The Cure announce Euro tour dates

The Cure will play a 30-date European tour in 2016.

They’ll head out on the road in October following their previously announced run of North American dates. It’ll be their first major tour of the continent since 2008 when they toured in support of their last studio album 4:13 Dream.

They’ll showcase “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.”

Scottish outfit The Twilight Sad will support on all dates.
