Now that we're finished with the South American show rumors, I guess it's time for the North American ones to start. Here's the yearly claim that The Cure will be playing Lollapalooza in Chicago this August. And more here. (Thanks David)
Nothing to get excited about, and obviously just speculation, so we'll wait and see if there's anything to it. Also, the image posted on those websites, which seems to be the only reason The Cure are being mentioned, is 99% confirmed to be a fake.
Update (03/11/13): Okay, time to take this a bit more seriously. The Cure are now listed as "logical" at the Consequence of Sound Festival Outlook page, since it's the same weekend as Osheaga, and has been pointed out that the two festivals usually share many of the same bands.
Update (03/26/13): Rumors continue to be very strong on this, and it's moving towards being more of a surprise if they DON'T play Lolla, than if they do. All of the General Admission 3 day passes sold out today (VIP & Platinum passes still available), so only one day passes will be available when the official announcement is made on April 9th. Expect some lineup hints & clues leading up to that.
Update (03/28/13): Chicago Tribune confirms that the leaked poster is accurate. Confirm The Cure are playing Lollapalooza. Also says that the official announcement & single day ticket sales have been moved up to next week.
Update (03/29/13): Lollapalooza now confirms that the official announcement will be made on April 1st and single day tickets will go on sale April 3rd.
