The Cure Against Ticketmaster - Fans Receive Refunds After Legendary Band Backs Them

The Cure have delivered at least some sort of remedy for disappointed music fans.

The Cure Front man Robert Smith took to Twitter to let fans know that they would be receiving $10 back from Ticketmaster after the band publicly complained that the ticket platform was charging too much in fees.

Though $10 may not seem like a lot from a multi-billion dollar company, it still is a victory for ticked off fans that are growing increasingly frustrated with Ticketmaster.

Both Smith and The Cure have been public about their outrage with Ticketmaster and their exhubertent fees that are added onto ticket prices that the band says they purposely kept low.

In some instances, ticket prices nearly DOUBLED in price because of Ticketmaster's ridiculous fees.

Of course, Ticketmaster's "good will" of offering the small refund to customers is the least they could do - but the fact of the matter is, they still didn't HAVE to do it. However, it's a smart move considering the public backlash that they've been facing in the last couple of months.

It all started last year when Taylor Swift single-handedly may have caused an eventual Ticketmaster / Live Nation monopoly break-up after millions of fans went berserk after her Eras Tour presale became an absolute crap show.

Since then, Congress has held hearings, the company has faced class-action lawsuits and their reputation has taken a tremendous hit.

The Cure head to North America for a full arena tour beginning May 10th in New Orleans.
