My forthcoming book CUREPEDIA - An A-Z Of @TheCure is published by @WhiteRabbitBks later this year, and today @TheQuietus have run an extract as part of their #GothWeek. The first entry in the book, in fact: an essay on "A Forest". I hope you enjoy it... https://t.co/0pWKj2kgxg pic.twitter.com/B2bJpoO0bj— Simon Price﮷ (@simon_price01) March 17, 2023

HAVE BEEN TOLD "We will continue to sell tickets to those who are verified until there are no more tickets to sell" -X— ROBERT SMITH (@RobertSmith) March 15, 2023
The verified fan sale is today. Congratulations to everyone who got in! For all of us put on the waitlist, best of luck in getting picked to participate today.
According to the venues, there were supposed to be some normal, no registration needed, presales on Thursday and general on sales Friday. But if the above tweet from Robert/TM is accurate, it sounds like they may sell out today. Who knows? Let's see what happens, and if they don't sell out, hopefully those presales will happen tomorrow. Good luck to us all!
Update: Doesn't look like those presales are happening now. Austin had all the details listed in their website, but now that has been removed.

Been asked a couple of questions about the presale and here are some answers.
What time will we know today if we were selected?
"The night before the sale – we’ll let you know if you’ve been invited to shop. The invitation process may vary from event to event, and invitations are based on demand and ticket availability.
The morning of the sale – if you were invited, you’ll receive a text message to the number you provided during registration. Your text will include your unique access code and a link to shop. Keep an eye out for this text and be careful that you don’t accidentally delete it.
Once the sale begins, use the link provided to get started. You’ll enter your access code exactly as it appears to shop for tickets."
What time does the presale start?
Venues are listing it for 10 am local time. So if that's right, the sales will roll out over 4 hours starting with the eastern time zone shows and ending with the Pacific time zone shows.
But venues don't always post accurate info. Wait until TM sends out the time before making any plans.
Do you know the prices for tickets?
Only what I've seen the venues post. Merriweather Post lists them ranging from $40 to $150. Tampa lists their lowest priced tickets at $21, Vancouver listed $25 as their lowest. Again, venues don't always have the most accurate info, but this should give you some idea.
