The Cure fans, rejoice! If you're not into festivals or simply don't have enough money to splurge on tickets (plus airfare) to Coachella and Lollapalooza, you'll be ecstatic to find out that the legendary British post-punk band is embarking on its first full-fledged North American tour since 2008. Three shows have been confirmed for 2016's 25-date tour—including one June 18 at Madison Square Garden. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 9, at 10am, with online presale starting Thursday, October 8, at 10am. Given the Cure's epic 3-hour performance at the Beacon Theater in 2011—spanning three of their best albums and three additional encores for a total of 48 songs—we're pretty sure you won't want to miss out on this potentially life-changing concert experience. Let's just say it'll be "Just Like Heaven."

But just in case you do need further convincing, here's a video of the Cure performing "A Forest" live in 1992.
