Further to a teaser tweet from The Cure last month – indicating that they would play Dublin on Saturday, June 8, 2019…

MCD Productions announced the band will play Malahide Castle, Dublin, on that date.

It’ll be the first time The Cure has played in the capital in 23 years.

MCD also announced George Ezra will play Malahide Castle on June 21, 2019, Irish Independent Park in Cork on June 20, and Ormeau Park in Belfast on Saturday, June 22.


They move like cagey tigers.
