There is definitely an option to buy tickets. However, it seems some trains Malahide > Dublin are already sold out. Personally, I will arrange all this once I am already in Dublin.

Completely agree with you. Almost one year ago that lovely London show @Hyde park and now finally Dublin coming up. Still no schedule announcement? Just like you 3 summershows coming up for me :smth023

the thread of a dream

I've forgotten how to start a new topic on this website, as it has changed a little bit, but here it seems slightly appropiate:

I am going to see the imaginary boys at Malahide Castle, I was wondering if anyone met any roadies and got some weird story or any inside knowledge about how they run gigs (like now, since they have different roadies since the Les Enfants du Rock and Play Out documentaries) and stuff behind the scenes. (I'd love to be one of those extremely annoying concert goers and ask for a pick...) but I'd say the 'best' way of meeting The Cure is at the airport, which is where most fans on this site have met them at. Has anyone tried to be sneaky or met them before or after around somewhere backstage? (Don't worry, I won't do this, just curious) I love hearing stories from other Cureheads. All I know of is Gary Biddles, and he isn't even alive anymore! And (Paul?) Corkett, their current (sound engineer?) I've read about their crew from past tour programmes, but is it still more or less the same?

Probably easier at their hotel, at an European airport I find it very difficult because there are dozen of flights every time.

Suitcase almost packed and ready as tomorrow afternoon flight from Holland to Dublin. First time in this city. Cross fingers for some dry weather especially Saturday. I thought to see a kind of a schedule with 4.45 PM Just Mustard, 5.45 PM Twilight Sad and 6.45 PM Ride before The Cure go on stage from 8 till 11 PM :smth023

Fly to Dublin early morning. Fan meeting in the evening then getting ready for my first cure gig of 2019 :)

My trip started bad. Arrived to the hostel and there was a note "for reasons beyond our control the hostel will be closed from 31st May". Of course I never got a notification about it! I was lucky enough to find a nice room in Bray (20km south of Dublin) for tonight for 55 EUR (a single room in Dublin was about 200 EUR the night). Still deciding where to sleep tomorrow.

I am right now on my way to Bray, plan to take a shower, take a nap and head back to Dublin for the fan meeting.

@x-phile when you arrive to Dublin just buy a return train ticket to Malahide in the nearest train station, it should cost about €7. In the end, tonight I will be staying in Swords, a town close to Malahide and the airport.
