The Cure announce five further festival shows for this summer

The Cure have announced five further festival appearances for this summer.

The band, who confirmed earlier this week that they will be appearing at Hultsfred festival in Sweden as well as German festivals Southside and Hurricane, have now added a series of other European dates.

The Cure will headline Holland's Pinkpop on May 26, France's Les Eurockeennes, Denmark's Roskilde festival and the Heineken Jammin' and Rock In Roma festivals, which are both in Italy. They have yet to confirm any UK dates.

The band recently completed a run of dates, including one at London's Royal Albert Hall, which saw them performing their debut album 'Three Imaginary Boys' (1979), plus 1980's 'Seventeen Seconds' and 1981's 'Faith' in their entirety.

They also recently released a live album of their 2011 Bestival headline set in December. The 32-song, two-and-a-half-hour set was released on double CD, with all the profits from sales donated to the Isle Of Wight Youth Trust, a charitable, independent and professional organisation which offers counselling, advice, information and support services to young people aged 25 and under on the Isle of Wight.
