Watch THE CURE Perform Two New Songs During Concert in New Orleans


The Cure have set out on a massive world tour and debuted two new songs during their first show

May 11, 2016

The Cure’s US tour kicked off yesterday, May 10, with a show at the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, and the new material from the band started pouring in from the first night. The Cure debuted two new songs, ‘Step Into The Light’ and ‘It Can Never Be The Same’, which New Orleans audience was lucky to enjoy first. Check out the fan-shot footage of both live debuts below.

The Cure is one of the most significant bands in the history of alternative and gothic rock. They have been creatively silent for a long whole, so this tour, introducing the band’s new material, is one of the most awaited events on the music scene this year. The Cure gave a few shows in 2014 but haven’t embarked on a proper US, UK or European tour since 2008.

This time The Cure will cover North America with an extensive tour, then fly all the way to Australia and New Zealand for a bunch of shows and take it back to the UK for a 30-date European tour, embracing UK, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, France, Spain and Portugal. The dates are booked into early December, so the British musicians will be rocking by the sweat of their brow till the end of the year.
