At each and every gig on their 2023 ‘Songs of a Lost World Tour,’ The Cure put on a career-spanning 2.5-hour concert.
That’s a Taylor Swift length show.
However, tickets don’t cost nearly as much to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers live this summer.
While prices to see Swift typically hover above $1000, we found tickets to see Robert Smith and co. going for as low as $8 before fees (!) on Vivid Seats this summer.
While that price tag is an outlier — tickets for most remaining shows on the run start in the $20 to $200 range — it does demonstrate that great deals to see the band live are out there.
You just have to keep an eye out.
Especially when the “Just Like Heaven” rockers drop into New York City’s Madison Square Garden from June 20-22.
Over the course of the three-night MSG stay, prices start at $97 before fees but as we get closer to the mini-residency, things could certainly change.
You just might get to hear “Friday, I’m In Love,” “Close To Me,” “Boys Don’t Cry,” “In Between Days,” “Pictures of You” and so many more live for less than a beer.
