band The Cure expresses despair, frustration, and futility with an uncompromising message. Known for their post-punk, angst-ridden music, the Cure has attracted a cult following worldwide. A 1989 tour saw the group play its first stadium venues in America after years as an underground sensation. Robert Smith is a songwriter-singer who uses music to exorcise existential guilt.
Standing on a Beach was the Cure’s first American release in 1986. So it had been over ten years since Smith and his partners began making music. Azerrad explains that between the Cure’s debut and subsequent albums Boys Don’t Cry, Seventeen Seconds, and Faith, they went from being an energetic pop band to being in irritable moods, with songs like The Funeral Party’ and The Drowning Man’ exuding a dark radiance.
In addition, their hairstyles, red lipstick, and clothing cultivated a punk look. Pornography, an album of almost every song which mentions death, was Smith’s nadir of morbidity. With a setlist featuring some of their greatest hits and new material from their upcoming album, this will surely be an event not to be missed. So get your tickets now and join The Cure on this epic journey! Stay tuned for more details from the event and other updates from the world of showbiz.
