With Perry Farrell’s Lollapalooza ’04 getting cancelled, some speculation has arisen that the Cure’s summer tour package, Curiosa will be the next to go. Jim DeRogatis wrote yesterday in the Chicago Sun-Times that “industry insiders say the Curiosa Festival — which brings the Cure, Interpol, the Rapture and Mogwai to the Tweeter Center on Aug. 12 — may be in serious trouble as well.”
Several other sources around the internet have written that for many venues of Curiosa’s tour schedule, only 2000 of 10,000 tickets have been sold for shows just a few weeks away.
What’s wrong with kids this summer? Ideas in the usual place.
UPDATE: Curiosa NOT cancelled. Commence moping!
