Cure London shows update

Note: Lots of people selling tickets in the comments section, so if you're looking to buy or sell, take a look.

From Eventim: "Please note that the shows are scheduled to start at 7.15pm, slightly earlier than the time printed on your ticket. Doors will open at the scheduled time of 6.30pm." (Thanks Lars)

And all reports from fans getting their tickets from Ticket Factory say that they do NOT have names printed on them. The Eventim tickets DO have names printed on them.

Update (12-05-13): "I have a friend who works at Ticket Factory. i mentioned to him that there was no name on The Cure tickets I got via them and he has told me that I need to take the address docket that came with The Ticket Factory tickets with me on the night." (Thanks Adam)

And as it says on the Ticket Factory website: "Lead bookers names will appear on The Ticket Factory receipt enclosed with tickets; lead bookers will need to provide matching ID on the evening of the performance to gain access to the venue. "

So for those with Ticket Factory tickets, you will need to bring your ID and the receipt with your name on it, not just your ticket.

Update (12-11-14): Here's the email Ticket Factory sent out a few days ago:

Thank you for booking tickets for The Cure with The Ticket Factory!

With the shows being just around the corner we thought we would remind you of the following important information to make your visit a lot smoother:

• All customers will need to bring ID (photo ID or proof of address), which matches the name and address printed on The Ticket Factory receipt enclosed with the tickets.

• There will be a lot of people collecting tickets on the event days so we would advise that you arrive early in plenty of time

• Tickets can only be collected by the person who made the original booking, and are available to pick up only on the day of the show

•Letters authorising others to collect tickets on your behalf will not be accepted
(Thanks Benj)

Times have been announced for the shows, via And Also The Trees on Facebook:
6:30 - Doors
7:15 - 7:45 - And Also The Trees
8:15 - 11:00 - The Cure

  2. Hm, the fact that the show is starting earlier than scheduled, could that mean they plan to play more than 150 minutes...? :)

  3. Sorry if I re-post the same message, but don't think my last one went through. Anyway, we are two die hard Cure-fans from Norway in need of STANDING tickets to the show on the 21st. We have already booked plane and hotel, all we need now are concert tickets! :) If you have spare tickets to sell us, please e-mail me at hqfilm@gmail.com. (And webmaster, if this is the wrong place for such a request, feel free to deleate this comment. BTW, this is the best site on the web! Thanx for keeping us up to speed on our favourite band!)

  9. I was at the Kate Bush gigs where this was enforced and it worked well.There were no big queues and plenty of stewards to check that id matched the name on the ticket. Just get there early enough.

  10. Not disagreeing with the above comments but surely Ticket Factory should have made this clear when they sent the tickets out??? Sounds like someone made a blunder and now they're covering their mistake!

  17. Hey, can anyone recommend me a taxi to use after the event?

    I need to be on my coach at Victoria Coach Station for 11:30pm or risk being a lone female stranded in London.

    I don't care about the price, just one reliable and trustworthy enough to get me there on time.

    1. any black cab will be fine (cost £20 max) - getting one will be the issue so you may have to leave a tad early & you're more likely to get one if you're heading into london rather than away.

    2. you can easily tube from hammersmith (across the road from venue) to sloanesquare which is just around the corner from Victoria coach station ..

  21. Hello. Is anyone having a problem receiving their tickets from Ticket Factory? I was told they were sent out early last week via 2nd class post, but I still haven't received them. I emailed Ticket Factory and they said because they were standing tickets, no duplicates can be sent out. They seem to have been lost in the post and now it seems I might not be able to get in. Any advice is appreciated!

  27. just in case anyone find this info useful, I just called the Eventim Apollo to see whether I could transfer a ticket I can't use (accidentally booked for Tuesday and now I'm going on Monday) to my friend and they said I would need to provide the other person with a letter stating the last 4 digits of the card used, name and address, order number and also stating 'I authorise to have my ticket', and the other person needs to bring the letter, ticket and their id. So it is possible to do that, just in case anyone wondered...

  31. Hi. So I was wondering if the venue has any restrictions on when people get in line for the standing tixs or if anyone has experienced standing in line for general admission tixs? I was just thinking when I might need to get to the venue to ensure I get a decent spot. Thanks.

  40. so , just been on the Viagogo website and there are tickets for £200.00 ! it also states that you have to go into the gig with the seller due to the ID restrictions. Ha !!! imagine the awkwardness of meeting the f*ucker who has charged you £200.00 for a ticket and then walking into the gig with them ! ( if you are that foolish to buy it in the first place ..) imagine sitting next to them...cringe.....

  48. this might be of interest for people in London this weekend: On Saturday evening I'm fronting a one off Cure tribute act called The Prevention for Retrospectacular '89, a special event celebrating the year 1989 in music, at the Windmill in Brixton. We'll be doing most of the Disintegration album! We're on early, at 7.30, later on there'll be a full live playback of the Pixies' Doolittle and live karaoke of some of the hits of 1989. The Windmill is a short bus ride from Brixton tube station up Brixton Hill, you can also walk it in about 15 minutes, and is a unique and well loved venue, the Retrospectacular parties there tend to be really good good fun. Anyway, details here, maybe some of you can come along to help us feed the spiderman ;)http://windmillbrixton.co.uk/listings/events/20-dec-14-retrospectacular-1989-the-windmill/

  49. Have two standing tickets for Monday the 22nd for sale at face value. Can't attend due to ill health. Having spoken to Eventum customer services if the tix are from Eventim you can sell them on and write a letter of authorisation stating someone else can use them. As long as the person who buys them takes the letter and ID and the original tickets you shouldn't have a problem.
    If you are interested I will post tickets out tomorrow morning guaranteed for Monday delivery. Happy to pay delivery costs
