  4. Saw this on frontpage:

    The Cure play live in Rome tonight!
    Pietro and Olivier will try to cover it from the show.
    Does anyone know what time The Cure go on?

    This is what it says on the post on

    Saturday October 11th at 6.30pm
    a huge free live concert
    In Piazza San Giovanni, Rome

    And since the cure are first band on the list, i assume they're playing first too. Sorry if this isn't any help >.<

  5. God I love these guys... I so wish I could be there! Have a great time, lucky Europeans! :^D

  6. onnihopedream: The Cure are headlining so will be on last.

  7. oh true... well 4 acts before hand, guessing they each get about 30-60 mins or something, so somwhere around 9 or 10 would be my guess.

  8. Damn, this is the band in top form, and on a sound check. I so want to hear this show, I hope someone is taping it or something.

  9. Does anybody know if MTV is broadcasting in Germany? And when? Maybe there's a livestream at web as well?

    Wishing every rome traveler a very very nice night with the cure!

  10. I've been googling my fingers off to find the delayed global cast times for the rest of us, but so far no luck. :(

  11. yes, it's a shame :( fuck mtv

  12. the part about the italian rapper getting booed offstage made me laugh.

  13. today is the BIGDAY!! brrrr im so excited!! i cant wait!! i wish i could be there!

  14. things are kinda slow around here..


    Following the problems in the sub-prime lending market in America, uncertainty has now hit Japan.

    In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank has announced plans to cut some of its branches.

    Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

    Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.

  16. LOL at Swifty!! haha you are a real funny person:)

  17. Is it wrong that I find that hilarious? :)

  18. Swifty has a never ending supply of jokes XD


  19. so, we already know what the setlist is, or at least the main set, but what about the encores? b sides or hits??? thats the real question. im guessing hits

  20. Yeah robert said it would prolly be the hits, but here's hoping for a b-side ;)


  21. Swifty, I can count on you to make me smile for sure. That was great. :)

  22. does anyone know about the "Shellfish's Advice" bootleg from 1993?? i think it was recorded live but according to me the only concert played in 1993 is the Great Expectations one for XFM, so im kinda confused.. can anyone clear that up please?

  23. you rock, swifty! keep 'em coming. the laughs dull the pain that we're not in rome.


    I SOOO Want to be there, KELBEL NEEDS HER FIX!

    Keep the VIDS coming - THANKS!!!

  25. Hi CURE friends, i`m in a hurry.

    Just passing by quickly to say hi and that my spirit will be there in Rome and here with all you, because i can`t follow live the show because i`m in collegue mid-term.

    The best part is one part of my exam consists on talking about an historical character that you admires and i`m talking about The CURE,RSx and company.

    Enjoy the show to the most!!!!!!!

    Later i`ll check out all the show`s highlights and i want to hear the new songs NOW.

    See you around here then CURE friends...


  26. I am sad that I will have to miss most of the Cure live updates for the Rome show (gotta go coach my daughter's European Football game). For the 4-tour, part of the fun was making bets on what the opener would be: I'm thinking UTS for this one. Any takers ;)

  27. no news yet on when are they playing?

  28. I've decided I need to CURE my fix....I'm curling up on the couch with a blanket and watching Trilogy.

    Ahhh, I love Saturdays.

    I'll check into COF for updates.

  29. well i think its a bit obvious that UTS is the opener, since they are premiering the entire album and the album opener is UTS, maybe taking bets on the encore makes it more fun:) im guessing they'll start with boys don't cry

  30. There was a midget down in Texas who complained to his buddy that his testicles ached all the time. His friend suggested he visit a doctor to see what could be done to relieve the problem. The midget took his advice and went to see the doctor and told him what the problem was. The doctor told him to drop his pants and he would take a look. The doctor put him on the examining table and started to examine him. The doc put one finger under his left testicle and told the midget to turn his head to the left and cough-the usual method to check for a hernia."Aha!" The doc then put his finger under the right testicle and asked the midget to cough again. "Aha!" said the doctor and reached for his surgical scissors. Snip snip snip snip on the right side then snip snip snip snip snip on the left side. The midget was too afraid to look but noted with amazement that the snipping did not hurt The doctor then told the midget to get dressed and see if they still ached. The midget was absolutely delighted as he walked around the doc's office and discovered his testicles were no longer aching. "Gee, what did you do Doc?" he asked. The doc replied,"I cut two inches off the tops of your cowboy boots."

  31. haha LOL really funny that one:) keep em coming so the waiting doesnt seem so loong

  32. Oh god, that one was gross, but I lol'd anyway. Seriously, where do you get these jokes? XD

    Well imma go watch In Orange now. it's been a while (whole thing is in a single segment video on google videos!)

  33. hier j'ai eu the show on dvd le prochain in rome!!

  34. A woman went up to the bar in a quiet rural pub. She gestured alluringly to the bartender who approached her immediately.

    She seductively signalled that he should bring his face closer to hers. As he did, she gently caressed his full beard.

    "Are you the manager?" she asked, softly stroking his face with both hands. "Actually, no" he replied.

    "Can you get him for me?I need to speak to him" she said, running her hands into his hair.

    "I'm afraid I can't" breathed the bartender..."Is there anything I can do?"

    "Yes.I need you to give him a message" she continued"

    Running her forefinger across the bartenders lips and slyly popping a couple of her fingers into his mouth and allowing him to suck them gently.

    "What should I tell him?" the barman managed to say.

    "Tell him. There's no toilet paper,hand soap or paper towels in the ladies room."

  35. What? I missed a Swifty joke! We need your jokes in the rome show topic ASAP mister!!! ;p

  36. Pretty good swifty!

    Here's one from my older brother.

    The Queen of England visits America, Land of Private Health Care.

    The Queen decides to visit a hospital with the Chief doctor (or whatever) giving her a tour.

    She looks into one room and sees a man masturbating furiously. She gasps in shock, but the doctor explains to her:

    "You see, he has a medical condition which causes his testicles to fill up and he has to masturbate to relieve them or they'll explode and he'll die."

    She answers a bit stunned, "Oh, alright."

    They keep walking, when the Queen turns to look inside another room and sees a young, attractive nurse performing oral sex on a patient. The Queen looks to the doctor for an explanation, and he responds,

    "Same problem, better health plan."
