THE CURE ANNOUNCE 2016 EUROPEAN TOUR
The Cure will be playing 30 shows in 17 European countries next Autumn, their first major tour of the continent since 2008. One of these highly expected shows will be in Hungary on October 27th, at BudapestArena!
Robert Smith's band was formed in 1976. The Cure first began releasing music in the late 1970s, placing the band as part of the post-punk and new wave movements, but during the early 1980s, the band's increasingly dark and tormented music was a staple of the emerging gothic rock genre. In the middle of the 80's Smith began to place a pop sensibility into the band's music and their popularity increased as the decade wore on, with songs like Just Like Heaven, Lovesong, Boys Don't Cry, The Love Cats, Friday I'm in Love and Lullaby.
The band have sold more than 30 million albums, released thirteen studio albums, ten EPs and over thirty singles in the course of their career.
During the past 7 years the band has performed a number of high profile London shows, and headlined most of the major European festivals, including Roskilde, Werchter, Reading & Leeds, Pinkpop, Hurricane & Southside, Paleo, Vieilles Charrues, BBK, Belfort, Optimus Alive!, Primavera, Frequency, Electric Picnic and Bestival…
THE CURE TOUR 2016 will present Robert Smith (voice/guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O'Donnell (keys) and Reeves Gabrels (guitar) as they explore 37 years of The Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites and as yet unreleased tracks in a brand new stage production that promises to be one of the 'must see' shows of the year!
Support on all dates will be The Twilight Sad.
Tickets for the Budapest gig are available from November 27th 10 a.m via www.livenation.hu. A limited number of Front Of Stage tickets are also available for the show.
