What exactly "Entry for Primary Entry and General Admission customers into this area is on a first-come-first served basis and it is not guaranteed" means?

Does this means holders of General Admission tickets (£ 62) can enter the capacity controlled area if they arrive before the holders of Primary Entry tickets (£ 72)? If that's the case, what's the advantage of paying £ 10 more for the ticket? :roll:

I hope so, David. 'Primary entry' is a bit confusing. I mean the park has more than one
entrance, hasn't he? I was interested in the yellow area, but I couldn't select it, so I ordered
a GA-ticket.  :?

Nice as it "would be", I get the feeling that expectations will be high for some, which will possibly only lead to disappointments.  :(
So far, we can only "guess" that the band line-up will be the current one (RS, Simon, Roger, Jason, Reeves).

It's 40 years of The Cure. Playing a two-hour set would be great, but not special, and Bob IS special. So I am expecting something special ;)

That's the biggest downer (for me), "only" 120 minutes seems relatively "short" for a Cure show! (Of course, they have lots of other interesting bands playing, but...)

Maybe Robert has something "special" lined up for this, let's hope so, but I myself also hope that expectations won't become mountain-high, because then there'll be lots of moaning and whining...  :roll:

The Kiss would fit perfectly. I looked at 1988 but they didn't play any concerts in that year.
Then I looked at 1987 and 1989. Plainsong is maybe too dark for a summer scene, unless it
would rain. I don't know...

Plainsong is maybe too dark for a summer scene, unless it would rain.

It was a nice summery day when The Cure played Hyde Park in 2002, nevertheless they did start with "Plainsong" as far as I recall...

I'd love to see something along those lines too.  I'm pretty sure the line-up will be the one that toured last year.  Lol would probably do something like what he did during the 'Reflections' gigs, adding color to as many songs as would be appropriate.  I can't see Robert asking Jason to step aside for ANY length of time, not even a song or two.  Still, the only way I'm going to feel that I missed out on something special will be if Pearl does a couple of encores.  A two-hour festival set in the park?  No.  I should add, not for me.  For those of you who are excited about it and wouldn't miss it for the world, I hope it is everything that YOU hope it is.

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!

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.)

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:

I have to watch my blood pressure and pulse. After the fantastic show in London (Dec 2014)

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!

Yes I am excited about the line-up as well! Only The Twilight Sad I need to get into, never digged into that band for some reason but I will very soon..for now I am in a (quite long) period that I can't listen to anything but The Cure so checking other bands is on hold.
..and yeah that's what I read a lot about hours and hours waiting for The Cure and that it's all worth it! I'll prepare myself!

That's a great idea!!

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.)

Yeah I've thought about that..but it'll be worth it  :P

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 :)

Yes it is early but I think about it every day  ;)

Looks good. They will need to give us a discount cause we will be a big group this time. Looking forward to this (too bad they only make one show though!)

Looks good indeed! Did you do this kind of meet up before other shows as well? (Sorry for the chaotic responses but I am still figuring out how this site works.. :?)

I have to watch my blood pressure and pulse. After the fantastic show in London (Dec 2014)
I suppose that my window of time is 6-7 hours with beta blocker. Everything beyond this is dangerous for me, so I believe it would be better to enter the park not before 4 pm.

Of course, take care!
In 2002 I had a great time at Hyde Park, at first sitting under a tree in the back, eating free ice cream (there was a company "trying out" their new product, giving it away for free, I could hardly believe it!) and listening to some of the support acts, then wandering about a bit (I do remember Mogwai were loud even at the back!), later being a bit more close to the stage, for The Cure I stood near the mixing desk (nearly always the spot with the best sound...)!  :)

I'm afraid my cynicism is welling up inside me again...  One show in Hyde Park, loads of other bands, a two-hour festival set intended, ostensibly, to do justice to 40 years of music, in front of 500,000 fans (give or take), hit-and-run and a massive payday at the end for doing about half a gig.  Whatever interest I may have had is gone.  Nice work if you can get it...

Well, I said right from the start that 120 minutes seems relatively "short" for The Cure!
The good thing is: the other bands are good or interesting (at least).  :)
(However, if you're on your feet for all of them, you'll be happy the Cure will "only" play 2 hours...)

a massive payday at the end for doing about half a gig.

How much is their payday?  :?
When I saw them in 2016, they played for two and a half hours. That was part of a tour with lots of concerts, so I would guess the pay was "massive". Thus I would guess Hyde Park's not about the money... (they could do a festival tour playing "greatest hits" for 1,5 hours if they wanted that).

Only European show, but you can bet there will be US shows also. They play more in the US than they do in Europe anyway.

And seeing Slowdive & The Cure in the same night is priceless... for all the rest there's Mastercard :P

No idea about the size of the payday, but it's in the millions, has to be.  I don't begrudge them a dime, they deserve every penny and well done them!

I hear the 'Only European Show' line and have to wonder.  There wouldn't be another U.S. tour in the offing.  They'll never play Washington State again after last year's Sasquatch nightmare, and they gave up on Seattle more than 20 years ago.  I think Toronto gets a 40th Anniversary show too.  I'm calling it right here and now.  Toronto will be the next gig they announce.

For one show? I don't think so.
I can imagine the payday for a big tour like 2016 will go into millions... (but they have to pay road crew and drivers and so on).
Here's attendance and gross sales for 2016, draw your own conclusions:

I think there were 3 days of concerts too when I saw The Cure there back in July 2002!
Hyde Park is huge, so there is only a part of it which is used for the concerts. The rest of the park is still accessible for people to do what they do in a park (taking a walk, row a boat on the lake...).

For more info, look here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_concerts_in_Hyde_Park
Quote
Hyde Park in London, England, has been an important venue for rock music concerts since the late 1960s. The music management company Blackhill Enterprises held the first rock concert there on 29 June 1968, attended by 15,000 people. On the bill were Pink Floyd, Roy Harper and Jethro Tull. The supergroup Blind Faith (featuring Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood) played their debut gig in Hyde Park on 7 June 1969. The Rolling Stones headlined a concert (later released as The Stones in the Park) on 5 July that year, two days after the death of founding member Brian Jones, and is now remembered as one of the most famous gigs of the 1960s.

The park has also played host to many music festivals, including Party in the Park between 1998 and 2004, The Wireless Festival between 2005 and 2012, Hard Rock Calling between 2006 and 2012, Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park since 2011 and Barclaycard presents British Summer Time since 2013.

Of course, after the events, the grass won't look nice and there's been complaints in the past.

Hi all, for the meeting point let's throw some ideas and we will decide what's best for all. I think most Cure fans will be in London from the day before, so I think we definitely need to gather the 6th of July evening somewhere.

As for the festival itself, doors open 13:30 and I guess most people will go there from very early, so if we do a gathering on 07/07 it will have to in some meeting point in the festival area itself.

I was getting a little worried as well because it seems odd that the tickets aren't sent as soon as they are payed for and so I mailed AXS too. They replied:

The e-tickets for this event have not yet been released. Tickets may be received at any point up until the week of the event, but are usually sent out around 2 weeks before.

If you have not had your tickets within 3 days of the event, please call 0203 481 5506.

I guess no need to worry

@helloimageifonly

Thank you. The Customer service has responded to me as well - quicker than expected.
I suppose my ticket (via surface mail) will pop up around June. That's OK, but I haven't
booked flight and hotel yet - something that I have to do in May at the latest I think. The
ticket is actually not the problem but my life situation is consternating.  :(

There are still 3 months left for the concert. You should not expect the tickets before June.

I booked everything the same day I've bought the ticket just to make sure that I don't have to go too far to sleep early sunday morning after the show. And to cut the cost a bit.

The
ticket is actually not the problem but my life situation is consternating.  :(

Sorry to hear that. Take care

I thought there would be one single main stage, but it seems there will be more?
