Although all three shows are sold out, The Cure recently confirmed that they’re working on new music – having released last album ‘4:13 dream’ in 2008.

“I’ve listened to more new music in the last six months than I ever have,” said Smith earlier this month in a BBC 6Music interview.

“I’ve suddenly fallen in love with the idea of writing new songs, so it’s had a really good effect on me.”

He continued: “I booked some time to do some demos next month. Some of it’s really good, some of it not so good.

“I never wanted to be in a position where I was forcing myself to write, I’ve never felt comfortable with that.”
