The Cure are killing it so far on their North American tour, which soon takes them to Los Angeles for a string of shows at the Hollywood Bowl. The band said to expect “37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites, and as yet unreleased tracks,” and so far they’ve kept true to their word. The tour is only seven shows in, and already tracks like “All I Want” and “A Letter to Elise” have been performed live. Check out a recent setlist below.

(Update 11/10/15)
The Cure have finally revealed the full details of their major North American trek save for venue information for select dates. We already knew about their shows in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The summer tour will begin on May 11 in New Orleans, LA, followed by several stops in Texas, California, Canada and the West/Midwest area. Currently, the tour wraps up on June 26 in Miami, FL, at Bayfront Park Amphitheatre. Check below for the full itinerary, and stay tuned for more info as it’s made available.

**********

The Cure have announced plans for a 25-date North American tour slated for mid-2016. Despite festival appearances over the last few years–including Lollapalooza, Osheaga, and Riot Fest–this will be their first full-fledged return to the road since 2008.

Currently, there are only three dates slated for the band’s 2016 jaunt. It begins on May 22 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA, followed by a June 10 show in Chicago, IL, at the UIC Pavilion. The final date is on June 18 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Joining them as tour support will be The Twilight Sad. Worth mentioning that based on the show dates provided, it is possible that they’ll be headlining Bonnaroo 2016, but it’s a bit early to begin summer speculations. With a complete itinerary being revealed in January, be sure to stay tuned to TBA for more dates as they are announced.
