English rock band The Cure announced its first North American tour in seven years on Thursday, March 9.
Following European dates in 2022, the Shows of a Lost World Tour will kick off in New Orleans on May 10 and comes to NICU Amphitheatre in San Diego on May 20 and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on May 23-25.
Tickets will be sold using the Ticketmaster Verified Fan program starting Wednesday, March 15. Fans can register now to get a code and that closes at 10 a.m. Monday, March 13 at Ticketmaster.com. A code will be needed to purchase tickets. The Cure have set the prices for the show apart from a few Hollywood Bowl charity seats. There will be no platinum or dynamically priced tickets sold on this tour.
The Cure last did a three-night stint at Hollywood Bowl in 2016, where it performed three encores during its first of three gigs. In total, they played 32 songs in two hours and 45 minutes that evening. Back in 2019, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and brought its single-day Pasadena Daydream Festival with the Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, Throwing Muses and more to Brookside at the Rose Bowl in August of that year. The band was set to release a new album, “Songs of a Lost World,” in 2022, however that effort has been delayed.
