Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

What's up with those Brits not being able to commit to coming to Seattle?

First the Fratellis, then Lily Allen, then Amy Winehouse… now THE CURE has postponed their entire tour (which included an Oct 8th visit to Seattle). Don't they know how cool and nice we are?

Here's the note of apology we just got from Robert and the posse:

With all apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment it may cause, we have made a decision to move the September/October 2007 North American Cure shows to April/May 2008.

The schedule as it stands only gives us a couple of weeks to finish our new double album before we hit the road again, and we know this just isn't enough time to complete the project to our genuine satisfaction.

We also want to create a new live show for North America, and incorporate new songs… and we need time and focus to do this.

So although we can agree it is a great shame to move these dates – believe us we have been looking forward to them more than anyone!

We honestly feel that in the bigger picture we are making the right decision.

All tickets held for all 2007 North American Cure shows will be valid for the re-scheduled 2008 shows, and of course anyone who seeks a refund will be able to get one.

All refund/rescheduling details will be announced very soon.

Once again, our genuine apologies to anyone who is upset by this announcement – please be encouraged by our promise:

The spring 2008 Cure shows will be even better than the fall 2007 ones would have been!!!

See you all soon…


Robert, Simon, Jason and Porl – The Cure 23/8/07

All tickets for the October 8 KeyArena date will be honored at the to-be-announced spring 2008 show. Ticket refunds will be issued at point of purchase.
