The Cure Announces U.S. Mini-Tour

The Cure has officially announced dates for a low key promo tour in advance of the release of the band's latest album, "Bloodflowers," due out February 15 (See "The Cure To Return With "Bloodflowers").

The group will perform a handful of dates in Europe from February 1 to 9 before heading Stateside for shows starting February 17 in San Francisco. The performances are for the most part scheduled for club venues in half a dozen major centers.

The band will launch a full scale road trip starting in Europe in late March under the moniker "Dream Tour 2000."

According to the group's official Web site, an edited version of the song "Maybe Someday," remixed by Mike Hedges (who produced the group's early '80s releases "Seventeen Seconds" and "Faith"), is being shipped to U.S. radio this month as a promo single. There are no current plans to shoot any videos.

  • 2/17 - San Francisco, CA @ The Fillmore
  • 2/19 - Los Angeles, CA @ Palace Theater
  • 2/21 - Dallas, TX @ Deep Ellum Live
