Apply some eyeliner and prepare to sing along to all of Robert Smith's mopiest pop songs (don't call it "goth rock") as the Cure come to the UIC Pavilion for a two-night stand. The band was last seen headlining Riot Fest in 2014, but this pair of shows promises to be a career-spanning event, looking back on the group's 37-year career, complete with a new stage production. For longtime fans (or angst-ridden teens) it should be just like heaven. Scottish post-punk act the Twilight Sad will be supporting at both shows.
