Bring The Cure to Australia & New Zealand

From Michel: "We are a group of dedicated Cure fans, promoters and musicians based between Australia and New Zealand, who have recently launched a campaign to persuade The Cure and their management to bring the band back to the antipodes.

Efforts commenced earlier today with the launch of two sister Facebook pages, in response to the official press release announcing the scheduled release of a new album, and "Trilogy"-style tour in late 2014 of the band's studio albums from 1984-1987.

The Cure have toured Australia and New Zealand in 1980, 1981, 1984, 1992, 2000 (Aus only) and 2007, with another two very exclusive dates at the Sydney Opera House during the 2011 Reflections tour. Sadly for thousands of fans throughout the rest of Australasia, the two Sydney shows (of course) sold out rapidly. 

Nevertheless, we are heartened by the fact that the band's last two visits to New Zealand in 1992 and 2007 resulted directly from fan-initiated petitions like this one!"

Here's an article on the New Zealand effort. (Thanks David)

And now there's one for Argentina. And a 2nd one for Argentina.


  1. Hi Randy, I'm one of the people involved in the petition to get The Cure to Australia and New Zealand. Why do you say it's a hoax? I can assure you, it's not.

    Craig - Thanks!

    1. Sorry, was totally kidding! Just making fun of the other thread with the press release wherein everyone is crying hoax.

  2. this ain't a hoax!

    Thanks for helping out Craig :D i have missed out on seeing The Cure 3 times (2000, 2007 and 2011).
    Hoping to see them in 2014! :D

  3. Hello, thanks for sharing Argentina's petitions too!
    Really hoping that "See you again" will come true this year in our country as well =)

  4. Update: Gary Farrow on 95bFM in Auckland, New Zealand just played a three hour special show of songs from The Top, The Head On the Door and Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me plus miscellaneous b-sides and requests, which had the added benefit of earning another 50 Likes for the New Zealand Facebook page.

    Both the Aus and NZ pages have attracted over 300 fans apiece in less than 3 days, and we're about to hit the press campaign trail proper (i.e. beyond social media) with a series of press releases to radio, TV and print media.
