The Cure has announced its Shows of a Lost World tour for this spring and summer, which will include three-night stands at both the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden in New York. The trek begins May 10 in New Orleans and concludes July 1 in Miami; the Twilight Sad will open.

A note from the Robert Smith-led band reads, “the Cure have set all ticket prices and, apart from a few Hollywood Bowl charity seats, there will be no ‘Platinum’ or ‘Dynamically Priced’ tickets on this tour.” Hopeful attendees must register through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program by March 13 for the on-sale two days later.

The upcoming tour is named after the Cure’s upcoming album, Songs of the Lost World, which has been in the works for years but does not have a release date. The group has performed several new songs live in recent months, including “And Nothing Is Forever,” “Alone,” and “Endsong.”

Starting with the Cure’s fall European tour, guitarist/keyboardist Perry Bamonte returned to the band for the first time since 2004. Songs of the Lost World will be the Cure’s first new studio album since 2008’s 4:13 Dream, a top 10 hit on Billboard’s Rock and Alternative charts.

Smith has also remixed Noel Gallagher’s new solo track “Pretty Boy,” which owes a noticeable sonic debut to the Cure’s classic “A Forest.” Says Smith, “I was surprised and delighted when Noel asked me to remix this gorgeous song, and I had a lot of fun slowing it down and spacing it out. Cure drummer Jason Cooper gave me a great vibe-y drum track to play along with, and the rest just phased into place under the starry sky of my distant moon.”
