20 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure

They are spending a lot of time in the States lately...Geeee you guys are so lucky.....you guys!

so... maybe the same summer tour as in 2004?? Hope they´ll come to Europe again!!!
OMG - Andy, I am so excited for you!!!
omg yyayayayayayayay!!!!!!! :D they cant just come for one show can they?? :P
Craig.....SOOOO glad I already booked hotel when I was told this
Right before Bob's bday. Very cool
"Right before Bob's bday. Very cool"That makes me think about that dark album that contractually can only be released 6 months and a day after 4:13 dream. Just thinking...
My birthday!! That's so sweet of them. :)
I really desperately hope for more dates this summer (preferably some in eastern US or Canada or even in the UK) cause I'd really love to start planning a trip and Coachella is 99% out for me :(
Hmm... The Cure with Yeah Yeah Yeahs... Sweet.
Do the single-day passes for Coachella usually sell out quickly? Anyone know?
ok - so is this going to be around the same time that the curse is playing RSx's bday show? like - same weekend?
okay fuckthat line-up, with PUBLIC FUCKNG ENEMY PLAYING ON THE SAME NIGHT AS THE CURE!!!!!!, is dreamy. Cohen!!! Beirut, Calexico, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, CONOR OBERST, Black Keys, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs...I don't have the money and I hate the desert. Nor do I have the time off. dammit
chris-boo, you GOIN'????!!!!
i am going to cry. i knew it. they ARE playing. shit. motherfucking shit.that lineup is once in a fucking lifetime. to see them all in one night, ARGH.they always fucking come to southern cali, those fuckers.
im in the same boat as you kittyboo. outta mulahate the desertbut if the curse is playing that same weekend...hmmmmi dunno. im on the fence.r u a definite NO cat?
deejy!!!!i know sweetie - i feel the same way!! i just stressed out when i got the text from tina and sara this morning.
KATE!!! :)*jumps up and down and waves!!*
Chris!!!!!*HUG*How are ya?
oh the poor curse. they certainly live up to their name. perhaps they shouldn't schedule shows around important dates :/kate - i havent seen you in FOREVER.they are always so close and so far away.
Haaaa! I Love it! What a great surpirise!
chris-boo, i am NEVER a definite no. i have no moolah! and NO time off!i HATED coachella 04 because of the heat, the drunk kids, etc. etc. etc. - but the CURE made up for itand freakin' PUBLIC ENEMY!!!!!!!! is going to play on the same nite! and then COHEN and OBERST and BLOODY VALENTINEnever say never, but i'm supposed to go to portugal this summer, sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
...And I'm not going. Same reason I never went to Coachella when I lived in San Diego... I can't deal with the heat, *especially at festivals. And lets just hope they don't party too hard for three days and then try to put on a show. Robert: Do the right thing! LOL <3
Cat: *Running Hug*
Hey there, dj! How are you doing?(logging on to meebo)
Kate - Im good. we just came back from winter break and now i cant wait for spring break! :D how are things with you and yo hubby? he should be proud to know that the picture that he took of me and porl at RCMH is proudly displyed here at school! kids are all - who the hell is that??? LOL! so i educate them as i should! (why, child, that is the best guitarist ON THE PLANET!!) :D i already have more budding cure fans!!! CAT!!!!!!! why must the cure play such a horrid venue??? (Visions from Austin Music Hall abound) arent they opposed to heat as well? im sure RSx hates it! but maybe april wont be that hot???
Chris - I am so glad to hear that you are doing well. That is very funny about the photograph in the classroom. We are doing great - DC is finally calming down after last week's festivities, and this week's snow and ice!
Hi Kate and Christina! It will be grossly hot, even in April. But if you've never been and can go, you should do it. Just book your hotel now! And bring a sedative to deal with the drunk crowds ;) And I Love that you have a picture of you and Porl in your class!
What the hell....are they going on sale at 9am today?!!!AARRGGHH!!!!!!!!! I AM SOOOO GOING!!!!!!!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS....IT'S A CURE WONDERLAND THAT WE LIVE IN!!!!!!!!!
warm up show????
Anah, soul sistah, i miss you terribly!chris freakin' BOO, i have no CLUE why they freakin' play freakin' HOT venues! and RSX was quoted as saying he hated the heat at Coachella, so WTFABLES!!!!!!!!!but PUBLIC ENEMY AND BLOODY VALENTINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!freakin' DAMMITchris, i LOVE that you have a pic of you and Porl in your classroom. LURVE THAT - you are CURE AMBASSADOR for the YOUTH!and sorry to say, but april in the cali desert is VERY FUCKING HOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTnever say never. :-P
Yes! Yes! Yes!I love it!I can't wait!I am sooo excited!Cureheart: You were like right on! Two thumbs up!
Cat: Even though he hates it, maybe it will be the jump off point for a new tour?
2004 was my first year going to Coachella, mostly because of The Cure and Radiohead. I've since gone back 3 of the last 4 years. Amazing festival. I sadly can't make it this year.Single day tickets will sell out, probably TODAY. They are always limited quantities, unless something drastically changes this year. The festival is usually promoted more as a multi-day event and so they prefer to sell 3-day passes. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
(((((ANAH!!))))(((((KEL!!))))oh lord...so what do we do cat? like joe s said - do you think this is a warm up show? they cant possibly be starting the wishful thinking tour already can they? surely not just one show...right? we need more info people!!ok...i need to run...we are having an elective fair today in the gym so i gotta run and advertise for my class! hopefully ill have more of the elective class next year and less of the core class! yay electives!and i also have pics of RSx from the austin show in my room too! the ones of him smiling at me! :D
I have another thought...If I recall correctly, it was stated that any album to be released after 4:13 Dream would have to wait at least six months.Didn't we calculate that six months would make it this April? Could this be part of a promo tour!?Am I crazy?
I AM GOING THIS IS GOING TO BE INSANE.On a more dreamy note, could this mean there's going to be a Cure/MBV co-headline tour? Think about it people.
Wishful Thinking Tour 2009. It's going to happen.
i highly doubt that the tix will SELL OUT, per se, but if so then i ain't goin' cuz i can't buy one right nowdammitbut i am still not ruling it out - that line up is too freakin' SUWEETand i am sure we can get tix somehowi might be getting bday money in march, and if not then i'll pimp out my boyfriend :-P
g and i are going!
There is a layaway plan for Coachella tickets. It's the 10th anniversary so it was supposed to be a big deal (and it is!)
Got my ticket.....sunday is a good line up! x, MBV, isnt PB&J playing sunday too?see you there cof freaks :)
I got my Ticket! Woo Hoo!This is sooooo great! Now I don't have to be too hurt about missing the Big Gig! So whose staying where? Anyone camping out?Yay!!!
Who has yahoo messenger or the equivalent?
I booked my hotel in December. I had heard they were playing and immediately booked. I also heard Depeche was playing; not sure what happened there. Yeah!!!!
Me and the mister will be there! :D He's stoked to get another Cure concert so soon, since he is missing the Big Gig. YAY for the CURE!!! And let the wild speculation flow about the Dark Album, baby! Sounds like Robert wanted to spend his 50th birthday in LA, I wonder why?!!! I'm not too worried about tix, Cat, since it's an all-GA show. I'm sure there will be some available in March and April. I can't wait to see my CoF peeps that can't come to London again so soon!! CRAIG!! Are you going to come out for this???
Yay Rev!I bit the bullet and did it. See you peeps there!
Haha. The Cure take top billing on Sunday while Morrissey only takes second on Friday.In my nutty little world that means The Cure are better than Morrissey once and for all.

miss regina-boo!!!now i HAVE to go!!!i simply cant miss out on meeting you AGAIN!!!*checks savings account and credit limits*
OMG Chris go! Regina did you get tix for the whole weekend???Or just Sunday??I want to see Friday and Sunday especially, but I can't take two sick daysSo fuck it. I'm going. I'm getting tix. Somehow I will afford it. Boyfriend will pimp for me or I will get March birthday moolah. Or I will sell crack. Yuppers. REGINA WHAT DAYS ARE YoU GOING?CHRIS BOOO GO!!!
We're going to Sunday for sure, got reservations at the hotel already!! YAY Curepeeps!
I wonder where RS will be staying at...
REV WTF! that was FAST!!!you're doing sunday only??saturday doesn't sound as appealing to mei might hate myself for thisi hate the desert but i love public enemy!!!!! oh yeah, and the cure. plus i was alone last time. not that i care but it's more fun with PEEPSOMFGAWD
Cat, if you want a hotel room you need to book NOW. All the cheap rooms are already full! I went with full rack rate at the Homewood Suites, mainly because I didn't have to pay in advance or put a deposit in, you can just reserve with a CC#. It's way cheaper to book thru hotels.com or prepay, but I don't have the extra $$ due to going to London!
Cureheart, I should have booked my hotel when you did...AWWWWW what was I thinking???Yeesh, now to figure out if I should camp there, should take a trailer to some designated rv site close by or get a hotel!
If you are planning to go to only one day of the festival, buy your tickets NOW. While the capacity for the festival is about 60,000 per day, about 50,000 of those admissions are allocated to 3-day passes. So if you don't want to buy a three day pass, buy your ticket asap. See you all there!
rev, you're making me nervousi don't have time to do this right nowPUBLIC ENEMY AND MY BLOODY VALENTINE
come one chris and cat!!! Im buying two tickets bc I know someone is going to want to go and I dont know how fast they sell out!! AND if this is the place i think it is there is an indian reserve with casinos that let 18 year olds gamble!!! :D
word of mouth is that saturday and sunday will def sell out this year....just what i saw on some forums
i have a headache now.:/
other people are saying they WONT sell out...i guess well see but im buying 2 tix now just in case so for anyone decides to go *cough chris and cat cough* *cough AND DEEJ* (just get cavities deej! LOL )
IF SARA IS GOING I AM INCHRIS, FUCKING GOWE WILL SLEEP CHEAP HELL WE juST WONT SLEEP AT ALL LIKE IN LAI am getting my sunday tic NOW
DJ, you are GOINGPERIODIMMA KIDNAP YO ASSI didn't say that(honest i won't)

It's quite Casino City around there.
got my sunday tici hope i can find a decent fliteCHRIS BOO JUST GOrev can i sleep on yer floor?just kiddingi can find a dump somewhere... a motel dump not a dumpsterDOH
please follow this up with some other shows in the area. I told myself I would never go to Coachella again. and here I am going to Coachella again. F@*%!
They almost ALWAYS have a huge act announced right beforehand. Prince was last time.
What sucks is that there are always two bands are you dying to see playing at the same time on different stages.
brandon, ME TOO! LOL. i hate the desert. HATE IT. but the cure made all the misery worthwile in 04. and dammit - Public Freakin ENEMY and Bloody Valentine AND CUREYNESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSi would LOVE to see Friday but i just can't afford the time from work or the hotel for that long
dudeee if prince went again I would freak the fuck out!!! :D
*loves her some prince!*
prince freakin OWNS MY ASSSO NO ONE ELSE CARES ABOUT PUBLIC ENEMY???THEIR NEW ALBUM RULZgawd i wish i could see friday though! CHRIS BOO YOU ARE GOING
Per Rolling Stone, rumors are the last minute announcement will be Bruce Springsteen Saturday night.He is in the LA area that weekend and has a 6 day break in his tour schedule.
you guys get the cure my bloody valentine and throbbing gristle on the same bill .. we get crysal castles and the lik e... im moving over there
Okay, so I totally forgot I had $250 sitting in a "giftaccount" to use for AACX tickets that I didn't end up using!! So HELL to the YEAH baby we have TIX! See you there!
I think what Cat is trying to say is that she loves Public Enemy....and My Bloody Valentine.(by the way I'm going to watch the original movie this week-end, that's got nothing to do with this topic whatsoever.)
Let me be clear. Single day tickets will sell out quickly. They always do. Three day passes rarely sell out until the week before the concert, if at all.
i don't get paid yet, but single day Sunday tix are on my mind, however i might just do that layaway plan to get the 3 day if the 1 day sunday sells out, plus you gotta love some Moz.:Deveryday is like sunday...everyday is silent and gray.i shall see you COFers there. i'm the first one to comment and no one says anything about meeting up with andy... :(
lol andy!its a given that you will be with us!u is muh andy-boo!! (thats if i DO go!):) *still rationalizing!*
Andy, Just layaway the three day ticket. There is an option to only put 10% down and ticketmaster fees right now. Then when it gets closer and you get the tickets you can sell the Saturday one and the Friday one also if you wanted to. I will be there so we will definitely hang out. Where are you staying if you go?
Clockwise, don't be surprised if Public Enemy is playing another stage or tent and not the main stage where Cure is at. That would be a bitchI missed MBV when they did 3 shows here last year in Santa Monica. I'm such a dumb arse
MissCure, that's what i'm thinking of doing, and i'd definitely camp out. it is THEE Coachella experience.and i went by myself for Interpol in '07, you bet your asses i'll be there for The Cure.
I'm not sure if I am going to camp out just yet. I am thinking I might take like a toy hauler or something. I hear they have a lot of rv camping sites nearby. Either that or I am camping. Not sure if I can do a hotel they are pricey.
andy, it's a GIVEN that we will see you there. DOH! of course we love you dearly. :-)cureheart, i thought about that regarding PE. fuck it - i'm seeing PE no matter WHAT! i want to see the cure close so hopefully i still can if PE is on a diff stage, but i have already seen the cure at the secret show up waaaaay close and so if i have to forego a bit of curey closeness to see PE i will. last time i saw PE was eighty-freakin'- NINE.
chris, what is there to rationalize? life is too short and precious to rationalize crap. life is about adventure... and cureyness. :-)and i said never again... lawl
Ouch... if only I could come transatlantic for this one... maybe I could swing a work trip...hey ho - see you at the O2!!!
*agrees with cat* Chris you have to GRAB LIFE BY THE BALLS AND NEVER LET GO! you only live once! :D
that's spoken like a truly sprightly youth, sara! good going, girlfriend!you can grab life by the ovaries too.. from what i understand life is not just a boy
I am so excited that all my Cure Peeps will get to see our boys again so soon.*sends good vibes to the universes for a lotto win*
greyhound from LA to indio is only 25 each way....im reallllly considering doing that.... bahhh its cheaper than renting a car
I'll go if Craig goes....otherwise been there done that, Coachella 2004 and Curiosa 2005 were the 2 worst Cure shows I ever saw. Add that to the drugs, booze and heat and a bunch of bands my old butt has never heard of and it is a pass. However, if the all mighty Parker shows, well...never say never. Seriously looking at the line up every year I only go if I can find 5 bands on 1 day I would go see anyway.
Oh my am I excited!Birthday present to me!!There are always pre-show warm up shows at the Glass House in Pomona.I am going to start hydrating and conditioning now for the heat!!!'04 I ended up sleeping in my car, this year a Hotel! Yeah!!!I also found my ear plugs for MBV. The Santa Monica shows were amazing, I hope they aren't on at the same time as The Cure. Cause no one will be able to hear the Cure if they are!!!Can't wait to meet some of you after lurking here for so long!!Whooooo!!!
Definitely going to be there! :^D
The info is up now on the www.thecure.com also.Coachella will be held on April 19thso,this would mean that, will RSX have his 50th b-day on U.S.A ?:O ???
Yay, yay! Wheee! *jumps around* Yessss!!!! I am so excited about this! :^D
It´s so good to see CURE will be playing so far 2 dates this year, maybe they´ll do a festivals tour this summer including the rumored Werchter fest as they´ve done several times before.And better news if they will launch a large-scale tour around the world celebrating the 30th anniversary, Robert´s 50th bday and maybe the "Dark Album"...Have I the right to dream, isn´t it ?;)
holy shit! i knew it!
hey, if anyone needs a ride and is on my way, i think i am going to do a drive from Portland to Indio...with gas so cheap, it will be less than a plane ticket and much more fun!
i got my ticket, i am ready to rock!
...i was late for this bit of news. WOW!!!!
Well I'm jealous of all you lucky ducks who are going to this thing!Just started a new job so there's no way I'll get time off to go. But I'll be here on concert night waiting for the play list chat! :)
So, if Robert is spending his 50th here, Mary will be here too. I just think there will be more dates than this. Rationally, not wishful thinking here. They've already played Coachella, so IT JUST SEEMS VERY LIKELY. "Friend Of COF": Any clues? ;)...And does anyone remember the days when Robert wouldn't fly? Remember when they took the QE2 for The Prayer Tour?
I just left Amoeba records (Franz Ferdinand did a in-store free show which was cool dancing in the isles of CDs and vinyls) and they were passing out flyers for Coachella and when I heard "see The Cure," I had the biggest smile on my face.
Tim, I will be in COF to chat with you!I may even switch my day off so I can give my full attention to COF - rather than pretending to work.
we going to have a coachella meet up?
im down for a meetup!!!
Mad Bob - excellent point. i have Werchter is a go.and Debi, i was at Amoeba too. and when i saw people getting the Coachella flyers and saying "oh shit! the cure is gonna be there!" i got all giddy as well.sara - i think i'll greyhound it to Indio from LA as well. thinking of camping?
*i hope, not "i have"
sara, why not just fly into palm springs as regina suggested?
I hope they play Lollapalooza.
cat- its cheapest to fly to LAX but the greyhound price might make up the difference....i dont know yet....andy- if I go friday I will probably camp out because ill be by myself but I really would like to go friday its just a matter of getting the money together. I dont care too much for going saturday though...not enough bands I know especially not for 120 bucks
Me too Morris! Holy Christ. This is what I get for not checking COF for a week… I wasn't expecting this! Anah- that's what I was thinking... it looks as though they may be gearing up for a "proper tour"; I can't believe Robert's going to be HERE for his b-day?!! So much for "We weren't planning on touring again for awhile". <333333333333333333I hope we get a "Dark Tour" in our near future! I hope they can make it to the East Coast soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!What an awesome fucking year this is turning out to be....THE CURE PWNS EVERYONE'S ASS
holy crapppppp! my friends and i decided if we all save up enough money we're road tripping from VA to cali for this. YES!
*<3 to sarab* X)
Sure *seems* like a good chance there would / could be other shows - especially if the second half of the record comes out. I know they can't play the LA area - as per Coachella contract - but does anyone know what that "no play" distance is?Thoughts on other shows? Tour? Craig?
sameoldact-I looked into it and theres diff rumors. i heard 2 weeks and i heard a couple of months. however there is an acception. bands can only play at the glasshouse in pomona CA. "But there ARE some exceptions. A music venue called The Glasshouse in Pomona, CA will sometimes host popular Coachella acts just a day or 2 before the festival. Because of Goldenvoice's special relationship with the Glasshouse (it's also the only non-Ticketmaster place to buy Coachella tickets) these are the only "official" secret shows."so far nothing is scheduled there april 5-20 so i bet SOMEONE from coachella will play there..sources:http://www.ehow.com/how_2032116_secret-shows-coachella.htmlandhttp://www.casenet.com/music/glasshousecalendar.htm
Portishead played the Mayan last year before Coachella so it's not always just the Glasshouse. I don't think a headliner has ever played a secret L.A. warmup show though.
ANOTHER secret show possibility?*drools, then faints, then drowns in pool of drool*
.....and a pleaseant time is guaranteed for all.my best friend and i are driving from deep south texas, via san antonio, and are looking for two other partners in crime to join us. so, if you are en route via I10, contact me so we can do undo it all.
ohhhhh, forgot to add that we are camping onsite and have purchased a tent with room for two others. all you would need purchase is the campground access which i believe is $55 and bring your own sleeping stuff. we are attending all three days. who said, "me me me?"
Just got my ticket!!!!!!!!!!! this is so unreal! will def make up for not getting into la's secret show and the rain incident at jimmy kim's....pumped to hear some songs from 4:13...anndd hopefully some b-sides -mark
Thanks Sara, for the great info. I guess time will tell...It would be great to get the bad taste out of our mouths from the secret show, and the Kimmel (sp?) nightmare (who cares how to spell his name...):-)
COF friends,How hot does it get at night at Coachella? I need to know...thanks...-mark
Last time we were out there in August at night and it was like 100degrees. Being that it is April perhaps less. I'm expecting maybe 80s.
I stand corrected, a friend of mine says during April at Coachella it gets a little chilly. Like light jacket status.
