The Cure announce first North American Tour since 2016, including a stop in Tampa this Summer

English rock band The Cure have announced a 30-date 2023 North American tour including three consecutive nights at both LA's Hollywood Bowl and Madison Square Garden in New York.

The band will kick off the tour at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on May 10, with stops including Austin, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, Vancouver, Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia, before stopping off in Tampa's Amalie Arena for the penultimate show on June 29, with the tour ending on July 1 at the Miami-Dade Arena.

Tickets for the Tampa show go on sale Friday, March 17 at 10 am via Ticketmaster.

Support on all dates comes from the Twilight Sad.

This will be the bands first US Tour since 2016, with the band only having performed at Pasadena Daydream Festival and Austin City Limits in 2019.

In recent years, Robert Smith has been teasing a Cure album, giving regular progress reports. In 2019, after being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Smith said, “If I’m optimistic it will be finished before the start of this summer.”

The album still hasn’t materialized, but we may see new material with the announcement of this tour.

The band’s last studio album was 2008’s 4:13 Dream. In recent years, Smith has collaborated with Gorillaz and remixed Chvrches, Deftones, and, just this week, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
