Robert Smith and the Cure are coming to Atlanta for the first time in seven years, stopping at State Farm Arena on Tuesday, June 27 with a second date added June 28.

Atlanta will be at the tail end of a 30-date run that starts in New Orleans May 10 and ends in Miami July 1.

Ticket prices ranges from $30 to $150, relatively low for a group of the Cure’s stature.

The Cure, anticipating high demand, is using Ticketmaster’s “Verified Fan Sale” system to give people a better chance at getting good seats.

You have to register in advance at for a chance to buy tickets, an effort Ticketmaster uses to reduce the number of buyers looking to resell tickets for profit. A lottery-style process will use random selection to determine which registered Verified Fans will receive a unique access code or be put on the waitlist

But the Cure’s press announcement made it clear that there will be no VIP “Platinum” tickets or “dynamically priced” tickets set aside on the tour except for a few charity seats at the Hollywood Bowl shows in Los Angeles.

“Dynamically priced” tickets, in which certain seats will rise or fall in price based on demand, have courted controversy when acts such as Taylor Swift and Bruce Springsteen have used them because prices for the hottest seats would sometimes jump well into thousands, drawing ire from fans.

Verified Fan pre-sale begins Wednesday, March 15, at 10 a.m. and runs until Thursday, March 16, at 10 p.m. General on-sale begins Friday, March 17, at 10 a.m. for any remaining seats.

The seminal British new wave band with hits like “Just Like Heaven,” “Lovesong,” and “Boys Don’t Cry” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

The Cure last performed in Atlanta in 2016 at Lakewood Amphitheatre.

Pricing has not been released but The Cure posted a note promising it to be “affordable to all fans” with what the band perceives to be a “very fair” ranges of prices. Tickets won’t be transferrable and people who cannot make it to a concert can sell the ticket only on a face value ticket exchange.
