In this article, Italian band Spiral69 claim The Cure will play 3 shows in Italy this September, and they will open for them. Needless to say, nothing more than a rumor at this time.
Richard, you will open the concerts of The Cure? How does it feel?
"It 's one of those things that never quite realized - says the founder and lead singer of the group -. Robert Smith (historical leader of the British band, ed) a year ago I wrote an e-mail announcing exciting too the next tour Cure: The group will be in Italy in September to three dates and we should play before them. There are only the latest confirmations. " (Thanks Max)
Update (03/30/14): With Robert's comments about shows in late September, maybe there's some truth to this?
Update (04/14/14): New article in Rolling Stone Italy. No news on these supposed shows they say are happening. (Thanks @Pjotrke)
Update (05/08/14): "Spiral 69 says 'news very soon' on their FB when asking them about their support gigs of The Cure. So more announcements soonish." (Thanks @Pjotrke)
Update (05/14/14): Spiral69 now says "Cherry, vedrai che non si fermano agli States e se non sarà Settembre, sarà Ottobre." So they are saying that if the shows don't happen in September, they will
happen in October. Really hope they're not misleading fans about this. (Thanks fmjews)
