Rumor: South America in April/May
The latest nonsense from South America comes from this article (English) which now says those "confirmed" & "locked in" Cure shows in April, are now going to be in May. IF this article can be trusted.
Once again, and I know I'm a broken record on this, but no shows have been officially announced, and until you see it on the Cure's official website, Facebook, or Twitter, no matter what the media & promoters swear to, it is not confirmed.
And just to make it all the more comical, this article (English) is sticking with the April dates, and claiming an announcement will be made on Saturday (Jan. 19th). (Thanks Moisés)
Update (Jan. 25th, 2013): 2 new articles, from Popload (English) and Cancha General (English), are now claiming that the official announcement will be made on Saturday or Monday at the latest. Keep in mind that this will be the 3rd time that this announcement was supposed to be made, so be optimistic, but don't hold your breath. The articles claim the delay in announcing the tour are due to the band adding more dates to the tour. Instead of just playing in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile, the article claims that shows have been added in Peru, Colombia, and Paraguay. Is any of this actually true? Guess we'll find out on Monday. (Thanks Perfect.Murder and @biva77)
And now this article (English) says the announcement of the show in Chile will happen on Jan. 29th at the Hard Rock Cafe in Santiago. (Thanks Mad Bob RJS)
Update (Jan. 26th, 2013): This article says The Cure are confirmed for Bogota, Colombia on April 19th. And here's a TV report about that. Popload runs down what they know, what they think they know, and what they hope they know. (Thanks @biva77, @Lilialoman)
