2018 marks the 40th anniversary of The Cure and the band has plans to celebrate. They announced a huge headlining show in London’s Hyde Park on July 7, which is their only European show of the year.
On their website, The Cure promises to play a two-hour long set, which is a bit short considering their lengthy sets on their 2016 tour. The show also features a number of openers including, Slowdive, Interpol, The Twilight Sad, Ride, Editors, and Goldfrapp. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 15.
If this is actually The Cure’s only European performance for 2018, does this mean they’ll embark on a North American tour? We’ll have to wait and see, but for now let’s hope we’ll be hearing about a tour soon enough.
