SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cure have posted a message on their website http://www.thecure.com/ announcing the postponement of the band's fall U.S.tour.
"With all apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment it may cause, we have made a decision to move the September/October 2007 North American Cure shows to April/May 2008. The schedule as it stands only gives us a couple of weeks to finish our new album before we hit the road again, and we know this just isn't enough time to complete the project to our total satisfaction."
Fear not Cure fans, all tickets purchased for the 2007 fall tour will be honored for the rescheduled date. Similarly, anyone looking for a refund will be offered one. Details on refunds/rescheduled dates will be announced shortly.
The Cure will still be headlining the San Francisco Download Festival October 6th, will be performing at the MTV Latin America Awards October 18th and will still be playing the three Mexico City Palacio de los Deportes shows October 20th/21st/22nd.
Look for The Cure to release a new album on Suretone/Geffen Records in April 2008!
Led as always by lead singer/guitarist Robert Smith, the Cure line-up comprises longtime members bass player Simon Gallup, drummer Jason Cooper and, back in the band for a third time, guitarist Porl Thompson.
The Cure first formed in southern England in 1976 as Easy Cure. In 1978 the 'Easy' was dropped, and The Cure was signed to the Fiction label. In May 1979 their debut album Three Imaginary Boys was released to great acclaim.
Other landmark Cure albums include Pornography (1982), The Head on the Door (1985), Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me (1987), Disintegration (1989), Wish (1992), Wild Mood Swings (1996), the Grammy-nominated Bloodflowers (2000) and their last full length release, the self-titled set The Cure (2004). This past year saw the Suretone/Geffen release of Festival 2005, an award winning 5.1 DVD featuring 30 songs, shot by fans, band members and professionals during the summer of 2005's European festival run.
