I would suggest to the band & management that the next time they do a show like this they make sure that the ticketing procedures are above board.

It was horrendously short-notice with the ticket sales. Usually people get a lot of time between the tickets being announced and put up for sale to the date of the gig. One other annoying thing to lead on from your gripes Scotty would be ticket touts, selling hard-to-get tickets for a small fortune to a genuine fan desperate to go.

Apparently the ticket maximum purchase was 4/person. It would be interesting to know just how many seats there were in total & how many ended up for sale and/or distribution...

I'm right there with you guys. I got up at 5:30am in order to be ready to get tickets but didn't manage to, and then 10minutes later there they are on ebay for 4 times the amount or more....

Hey Melody, spot-on on the OH site. It obviously wasn't designed for the sort of demand that someone like The Cure would produce.

Ditto all above comments... now how do we stay informed of any potential Sydney shows at other venues or extra dates... you can't come all this way for 2 performances!

hello,i was lucky to get tickets,gave up and went online about an hour later and scored two.of course im happy,but saying that having/not having tickets it seems a shame for the fans, for the band to come all this way for two shows.i wonder if they will return to oz and how long it will be.theres heaps of venues around sydney and the fans wouldn,t mind seeing a stripped down show without all the fancy lights etc,horden pavillion,metro,enmore etc etc.

i think the cost of the tickets could've been higher to a degree as to offset those who bought them to on sell, especially for this extremely ouspicious occasion.

I got row 5 in the pre-sale. I got my tickets pretty much as soon as they went on sale. I am wondering if any of the rows in front of row 5 were on sale during the pre-sale and the other botched up sale. It seems so many of the first three rows were on ebay.

I had row three. F row, to the side, right in front of Simon. I got that in the ticketmaster pre-sale. So, I can confidently say, not all the first three rows were from ebay. I also know others in those rows who got their tickets in the pre-sales.

So no the front rows weren't bought by just ebay sellers. And by the way, the people selling them on ebay at exhorbitant prices were told in no uncertain terms,exactly what type of people they werecosmicnights wrote:

I'm so glad we got the seats that we had! Both shows were amazing, didn't you think? It was also fun meeting people and recognising people from here. I think collectively, most of us sold spare tickets at face value to other fans. We'll do even better next time and push those scalper scum right out of the market!

It was such a brilliant experience seeing The Cure live, I danced most of the night :) It was actually the best night of my life, I had such an amazing time.
Did you meet Simon?!
I hope all is well :)

Hi Songsabouthappiness! I am so glad to hear how much you loved your first Cure show! Awesome. I thought both shows were excellent, I enjoyed the second night much more though. Did you go to the fan meet up? I went the first night, but not the second. It's a shame I didn't get to meet you!
Yes, I did meet Simon. I thought he was very kind and lovely.

No I didn't end up going to the fan meet up however I met a Cure fan at the concert who I follow on Tumblr :) Maybe we can meet up next time? I can't wait to see them play live again :) Wow, how did you meet him? He sounds wonderful :) Were you lucky enough to get through the stage door after the concert?Songsabouthappiness wrote:
