If you were one of the many annoyed fans of The Cure after their pre-sale the other day, then the general on-sale was no picnic either. Barely any seats came out for their Saturday night performance in June at Madison Square Garden (How could a whole venue sell out that fast?). I was on Ticketmaster exactly at 10am when the on-sale was happening, I asked for 2 tickets and it made me wait for several minutes before telling me that it could not find any tickets to meet my criteria, but to keep trying. So I did. Tried and tried as I could, I kept getting the same message, then after what seemed like an eternity, I got a pair of tickets in one of the upper sections. I completed my purchase and then somehow noticed that there was a 2nd night listed for MSG in NY. This was not for the Saturday show, but it appeared that The Cure added a second night for June 19th (Sunday). Of course I was annoyed and excited at the same time. Annoyed, because I sat trying for so long and then took mediocre seats. Excited, because now I had a chance for better seats! I tried for the new Sunday show and of course after a short bit, I got seats on the floor, less then 19 seats from the stage and The Cure playing live in front of me! It just goes to show you that you shouldn’t give up. Yes, I spent a lot of money on all the tickets, but I will be able to see The Cure, one of my favorite bands of all time, perform live in concert. I hope you are as psyched as I am. As for the rest of the tour, we will have to wait until January to know the exact schedule.
By the way, the same thing happened out in Los Angeles for the Hollywood Bowl too. The first night The Cure put on sale sold out quite quickly, so they added two more nights which both have a few seats left as of now but will probably end up completely selling out. Good luck getting your tickets to see The Cure.
