Nice idea for Vegas

Robert, stop reading this now! And DO NOT highlight the following text! And don't read the comments! ; )
But to everyone else going to the Vegas show, please highlight this: "I was thinking it would be really COOL to sing happy birthday to Robert in Vegas just before the 1st encore when he walks back on stage. If you could get the word out then most people will know to expect it and join in and make it that much louder! I think he would be tickled for sure." (Thanks KelBel)

  2. He's like TOTALLY reading this and thinking "But of COURSE they should!"
    ;)
    It's perfect, Kel!

  3. terrible idea,
    getting bob in a good mood during encore time, means even less of the tiny tiny chance of a faith encore.

    don't do it.

  4. Paul: Don't worry. The encores will be #1 - pop, #2 - old school, #3 - Faith. : )

  5. good idea kel! Chris! Get on with making a sign! Lots o' glitter!

  6. I hear you Paul and think you make a valid point. However, I'm thinking because it's a weekend that Simon will get to pick and we know he loves the pop encore...sigh.

    @ Craig - That sounds good to me, though #1 - KMKMKM, #2 - Old School, #3 -Full four song Faith encore would be cooler :)

  7. YEAHHH!!!! GREAT IDEA!!!! I'M IN FOR SURE!!!!

  8. YAY !!!!!!!!

    AGREED !!!!!

    Hey Robert humiliated Simon in L.A. on Simon's birthday so now it's time for Robert to get a spanking. Robert's 50th!!! In Las Vegas no less!!! He'll be so happy that he'll launch into a 23-minute long version of "The Same Deep Water As You." Then they play the B-side collection from "Japanese Whispers."

    So, we finally have that to look forward to besides getting old and then dying.

  9. Awesome idea! Wish I could be there. Can't wait to hear about it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think we should also do up a happy 50th birthday Robert poster and have everyone there sign it that wants to. What do you think??

    ReplyDelete
  11. Cool idea! Sounds like a lot of fun! I can't be there but I'll be singing at home while following along in the Vegas Show Blog! :) Please someone tape this for the peeps who cannot be there!

    And I think Robert will actually love it! Well I sure hope he does! If he gets embarrassed, he has to think of it this way....Whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!

    ReplyDelete
  12. YAY! This is a great idea! I am so excited!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. only one catch...it's not his birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well I think we all know that, but there's not a show on his birthday, and it would be hard to do it at Coachella, so close enough.

    ReplyDelete
  15. LOL ROSEPETALS!!!

    REV AND KEL! THIS IS THE BEST IDEA EVER!

    ReplyDelete
  16. someone pack the silly string!

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is fantastic!!! I'll be there as will my mom, siblings and cousin.. I'll pass the word!

    ReplyDelete
  18. craig will you be attending the vegas show as well? :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. That's a fabulous idea!
    I can't sing at all, but with so many voices no one will notice! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haven't you noticed that his birthday is a few days later? It is supposed to bring bad luck to say Happy Birthday before the real date. You wouldn't do that to Robert for sure!!!

  22. Count me in! Assuming that I make it to Vegas. Just waiting on confirmation from the boss.

    ReplyDelete
  23. i will make some flyers to pass out before the show to people going in, just a reminder. and of course i'll tell anyone i meet or see.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It is not only one day before his birthday it is 4 days. So I don`t think that it makes sense to sing Happy Birthday!

    Sorry can`t agree. I would not like a birthday wish 4 days to early....

    ReplyDelete
  25. Good. Those worried about silly superstitions, or that it's too early, just don't sing! Your problem is solved. You can sing on April 21st. : P

    To the rest, who are simply trying to do something nice, and have a good time, have a blast!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's such a cool idea! Just make sure at least one of you manages to film the expression on Robert's face! XD

    ReplyDelete
  27. Please for the love of God let this happen. His face would be priceless.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This sounds like a blast!

    Flight to Vegas and hotel: $400
    Price of show ticket: $177
    Look on Robert's face when the crowd breaks into "Happy Birthday": Priceless

    (BTW - KelBel - you kick ass! You convinced me to go after Saturday night. TY!)

  29. I think that is a great idea! I am soooo in! I think he will really appreciate the gesture!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sara that would be great if you could record the b-day sing-a-long! I'd hate to miss Robert's reaction when everyone starts to sing!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm on the sign!!!!!

    We'll make it Thursday night in the hotel!

    great idea kel!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. this will be so much fun. Someone bring the harmonica! lol

    ReplyDelete
  47. Are any of you guys actually staying at the Palms hotel?

    ReplyDelete
  48. awesome idea, KB! i salute your creativity!

    ReplyDelete
  49. sofia! - I guess you are not coming then :( ?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Someone should make a banner or something to pass around. Make sure it's big enough though, we all know Robert can't see past the 14th row :D

    ReplyDelete
  51. You guys should make up some flyers saying that and hand them out to people going into the show. That way even people not on here will know!

    Great idea, wish I could be there!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. mock goth gurl - yeah, like April- Palms is crazy expensive. I dunno what others are doing, but bill's gambling hall was in the middle of the strip and reasonable, with a friend-of-a-friend reco, so I went for that. Where ever we all end up, we'll find each other in the end, right? : )

    ReplyDelete
  53. You know the Palms are trying to rip-off unsuspecting Cure fans, when you can get a room cheaper at the Bellagio.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thanks for the hotel tips you guys.
    I always find the most stressfull part of these Cure shows is making all of the arrangements.

    Sure wish I had an assistant to do it for me...or even the money to pay for this trip! I had saved for years for the summer shows, but this was a pleasant surprise!

    ReplyDelete
  55. For those who need to make travel arrangements, I highly recommend kayak.com. I usually start there to compare rates. They have great tools for finding exactly what you need. Then I go to the hotel or airline's direct website to actually book. Good luck, everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Kate, I do the exact same thing! Kayak is a great travel search engine. Something else to keep in mind, prices should come down as the date get s closer. Hotels and airlines will be offering specials to fill the empties.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks, crowbi-wan!

    Great suggestion about waiting until the event is closer.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Try the Rio, its fairly close and inexpensive. That's where a lot are staying.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Having stayed at the Palms once, it is certainly a rip-off & I wouldn't recommend anyone staying there. They've got some sort of idea that it's the premier place to stay in Vegas. No f**king way!!

    They overcharged me for a bare, bones basic room just because I was there during a concert event! The clubs & restaurants have nothing but over priced drinks, food & cover charges---if they even let you in! My friends & I were turned away from The Ghost Bar! I guess we were just way to nerdy to be allowed in?

    I recommend staying at The Rio, The Flamingo or Harrah’s. They are modestly priced hotels not too far from The Palms. Vegas has over rooms 100,000+ rooms….more than any other major US city! So you don’t need to stay at the Palms but if you want to, I hope you have a better experience than I did.

    And for the foodies out there, I'd stop by the Rio, they the best food in town at the Carnival World Buffet!!! Too much to chose from but Yum!!! And their clubs are cool too if you like that sort of stuff!

  60. Also try bookingbuddy dot com....its pretty good for airfare and rooms. Also, if there is a certain hotel you like, sign up for their emailing list. They will email you great deals!

    *insider tip - when booking a hotel, ask for the travel agent rate. Sometimes its WAY less. Only prob is you may be asked for an IATA # or your TA card, but if you are not, its a sweet deal!..take this from a girl who's worked half her life in hotels!

    ReplyDelete
  61. ps - I got a SUPER sweet deal on a car in Vegas. If anyone is looking to rent a car, email me and I will give you the code! $10 a day for compact, $14 for full size.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I booked at Extended Stay America. Hotel room price $78.70 after taxes and everything. A 2 bed suite (beds seperated by a wall, you could take a room-mate) with fridge and kitchenette. Only a 2 star hotel with mixed reviews but if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep it is only 2blocks from the Palms

    ReplyDelete
  63. APRIL~ i'll take that code! cat and i will need to rent a car to drive to LA on saturday!

    SWEET DEAL!

    ReplyDelete
  64. and sorry april - i think you have my email - but just in case - its here in my profile!

    ReplyDelete
  65. This is a very good idea! I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  66. AWESOME IDEA KEL! Too bad Robert's probably going to read this so it wont be an *actual* surprise, but good enough!

    Sarab- Thanks for trying to share with the rest of us who can't go! You rock! I hope you can get the look on Robert's face!! woohoo! *<333 crazy Curepeople*

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm coming in from Detroit to see the show. I have never seen The Cure play in such a small venue. I am so excited! I hope to meet some of you while I am there and sing happy birthday to Robert with you!

    ReplyDelete
  68. My wife just surprised me with a trip to Vegas and tickets to the show..........yeah she rules!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Brandon: She sounds like a keeper. : ) Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Brandon: Wow, that is awesome!! Congrats!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Brandon, that is awesome!

    As of today, we are going to Vegas, too!

    Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Anyone without a car looking to get to Rio, check out these sites. They have info on shuttles....Looks like you basically take a shuttle ($5.00) to the strip to Harrah's, then take another shuttle(FREE) from Harrah's to Rio (Rio is a Harrah's property). A taxi is around $15-20

    http://www.goingtovegas.com/kpv-get.htm and http://off2vegas.com/transit.html

    Both are good sites.
