This just in from Live Nation: The Cure are postponing their fall tour- which means no go for their Seattle date which was scheduled for October 8th at Key Arena. Band statement from the release:
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!
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!!!
