    The Cure will soon embark on their first North American tour in seven years.

    Today, the Robert Smith -led outfit announced the North American leg of “The Songs of a Lost World Tour.” The 30-date outing takes place between May and July and includes three nights each at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden in New York City. The itinerary also includes shows in New Orleans, Houston, Austin, San Francisco, Vancouver, Denver, Montreal, Atlanta, Miami, and more. The Twilight Sad will provide support for the duration of the tour.

    Ticket Details

    A Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale is set for Wednesday, March 15th via Ticketmaster . Fans are able to register for up to five different shows. Apart from “a few Hollywood Bowl charity seats, there will be no ‘platinum’ or ‘dynamically priced’ tickets on this tour, according to a press release.

    In a note posted to social media, The Cure further revealed that tickets will not be transferrable. “We want the tour to be affordable for all fans, and we have a very wide (and we think very fair) range of pricing at every show… If something comes up that that prevents a fan from being able to use a ticket they have purchased, they will be able [to] resell it on a face value ticket exchange.”

    A New Album on the Horizon


    The tour comes in support of The Cure’s long-awaited new album of the same name, Songs of a Lost World . Smith has been teasing the record for several years: in an interview last year, he described it as “the best thing we’ve done.” He went as far to liken the album to 1989’s Disintegration , saying it’s “pretty relentless” and “doesn’t have very much light on it.” However, despite previously promising that Songs of a Lost World would be out by the end of 2022, the album is still without a release date.

    During a European tour late last year, The Cure debuted two new songs called “Alone” and “Endsong,” which are presumably taken from Songs of a Lost World .
