The Cure Announces European Festival Shows

    Robert Smith and the Cure have long been a major draw at music festivals all over the world. The band even released an album of one of its headline appearances from last year, in the shape of the Bestival Live 2011 record. Now, Smith has revealed a series of shows at European festivals in 2012.

    The three dates announced so far include sets at the Hultsfred Festival in Sweden, which takes place between June 14-16 (details here); the Hurricane Festival in Germany, staged on June 22-24 (details here); and the Southside Festival, also in Germany, over the same weekend as Hurricane (details here). The band is promising “lots more to come” this year, so expect further dates to be announced soon.
