Quote"Promoters will put forward a ticket price they think is achievable and a lot of the time Robert will come back and say thank you very much, but I think the prices should be lower," he says. "He's also very keen to see ticket scales that are neatly structured rather than appearing to be haphazard from the fans' point of view."Production manager Broad notes the positives, "Robert is like management. He wants to know the sales numbers, how everything looks, where everything is – he is very hands on. It actually has its advantages: if anyone asks 'Why do you do X?' we can answer, 'Because Robert wants to!' And that's the end of the conversation."
QuoteHighlighting the band's enduring – and growing – appeal, Mercader says, "I found out during the pandemic that many people in my life are massive fans of The Cure: my lawyer, some of the people who work on my estate. And they are not all 'goth' people. Cure fans are everywhere."I always sell out with The Cure. They last visited Spain in 2019 when they played Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, where their performance was televised on national TV, and they attracted the biggest audience of the whole festival."Noting that he's looking forward to seeing the tour finale at Wembley, Bryan Grant states, "The Cure have quietly become one of the best performing bands on the planet. They don't make a lot of media noise, but the production is very creative and quirky but not over-elaborate –they don't have to rely on style over substance."Hopewell admits that the fact the band is on the road at all in 2022 is something of a miracle. "We have half a million fans going to see The Cure – about 11,000 people on average per night – which considering it's just after a pandemic, people have less money than before, and have less confidence that shows are actually going to happen... it's really humbling," he says.
