I entered the ballot and now the waiting begins 😬
...feeling a little nervous

In 10 days they send emails to ballot winners. Based on the level of congestion there seemed to be heaps of people applying.

Hey RS if you should read this perhaps you could nudge my email into the list: word.on.a.wing.1980@gmail.com
😂👍

I’m going to take the morning off work on the day the emails are sent to lucky ballot winners ...sit by my computer and hope an email arrives in my inbox 😬😬😬

....and then I read Andy’s news and it puts it all into perspective! 
Whether I get tickets or not ...it’s all just a beautiful shadow on the wall.  The journey continues...

Back in 2011 The Cure announced two exclusive 'Reflections' shows at the same venue. A time later, they announced further shows in England (1) and the US (6). I hope the history will repeat, but this time with several other 'Disintegration' shows in European soil and elsewhere. Fingers crossed!

I got tickets!  😅🙏🏼
1 for each show.

It was an intense waiting, the ballot goes for 6 hours... sitting waiting for the email to arrive (*refresh! Refresh!!*).  I was so thankful when it appeared.
Best wishes to those still waiting for an email 😘

I’ve been thinking about the ballot system used to allocate tickets, and gotta say...

I preferred the method used in 2011 (Sydney Opera House, Reflections). If I recall right there were one or more presales, then a general sale. It meant if you were disappointed the first time you still had another shot (and the more committed you were the more chance of success you had).

The method this year felt harsh and random for fans.  Someone who haphazardly decides to enter had just as much chance as a diehard fan who intensely tried as hard as possible to get a ticket.

...my heart really goes out to those who sat all day refreshing their inbox and no email arrived. It’s freakin heartbreaking.

...This of course is no fault of any Cure folk, this ballot method was a (poor) decision of Sydney Opera House.
I hope they consider the comments of fans and do it differently next (?) time

I'm still quite perplexed that they even have a ballot system? I find it odd. I couldn't imagine waiting to see if I've been randomly selected?!

I feel for the ones who have indeed missed out. Fate in this repect is rather unfair.
