The Cure announce 2023 tour dates, return to Pine Knob in nearly 20 years

The Cure will return to Metro Detroit on June 13.

Robert Smith of The Cure

British goth rock/new wave icons The Cure are hitting the road in North America starting in May, which includes a stop at Pine Knob for the first time in nearly two decades.

The Shows of a Lost World tour launches May 10 in New Orleans and is scheduled to hit Pine Knob on June 13. This will be The Cure’s first show in Metro Detroit since 2004’s Curiosa Festival, which also featured Interpol, Muse and a host of other dark indie rock bands that filled mix CDs and iPods in the mid-2000s.

Tickets go on sale March 15 but fans must register first with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program now through March 13. The Twilight Sad are the support act. See the full tour schedule below.

The Cure haven’t released a proper studio album since 2008’s 4:13 Dream, though Robert Smith has been keeping himself busy over the past few years. Smith and his bandmates were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. The 63-year-old also collaborated with Chvrches and Gorillaz, and just this week remixed a Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds song.
