FUCKING AWESOME!

Madison Square Garden?!?
Helloooo, Mr. Smith. This is 2007, not 1987.
This is a worse overbook than the Morrissey debacle.

Posted by danlynch | June 22, 2007 10:53 AM

any idea when tickets go on sale?

They were able to sell out Tweeter, why not MSG. I am so excited about this!

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 10:58 AM

Well the Cure is a band not a solo act like Morrissey. I'm sure they'll have better luck. If it had been The Smiths instead of Morrissey it would be a different scenario.

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 11:07 AM

They should be playing Radio City! I will be at MSG though!

Posted by Craig | June 22, 2007 11:11 AM

They will sell this out. Much better booking than Morrissey.

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 11:20 AM

Wherever The Cure or Morrissey play there will be fans and it will be a great time. Enough with giving them suggestions about where to play.

The cure were far away form selling out Tweeter last time. Here is the stats form Chainofflowers.com

August 1st, 2004 - Camden, N.J. (Tweeter Center at the Waterfront)
Second stage: Muse / Thursday / Auf Der Maur / The Cooper Temple Clause
Show starts at 5pm
(Capacity: 24,970 / Attendance: 10,780 / Gross: $391,016)

Posted by Craig | June 22, 2007 11:22 AM

u really think they will have a hard time selling out msg?

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 11:24 AM

no, people from all around the world come to NYC

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 11:33 AM

The show will sellout.

People never know when the Cure are gonna hang it up, and they're one of the last of that generation with the ability to pick-up a generational crossover base; whether or not they are dormant.

To note, I don't understand everyone's concerns overa random show selling out or not.

Unless you have points at stake as an investor, or you're the venue owner, concert promoter, or manager of the band, if you're an everyday fan, just enjoy the gig!

What's the point in arguing about this? Just be thankful they are playing in the area. man, why does everything have to be designed to please you?

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 11:35 AM

very excited for this. been seeing them since 1992 and it is great every time. Last time i saw them indoors was Roseland. this should be good.

EXACTLY!

Also, Tweeter's out of the way for a lot of NYC folks. Was there a saturation point reached that week for them, in terms of number of shows in the tri-state?

And, did they also play Philadelphia, NYC and / or Connecticut on that tour?

Just curious is all, and like we've both said, this shit doesn't matter.

But, being NYC is their only local area date, it should sellout.

I hate that term :)

Posted by manhattan carnivore | June 22, 2007 11:40 AM

Well, those Tweeter numbers pretty much support the idea that this MSG is a big reach.

Anyway, here's the issue. Its really pretty simple. If a band plays a large cavernous arena like MSG, the concert is more impersonal, sounds like crap, and lacks the energy of a smaller gig. That's not to mention the buzzkill of seeing 10,000 empty seats.

If the Cure, or any band really, books an appropriate venue (Radio City, Beacon, etc), its generally a better concert experience.

Posted by danlynch | June 22, 2007 11:42 AM

didn't it rain in 04' for curiosa tour, i know camden was a washout and we didnt go. i'm pretty sure tweeter was the day before and it rained all day as well. maybe that's why the numbers were so low

anyone remember the weather?

Does anyone remember laughter?

Posted by manhattan carnivore | June 22, 2007 11:53 AM

Didn't rain, it was sunny out form what I can recall. I remember getting there right after Cooper Temple Clause finished and go to see Melissa, Muse, Rapture, Interpol.

I agree that a smaller venue makes it a much better experience, but we should be grateful they are playing nearby. Maybe they will promote this double album like they did the last one, and hopefully won't saturate us with too many shows again

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 11:57 AM

Unless they play the Bowery or Studio B or the Annex or Maxwell's.....everyone will bitch about it. It's kind of what "we" do these days. Bitch, that is.

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 12:00 PM

I am very greatful they are touring period...but I would to hear their sounds in a great accoustic venue like radio city. I highly doubt MSG will sell out. Add that to the fact they are playing a massive venue in Philadelphia which means it is not the only large area arena show. I have a feeling low end tickets will be in the $40 range without service charge and expensive ones will be around $80 which is one of the reasons it won't sell out. When you have a venue like MSG you have to pay huge rents to rent the venue for the night thats why thus MSG has higher ticket prices and several acts fail to sell out.


PS. keep in mind the Cures last NYC (not counting Randalls Island Curiosa festival) shows were at Irving Plaza 96? and Roseland 2000?

Posted by Craig | June 22, 2007 12:04 PM

Tickets for the tour (not sure about NYC)begin going on sale June 28. I saw The Cure at MSG on The Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me tour in 1987. It was the loudest show I ever saw there. And very sold out. Two years later they played Giants Stadium on the Disintegration Tour. I thought they were over their heads but they were great so you never know.

Posted by jjazznola | June 22, 2007 1:12 PM

I hope tickets won't be priced comparable to the ten Bon Jovi shows announced across the river.

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 1:21 PM

I'm sick and tired of people saying it doesnt matter if it sells out or not and that we should stop dwelling on it. If we like the band we want the band to do well and have success. Thats it. Period.

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2007 3:16 PM

I hope they play "It's Friday, I'm in Love."

They have been, and are doing well.

As for if they do not sell out the gig -- you don't think they're touring without having already negotiated they're (or Robert's) take from the gate receipts, now do you?

That's the problem with a lot of fans -- they equate soldout show with being successful, while overlooking the financials that have already been agreed upon way before the first load-in.

Believe you me, Robert eats well.

Posted by manhattan carnivore | June 22, 2007 4:46 PM

And what about the future, you bull-headed dolt? Did you think about that? A show that doesnt sell out in NYC ruins the morale for any band, especially a band with a longer history. You cant just look at one pay day. You have to look further down the road. If they dont sell out they may just want to hang it up or break up thus ruining loyal fans chances of ever seeing them perform again. Shows that dont sell out effect a band's morale payday or not.

What are you, a Scientologist?

Because they all have something in common that you illustrate more & more with each post: they cannot accept alternative, much less factual, points of view.

And, if you think Robert's hitting the road for the love of it all, then think again.

All of your name-calling will not change the facts.

If the Cure should break up, it's not because they didn't sell out an arena.

As for "further down the road," they've only been at it since the mid & late 1970s.

It is now 2007.

How may more roads do you think they have, much less want, in them? Robert's already explored the bulk of creative avenues that had him bored as far back as 1982.

Lastly, do you really think Robert cares if you feel great for them if they do "well"? If he wins, you don't win: you just get charged a lot more money each time out.

That asshole's absolutely RIGHT.

D/N/T the power of cynicism.

Posted by Crosseyed Sniper | June 22, 2007 5:36 PM

The Cure played Roseland in 2000 as a promotional tour / publicity stunt. They did a series of very small venues around the US that winter before launching the Dream Tour that summer. Roseland, and all the shows on the mini-tour, sold out in around 30 seconds.

For the Curiosa Tour in '04 they played Camden as well as Randall's.

Top tickets are $70 - I just checked over at MSG. I wonder if there will be a presale?

I'm just excited that it's not a festival, which means we'll get a 3-hour cure show.

Name calling's the refuge of the simple-minded.

And, you're so clueless that, when Crosseyed Spider - the poster whom you've quoted - used the term "asshole" along with the street slang "D/N/T," you missed what he meant and what it means: Do Never Test.

In other words, I own you, bitch :)

Disintegration is still one of my favorite albums. I'll be there.

Posted by Christopher | June 23, 2007 7:20 PM

first of all, when the cure played at Tweeter Center in 2004, it was the "Curiosa Festival". It Was NOT "the cure" by themselves. Alot of people didn't see this tour because they never heard of the other bands or didn't care....they just wanted to see the cure's full show. Not a day of waiting around listening to crappy bands just to hear the cure for 90 minutes.

I should know because I was there. I didn't show up until an hour before the cure came onstage. I had like 6 extra pit tickets and I was trying to get rid of them so they didn't go to waste and I offered them to people buying lawn seats at the box office for the SAME PRICE and they weren't interested!!!! I've never seen a cure show so empty in my life!!! It was good for us though because we were in the FRONT of the PIT and Robert was standing right in front of me the whole time!!!

However, you must remember that they played at Randall's Island a couple of days before that, so 90% of the fans wanted to see them in NY...that's why the Camden show did so poorly. For some reason, festival shows don't seem do well in the states like they do in europe. it's probably because us americans are lazy....LOL

However, I do think it's very possible for the MSG show to sell out. I'm not sure about the other USA dates, but new york will definately be the show to see!!

Wow, THE CURE IS COMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by charlottesometimes | June 25, 2007 1:48 AM

Ehh, not really into them since Robert kicked Roger O'Donnell out of the band. Lost all the keyboard fun.

Posted by Anonymous | August 24, 2007 1:09 PM

they say they want to focus on their already-much-delayed album, before going on tour. they postponed all of the dates to Spring 2008:

"With all apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment it may cause, we have made a decision to move the September/October 2007 North American Cure shows to April/May 2008.

The schedule as it stands only gives us a couple of weeks to finish our new double album before we hit the road again, and we know this just isn’t enough time to complete the project to our total satisfaction...."
