The Cure frontman Robert Smith leveled an attack on the superstars who charge fans exorbitant fees to see them, claiming in an interview with The Glasgow Daily Record that they are destroying live music. “Curiosa was the best live touring experience of my life so far,” Smith said of the group’s recently completed festival tour. “It exceeded all my expectations. It was particularly satisfying that we managed to do Curiosa without sponsorship and keep ticket prices low and still make a little money. The Sting and Annie Lennox package, for example, was more than $100 a ticket. Prices like that are crippling promoters and artists further down the ladder, because when fans spend that much on one ticket, they can’t afford to go to see so many other shows.”
