Get ready to smear red lippy all over your face like it's 1989, because Robert Smith and the boys are hitting town
Goth god and sexy oddity Robert Smith, The Cure's lead singer, is notoriously afraid of flying, which precludes the band from touring as much as we'd like them to. This will be one of their rare as hen's teeth Aussie shows and tickets will sell out before you can hiss 'Love Cats'.
If you didn't get your hands on a Splendour ticket (or you were really only going to go for The Cure anyway), then here's your chance. Tickets on sale for Telstra fans at 10am on Wednesday May 4, Live Nation members can get their hands on 'em at 12pm on Thursday May 5 and the rest of us plebs get a go at 10am on Friday May 6. Diarise it.
