The 'Close To Me' rock heroes are heading to the UK and Europe
Andrew Trendell

18:20 26th November 2015

Few bands boast the same greatest hits as The Cure. With the chilling post-punk majesty of 'Close To Me', 'Boys Don't Cry', 'Pictures Of You' and two new albums of new material said to be on the way, their epic live extravaganza is a show like no other. Well, they're hitting the road in 2016 . They've added another show at Wembley Arena, and tickets to all gigs are on sale from 9am

After stunning Hammersmith last year, fans are still waiting patiently for new material - despite frontman Robert Smith claiming that they were working on not one, but two new albums

Well, now we've got our fingers crossed that new songs could finally see the light of the day, as the band seem to be on the promo run again, announcing a massive run of UK and European shows for next year

So phenomenal is demand, that the band have announced a second gig at Wembley Arena. Full UK dates are below.  Tickets to these shows are on sale from 9am on Friday 27 November 2015. For tickets and more information, visit here

The Cure's UK dates:
Tue November 29 2016 - MANCHESTER Arena
Thu December 01 2016 - LONDON SSE Arena Wembley
Fri December 02 2016 - LONDON SSE Arena Wembley 

As if this news wasn't exciting enough, support on all dates comes from none other than Gigwise favourites The Twilight Sad
