The Cure coming to Baltics with a one and only concert in Latvia for some are a dream come true. The fans of the band for sure have already marked the date - October 6, to experience the long-waited show in Baltic States. But in case you have doubts, here are 5 reasons to help you make the decision and see the legendary band live.
Firstly, it will be the first and only concert of the cult band The Cure in the Baltic States. This means that not only residents of Latvia, but also their nearest and further neighbours are showing increased interest in buying tickets. As the special guests have been confirmed the Scottish post-punks The Twilight Sad.
Secondly, The Cure will start their European concert tour right in Riga. Recall that the group's previous tour ended in 2016. Since then, Robert Smith and the team have performed only at festivals.
Third, The Cure's new studio album is scheduled for release in 2022. As you know, the previous record "4:13 Dream" was released in October 2008 and it goes without saying that thousands of fans around the world are eagerly awaiting this event. Accordingly, in Riga one will have a unique opportunity to enjoy at least some of the band's premieres live. A total of at least 2 hours of performance is promised.
Fourth, no doubt that The Cure's concert at the Arena Riga on October 6th will be the culmination, but not the only event dedicated to the band that week. Thus, ticket holders will have a chance to attend more than just a concert. We will inform you about the program of events separately.
And at least the fifth argument - when then, if not now?! There may be no next time!
It is no exaggeration to say that for more than 40 years the formation led by charismatic Robert Smith has become a source of enthusiasm, inspiration, imitation, encouragement or even consolation for not one generation of many listeners, musicians, artists, designers and creative people in general. Lullaby, Friday I'm in Love, Just Like Heaven, Lovesong, Pictures Of You, Close To Me, In Between Days, Boys Don't Cry, Let's Go To Bed, A Strange Day, The Lovecats and a number of other pieces should be easy to name to anyone familiar with the band's work.
During their career, The Cure has released 13 studio, several live and compilation albums, plus more than 40 singles, selling more than 30 million records in total. They also have several concert films on their account, as well as some soundtracks.
The Cure has received a number of prestigious musical awards, including the Brit Award, the MTV Music Video Award, the Ivor Novello Award and more. In 2019 the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Smashing Pumpkins, Interpol, Jane's Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, AFI, 30 Seconds To Mars, The Killers, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Deftones, Blink 182 are just a few bands to name, whose members do not hide The Cure or Robert Smith's influence.
