  5. and just 2,158 seating capacity.... and I guess it's not so very unlikely they offer seats only like it's kind of common in the US :/

  8. This is a particularly special announcement! I lived in the Big Pineapple from 1992-1999 for grad school, and I really lost touch with The Cure during those years partly because there was no hope to ever see them. What a dream it would have been for me in those years! I am so happy for my friends in Hawaii! I wish I could go!

  9. I'm on vacation with my family doing some island-hopping, a fan of The Cure since 1979, we are on Kauai on concert-day (so near)...are there any packages to book (late flight from Kauai to Honolulu and early return flight back to Kauai including hotel)...any suggestions...
    thanx curiosa

    1. Stay on the North Shore side of the island (Kailua, Turtle Bay, etc...) if you want something peaceful. I just stayed at Turtle Bay Hotel resort and it is very nice. It's about a 1hr 20min drive to Honolulu if your with family. Honolulu can be to hectic.

  10. I just moved to honolulu from Milwaukee and was horrified when I heard they were playing lolapalooza. This just made my day thanx Robert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. I only hope that the Cure play a massive set of old songs. Hope to hear Splintered in her head Siamese twins all cats are grey etc. Fingers and toes crossed.

  12. Only 250$ for front row and a meet and greet! I would totally have done it, if it were feasible to get my ass to Hawaii!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am just going to walk there after work since I work four blocks away and lurk around to meet them can't afford $250

  22. Yeah, I think they might have staggered the release of those Front Row tickets. I got mine after about 15 minutes of trying, and a couple other friends got theirs also about 15 mins after that. So stoked right now!

  23. I was buying for three people so I didn't get any front row seats :/ But 11th row is not so bad!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yeah, there are 11 Front Row M&G tickets on Stubhub already!

  25. Stupid scalpers should be shot. I would have gotten meet and greet if I could have afforded. But alas I have to pay rent in a Waikiki right now and need to eat. My dilemma now is which nut to loose for some beers and a t shirt.

    1. I hear you there! I will tell you though, a year and half ago, for the LA Reflections shows, tickets for front row were on Stubhub for 1000 bucks, but the day of the show, I got one there for 275! Same price as my ticket today from TM!

      Delete
  26. Lucky. I would have loved to see one of those shows. Always bad timing for me when the cure play really cool shows. Mono what island you on?

  27. I ended up with 5th row which means that I will not be doing Chicago. Craig I have my Lolla tix for sale Face Value plus $5 shipping! :) Can you please spread the word. Thx!

    1. Yeah, seems to be quite a good number of excited Cure fans in the Islands. I see where you say you work 4 blocks from the Arena. Funny, so do I! We are planning on a few get togethers at either Kincaids or Ryans Grill for Happy Hour. I will have to leave early though for the show for the Meet and Greet. Wonder when they will send us the info on how that will work?

  32. So there are 15 more seats up grab them now on ticketmaster...row 2 3 and 4 of section 5 risers

  33. Too bad i cant' make the trip just sold my CC row 2 seats :( Its been too long since the reflections shows. I am holding RS to his words see you next year. either they will be going back and forth from the UK to the States this fall or they are gonna play some shows.....I don't think I have ever seen the cure tour the US during the summer less a festival. Announcements will come in September.

    ReplyDelete
  34. So as expected after posting about tickets available this morning....All of them were purchased and are on Stub hub......Guess what sclapers. If someone won't pay 300 for row 3 why would they pay that for risers. I hope they all eat their tix or sell to real fans for less than face value. To buy and resell at that small of a margin....why risk all that money to make 40$ of a ticket? Well enjoy the show!
