THE CURE have kicked off their first tour since their run of Summer Festival shows in 2019 with a 25-song set at the Arēna Rīga in Riga, Latvia.

The band played two new songs, Alone and Endsong, which topped and tailed a main set stuffed with CURE classics. Fan-shot videos of both performances are below.  

The band embarked on the run of 44 shows without conforming the arrival of a new album, despite frontman Robert Smith telling the NME in May, “I get fed up of saying this now! We will be playing from October and the new album will be out before then."
It's not the first time fans of THE CURE – who haven't released a studio album since 2008's 4:13 Dream – have been promised that new material is imminent, and it's been more a year since Smith revealed that two albums were almost ready to go.
THE CURE's Lost World Tour resumes in Helsinki on Saturday evening.
