Update (Jan. 31st, 2019): Just a reminder that general sales start tomorrow morning (Feb. 1st) at 10 am eastern. There were lots of good, reasonably priced tickets available during the Citi presale, and hopefully some will be left for everyone trying for them tomorrow.
A couple of things to note, The Cure have not confirmed they will attend and play. Its assumed they will, as they haven't said they wont. The only band who have declined so far is Radiohead. All others are expected to play, even Roxy Music who are talking about getting back together just for this.
However, Lol Tolhurst is the only Cure to state publicly that he's going to be there. I hoped the band would make an announcement about this, one way or another, before ticket sales, but that looks unlikely. So if you buy tickets, just know that there's a possibility that The Cure wont be there. I bought mine and I'm just keeping my fingers crossed. :)
Also, even if they do play, don't expect a full set. Each band typically gets 3-5 songs.
That's it. Good luck and see you, and hopefully The Cure, in Brooklyn!

@CraigatCoF Interesting stuff : a friend working for universal has seen The Cure has just been added to their Q4 record release forecast files !— Eric le Curiste (@ericlecuriste) January 24, 2019
Obviously just a rumor at this point, but we can still be hopeful that this is true. 4th quarter would be Oct/Nov/Dec. Thanks, Eric.
When the Cure frontman curated 2018's Meltdown Festival in London, he personally invited Kælan Mikla to perform. "He was telling us it was nice, thank you for coming," says Matthildur of meeting Smith face-to-face for the first time after their performance. "We were thanking him, and he says, 'I have to run, but I will see you again.' Then he winked at us and walked away. It felt like a wink anyway." She laughs. "I liked it. It was nice and promising."

And if you haven't bought a copy of The Twilight Sad's new album, It Wont Be Like This All The Time, do so asap. It's excellent! Get it here or your local indie record shop.
