Rumor: Cure play Pinkpop festival in May?

"It is rumored that the Cure will play The Pinkpop festival in The Netherlands in the weekend of 26-28 May. This morning radio 3FM dj Giel had a phone conversation with the organizer and he said that they have been on the shortlist for a couple of years. He confirmed that there have been negotiations before Christmas, but nothing definitive yet. The organizer memorized the epic 1986 Cure performance at The Pinkpop festival which helped ‘save’ the festival which experienced some bad years…..especially in 1985." (Thanks Peter)

"According to the website festileaks.com will the Cure play Pinkpop. Jan Smeets, the big Pinkpop boss, seems to spread the word, but he will not officially confirm it." (Thanks Anja)

Just another rumor at this time, and nothing confirmed or official. As always, until a show is listed at the official site, it isn't happening. But lets hope for some good news soon.


  1. Would be cool if it's true. It's been nearly four years since their last show in The Netherlands, so a return would be appreciated. Then again, I'd rather have them finish their next studio album and doing a proper tour afterward. We'll see I guess.

  2. I hope they come !!!! i already planned to go this year...this would be so great !!!

  3. Can't wait to see the news on thecure.com...
