The Cure is a British band widely seen as one of the leading pioneers of the British alternative rock and post-punk scenes of the 1980s.
The Cure released their first single "Killing an Arab" to both acclaim and controversy: while the single's provocative title led to accusations of racism, the song is actually based on French existentialist Albert Camus' story The Stranger.
The Cure is known for having constant member changes, the most recent being in 2005, although it was the first change in 10 years, a Cure record.
The Cure headlined various festivals around Europe, including Glastonbury for a 2nd time, gave the royalties from their live album 'Entreat' to their 10 favourite charities, recorded the single 'Never Enough', and released 'Mixed Up', a collection of remixes old and new by such luminaries as Mark Saunders and William Orbit.
The Cure hit the road once more with 'The Swing Tour', their biggest to date, and as the four singles 'The 13th', 'Mint Car', 'Strange Attraction' and 'Gone' were released to growing acclaim, the band played over 100 extraordinary concerts to increasingly rabid crowds around the globe.
The Cure will be playing a limited number of small promotional shows in Europe and the USA around the February 2000 release date, before setting off around the world again for a full-scale 'Dream Tour' very soon after...
