The Cure frontman Robert Smith raged against the machine this week and in a historic win for fans got Ticketmaster to issue partial refunds for “unduly high” fees. This marks the latest development in the goth rock originator’s ongoing spat with the ticketing giant as The Cure prepares for its first North American tour since 2016.

Smith announced the partial refunds on Thursday, the day after pre-sales began for The Cure’s upcoming tour. The band pledged to keep tickets as affordable as possible, with some as low as $20, but when fans logged onto Ticketmaster to purchase tickets they were met with fees that outweighed the cost of their tickets. One tweet that went viral showed $21.65 in fees on a $20 ticket.

As a result, Ticketmaster will issue a $10 refund to those who purchased the lowest-priced tickets to any Cure show. Everyone else will receive $5.

“After further conversation, Ticketmaster have agreed with us that many of the fees being charged were unduly high, and as a gesture of goodwill have offered a $10 per ticket refund to all verified fan accounts for lowest ticket price (‘ltp’) transactions,” Smith wrote on Twitter. “And a $5 ticket refund to all verified fan accounts for all other ticket price transactions, for all Cure shows at all venues.”

In order to keep ticket prices low, The Cure has implemented a number of unique and welcome changes. First off, the band opted out of Ticketmaster’s “dynamic pricing” strategy, where ticket prices fluctuate based on demand. The Cure also declined to offer “platinum tickets”, which are some of the best seats in the venue offered at drastic markups. Lastly, The Cure mandated that tickets would not be transferable—in states where laws allow—to cut down on the secondary market.

“Unfortunately, despite our desire to protect our low ticket prices for fans, the states of NY, IL and CO make this very difficult,” the band wrote in a statement earlier this week. “They actually have laws in place that protect scalpers! For shows in these states we urge fans to buy or sell tickets to one another on face value exchanges like and Fans should avoid buying tickets that are being resold at inflated prices by scalpers, and the sites that host these scalpers should refrain from reselling tickets for our shows.”

This imbroglio comes as the fight against predatory fees in the ticketing industry enters a new phase. Following the bipartisan grandstanding at the Ticketmaster hearings earlier this year in the fallout of the Taylor Swift The Eras Tour on-sale, states around the country are weighing various new legislation to make the market safer for consumers.

As Ticketmaster parent Live Nation Entertainment pushes for mandated “all-in” pricing and restrictions on the transferability of tickets, the secondary market has put forth a concerted lobbying effort to argue that such limitations would actually hurt fans. The saga is currently playing out in statehouses in Colorado and Georgia, where lawmakers are considering such bills and hearing testimony from venue owners and consumer organizations—though some of the latter’s allegiances have been brought into question.
