When the Friday I'm In Love rockers came to the red carpet, an enthusiastic red carpet interviewer named Carrie Keagan said: "Congratulations The Cure Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees 2019, are you as excited as I am?"

However, interviewer Keegan clearly saw the funny side and responded: "He is everything my lil black heart hoped he’d be. Wait til you see his acceptance speech!! Congratulations on The Dirt, Tommy!"
