The Cure have canceled their U.S. tour, explaining on their website that they still had a way to go to finish their double album, "With all apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment it may cause, we have made a decision to move the September/October 2007 North American Cure shows to April/May 2008. Just finishing up their first tour of Australia in seven years, the often embattled band decided that they wanted to not only finish their upcoming album, but also to change up their live shows. "We want to remodel/rework the live show for North America, change things around, incorporate new songs ... and we still need time and focus to do that. But having said all that, the band will still headline the San Francisco Download Festival on October 6 and perform at the MTV Latin American Awards on October 18. But be rest assured, the man who has made his fortune chronicling depression and alienation is feeling just fine. Robert Smith told New Zealand's Star Times that he is in a good place. "I am as happy as I could possibly be…I love making music, and I love living...just down the road from where I was born." And in case you're wondering, he never ever wears his trademark MAC make-up Ruby Woo while tooling around the English countryside, but insists, " I don't look that different when I'm off stage than when I'm onstage, except I wear a lot more make up on-stage."
