Due to overwhelming demand The Cure “REFLECTIONS” show - first experienced in the spring of 2011 at the Vivid Festival in Sydney - will be performed seven more times in November 2011.
"REFLECTIONS" sees an evolving line up of band members past and present playing the first three Cure albums live in their entirety - from the punchy, offbeat, starkly unadorned songs of Three Imaginary Boys (1979), through the increasingly shadowy and quixotic pieces of Seventeen Seconds (1980), to the singular melancholic grandeur of Faith (1981) - in a truly extraordinary concert experience.
This final chance to experience the "REFLECTIONS" show will happen in Europe at the Royal Albert Hall, London on Tuesday November 15th, and in the USA at the Pantages Theatre, LA on Monday 21st, Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd, and at the Beacon Theatre, NYC on Friday 25th, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th.

fuck the cure. they made good music but now theyre just money hungry arena rock douchebags like all the others. i wouldnt pay 20 bucks to see robert smith flop around with a bunch of lameos playing songs idgaf about. hed probably ruin the old ones too.
If 45 Grave managed to become as successful as the Cure, they would probably be playing larger venues and charging 80-100 for their tickets as well. I've seen it happen too many small indie bands go on about staying real, only to dropping their pants to greed the minute the oppurtunity to do so came to their door. But to be fair, there is a lot more going on than just greed.
I'm just too lazy to get into it all..
The labels are actually the bigger evil in the big picture.
Peter is a talented artist but he's not nearly as relevant as the Cure, so he tends to play smaller venues. Smaller venues don't charge as much to put on shows like the much large venues, like the Rose Bowl. U2 for example charge a fortune for tickets but they tend to play at venues like the Rose Bowl, and a huge chunk of the ticket price goes to the venue, not the band. The same goes with U2 when they play at the larger venues.
If there ever comes a time when the Cure loses their relevance and starts playing at the House of Blues, their ticket prices will be much lower. The thing is, I don't see that happening because the Cure attracts goths, alt kids, indie kids, etc, and so on, while Peter primarily just attracts goths.
