The Cure tour seems to be expanding, but this is something that we already knew.  Robert Smith, the lead singer of The Cure, already tweeted that the band will perform at 20 festivals, most of them in Europe. You can see the tweet here:

In a previous interview with BBC 6, Robert Smith also spoke about the possibility of The Cure returning for a fourth time at Glastonbury. When asked if they will headline Glastonbury 2019, he answered: “Yeah, maybe. We haven’t had a happy history with Glastonbury over the years. Although we’ve headlined the festival three times, we’ve never been on the best of terms. I don’t know if they forgive and forget. There are enough other festivals for us to play.”


The Cure

The Cure are an English band from Crawley, West Sussex, and one of the most iconic groups still performing. Since the late 70s, they have delivered a unique sound, often qualified as post-punk or new wave. They have sold roughly 27 million records and received several nominations at the Grammy Awards and Brit Awards. They also won an MTV Video Music Award in 1992 for their anthem ‘Friday I’m In Love’.
