The Cure has announced a string of South American dates as part of their “Shows Of A Lost World” tour. Robert Smith shared the news on his Twitter account, writing, “2023 IN ARGENTINA: BRAZIL: CHILE : COLOMBIA: MEXICO: PARAGUAY: PERU: URUGUAY… BUT SORTING OUT THE DEALS IS TAKING A BIT LONGER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD… MORE DETAILS WHEN THEY EXIST… ONWARDS X.”
It’s been a decade since the group last visited South America as part of their “The Great Circle Tour” in 2013. As Smith noted, details are not yet available, but dates can be assumed to follow the North American leg of “Shows Of A Lost World,” which begins this week in New Orleans and continues through July 1st with a final date in Miami.
After initially announcing their first North American tour in seven years, the band confirmed additional dates due to outstanding demand that included new dates in San Diego, Montreal, and Atlanta, as well as a new show in Portland, Oregon.
The band originally attempted to make their shows as affordable as possible by offering zero “platinum” or “dynamically priced” tickets and also only limited their sales to those registered as Ticketmaster Verified Fans in an attempt to prevent scalping.
The Great Circle Tour will see Smith joining with her longest-running bandmate, bassist Simon Gallup, as well as drummer Jason Cooper, keyboardist Roger O’Donnell, and guitarist Reeves Gabrels. The Cure frontman surprised fans last year by onboarding guitarist/keyboardist Perry Bamonte, who played in the band from 1990 to 2005.
As more tour details emerge, fans are anxiously anticipating news of the band’s next album, Songs of a Lost World, which Smith said could be released prior to The Cure’s fall tour last year.
