A few weeks ago the Cure announced plans for a massive North American tour, but only included a few specific details, like stops in New York and Los Angeles. Now, Robert Smith and crew have detailed the remaining shows, but for us here in Boston, the teases remain.

What is confirmed: The Cure will play Boston on June 16. But the where is still a mystery.

While most of the stops along “The Cure Tour 2016” have venues, the Boston date does not (“On-sale and show info announced soon,” reads the Cure’s notes). Judging from the rest of the dates along the band’s itinerary, the options include the XFinity Center in Mansfield, Blue Hills Bank Pavilion, or the TD Garden. Though if availability is a factor (will the Bruins or Celtics be battling in the playoffs come mid-June?), don’t rule out the DCU Center in Worcester. Another dark horse possibility: Agganis Arena.

Of course, we’re spitballing here. We’ll know more for sure very soon, most likely.

“The Cure will be playing 27 shows in 22 North America cities next Spring, their first major tour of the continent since 2008,” the band announced this morning. “During the past 7 years the band has performed a number of ‘Reflections’ shows in LA and NYC, and headlined most of the major festivals, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bottlerock, Osheaga, two Austin City Limits, three Riots and a Voodoo… “THE CURE TOUR 2016″ will present Robert Smith (voice/guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O’Donnell (keys) and Reeves Gabrels (guitar) as they explore 37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites and as yet unreleased tracks in a brand new stage production that promises to be the ‘must see’ show of the year!”
