Cure news number two
autumn 1987


i hope you all managed to see the film and enjoy it as much as i did.  for those of you who asked. there's still no publishing date for the biography
'ten imaginary years', and as yet still no confirmed uk tour dates. hopefully, i'll be able to give you these dates with the next news sheet.

....returning from the much talked about south american tour in april for the release of 'why can't i be you?' and the premier, on 23 april, of
'the cure in orange' at the odeon marble arch in london. no time was wasted in heading north to newcastle the following day to perform 'catch',
'why can't i be you?' and 'hot hot hot' on the last ever episode of channel 4's 'the tube', with Roger O'Donnell joining the line-up on keyboards for the
first time. in may 'kiss me kiss me kiss me' was released to great critical acclaim worldwide, closely following by the release of 'catch'. just enough
time was allocated to perform the number on itv's new chart show, 'the roxy', before heading off to north america for an extensive six week tour.
and now....

love janie
