If you missed out on tickets, you're in luck!

The Cure have added a third huge London date to their UK and Ireland tour for 2022.

Fans have been very excited to see the 'Friday I'm In Love' stars perform, so unsurprisingly tickets sold out fast.

A second date was added back in November following the original tour announcement.

The band will also be playing in Dublin and Belfast, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham and Cardiff.

With this third date, The Cure are now headlining the SSE Arena in Wembley, London for three nights on December 11, 12 and 13.

Support will come from The Twilight Sad.

Tickets for the new date went on sale this morning (February 4). You can purchase yours from here.

Fans are definitely getting value for money with these gigs, as they will be playing a 135 minute long show.

A press release mentioned a “67-minute” new album will be coming out.

It will be The Cure’s first album since '4:13 Dream’, came out all the way back in 2008.

Back in 2020, keyboardist Roger O’Donnell said the new album is their “most intense, saddest and most emotional record” yet.

Elsewhere, Robert Smith described the new record as “merciless”.

He revealed the working title of ‘Live From The Moon’ that there are multiple albums in the works.

He hinted at three possible new records, but then clarified Robert Smith then clarified “there are only really two" calling the reported third instalment “literally just an hour of noise”.

"The first one will definitely be out. We’re just wrapping it up now, it’s going to be mixed. Until it’s out, no one will believe me. I look forward to it coming out, more than anybody else – trust me.” Smith is due to perform at the BandLab NME Awards with CHVRCHES.
