So now we all really have something to be sad about: just like their forthcoming album, the Cure’s fall U.S. tour – scheduled to stop at Toyota Center October 16 – has been postponed until April and May 2008. If you happen to be headed to the Bay Area, they’re still headlining San Francisco’s Download Festival October 6.
“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 total satisfaction,” the band said on its Web site this morning.
Great news for everyone who couldn’t wait for all those new songs. Click through for something to tide you over for the in between days until next spring.
