By: Christy Mannering It won’t just be Mount Fuji rocking …The Cure have finally announced they’re going to come to the US in support of their upcoming album. We’ve been wondering which Friday they would be feeling the love for us. On September, 13th in Tampa, Florida at St. Petersburg Times Forum, The Cure will begin a month long tour of the States with a quick meandering into Vancouver, British Columbia on October 9th. Lucky fans will also get to hear 65daysofstatic, as they are the opening band through the second leg of the tour.
The Cure have not released an album since their self-titled record in 2004. The title of the new one is still a mystery, but we know there will be a fall release date, courtesy of Suretone/Geffen. The Cure’s hiatus has come to an end and their 13th album will include a slightly different line-up than the last with lead singer/guitarist Robert Smith, bass player Simon Gallup, drummer Jason Cooper and, back in the band for a third time, guitarist Porl Thompson.
Make sure to head out and catch The Cure before their final show in Dallas, Texas on October 17th. If you can swing it, you should definitely make it to their San Francisco show on October 6th because they’re headlining at their Download Festival at the Shoreline many amazing artists like Kings of Leon and yes, 65daysofstatic to name a couple. The first round of tickets go on sale next Thursday, June 28th!
