Ever since the Cure announced their 2016 North American tour last month, one of the big mysteries was the location of the Boston date.

The legendary British band’s tour itinerary included a June 16 stop in Boston, but the venue and ticket on-sale information was left “to be announced.”

Today, it looks like Pollstar spilled the beans: The Cure will play Agganis Arena on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. Though the show is not listed on either the Cure’s official website or the Boston University arena’s homepage, this news has been confirmed by Live Nation.

Columbus alt-rock duo Twenty One Pilots are playing Agganis on June 14 and 15, so the venue will be stage-equipped and suited for a concert when the Cure roll into town. (They previously played Agganis back on May 12, 2008.)

Scottish rock band the Twilight Sad will open the show. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
