    The Cure have announced their 2023 North American tour. Going from coast to coast from May to July for 30 stops, this leg of the “Songs of a Lost World Tour” will be their first tour on the continent in seven years (get tickets here).

    The announcement comes as fans are still in anticipation of the band’s new album, itself titled Songs of a Lost World. In 2022, frontman Robert Smith hinted that the album would be out by the end of the year, but as of March 2023, there is still no release date. Nonetheless, the band did play the European leg of the “Songs of a Lost World Tour” last fall, where they debuted two new songs presumably off the album.

    Embarking on the North American leg of the tour, fans can expect to hear a good variety of classic hits, deep cuts, and maybe a few new tracks (if the setlist is anything like the European leg, that is).

    What Is The Cure’s Next Tour?

    The European leg of the “Songs of a Lost World Tour” ran from last October through December — now, the show is coming stateside for 30 dates, starting in New Orleans on May 10th and ending in Miami on July 1st.

    After kicking off, the tour will go west through Texas (making stops in Houston, Dallas, and Austin), through the Southwest, and into California, where the band will play their first of two three-day residencies, this one at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Then, the show will follow the West Coast all the way up to Vancouver, before hopping back into the states for shows in cities such as Chicago and Detroit, among many others.

    Then, going into Canada one more time, they’ll hit Toronto and Montreal, and return to the states for East Coast gigs, including their second three-day residency, this one at Madison Square Garden in New York. From there, the tour will continue down the coast and end in Miami.

    Who Is Opening for The Cure?


    The Cure will be taking longtime tourmates The Twilight Sad on the road with them. They first toured together in 2016 after Smith selected the group as openers, and since then, the two acts have done numerous collaborations.

    How Can I Get Tickets for The Cure’s 2023 Tour?

    A Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale is set for Wednesday, March 15th via Ticketmaster, with fans able to register for up to five different shows. Registration for the pre-sale is open now, and will close on Monday, March 13 at 10:00 a.m. ET. 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.”
