It's their first in 27 years...

The Cure have announced plans for a Scottish show - their first in over 20 years.

The legendary group last played Scotland in 1992, but will return North of the Border next summer to headline Glasgow Summer Sessions 2019.

The show takes place on August 16th, with Mogwai and The Twilight Sad in support. Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite told the NME: "When The Cure last played Scotland in 1992, I went to all four shows (Dundee, Glasgow and twice in Edinburgh), skiving school at least once. If I’d known that the wait to see them play here again would be so long, I’d have been very shocked. I’d have been even more shocked but more so delighted that I’d be in a band opening for them 27 years later."

"I’m beyond excited and honoured to be part of this bill. The Cure are my favourite band and getting to play with them in our home town alongside our great friends The Twilight Sad is something really special."

Tickets will go on sale from 9am on October 26th.
