Thank you so much to , , , , and for the help tonight! And to all others who helped!


This dream always ends, this feeling always goes
The time always comes to slip away

This world always stops, this wonder always leaves
The time always comes to say goodbye

Final night of this wonderful, fantastic, amazing tour. One final (for now) celebration of the band we love. If you're lucky enough to be going tonight, please enjoy the hell out of it. Don't worry about what they play, don't worry or be bothered by the crowd around you, just forget every trouble & worry and get lost in the music, in the lights, in THAT feeling, and enjoy every single second of the show!

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." And you were lucky enough to experience it! What a year! What a tour! What a band!

"Hello? I'd like to speak to one of the programmers that's running this simulation that I'm living in, cause it's glitching, it's fucking unbelievable!" Most likely a reference to this.

Brit Row provides L-Acoustics K1/K2 for The Cure Tour 2016

From Audio Media International:

The Cure, whose enduring career is now entering its fourth decade, is currently out on the road with an L-Acoustics K1/K2 system supplied by London-based Britannia Row Productions, who have been with singer/guitarist Robert Smith and his bandmates since almost the very beginning.

Aside from a few short jaunts and various one-offs at major festivals, “The Cure Tour 2016”— which played 33 shows in North America this spring and is now journeying through 34 shows in 17 European countries — marks the first real outing for the band since the release of its 13th studio album, 4:13 Dream, and subsequent tour in 2008.

For this year’s worldwide tour, Britannia Row added a large quantity of new L-Acoustics products to its arsenal of gear, including K1, K1-SB, Kara, ARCS II, ARCS Wide, X8 and 5XT enclosures, plus the manufacturer’s new KS28 reference subwoofers and LA12X amplified controllers.
