The Cure Announce One New Zealand Show

The Cure Announce One New Zealand Show

Thursday 14th April, 2016 6:55AM

It's the news that all fans of The Cure have been waiting for, the iconic English group are returning to New Zealand. The one-off show will be the first time The Cure have graced these shores since 2007, when a petition lured Robert Smith and Co over for a performance at Vector Arena - the same venue they will be playing in July.

The announcement comes on the heels of yesterday's news that the band will be headlining Australia's Splendour In The Grass festival, but also comes as part of an epic tour schedule they have planned for 2016, which includes 26 dates around North America. The show on these shores will see the influential outfit perform 37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites, and as yet unreleased tracks. Here are the details so far...

Thursday 21st July, Vector Arena, Auckland

Here's 'Close To Me' from their 1985 album The Head On The Door...
