The Cure have announced their first 2019 UK show, confirming the band will top the bill at next year’s Glasgow Summer Sessions.
Set to take place on Friday 16 August 2019 at Bellahouston Park, the gig will be The Cure’s first show in Scotland in 27 years, and will also feature Mogwai, fellow Scots The Twilight Sad and Welsh alt-rock band The Joy Formidable.
Now in its sixth year, Glasgow Summer Sessions has become a fixture of Scotland’s festival scene, attracting tens of thousands of fans and bringing world-class artists to the city such as Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon, N.E.R.D, Eminem, The Killers, Noel Gallagher and loads more. The Cure will grace Bellahouston on 16th August.
Last month, the band confirmed they would be performing at around 20 festivals in 2019 to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Earlier this year, frontman Robert Smith spoke with 6 Music’s Matt Everitt on the prospects of returning to Glastonbury, saying “Yeah, maybe. We haven’t had a happy history with Glastonbury over the years. Although we’ve headlined three times, we’ve never been on the best of terms. I don’t know if they forgive and forget. There are enough other festivals for us to play.”
