I bought my ticket at Amazon - now I'm paranoid it won't be at the box office when I go to pick it up! Wish I had acted sooner and bought on AXS so I could have an e-ticket.

Me too I have a primary entrance ticket and I was wandering already at what time i should be there to wait in line? This is my first Cure show :P  :D and this could not have come on a better time for me. Thank you! I love The Cure! It will be perfect nevertheless!

What amount of hours did you fans who have attended previous Cure shows waited in line to be front row?
I am really curious!

I'm not sure if you'll be in front with primary pass. I think you might have to have premium for that. When I saw them on tour last year, I waited up to 13 hours to be able to stand at the stage. It was cold (especially in Wembley) but worth it. That's great you get to see them for the first time! You're going to LOVE the show. I'm pretty excited about the line-up at the anniversary show. It's going to be an incredible day!

Premium (yellow sector in the venue layout) is not needed. Queuing about 6 hours before the doors open should allow anyone (with Primary Entry ticket) to be in the front row.

By the way, as most fans will be in London from the day before, we will be, hopefully, organizing a Curefans dinner on 6th July. Watch this topic for further updates ;)

curefans.com's japanesebaby saw The Cure in front row in all the European shows she went to in 2016. I think she was queuing for 4 to 6 hours before doors opened.

:o

...and with a 'normal' ticket? I don't need to be in the first row but I won't be too far from stage.
I know you have the answer, David!  ;)

Based on previous Cure experiences, 2 hours before doors open should be enough to have a decent place.

With so many bands playing, "doors open" will probably be quite early in the day?
(Don't forget, you might have to stand there front stage for all of the bands before The Cure take the stage in the evening! Might become exhausting, especially if the weather will be sunny.)

Yes, I suppose around noon.

I read somewhere that door opens at 12:30 for primary entry and 13:30 for standard GA

3rd night in Wembley we started queuing at 6:30 am and we were the first ones. Hyde Park show will be crowded, there are fans of other bands also, but it is too early to start thinking of that :)

When The Cure played in Lima there was some people camping from the day before, so maybe 06:30 am is not so bad after all ;) Maybe for this special anniversary it will be the same? We will see. Here's an interview I did with some of the fans back then:
