We're getting amped for The Cure's long awaited concert this Thursday evening! Please read on for important event information to ensure you have a great night out.

Doors open at 6.30pm and The Cure are onstage at approximately 8pm, it will be a busy night so make sure you arrive in plenty of time to grab a drink and find your seat before the lights go out! If you selected to print your own tickets at home, please remember to print them out before you arrive.

Please enter via the entry door as stated on your ticket. If you've purchased seated tickets, you'll need to head up the stairs once you arrive. For doors 1-15 head up the stairs to your left, and for doors 16-30 head up the stairs on the right, there are bars and food outlets upstairs too. The general admission standing area can be accessed via the ground floor. Our ticket explanation guide has more information.

Make travel to the gig hassle free with the Uber smartphone app, Vector Arena has teamed up with Uber to offer a free first ride (up to $20) to new Uber users! Check out the full details here.

As there will be a high number of people coming on foot there will be on-street parking restrictions and road closures from approximately 5.30pm around the arena. Regretfully, the tow truck guys can be very enthusiastic, so please check the signage very carefully to avoid getting your night spoiled.

For official event parking less than a 5 minute walk to the arena, please visit, please be aware, due to high volumes of traffic there may be a delay getting away from the area.

If you're getting dropped off and/or picked up after the show, let your ride know about the designated passenger drop off zone near the footbridge on Quay Street, to avoid the road closures mentioned above. This is also the drop-off and pick-up location for Uber rides.

We're expecting the gig to end at 11pm, however, all show timings are approximate and open to artistic interpretation. Public transport details are available on the AT website, including details of additional late night train services on the western and southern lines, just for this show!

The Cure are renowned for having impressive and loud concerts, ear plugs are available from the information stand inside the arena between Entry D & Entry E and at the cloakroom nearby to Entry B.

Please double check our event details page on the day of the show just in case there are any last minute changes, you can also access it from The Cure event page on our website.

Enjoy the show!
