The Cure have confirmed headlining appearances at three European summer music festivals, marking their first scheduled performances in 2012. According to the band’s website, Robert Smith and co. will appear at Sweden’s Hultsfred Festival and Germany’s Hurricane and Southside Festivals in June. Additional European festival appearances will be announced in the near future.

The Cure last performed live in November when they relived their first three albums during a series of concerts in New York, Los Angeles, and London. You can find our review of the Los Angeles performance here.

The band also headlined England’s Bestival music festival in the summer of 2011 and you can watch footage of them performing “Close to Me” below. The performance was also released as a double CD set in December.
