Cure ticket news: Keep waiting
From someone who knows:
"It keeps getting pushed back; tour materials are still being worked on so we’re holding back the on-sale. Still no definite date yet. Looks like it won’t be until March."
In case you hadn't heard, the show is scheduled for Monday, May 19 at Starlight Theatre. Tickets will be $40 to $75.

(Thanks Scott)

Cure Ticket Alert System

For those who have asked, yes, I'll be doing the ticket alert system for the "added shows" on the North American 4Tour. So if you are interested in getting ticket info, password info, etc. for any of the shows listed below, just e-mail me ( and let me know which show(s) you want info for.

May 28th - San Jose, Ca.
June 4th - Phoenix, Az.

For those of you who are new or for those who have forgotten, the ticket alert system is a private e-mail list that I set up for each city. When I get any info about tickets, I send out an e-mail to everyone on that list. That way you don't have to keep checking websites every hour.

Cure cover

"Nouvelle Vague recorded their take on A Forest for their first album. I've just seen them in Oxford and they've added a stunning cover of 100 Years. They also started off the set with their two Cure songs back to back."

Cure SMH-CD's delayed/canceled

If you were interested in any of those Cure SMH-CD's, bad news from The Ideal Copy:

"Unfortunate news - Those Japanese Cure Mini-LP Sleeve CDs that were due next month have been Delayed/Cancelled. We don't know the reason why, but speculate that either the band stepped in, or the label wants their release to coincide with a Cure tour of Japan, and the earliest that would happen is late Summer/Fall 2008. If you Pre-Ordered, we will be contacting you and refunding/cancelling the order."

New Album Release Date

In their review of the Hamburg show, German radio station NDR2 says the new album is being released on June 28th. One problem with that, the 28th is a saturday. New albums are almost always released on monday or tuesday.

As I posted a week ago, Universal now has the album scheduled for release on May 6th in the US. Will that hold? Who knows, but that's what they have right now. If I hear of any changes, I'll get them posted asap.

Update: As Lars posted in the comments, that June 28th date is false. The reporter was using the date for the release of 'The Cure' in 2004.
