Finally the news we were waiting for. And this seems to be real! I hope this is not really the only European show from the band (as announced in the festival's site). Anyway, the chosen place looks interesting: an island!

By the way, I was doing some research and this seems to be the cheapest way to do the trip:

1) From London, book a train to Portsmouth. The trajet would cost less £5.00 if you buy well in advance. It takes two hours to get there.

To buy tickets: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/

2) Then in Portsmouth take a ferry to Fishbourne (Isle of Wight)

Round trip ticket cost about £12.30 (assuming you're going by foot)

http://www.wightlink.co.uk/fares--tickets.aspx

So if you arrange well in advance everything, you shouldn't spend more than £25 (about € 29) to go from London to Isle of Wight (round trip).

Robert said is the only European Festival the band will play in 2011. This does not mean the band won't play shows on their own next year :smth023

Looks like there are no ferries going from France to Isle of Wight, you have to go to England mainland and take a ferry from Portsmouth.

Well, £ 160.00 (about € 190) is pretty expensive :?

if it's like this I would only go if this is the only show of The Cure in 2011. Hope Robert will give some more news in the upcoming weeks!

Yeah it's expensive and not easy to get there  :?  But anyway I don't want to take a risk, I would never forgive myself!

what risk? I don't think the festival will be sold out if people must pay € 190 per ticket, so we can wait... something tells me Bob is going to confirm other dates for next year 8)

The risk to miss the only 2011 show  .... well let's hope your feeling is right !
I would rather see them with an own show in some venue in Europe then a festival, but imagine this is the only one ...

I would say: Be patient and wait for more news. Bob has said "this will be the only European festival where we will play in 2011". He didn't rule out the possibility of other concerts ;)
