QuoteThe Cure's frontman, Robert Smith, said on Thursday that Ticketmaster will provide $5 and $10 refunds to fans who purchased tickets for the band's North American tour after the band complained to the company about high fees.

QuoteThe Cure frontman Robert Smith took on Ticketmaster and he's getting results.
The lead singer of the new wave band said Ticketmaster will be giving partial refunds after some ticket buyers for his band's US tour were charged more in service fees than for the cost of their seats.
Smith took to Twitter to explain that the lowest-priced seats will get a refund of $10 per ticket. Other ticket buyers will get a $5 refund.
