The Cure - frontman Robert Smith along with long-time band members Simon Gallup (Bass), Jason Cooper (Drums), Roger O’Donnell (Keyboard) and Reeves Gabrels (Guitar) - will have support acts on the day from hometowners Mogwai, along with The Twilight Sad, and The Joy Formidable.

Tickets will go on sale from 9am this Friday, 26th October, priced at £59.95 plus fees and limited to 4 per-person.

Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai said: "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."

James Graham of The Twilight Sad: "Having toured the world with The Cure over the past few years, the one question we're always asked when we come home is "When are The Cure coming to Glasgow? Have a word with Robert please!". We're delighted that we can now share the stage with one of our favourite bands in our home town."
