GOOD LUCK COF PEEPS!!!I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya!
Yes, good luck to all. :)
I SCORED !!!!!!!!A PIT TICKET!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congrats, Paul! :)
So here's what happened to me. At my first attempt I got a ticket in the FRONT ROW section 101 seat one Row A!!! Not bad!!!! I wanted the pit, but hey this is as close as you can get to the stage and still have somewhere to sit down.Then just to see if I could get a pit ticket I tried again - about a dozen times it was giving me worse seats but then I kept trying and a PIT ticket came up....wooooooooo-hoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!Anyone want to buy my other ticket in the front row????
Way to go Paul K and Sara B!
Live reports from me!!!! LOLThey're going to debut new songs from the Dark album......... yeah that's what's going to happen alright hehe
I got Pit for me and plainsong!!! Woo Hoo! PS-if you are reading this from London - YAY!!!!
if it says pit arent available try them one at a time...it should work we got pit too!
It's going to be a COF pit!!
yeah it worked when I pushed the General Admission button, as oppossed to choosing "Best Available"
COF PARTY IN THE PIT !!!!!!!!!!
I got busy working and looked late, at like 10:30 PST. I still picked up a couple of floor tickets. Lucky for me I found a friend with a Citi card. :)
Hell yeah COF party in the pit!
cof partayy!!!! i will bring a beach ball and write COF all over it then toss it around! or maybe i should do that at coachella lol
There are still plenty of pit tickets available, even if you ask for TWO.
I went and looked at where my other ticket is on the map thingie and it's on the aisle in the front row - kind of like the best seat in the house (if you don't want to stand in the pit.)email me if you'd like to buy firstname.lastname@example.org
What's the cost after TM fees?
What is the best bet to get tix? (I'm buying it on Saturady)Individually or "GENERAL ADMISSION" with "BEST AVAILABLE" ? Because I'm scared if I get individual, I won't able to get another one because it sold out.WHAT TIME IS EVERYONE LINING UP?
Okay I am getting kind of confused here. I bought general admission, floor, no chairs. I did not see anything that specifically said pit. Did I buy the wrong tiks because I'm reading people saying theirs actualy say pit. Or am I misunderstanding?
Floor and pit are the same thing.
Also, should I put "ANY PRICE" ?
Miss Cure don't worry, you're in the pit"Pit" is slang for general admission
Miss Cure, sounds to me like you got just what you wanted and will be right there in front of RSX! "Pit" is just another way of saying "floor, no chairs." I am GREEN with jealosy!
kiss I would try General Admission with Best price first, then if that don't work go for Best Available. If you are buying more than one ticket I personally wouldn't try to buy one pit ticket at a time or you may end up sitting apart. That's just me though I don't know everythingPS - sorry for posting so much I'm just a little excited this morning!!
Thanks Craig, Paul and Jeff. That was my understanding, but then I started to get all nervous when I was reading everything. Yay! I can't wait! Now I just have to get rid of my tiks to Coachella on Friday night! I'm wondering if I should get rid of Saturday night too, just in case!
My friend just called the venue and the floor only holds 100 people.
Whoa!! Only a hundred people, well aren't we special!!!Let's party you guys
omg 100 people!!! wow!!!i call a spot in front of porl!!! lol
No more floor available! My friend just called. Maybe they will release some on Saturday!
100 peeps! Wow!
According to the Pearl building specs found here:http://www.palmspearl.com/pdf/PearlConcertTheater.pdfSeating Capacity:Arena floor set-up is only 390 with an additional 1723 fixed seats in the theatre style raked floor, mezzanine, and balcony. The floor of the theatre is 3,294 square feet of open space. All 17 bar stations throughout the theatre are completely out of sight from the stage on all levels.Also:Capacity: 2240 W/ Seated floor, 615 Balcony, 900 Mezz, 730 Floor, 264 Boxes.2400 W/ GA floorThere are many diagrams, if anyone would like to interpret the "GA/pit" capacity
Technically speaking, I could afford to go to this show, but I have the money slated to go toward a new camera and a decent lens for it, and as much as I might like to instead use that money for concert and plane tickets, this thing is a potential money earner for me, So I really can't. However, to those who are going, have fun!
special thanks to Sarab543 and ChrisP for holding a tix for me. I feel so lucky.:)
Shawn,in that case can I borrow your camera to take really cool pictures of The Cure while they play Las Vegas? I'll return it shortly after.
That was super confusing. So I am guessing there are more than 100 pit.
So what if we got GA with a seat? I am so confused
Great info Kate!I saw a few shows at The Pearl and it's a good venue. No matter where you sit, you get a good view but the pit is the best. So enjoy it COF Pit Peeps!!! The pit at The Pearl Rules!!! Nice to see it will be one big COF Party.
I got 9 tickets! 5 in balcony, 4 on floor! I am obviously taking the floor ones...I have 3 extras for the balcony!
my ga tickets have seat numbers, but i think they put that on all tickets.cure_kitty: how strict is the pearl with cameras?i'm so psyched! vegas then coachella! :)
OKay so my friend said that when she called the first time the box office was closed so she spoke with some random guy. The guy said he thought the floor only held about 100. She just called the actual box office right now that they are open and they said about 700. So 700!
700? That sux
So Kate, I would say your 730 floor seats is perfect, great way to find the correct info.
jilly---I was able to get mine in with no problems but they do post the 'No Cameras Allowed Rule" at all entrances. Just take something small or use your cell phone if it has a camera, you should be ok with that.
Wooo! Mystery solved!
your welcome andyboo!so we now have 3 extra pit tickets left for other fellow cof peeps.we need to check with our fellow LOLdon peeps and see if they need them - we got them for them - but if they are covered - then we will have 3 pit tickets to sell.i cant believe that many pit tickets were available! this is the best presale selection i have ever seen!!
I'm quite surprised there are so many available too. Usually this never happens at a pre-sale but I'm glad you are all getting good tickets now! That floor will be packed tight with COFers!
thanks cure_kitty. i'll find a place to hide it.
Gah! I want to go! Maybe I will ditch Coachella for Vegas!
I got pit too!
Looks like i'm not gonna be able to afford this. I'm dissapointed. I knew they would do another date in the U.S. after they announced Coachella. Maybe they'll do something else before heading back to the UK?Hoping to see them live and in concert again somewhere soon. I need my fix. Have fun all those in London tonight and those going to Coachella and Vegas. I'm sooooooo jealous!
Xploding_Boy awesome you got your tickets!!!! Can't wait to see everyone again!
ChristinaP, do you still have any pit tix left? i need pit in order to get close to tape the show! : ) Please let me know if I can get a pair? And of course I'll be making my recording available.
crowbi-wan - YOU ROCK!!!I met you at SJ, waved at you in SB and the Bowl, I think.
@ love-the-cure, you're friends with Gina, right? If so, yes, that was me you met and waved at ;)
hey crowbi-wan!im waiting to hear from some peeps in london - they are at the awards show right now. but as soon as i hear from them - if they don't need the tickets - then sure i'll sell you a pair!seems like there is a surplus of pit tix - so you probably won't have any probs getting your hands on some! ill email you when i find out ok? is your email posted in your profile?
Thanks Christina! You can e-mail me at email@example.com
All this talk is making me think I should bite the bullet & go to Vegas? I’m in the same boat as shawn & spcdesigns. Should I charge the trip? I could go but then that's adding another $1000 or so to my ever growing CC debt! No I can’t do it. I’m already spent $600 bucks (and will spend more) on a big trip to NYC next month to see another band. The only option I have left is playing the Powerball Tonight! It’s worth $150,000,000 & it might be the only way I can go to the show if I won. Like that’s ever going to happen! LOL!!!Never mind my babbling, I’m just having a pity party for myself. Tell me to shut up if you want too!!! Hopefully later in the year or next year there will be more Cure events to go to.Have fun peeps, I'm glad for you all! Truly I am!
Just went on Ticketmaster. Looks like a couple floor spots are still available. My friend Just pulled up 8 more.
Just went on Ticketmaster. Looks like a couple floor spots are still available.
damn!pit heaven! :D
Yep, GA/Pit still available!
and cure kitty!!DO IT!!!ITS VEGAS!!! AND THE CURE!!!Actually i could give two shits about vegas - have no desire to visit there - only our boys could get me there!i got a pit ticket for you if you want it!! :Drates are cheap!!
Yes, crowbi-wan, that's me! Can't wait to see you in Vegas.
and LOVE!!cant wait to FINALLY meet you!!!
Well it looks like everyone I know got PIT tickets! This has never ever happened in the history of The Cure! :) Very exciting. I knew there was a reason I had a Citi-card ;)
Oh thanks Christina! I'm still thinking about it! I have to do some financial analysis. It's not so much the ticket prices but the flight & hotel costs that might do me in. If I decide to go & you still have the ticket, I'll take it.It's going to be an awesome show! I've got to think it over, I just might do it!!!
I just got my Pit tickets too!!! See you all there.
Hi Alexis, I just got my ticket!!!! Just got back from the NME Awards show... OHHHHHH HELL YEAH!!!!! IT WAS GREAT FUN!!!!! I'll see you guys in March!!!! And in April... CHEERS!!!!!
There are still many pit tickets available. I also searched for BEST AVAILABLE MEZZ tickets and the best I got was row M 203!I've been lucky with presales!
Meee toooo! Pit! See you all there!Sara K
Just scored a pair of pit tickets. :) YEAH!!!
woo hoo crowbi_wan!!!
What time is everyone lining up?
woo hoo is right! Man am I jazzed for this show even more now. The stress over getting tickets always drives me nuts.
christinaP---Thanks again for your offer, it was very nice of you do so. But I'm going to have to pass since I'm not going to be able to make it. I hate to miss it but it's just not in my budget right now. Maybe if The Cure do more shows later in the year, I'll be able to get to one. Have a good time with the entire COF Pit crew!
Pit...Vegas....The Cure....all our Cure friends....thank you, God!And, thank you too Robert! :)

I have two extra GA/"pit" tickets if someone needs them after Saturday's onsale...MissCure can bring them you you guys for me and get the cash from you or you can paypal me. They are hard tickets, not ticketfast ;)
I pulled floor tix, too! Couldn't believe it. This show is gonna be AMAZING.Fellow travelers from the east coast, take note: I picked up an EXCELLENT RT fare on Virgin America from JFK to Vegas nonstop this afternoon. Is there a good comfortable bar in the Palms where we COF peeps can meet up? I don't plan on lining up terribly early if at all. The front is usually too crowded for dancing!Soooooooo psyched.-angel.
if anyone gets extra pit tix with there citibank card. Im looking for two.
Hey everyone! Remember me? I met a bunch of you at the last LA appearances. I got 2 floor tix and since none of my immediate friends are big Cure fans, I've offered my other ticket to Beaver. If he doesn't want it, I've got an extra ticket to sell at face value.Can't wait to see everyone again, and this time I won't get kicked out! :)
Hey Maggie thats awesome that you were over there at the NME awards show. Make sure to send us a request for the March shows. Im looking forward to seeing all the COF family again in Vegas! Oh yeah and Sue as long as you dont say anything to the guys in charge of the line theyll usually let you in. That sucked what happened at Kimmel. We tried talking to the guy right before they let us in but he wasnt hearing it. Anyway Jennifer and I are looking forward to hanging out what everyone again. P.S. So where are we all partying after the show?
Yeah Sue, so sorry about what happened at Kimmel. I asked the guy in charge to give you one more chance and let you in, at first he seemed irritated and for a second I was actually worried he would kick me out for asking. Then he just said no, she can't come in. :(
Hi there, does anyone have 2 pit tickets they can sell me?
I may need another pit ticket. Please keep love in mind if you have an extra one. :) thanks.
Hey Sue, It's good to hear from you! That sucks what happen at Kimmel! After all those long hours in the rain! It will be nice to see you again and hang out in line.
imapixie has 2tiks for pit. She is not going for sure so whoever is interested let me know!
miss cure I'm really intrested in the pit tickets can you let know asap how much they are? Please. thanks =-)
imapixie Hi I'm intrested in the tickets can you paypal me?
Will any ticket be availabe this Saturday?I talked with my husband tonight. It took for a while to convince him but he allowed me to go to Las Vegas at last.All I need is a ticket.;-)
Junko.....I may have one ticket on the balcony? I live in Vegas...
GA/Pit tickets are still available for sale from TM...
And here I was so scared I wouldn't be able to get tickets, much less pit ones, and everyone (including me!) has them!!! I wonder if no pit tickets will be available for the general sale?
You know what. I've already seen so many pit tickets listed on eBay with unreasonable prices. I feel so sad. :-( They bought those thickets only for making money. They belong to the real Cure fans, don't they?
People suck! I will sell my extras at face value.
Anyway, I'll try to get a ticket this Saturday, but if I failed, then I think I need to ask your help. Fingers crossed*
Yay! So good to hear from everyone. And thanks to all of you for sticking up for me! Cure fans rock! Can't wait for Vegas!
YAY! Early line up! What time is everyone lining up and where are you staying?
Hi.I don't mean to go off the subject.. which is how to score pit tickets, lol. But I just wanted to tell you guys last night I saw BLONDIE at the Fillmore in San Francisco. She was still lots of fun.Does anybody happen to know why I have to reset my password every time I try to post on the web site??Paul K
is because I have to Sign In?
I think doors open at 7pm....I am thinking people will be lining up way before then???
Yay!! I was able to purchase 2 "GA Floor General admission tickets no chairs" = pit tix. I am so excited !!!! Thank you to Brian for the help!!
All of this good news gives me such a warm, fuzzy feeling that so many COF peeps are getting pit tickets!Wonder if all of you can fit into the front row??? Good Luck!!!
i will be in front of porl! :) whatever it takes! lol
I will be in front of Simon, whatever it takes!
I'll be in front of Robert!!
Sara, Love, Happy---I know you all can do it! COF Kitties Rule in the PIT!
Who else is going to Coachella? It would be fun to turn it into a whole crazy Curefan weekend. We could caravan to Coachella from Vegas.
there are still plenty of floor tickets through ticketmaster right now...I just checked and was able to pull up 8 <3
Being in front of any of them is my plan. HAHA.
Thank you for posting the code. I could get a pit ticket. Now I need to book a flight and a hotel.:-D
Hey you guys - Do you want to plan a COF meet and greet at the Palms hotel bar before the show? How about meeting at the GhostBar?? How perfect is that - we can call it the Hungry Ghost Barcheck it out:http://www.palms.com/nightlife_4.php
Pit tickets are definitely still available. When I searched, it gave me three of them. I almost bought them, but I'm going with my parents (I turned my parents into Cure fanatics) and my mom's back probably won't last that long (little does she know, you don't feel pain when you see The Cure live). But I want my family to have the best experience possible, and worrying about getting close is definitely stressful.
Hey ghanisbuli, nice to hear that you're going. The more Seattle representation the better! : )
paul that sounds like fun but do you have to be 21 to be in the bar? -_-
Pual, the Ghostbar doesn't open until 8. We'll all be at the show!
Good point there Sara. We need a normal restaurant that serves alcohol, not a bar. That way everyone can go.
More like, we should all (of us who are 21+) hit the Palms clubs AFTER the show. Maybe the band will come too?
no fair ghanisbull! lol i doubt the band would go to clubs tho... but what do i know?
Hey, I had to wait a long time until I was over 21 :).I think the band went to clubs when they were younger, but I don't know about now. There tends to be some sort of an after party, and since the hotel is a perfect place for that, you never know.Either way, since all us Cure fans are in the same place at the same time, it could be fun to meet up.
yeah that would be fun. i can go to places as long as they dont check IDs at the door and just wait til they tell me to leave :P
vegas is very strict with I.D.'s. i read that you can't line up early until about 30 minutes before the door opens?????? and that security sux and it causes mayhemm when the pit opens
I heard you cant line up at all. its a fire hazard. just gotta act lk ur doing something til the doors open i guess
then it'd be another troub show, right? to work out who came first...etc......numbered hands....? i lined up for Depeche mode though ..hmm..maybe make a line outsdie
you would think these venues would have this line up thing down pat my now. Vegas 2000 hardrock show - made us wait in line outside. 12 hours in the Vegas heat, no shade, hit 120º, water was $3 a bottle. numbered hands is allways a good idea. be polite, if you know somebody stayed out longer then you then dont push in front of em.
Unbelievable!GA/pit tickets are still available!
yeah so I don't really see the point in lining up early to get on the floor unless you're trying to get close to the stage but I'm not the kind of person that needs to rush the stage, I'm sure anywhere you're standing on the floor will be close enough.
you know what's wrong with scoring that killer spot right infront of Robert? 1. An inconsiderate tall person decides it's ok to push their way in front of you and stand there looking all innocent 2. You have to go to the bathroom and 3. You need another drink, but you're wedged in there so tightly getting out will be hard and getting back to where you were impossibleSigned,Frequent Concert Goer
I want to be in front of Simon. I love watching him all night and then having him getting all embarrassed when he notices I'm watching him and trying to get his attention. IT IS ALL WORTH IT THOUGH. :)
lol love!!!! Paul- I HATE when tall people cut in front of me. then when you try to get in front of them they wont let you! like they own the spot or something!
love, have you ever been at a concert where you swear that one of the band members is staring at you the whole time? I don't know idf it's an optical illusion but I swear that keeps happening to me. Like during the last tour I always seemed to be in front of Porl and I swear he was starting to recognize me plus come onto me with his suggestive staresLOL!!!!
love, looks as though we will be competing for the same spot.
I'm trying to pull up a pit ticket and when it comes up it says Row G04 Seat 28. What's up with that??? It also says Floor General Admission Standing, No Chairs.
this is going to be one hell of a night....the palms don't know what they are getting themselves into!
