The Cure is making a triumphant return to Mexico City with their ‘Shows of a Lost Word’ tour after a four-year hiatus.

But for some fans, the news brings mixed feelings as they had hoped to see Robert Smith and the band perform solo, rather than as part of the Corona Capital 2023 festival.

This marks a significant moment for The Cure as they share the Mexican stage with other artists for the first time.

Their past performances at venues like the Palacio de los Deportes and the Foro Sol add weight to the anticipation.

To reassure fans, Robert Smith himself has promised extended sets of over two hours at each stop on their Latin American tour, a comforting melody for their devoted followers.

Robert Smith’s social media messages have echoed his commitment to delivering performances lasting at least 150 minutes during their Latin American shows.

Accompanied by opening acts Twilight Sad, Just Mustard, and Slowdive, the stage is set for a musical journey that builds to The Cure’s enchanting performance.

However, the scenario changes slightly for Mexico. The Cure is set to headline the final day of the Corona Capital 2023 festival, standing alone in the spotlight.

This decision has stirred some disappointment among local fans who had yearned for an exclusive night with their beloved band.

Yet, performing at an event as prominent as Corona Capital comes with its own dynamics. Set times are often adjusted to fit all performers, and here, fans trust Robert Smith’s assurance that The Cure will close the main stage, offering their immersive compositions while honoring the other acts’ time.

Beyond the music, the inclusion of The Cure in the festival lineup has sparked discussions. Robert Smith’s public stand against Ticketmaster in the United States for fair ticketing practices is known.

But in Mexico, a different approach prevails, with Robert Smith having no influence over ticket sales, even within the festival’s context.

Mark your calendars for November 17, 18, and 19, when the Curva 4 of the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez transforms into a haven for music enthusiasts.

Blur, Pulp, The Cure, and The Pet Shop Boys are set to grace the stage, each adding their distinct notes to the harmonious festival experience.
