Tickets for all 30 dates will be available from March 15 through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program; Pre-registration is required and registration closes March 13 at 10:00 am PT. In the wake of the ticketing issues affecting presales for Taylor Swift and Bad Bunny, The Cure wrote in a message to fans: “We have priced tickets in favor of fans, and our efforts to block scalpers and inflated resale prices to limit, are supported by our ticketing partners.”

At press time, there was no information about any new music from the band, although Smith has promised a sequel to the 2008s 4:13 dream for some years.
