Charlotte show included in TM free vouchers

If you received any of the free vouchers or discount codes from the TM lawsuit settlement, The Cure's show in Charlotte, NC on June 23rd is included in the list of eligible shows.

From Mass Live:

Ticketmaster is offering 50 million of its customers vouchers for free tickets and discounts thanks to a hefty class-action lawsuit settlement.

And if you've bought a ticket through the service between late 1999 and early 2013, you should have at least one voucher sitting in your Ticketmaster account.

Ticketmaster released Tuesday an initial list of 450 shows across the U.S. eligible for the vouchers, including The Cure, Bob Dylan, Mumford and Sons, Snoop Dogg with Wiz Khalifa, Weezer, and Modest Mouse with Brand New.

Dates for the concerts range from this week to September.

The vouchers are a result of a class-action lawsuit over "deceptive" and "jacked up" service fees, according to Billboard magazine. 

Customers are poised to receive one voucher for each ticket bought through Ticketmaster during the class period -- from Oct. 21, 1999 through Feb. 27, 2013 -- with a cap of 17. The vouchers expire in 2020.

Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Consequence of Sound has already reported technical issues with the voucher system, with some customers saying their voucher codes weren't accepted at checkout.

(Thanks @PlumeraiBand)

A Cure fan in the Nova Scotia government

Fun story from CBC. Further proof that we are EVERYWHERE. :)

Nova Scotia government Periscopes Cure concert by accident
Mistake occurred when employee attending concert used government social media account rather than own
By Richard Woodbury, CBC News Posted: Jun 20, 2016 1:24 PM

A live stream of a New York concert by English rock band The Cure was accidentally broadcast for less than two minutes from the Nova Scotia government's Twitter account early Sunday.

Government spokeswoman Tina Thibeau says the error happened when a government employee attending the Saturday concert used the government's Twitter account, rather than their own.

To broadcast the concert, the person used Periscope, a Twitter app that allows people to live stream audio and video over the internet.

The tweet went out at about 12:20 a.m. AT Sunday.

Thibeau says the post was deleted as soon as it became known, and was up for under two minutes.

The Cure are in the midst of a three-night run at Madison Square Garden and are known for hit songs like Friday I'm in LoveClose to Me and Lovesong.
