May 30th (9:47 PM): Last minute ticket info from Xuan - "I went to the Opera house booth and asked if some tickets would possibly released. He said often, they still hold a couple of seats and release them during the day or possibly right before the show. So for anyone who is in Sydney, any hopes of getting tickets is to keep checking the front booth (dread). If the answer is it's still sold out, then come back again (rinse repeat)."

Original post - May 27th (5:51 PM): The Cure have made it safely to Sydney, all systems are go, and Qiong gives us a report:
"I've been very lucky to catch up with the band this morning @ Sydney Airport. The band are in great shape although Roger complained the flight was too long.
Robert seems a lot slimmer than ever, seriously. Looks so much better. When he stepped out, the first spot of him made me think of his late 80s, rejuvenated ahhhh?? which is an awesome sign !!!
I've attached a far shot of Robert leaving in the van from Sydney Airport Parking lot.
I also uploaded a video I took this morning when Robert was stepping out the terminal." (Thanks Qiong)
