The Cure are heading back to Wembley Arena at the end of 2016.
The band, who in 2014 played two shows at Royal Albert Hall and three special Christmas gigs at Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, return to the legendary venue on 1 December 2016 as part of their first major European tour since 2008.
Support on all dates will be The Twilight Sad.
‘The Cure Tour 2016’ sees Robert Smith (voice/guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O’Donnell (keys), and Reeves Gabrels (guitar) playing 30 shows in 17 European countries.
The tour will “explore 37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites and as yet unreleased tracks in a brand new stage production”.
During the past seven years the band have performed a number of high-profile London shows, and headlined most of the major European festivals, including Roskilde, Werchter, Reading and Leeds, Pinkpop, Hurricane and Southside, Paleo, Vieilles Charrues, BBK, Belfort, Optimus Alive!, Primavera, Frequency, Electric Picnic, and Bestival.
