Trending on billboard.

Tickets for all 30 dates will go on sale via Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program beginning March 15; pre-registration is required and registration will close on March 13 at 10 a.m. PT. In the wake of ticket sale snafus affecting Taylor Swift and Bad Bunny onsales, in a message to fans, the Cure wrote, “we have priced tickets to benefit fans and our efforts to block scalpers and limited inflated resale prices are being supported by our ticketing partners.”

At press time there was no information about new music from the band, though Smith has been promising a follow-up to 2008’s 4:13 Dream for several years .

The Cure Announce 2023 North American Tour

By Evan Minsker and Jazz Monroe

The Cures Robert Smith singing

The Cure have announced a 2023 tour of North America. Find their Shows of a Lost World dates below. The schedule comes with three dates apiece at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Madison Square Garden. Support on all dates comes from their longtime tourmates the Twilight Sad .

In recent years, Robert Smith has been teasing a Cure album, giving regular progress reports. In 2019, after being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ( by Trent Reznor ), Smith said , “If I’m optimistic it will be finished before the start of this summer.” The album still hasn’t materialized.

The band’s last studio album was 2008’s 4:13 Dream . In recent years, Smith has collaborated with Gorillaz and remixed Chvrches , Deftones , and, just this week, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds . Last year, the band reissued 1992’s Wish . See where the Cure landed on Pitchfork’s list of “ The 250 Best Songs of the 1990s .”

The Cure Set First North American Tour in Seven Years

By Daniel Kreps

Daniel Kreps

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, Rolling Stone may receive an affiliate commission.

The Cure will embark on their first North American tour in seven years this summer as the Rock Hall-inducted band ’s Songs of a Lost World trek have added four additional dates to their previously scheduled slate of 30 shows.

Following their 2022 European jaunt, Robert Smith and company will kick off their 2023 North American dates on May 10 in New Orleans. After circling the U.S. and parts of Canada — including three-night stands at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Madison Square Garden — the leg concludes July 1 in Miami.

The new dates include a stop in Portland as well as additional nights in Montreal, Atlanta, and San Diego. “Please please please don’t buy tickets if you don’t intend [on] going to the show,” the band pleaded on Twitter, hoping their tickets make it into the right hands and don’t end up on secondary markets.

FOUR EXTRA SHOWS ADDED TO OUR ’SHOWS OF A LOST WORLD’ NORTH AMERICAN TOUR – THREE OF THEM ARE ‘EXTRA NIGHTS’ – 21ST MAY SAN DIEGO / 17TH JUNE MONTREAL / 28TH JUNE ATLANTA #ShowsOfALostWorld2023 1/5 pic.twitter.com/BDVMGBnNXB — The Cure (@thecure) April 5, 2023

Fans can sign up for Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan now ahead of the on-sale dates. New dates will be available beginning Friday, April 7 at 10 a.m. local time. The fourth extra show, the Portland stop, will be “an experiment to see whether non-transferable tickets are enough protection,” thus Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan will not be required for those purchases.

Other than the Cure’s 2019 performances at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, the Austin City Limits Festival , and their own Pasadena Daydream fest , the band last staged a North American tour in 2016.

The-Cure-North-American-Tour-New-Dates

The Cure have expanded their 2023 “Songs Of A Lost World” North American tour by announcing additional dates in San Diego, Montreal, and Atlanta, as well as a new show in Portland, Oregon. Frontman Robert Smith has also teased that concerts in Mexico and South America will be revealed later this month.

The newly announced dates are The Cure’s latest efforts to get tickets in the hands of fans following a frustrating initial on-sale process. Fans who were previously issued verified fan codes but who were unable to buy tickets to shows in San Diego, Montreal, and Atlanta will have first crack at tickets for the new dates.

“Songs Of A Lost World” marks The Cure’s first North American tour in seven. The band originally attempted to make their shows as affordable as possible by offering zero “platinum” or “dynamically priced” tickets, and also only limited their sales to those registered as Ticketmaster Verified Fans in an attempt to prevent scalping.  A Verified Fan pre-sale for new shows in San Diego, Montreal, and Atlanta go on sale beginning Friday, April 7. Any remaining tickets will be made available to the general public on Saturday, April 8. Tickets to the Portland show go on sale on April 7.

The Cure play the following North American shows:

05/10 – New Orleans, LA @ Smoothie King Center 05/12 – Houston, TX @ Toyota Center 05/13 – Dallas, TX @ Dos Equis Pavilion 05/14 – Austin, TX @ Moody Center 05/16 – Albuquerque, NM @ Isleta Amphitheater 05/18 – Phoenix, AZ @ Desert Diamond Arena 05/20 – San Diego, CA @ NICU Amphitheatre 05/21 – San Diego, CA @ NICU Amphitheatre 05/23 – Los Angeles, CA @ Hollywood Bowl 05/24 – Los Angeles, CA @ Hollywood Bowl 05/25 – Los Angeles, CA @ Hollywood Bowl 05/27 – San Francisco, CA @ Shoreline Amphitheatre 05/31 – Portland, OR @ Moda Center 06/01 – Seattle, WA @ Climate Pledge Arena 06/02 – Vancouver, BC @ Rogers Arena 06/04 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Vivint Smart Home Arena 06/06 – Denver, CO @ Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre 06/08 – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN @ Xcel Energy Center 06/10 – Chicago, IL @ United Center 06/11 – Cleveland, OH @ Blossom Music Center 06/13 – Detroit, MI @ Pine Knob Music Theatre 06/14 – Toronto, ON @ Budweiser Stage 06/16 – Montreal, QC @ Bell Centre 06/17 – Montreal, QC @ Bell Centre 06/18 – Boston, MA @ Xfinity Center 06/20 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden 06/21 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden 06/22 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden 06/24 – Philadelphia, PA @ Wells Fargo Center 06/25 – Columbia, MD @ Merriweather Post Pavilion 06/27 – Atlanta, GA @ State Farm Arena 06/28 – Atlanta, GA @ State Farm Arena 06/29 – Tampa, FL @ Amalie Arena 07/01 – Miami, FL @ Miami-Dade Arena

In an email to fans, Robert Smith vowed to keep ticket prices reasonable, writing: “THE CURE HAVE AGREED ALL TICKET PRICES, AND APART FROM A FEW HOLLYWOOD BOWL CHARITY SEATS, THERE WILL BE NO ‘PLATINUM’ OR ‘DYNAMICALLY PRICED’ TICKETS ON THIS TOUR.”

Their website also says that tickets have been priced by the band to “benefit fans and our efforts to block scalpers and limit inflated resale prices”, supported by ticketing partners.

The Cure have not toured the US since 2016, but performed at Pasadena Daydream Festival and Austin City Limits in 2019.

Smith has repeatedly teased The Cure’s new record to NME  as a  dark, “merciless, relentless ” piece, inspired by  a period of great loss and in a similar spirit to their 1989 gothic art-rock album ‘Disintegration’.

Reviewing The Cure in London this December , NME described the show as “an unusual, but thrilling festive party”.

Elsewhere, Noel Gallagher released Robert Smith‘s remix of  High Flying Birds ‘ track ‘Pretty Boy’ this week, with The Cure frontman sharing that he was “surprised and delighted” when when the former Oasis singer-songwriter asked him to “remix this gorgeous song”.

The Cure announce 2023 tour dates, return to Pine Knob in nearly 20 years

The Cure will return to Metro Detroit on June 13.

Robert Smith of The Cure

British goth rock/new wave icons The Cure are hitting the road in North America starting in May, which includes a stop at Pine Knob for the first time in nearly two decades.

The Shows of a Lost World tour launches May 10 in New Orleans and is scheduled to hit Pine Knob on June 13. This will be The Cure’s first show in Metro Detroit since 2004’s Curiosa Festival, which also featured Interpol, Muse and a host of other dark indie rock bands that filled mix CDs and iPods in the mid-2000s.

Tickets go on sale March 15 but fans must register first with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program now through March 13. The Twilight Sad are the support act. See the full tour schedule below.

The Cure haven’t released a proper studio album since 2008’s 4:13 Dream , though Robert Smith has been keeping himself busy over the past few years. Smith and his bandmates were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. The 63-year-old also collaborated with Chvrches and Gorillaz, and just this week remixed a Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds song.

The Cure Add New Dates to North American Tour

New shows in San Diego, Montreal, Atlanta, and Portland, along with the promise of a visit to Mexico and Latin America

The Cure Add New Dates to North American Tour

The Cure have expanded their 2023 “Songs of a Lost World” North American tour by announcing additional dates in San Diego, Montreal, and Atlanta, as well as a new show in Portland, Oregon. Frontman Robert Smith has also teased that concerts in Mexico and South America will be revealed later this month.

The newly announced dates are The Cure’s latest efforts to get tickets in the hands of fans following a frustrating initial on-sale process. Fans who were previously issued verified fan codes but who were unable to buy tickets to shows in San Diego, Montreal, and Atlanta will have first crack at tickets for the new dates. Meanwhile, the band is using its May 31st concert in Portland as an “experiment” to see whether simply have a non-transferable ticket policy sans the usage of Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan experience will provide enough protection.

“Songs of a Lost World” marks The Cure’s first North American tour in seven. The band originally attempted to make their shows as affordable as possible by offering zero “platinum” or “dynamically priced” tickets, and also only limited their sales to those registered as Ticketmaster Verified Fans in an attempt to prevent scalping. Despite these efforts, many fans were shut out of tickets , while others were subject to “unduly high” transaction fees (leading Smith to compel Ticketmaster to offer partial refunds ). As of last week, the band had canceled 7,000 tickets to the tour that were obtained through scalpers.

A Verified Fan pre-sale for new shows in San Diego, Montreal, and Atlanta go on sale beginning Friday, April 7th; any remaining tickets will be made available to the general public on Saturday, April 8th. Tickets to the Portland show go on sale on April 7th via Ticketmaster .

In a tweet , Smith asks fans to “PLEASE PLEASE DON’T BUY TICKETS IF YOU DON’T INTEND GOING TO THE SHOW!!!!”

Update: Robert Smith issued a status report on ticket availabilities via Twitter on May 3rd along with a tease for a future South American leg featuring shows in Argentina, Brazil, and more. “SORTING OUT THE DEALS IS TAKING A BIT LONGER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD,” he shared. “MORE DETAILS WHEN THEY EXIST.”

The Cure are a band formed in 1976 hailing from Crawley, West Sussex, in the United Kingdom. Fronted by lead singer and songwriter Robert Smith, they came from the post-punk scene of the early 80’s to become one of the biggest and most influential bands in modern rock.

When a band gets to be as truly worshipped as The Cure, it can be an interesting and slightly bizarre thing to look at their early days. A little bit like seeing your favourite actor wondering whether they’re going to go with white or brown bread in a local Tesco. Or an important politician spotted zoning out on public transport, it brings them back down to earth and reminds you that they’re not all-conquering, all-powerful cosmically divine extra-dimension visitors who know the secrets of the universe, but a guy from the Sussex suburbs who formed a band to play at a school concert.

They probably looked ridiculous at their first shows, and not in the awesome way. They probably wrote some godawful songs. Some punters probably watched an early incarnation of The Cure and thought, for good reason, that they were a bunch of no-hopers. Every band has those days and if they haven’t one should be very, very suspicious of them. What makes The Cure so special is that they absolutely had those days, but knowing about them doesn’t take the sheen off them at all. They’re still a vitally important band, influential to thousands of bands the world over and that’s enough to make them legends, before the image and before the imitators.

And it all began with a school concert. In April 1973, five students from Notre Dame Middle School in Crawley formed Obelisk, the first tentative musical project of one Mr Robert Smith, who was the bands pianist. Future Cure cohorts Mick Dempsey and Lol Tolhurst backed him up on guitar and percussion, respectively, but it wasn’t until 1976 that the trio began to take making music more seriously. The band was reshuffled to feature Smith on the guitar, Dempsey on bass and Tolhurst left the now renamed Malice, but it was only to last a year until their lead guitarist left as well.

The remaining members got Tolhurst back as their drummer and renamed themselves again.This time, they would be called Easy Cure. By September 1977, Smith took over lead vocals after several unsuccessful auditions and by the start of 1978, they had dropped the Easy from their name and had recorded their first demo tape. This tape found its way to Polydor Records scout Chris Parry, who was so taken with the band that he signed them to his own label Fiction in September of that very year. In a move that nobody would get away with now, their track “Killing An Arab” was released soon after as their very first single.

It was a move that gained as much acclaim as controversy, to the extent that a re-release of the single had to be packaged with a sticker on the cover denying its supposedly racist connotations. Thankfully, the bands energetic post-punk got more attention, and their hype was considerably heightened with a session on John Peel’s legendary Radio One show. By the following year, their debut album “Three Imaginary Boys”, was released, and as part of its promotion, the band embarked on their first major support tour opening for Siouxsie And The Banshees.

This was to be a major step forward for the band, as Smith was coaxed into playing guitar for The Banshees after their original axe-man left shortly before the tour. The experience of being a Banshee profoundly changed Smith’s attitude towards the music that his band played, and when before he was most influenced by The Buzzcocks and Elvis Costello, afterwards he wanted to match the power that he felt while playing Siouxsie’s music. The result was 1980’s “Seventeen Seconds” and arguably, that was when they became The Cure that we know today.

Since then, they’ve been most known for essentially creating Goth music with the aforementioned record, its follow up “Faith”, and 1982’s bleak masterpiece “Pornography”. However, after those records they released some of the most romantic, beautiful and downright succesful pop of the 1980’s and early 90’s, with albums like “Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me”, “Wish” and “The Top” showing just what Smith could do with a lovelorn lyric and a truly gorgeous melody. It’s their mastery of these two extremes that really show why The Cure are as loved as they are. They exemplify the human condition, and reflect when one is ecstatic and when one is at their lowest with equal skill and sensitivity.

There’s no-one else like them, and it’ll be a while before we see their likes again. See this band as soon as possible.

Live reviews

Reviewing a show of one of your favorite Bands who have the distinction of being in your Top 5 (if not #1) live experiences of all time can be a bit daunting.

It can go a number of ways.

1. Another Great show as hoped.

2. Sub par and a let down.

3. The Band just "mails it in" (which is the worst).

The Cure, who have been around since 1976 (Easy Cure) and haven't toured the States anyway with a new album since 2008 are currently embarking on a substantial North American tour and with no new album I was really only expecting a "Greatest Hits" type show honestly? And given their Longevity and slew of "Hits" from the heyday of MTV I guess I couldn't blame them and I would have been satisfied more than likely?

Ah, but that was not the case in Boston (6-16-16) at Agganis Arena!

The Cure came out full throttle with a high energy level for what would turn out to be a marathon show of 3 hours which included.

Not 1. Not 2. Not even 3. But 4. Yes. 4 Encore Sets!!!

Were the standards there? Of course how can they not be.

"Inbetween Days", "Just Like Heaven", "Lovesong" "Let's Go To Bed", "Boys Don't Cry" etc etc etc

And all played with a kicked up, but not hurried, sense of urgency and excitement!

Mixed in though were surprising live Gems like:

"Burn" (1st The Crow soundtrack), "M", "Kyoto Song" and the surprising "Snakepit"!!

"Fascination Street" which has one the most perfect Bass lines ever IMO was a whirlwind of insanity as Simon Gallup just pushed the Band forward.

And the songs just kept coming one after the other while the crowd basked in Robert Smith's wonderfully childlike sense of wonder and emotion in his lyrics and vocals and understated guitar work.

Most Cure fans (me included) knew every single song played which is typical of The Cure fanbase.

But when they launched into the new "It Can Never Be the Same" with it's rumbling Bass line and heart felt lyrics to Robert Smith's Mother(?) I was amazed at how well it slid into this already fantastic set and really really really hope it gets a proper release soon, if it hasn't already and I have somehow missed it?

Robert Smith is an enigma of a front man. He demands your attention but. I don't believe, has never come to grips with his fans adulations and is still obviously shy individual. And I really don't think it's an act?

Simon Gallup is without doubt the energy of this Band still! He stalks the stage and never stops moving. All the while laying down a very unique Bass foundation that compliments Roberts Jangly sparse guitar style perfectly.

Simon does not get the recognition he deserves as a force on the Bass (along with John Taylor of Duran Duran) and if you play Bass you really should take a close listen to his work with The Cure.

Jason Cooper I think has finally come out from the shadow that was Boris Williams and seems comfortable in pushing his style now more in the drumming Dept. which I believe is another reason for the energy level of the Band live.

Roger O'Donnell is sublime on the keyboards and brings that soaring majestic sound needed for anything done from DISINTEGRATION while jumping right over to the nursery rhyme key tinkling of The Cure's early 80's Synth Pop era easily.

Reeves Gabrels who is the current 2nd guitarist in the ever rotating slot is a masterful musician in his own right (David Bowie folks) and honestly I was surprised at how long He has stayed with the Band? But He steps out very tastefully when required and ads his unique flair to the sound. I will admit to missing Porl Thompson who I just think was/ is the elusive component to the Band. But if you have to have Mr. Gabrels who am I to complain?.

Honestly this review could have been round up with one word: "EPIC"

But that, would be "mailing it in".

I first saw the Cure in 1982 in this very same venue, the effectionatelg named by U.S. Muso's as the Hammy Odeon.

Tonight some 30 years later I'm back. I feel at home especially as I'm stranding and I'm where I should be.... Down the Front

Our evening starts with And Also The Trees a reformed eighties outfit who previously supported the Cure on their 1984 tour.

The thing about Robert smith is that he is a prolific song writer and the bands back catalogue is immense which results in us experiencing a three hour plus spectacular.

And what a treat. Hits rained down and more randomly than normal. Tracks from The Top album seemed dominate. Just like Heaven, Charlotte sometimes, Hundred Years, The End and of course the gems Primary, play for today and the classic A Forest.

Of course I'd liked more from Seventeen Seconds and Faith but that would have been greedy. There were plenty of folk here tonight who weren't born when these albums were released

With so much to play we were presented with four encores and finally at 11.15 it all ended with Boys Don't Cry.

It meant so much for me to have returned to this awesome venue to see my favourite band.... The place and the band that started me on my gig going journey

Cheers Robert.... Fantastic

The Cure are a special band and should be heard in a special environment, that is why I saw them at Red Rocks in Colorado. It was a cool night and the sun was sitting low in the sky. That famous colorful Colorado sky fell down across the stage.

The fans were are pretty relaxed and were mostly 25 plus in age. Everyone seemed to be poised for a night of great music. You could hear conversations coming from every direction, everyone hoping their favorite songs will be played.

Just as it was getting dark the band took the stage. Everyone stood and applauded Robert Smith as he paced across the stage and made his way to the microphone stand. As the band members struck a few random chords then the band jumped into “Just Like Heaven”. The frenzy only grew as the bad started without pause to play “Friday I’m In Love”. Everyone was having so much fun. The music sounded better then I have ever heard it before.

Robert Smith played an amazing set list of all the hits over the years. The band played all the old songs like “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Pictures of you” with a fresh take and with a new energy. This band has been around a while and still worth seeing live!

The Cure are legends and any band that will give you a 2 1/2 hour show deserves your respect. That being said this "greatest hits" + a few back-catalogue approach is what you'd expect from the Rolling Stones not from what is still an underground act. That in and by itself wouldn't even be that bad but aside from a few songs 39, A Night Like This, 100 Years sounded bland, uninspired and as though they were just going through the motions... Great light show, technical perfection but no soul! I've seen them twice in the 90's and came out of those shows thrilled, energized and inspired. Those were magical shows where the band managed to transform reality and all (the band included, to judge by their faces) came out of it exhausted and amazed, carried off as by some shamanistic ritual to dark and dangerous lands where we learned to overcome our fears and face the world around us with new hope. This wasn't one of those shows. This was Robert Smith giving his audience 30 of his best songs and not once making a spiritual connection with either the music or the crowd...

Obviously being way too young to remember The Cure the first time around (sort of, ish, ahem, etc), this was the first time seeing this bunch of post-punk proto-goths and inevitably they didn't disappoint.

Despite most of the band heading pretty swiftly towards free-bus-pass age, the gig show kicked along at a pace, with young Mr. Smith barely pausing for breath as they band kicked on through a back catalogue spanning 30+ years.

Having spent the past few weeks attempting to brush up on my Cure knowledge (via Spotify) I can gladly add this band to an ever-growing list of "if you thought the studio version was good...", as tracks like Lullaby, Lovecats and Friday all sounded immense performed live.

Main issue of the night was technical; the lack of big screens at Wembley Arena means if you're right at the back, the band are mere specks on the stage up front. The lighting design was beautifully done though, and went some way to compensate for the lack of being able to see Robert Smith gurning earnestly into the microphone.

Two review, first for The Cure. It was a wonderful show! They were willing to perform hits along with other unknown songs and sounded great at doing it. They had a half and half crowd, some diehard fans and some who thought they were bigger fans than they actually were. With it being May in Pac NW the temperature dropped quickly freezing alot of people enough to say they had seen enough. This wasnt The band's fault for lack of inspired fans. They were everything I expected from a goth rock band from the late 70s and 80s. About the venue: I love the venue as well! We have been living in Portland for 5 years but have never made a point to catch a show in the Washington Amphitheater. Wow! We felt like we were home in the south. Nice concert under the stars and the price was a great as well, considering the crappy prices shows in Portland go for. We will be going back to Sunlight Supply in August.

Buon concerto del gruppo, rovinato dalla pessima acustica del Mediolanum Forum.

L'esecuzione è stata quasi impeccabile, l'interazione col pubblico buona (Robert Smith ha persino azzardato un "Grazie mille", unica ed acclamatissima frase che il pubblico ha capito), alcune canzoni elegantemente riarrangiate.

La qualità sonora, inizialmente pessima (purtroppo tale è rimasta per tutta l'esibizione dei Twilight Sad che aprivano il concerto), è migliorata durante l'esibizione grazie al lavoro ingrato dei fonici e al fatto che gradualmente le chitarre elettriche distorte sono state sostituite con le acustiche o con suoni più docili.

Penso che sia l'ultimo concerto che andrò a vedere al Mediolanum Forum, che è vergognosamente inadatto ad ospitare concerti rock dal punto di vista acustico (peccato, perché dal punto di vista logistico non è male). Ridateci l'arena!

What a concert!

We managed to get front row side view, only a few meters from the stage.

I'd seen them in 1985 in Madrid, 2008 in Melbourne and now in Milan. Awesome songs, still as good as always. A massive repertoire to choose from, but they performed most of their hits, plus a new one, It Can Never Be The Same. Robert as grand as always, he really enjoyed the show.

Simon at his best, he inspired me when I was 17 to play bass guitar, his usual moving around the stage with his bass at knee level!

I missed Porl, though, he has always been the colourful note at the right end of the stage!

Roger as sculptural as always in front of the keyboards and Jason performing at his best.

A magnificent show, what can I say.

I hope to see them again in a couple of years!

The Cure - Barcelona, Palau Sant Jordi. November 26th 2016

My 5th Cure concert, and probably the best I've seen. No doubt it was far better than the last one, also in Barcelona in 2008 (without Roger O'Donnell on keys)

The band is great with Reeves Gabrels and Roger. Jason Cooper sounds better than ever on drums and Simon's bass is terrific.

Missed some gems such as Plainsong, Jupiter Crash, Want, Letter to Elise, but setlist was OK, 32 songs, focusing on The Head on the Door (1985) + Disintegration (89) + Kiss Me (87).

1 great unreleased song: It Can Never Be The Same on 1st encore.

Robert's voice was fine, powerful and clean. Athmosphere was good, proactive and the pop songs encouraged fans to sing along.

Looking fw to a new tour and maybe new album?

Robert Smith performs on stage during The Cure's 'Shows of a Lost World' tour. Saturday, June 10, ... [+] 2023 at United Center in Chicago, IL

As live concerts have continued to make a steady return over the course of the last two years, following pandemic-induced postponements and cancellations, many fans have nevertheless been forced to watch from the sidelines, priced out of what was once a fairly affordable experience.

Concerts today double as meticulously timed and staged productions, heavy on technology that’s difficult to operate and transport. Logistics complications and staffing shortages have combined to make routing tours more difficult, and expensive. And with inflation raising the price of necessities like gas, hotels and transportation, concert tours have become more expensive than ever to stage, with fans forced to foot the bill.

Long a source of derision and frustration for concertgoers, ticketing giant Ticketmaster, owned by promoter, venue owner and entertainment company Live Nation, has come increasingly under scrutiny for its ticketing practices and fees.

During his State of the Union Address this past February, President Biden called out what he dubbed “junk fees,” doubling down last Thursday during a round table which found the 46th President joined by officials from ticketers and resellers like Live Nation and SeatGeek as well as companies like Airbnb, with Biden demanding a more transparent process that displays all fees to consumers up front instead of as one final checkout surprise.

Best Travel Insurance Companies

Best covid-19 travel insurance plans.

While it’s a step in the right direction, it hardly addresses the controversial new utilization of dynamic pricing, which, instead of setting stationary ticket prices, takes a more flexible approach, adjusting prices continually based upon demand.

Dynamic pricing is a ticketing method – chosen for use by each artist – which fuels pricing surges for the hottest, most in demand performances, causing some tickets for summer tours by artists like Bruce Springsteen to soar near $5,000 per seat at the retail level before even making it into the hands of resellers on the secondary market.

While it allows artists to pocket a larger share of the money once reserved for scalpers, it also leaves a large segment of concertgoers wholly out in the cold, unable to afford the increasing admission price in a concert going era that often feels like an arms race.

All of which makes Robert Smith’s approach to The Cure’s current “ Shows of a Lost World ” tour that much more refreshing.

“Thank you. Hello again,” said the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer earlier this month, opening the 20th show of this tour in Chicago. “Seems like only yesterday,” Smith mused on stage at United Center.

Robert Smith (left) and Simon Gallup (right) of The Cure perform on stage during the 'Shows of a ... [+] Lost World' tour. Saturday, June 10, 2023 at United Center in Chicago, IL

It’s the group’s first full U.S. tour since 2016, so demand is high. But Smith, reverent of his die-hard fan base, priced tickets as low as just $20 for each show, refusing to utilize dynamic pricing while railing against scalpers, establishing a marketplace for his fans to resell tickets to one another at face value.

In an unprecedented move, Smith, astounded by the unexpected Ticketmaster fees which doubled the price of some $20 tickets, actually negotiated with the ticketer to refund fans a portion of the service charges.

While he avoided most interviews on the subject, Smith opted to pull back the ticketing curtain a bit via social media, speaking directly to fans in a uniquely candid manner, tweeting in all caps as he showcased just how much say an artist actually has in the handling and pricing of their tickets while proving there’s still plenty of money to be made even at the lower price.

45 years into a remarkably influential career, The Cure stand today as elder statesman of alternative music, unwitting architects of an art form that would explode during the 80s, 90s and beyond, crafting emotive songs that speak to the human condition.

Adding additional dates in many cities, “Shows of a Lost World” has become one of the largest, most successful American Cure tours in the last 30 years.

Smith and company are having a moment, and rolled out five terrific new tracks on stage in Chicago, presumably cuts from the group’s forthcoming project Songs From a Lost World, which highlight a still vital creative entity.

Opening the show with “Alone,” The Cure book ended the first set with new music, wrapping up with “Endsong” while peppering in still unreleased cuts like “And Nothing is Forever” and “A Fragile Thing” along the way, saving the hits for a powerful encore.

Ironically, every phone on the floor lit up as The Cure, performing as a six piece, offered up “Pictures Of You” second in the set in Chicago, Smith turning to his left to face longtime bassist Simon Gallup during the at times soaring and swirling performance.

Early merch lines were immense, wrapping around the arena concourse and past an Amnesty International booth. Because it’s not just ticket prices Smith is looking after on this outing, with The Cure pricing tour posters at just $15 and city specific posters at $30. T-shirts are also a bargain at just $25 and merch sales were brisk at United Center.

“I may need to build a new wing!” joked one fan, who waited 30 minutes in line, of her interior decorating skills.

With most merch available online as well as at shows, that fan has purchased eight different posters so far on this tour, the band selling in bulk thanks to the unusually reasonable merchandise pricing approach.

The stage on this tour is sparse, refreshingly free of trappings, save for two small screens on each side with one large one behind the band, a production that’s cheaper and easier to route, another element helping allow the group to rein in ticket prices.

“It’s a bit tough tonight. I can feel my voice a bit,” said Smith in Chicago of a sore throat, powering through a thrilling set in fine voice nevertheless. “But it will come back,” he said with a smile, setting up the new “I Can Never Say Goodbye.”

In the Chicago live setting, the new songs stood up against The Cure’s best. And free of the effects that dictate most concert setlists remain the same night in and night out, the band has been shaking things up on this tour, trotting out a tour debut in Chicago as part of a stunning 31 song performance which clocked in at just under three hours despite Smith’s sore throat.

“We haven’t played this song on this tour,” he said excitedly. “It’s from the Kiss Me album,” said Smith, setting up the group’s first performance of “Like Cockatoos” in several years.

Rock and roll is at its best when it’s unpredictable and this tour has delivered that in a way most don’t, keeping fans on their feet and engaged throughout a performance where it truly feels like anything could happen.

“Push” remains a tour de force in the live setting. “A Forest” followed shortly thereafter in Chicago, Gallup climbing onto an amp as guitarist Reeves Gabrels turned to face drummer Jason Cooper, the crowd exploding.

Smith, picking up a guitar, bent over to face the crowd, bass lumbering in a rumble as the dueling guitar work of Smith and Gabrels kicked in under the keyboard of Roger O’Donnell during “Disintegration.”

“The other thing is it sets me,” said Smith of the impact of live performance on stage in Chicago. “But, anyway, enough of this drivel,” he said to laughs, Gallup soon spinning a whirling dervish during “Lullaby.”

“We were gonna stop there,” admitted the singer during the encore, following frequent closer “Boys Don’t Cry.” “But we’ve got six minutes!” he exclaimed, setting up “10:15 Saturday Night.”

For a band so frequently mislabeled as “goth” or “doom and gloom,” Saturday night’s encore was a downright joyous affair, with Smith guiding a crowd willing to follow wherever he led.

The Cure saved the hits for last this time around, trotting out “Friday I’m in Love,” “Close to Me,” “Why Can’t I be You,” “In Between Days” and “Just Like Heaven” all in a row, Smith feeling the love from an appreciative Chicago crowd.

“We’ll see you again!” he said, referencing the group’s scheduled Chicago return for a headlining September performance at Riot Fest. “Thank you!”

Scottish indie rockers The Twilight Sad proved to be the perfect opening act, setting the stage over the course of 40 minutes at United Center.

“Thank you for coming early!” said singer James Graham. “Holy sh-t, there are a lot of you!” said the shocked singer, the arena already about 70% full as the group conjured up a grittier Smiths during “Dead City.”

The majority of fans were on their feet as the animated singer danced spastically early in the sparsely lit set, putting their spin upon a cut by fellow Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit later.

“We’ve played more in Chicago than we have Edinburgh, Scotland,” joked Graham, dedicating “VTr” to beloved Chicago music club The Empty Bottle. “Thanks again for coming early. It means so much.”

Howie Mandel's Granddaughter Concocted the Cutest Plan to Reverse His Baldness

The granddaughter of the  America's Got Talent  Judge had a very interesting idea. 

cure tour schedule 2023

Howie Mandel totally owns his bald look, but his granddaughter Abbey had a little at home remedy so he could potentially sprout some hair on his head. 

How to Watch

Watch AGT  on  NBC  and  Peacock . 

On March 3, the  America's Got Talent   Judge posted an Instagram video of Abbey's DIY plan: Chia Pet seeds and water, which she'll pour on and rub all over his head. A creative choice, indeed!

''I'm gonna have full growth in 1-2 weeks, is that correct?'' Mandel asked Abbey.

"No,'' she quipped. 

''Well we'll see, it's gonna be great,'' Mandel said with a chuckle. 

See the funny moment later down in this post. 

This isn't the only time that Abbey has had some innovative ideas regarding her grandpa's hair, or lack thereof. In August 2023, Mandel posted a funny video of Abbey putting tissue paper , spoons, and candles on top of his head. 

"Abbey, what are you doing But what is it for? Where can I go like this?" he said as Abbey giggled. 

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Howie Mandel (@howiemandel)

In October 2023, Mandel spent some more bonding time with his oldest grand child by doing a fun photoshoot with her. In the pictures that Mandel's 39-year-old daughter, Jackelyn Shultz posted, we get to see Mandel and Abbey smiling and making goofy faces at the camera, while Abbey taught him how to pose. 

RELATED: Howie Mandel Has Shoulder-Length Hair and Side Bangs in This Childhood Pic

Howie Mandel as a grandpa

Along with Abbey, Mandel has two other grandchildren: Axel, who's mom is also Jackelyn, and a newborn babygirl, who's mom is Riley Ehrlich, Mandel's 31-year-old daughter.

When Mandel was on  The Jennifer Hudson Show   in January, he excitedly announced that Riley was expecting . 

"Grandchildren, had I known it was this good and this much fun, I would've done that first," Mandel said to Hudson. "To have a child, to have a baby, to have this bundle of joy, this love that I can't get enough of. And then to be able to give it back when it starts to smell."

On January 25, Mandel shared a loving picture  of the newborn baby girl . "My new beautiful granddaughter,"  he wrote in the caption, while ''Isn't She Lovely'' by Stevie Wonder played over the clip. 

AGT host  Terry Crews  wrote "Congratulations Howie!!!!❤️❤️🔥🔥," and  Password 's  Keke Palmer  commented, "😍😍😍." in support. 

Howie Mandel poses on the red carpet of America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League

A month later, he shared a touching moment of his wife, Terry Mandel, cradling the baby and grinning while ''All You Need is Love'' by The Beatles played.

''Nona and noa,'' Mandel wrote on the clip.
