The Cure to Play Dallas at an Undisclosed Location in May 2016

If you were beginning to worry that you'd never have the chance to break out your extra sad black mascara again, fret not, Dallas: The Cure are coming back to Dallas in the spring of 2016. Back in October, the goth legends announced their first run of North American dates since 2013, with their last proper tour of the States coming all the way back in 2008 — which is when they last visited Dallas, at American Airlines Center.

Where exactly Robert Smith and the boys-who-don't-cry will be playing when they visit town on May 15 isn't clear yet; this morning's announcement has the venue listed as TBA. But that's a minor detail at this point. What we do know is that the Cure will be hitting the road with the Twilight Sad, whose song "There's a Girl in the Corner" Smith actually covered (as their own B-side!) earlier this year. So there's a little bit of synergy between the two.

The tour kicks off less than a week before the Dallas date, with a show in New Orleans on May 11. It passes through Austin and Houston before hitting Dallas for its fourth stop. Ticket prices and on-sale dates are yet to be announced as well, but here's the full list of shows for the surprisingly undramatically named "The Cure Tour 2016:"
