The Cure embarked on a 26 date North American tour in May 2016 which included their first shows in some cities in nearly a decade. According to the press release when the tour was announced in November 2015 the tour would feature "37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites, and as yet unreleased tracks in a brand new stage production"
It certainly turned out that way with the tour averaging about 40 songs a night and the band touring over 70 songs.
At the Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre on the 16th June the Cure played a massive 16 encore set.
Formed in 1976, The Cure is still led by Robert Smith on guitar and vocals. They also feature founding member Simon Gallup on bass, long-time keyboardist Roger O’Donnell, drummer Jason Cooper and guitarist Reeves Gabriels.
Britannia Row's long term relationship with the band goes back to 1979 and continues on and forward with a scheduled tour of Europe and the UK for the rest of 2016.
