Having spent most of this year celebrating their 40th anniversary as a band, The Cure are now starting to announce plans for 2019, which so far mostly include festival appearances in Europe, and South Africa. They do have a couple headline shows: they'll play Dublin, Ireland's Malahide Castle on June 8, and Glasgow, Scotland's Bellahouston Park on August 16, which is also with Mogwai, The Twilight Sad and The Joy Formidable. That show is part of the annual Glasgow Summer Sessions concert series and the only show announced for it so far.

Let's hope they announce some North American dates soon (they were last here in 2016). All tour dates are listed below.
