Opening night of The Cure Tour 2016 is finally here! If you are going to line up early, we would appreciate occasional updates on how long the line is. Will post more info throughout the day.
One big request/plea from me...if you are out there and hear soundcheck, please do not post the songs in the comments, or email/tweet them to me! This is my one chance to be completely surprised by the setlist, and I don't want any spoilers until after the 2 NOLA shows. If you have the soundchek info, I do want it, but send it in after Wednesday night's show. Thank you so much!
And another request for those up front or with good cameras, we need photos of the new guitars if they new stickers. Robert's, Simon's, and Reeves' if he has any new ones.
As always, I'll be posting the live setlist on Twitter, connection permitting, and they should show up here in the widget above. And I will get everything updated when I get home from the show. I will get photos/prices of all the new merch as soon as I get in and will post as soon as I can.
From Lakefront Arena:
ALL RESERVED SEAT TICKETS DO NOT HAVE FLOOR ACCESS.
FLOOR TICKETS DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO RESERVED SEATS.
Those guests with a Floor / General Admission ticket should enter under Ramp 4 at the Ground 4 entrance. Guests with reserved seats can enter up Ramp 1 or 4.
A wristband will be distributed upon entering the building to patrons with FLOOR tickets. Patrons must be present to receive a wristband. Both a wristband and floor ticket are required for floor access. When a wristband is received, the ticket will be punched, designating that a wristband was issued for this ticket. Wristbands will not be "re-issued" for any reason.
