  1. Hi Craig, Hi everyone.

    I wish to all of you CURE peeps @ The Pearl a great show.

    I couldn´t be here to follow the live setlit because i´ll be @ the Mexican RS´s b-day party tonight.

    Every time that it´s a concert´s night i feel the same exciting feeling.

    I like a lot to see the recently taken pics, the info that reporters provide and all this sort of things.

    AHHH I WANT TO SEE CURE ¡¡¡


    Greetings ¡¡¡

    :)


    P.S: I´ll catch up all CURE show highlights when i´ll be back at home

    ;)

  3. V: But your motives are the same. : P

    ReplyDelete
  4. Thanks Craig & V...

    Yes, for sure i´ll have fun.

    A CURE event is too much fun guaranteed.

    See you later... !!!

    :)

    P.S. Hoping to see that CURE played s couple of new tunes tonight...

    Can i dream about it, right ?

    ;)

  5. I am so kicking myself for not going to this show and I hope for another opportunity to see the cure this year. Craig I think it's way past time for the cure to make their return to NOLA. Thank god for COF! I'll be following the live setlist tonight and dreaming I was in Vegas. I hope the livestream happens. :) All you folks there have a fantastic time!

  6. Wow, I bet Andy is a happy Simon fanboy right now!

    ReplyDelete
  7. And the most important thing:

    Sing Happy B-day to RS the louder as possible.

    My voice will sing to him too.

    Make him feel beloved for all his fans ( us ).


    I want to see his face when it happens...

    :)

    Bye...

  12. Lisa: You should read Cof. You would have seen that 2 months ago. : )

    ReplyDelete
  13. Has anyone spotted Simon's tights?

    ReplyDelete
  14. i'm not jealous.

    i'm sitting at home alone baking sugar cookies and taking lots of prescription pain killers.

    ...should be a very enjoyable evening.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You sound fun Morris. Can I come over? But make sure you have tights like Simon's.

    ReplyDelete
  16. oh well what can I say.. got stuff going on ...

    ReplyDelete
  17. aww, that Robert, I still find him freakishly adorable in an 'escaped mental patient' sort of way. I still remember when I bought that t-shirt with his giant head on it, I put it on as I was about to go to sleep and said, "Oh yeah, I get to sleep with Robert Smith tonight!"

    Re Kate's Bloodflowers: makes sense! ;)
    I wouldn't mind gettin' me one of those!!

    Hopefully I can pop in for the chat tonight.... almost makes me wish I could be there, but like many others here on the East Coast, I can't really afford to travel anywhere else. boo.

    <333 Everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's alright Morris... pain killers can be fun! Just don't over do it! *hugs<3*

    ReplyDelete
  33. "security keeps shooing peeps into the slots area"

    ROFL.


    morris did you share some with happy?

    gawd, i cant even start to imagine what setlist theyll play tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  34. "security keeps shooing peeps into the slots area"

    I first read that as "Security keeps shooting peeps into the slots area". I imagined little marshmallow ducks flying everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  35. hiya shellheart! do i know you from CCC?

    in the webcast, it looks like they raelly were playing slots!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hmmm 90 minutes to go now! Damn I wish I had the $$$ to have been able to get to Vegas! I should have went, I just realized I could have stayed with my Uncle. He lives near Vegas! Duh where is my brain sometimes. Still too broke to afford the tickets & the flight.

    East Coast Cure Peeps need to have a Cure Event like this to happen later in the Year! I know I'm not the only East Coaster and others too feeling depressed for not being their tonight!

    And some peeps got to meet Simon! Very cool! Can't wait to see the pics. Looks like everyone is having a fun time so far! Enjoy the show!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yum those cookies Morris made look Yummy!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Don't think so I am not very active at ccc...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Guten morgen, shellheart. :)

    ReplyDelete

  42. V: I'm surprised you didn't reply in German. : P

    ReplyDelete
  43. About 1hr 10mins until showtime now is that right? The time difference is baffling.

    P.S. Hi! *waves*

    ReplyDelete
  44. So how is everyone doing tonight? It feels like forever since a live show.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks DJ! I tried to install the AT&T's webcast viewer but nothing happens. My laptop is so messed up, I can't install anything. Oh well no big deal, I'm going to see them in Philly in a few weeks. I love FF's and the new stuff is great!!!!

    It's been a while since I last posted on here, how have you been DJ? The East Coast gets The Cure during their big tours but very rarely do we get extra shows like they did in December & now! Oh well I shouldn't complain, at least they do come to Philly during most of their tours!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Andrew, I'd feel better if I was at The pearl right now!!! Actually I'm good how about you?

    ReplyDelete
  47. CureKitty: We really should do an East Coast CoF gathering. Helsabot, you're over here too?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Whooohoo It's a Cure show night!
    Hi everyone...It's been so long :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Lux: Yes, you've got the time right.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah I'm OK kitty. Very excited about tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  51. aww, but seeing them live is even better cure kitty!!

    looking absolutely forward to pauls reports

    ReplyDelete
  52. Anah I totally agree it would be cool to have a East Coast COF gathering either with a Cure show or not! I'd be there in a heartbeat! I need to meet some COF peeps!

    ReplyDelete
  53. That's good Andrew! I miss these live show nights and it's nice to have two this weekend! The Cure need to do a big tour again so we can do this more often.

    ReplyDelete
  54. If we had one, Craig would have to come.

    ReplyDelete
  55. aah finally get to sit.

    Yes Anah, I'm in Maryland. *touches you inappropriately* ;)

    I saw them at the Patriot Center last year... such a great show. I'd really love for them to come back here soon.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yes it is better to see them live dj! I'm excited it will be my 1st FF concert!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Anah maybe we should have it in NOLA????? Craig would have to come if it's in his home town!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Posted a photo of the new shirts.

    ReplyDelete
  59. *blushing*


    We should have it at Disney World. A CoF meetup at Disney...teacups here we come!

    ReplyDelete
  60. If we paid for his plane tickets he would have to come, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  61. hmm, I'm not so sure about the spewing head thing, but I like the one on the far left and the ones with just stitches.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Cool shirts but I still see the ridiculous prices are still being charged. And yes if I was there I'd buy them no matter the dollar amount. LOL!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Craig, you seriously need to make it to a show... I know your obligations as a double agent make it difficult to schedule for these kinds of things... but it's really about time.

    Sorry Anah! Didn't know you were so bashful! XD

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yes Disney World would be cool! I haven't been their for ages. Craig couldn't miss out on that trip could he?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Next Cure Show, craig should go! Let's hope they do something on this of the country later in the year!

    ReplyDelete
  66. *nah, I was just blushing from all the heat!


    Surely he can put saving the World on hold for a few days to come to a gathering, and/or a show?

    ReplyDelete
  67. oh my goodness - $40 for a shirt??

    YAAAY cure kitty!! i expect pics please :)


    off topic - it seems the pirate bay founders are in trouble. :(

    ReplyDelete
  68. I would love to see another world tour within the next 8-12 months. I really don't think a summer tour is on the cards although I would love to be proved wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I don't know, Craig's always seemed like he's very keen on meeting his obligations to the world. :)

    What happened with Pirate Bay? Didn't they get in trouble before??

    About the t-shirt: I think I paid like $50 for my giant Robert headed one...

    ReplyDelete
  70. $50 for a t-shirt?

    //facepalm

    ReplyDelete
  71. $50 for a shirt? You have heard of eBay right?

    ReplyDelete
  72. geez louise. even PAST TOUR shirts (bloodflowers, and EVEN WISH - and most wish shows were before i was born) go cheaper than that.

    i saw a rare lovesong (prayer tour) shirt go for $12.

    pity, those precious treasures should be going for much higher. should be higher than current tour shirts! (meaning tour shirts now should go a bit lower)

    piratebay - swedish court rules four founders get a year in prison, and pay 3.6 MILLION in fines. shit.

    ReplyDelete
  73. The pirate Bay guys will appeal.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Dj I'll try to post my pics if I get any good ones. The show is GA and I'm not sure I want to fight to get to the front. I hate GA & at my age Ok I'm only 40 but the pushing & shoving just get to me anymore. I know it will happen at the venue FF is playing in Philly! So if I'm in the back, I may not get the best pics. But I will try & post the good ones if I get any! Tickets were cheap just $25 bucks!!! Wish all show were this price.

    ReplyDelete
  75. fuuuuck... I didn't hear about that. Damn, those poor guys! but... isn't their website still up...? I'm pretty sure it is. I don't know, I could be getting confused...

    I don't remember precisely how much I paid for the shirt. I bought it after the show was over, so I was exhausted and dehydrated beyond all belief. It could have been more or less, I really don't recall what I paid for it! XP
    I hope most if not ALL that money went to The Cure...

    ReplyDelete
  76. Shirts in the past (the 80's) were cheap but the T-shirt quality was always iffy. Thin shirts, poor printing, too small....well at least the shirts I got. They are way over priced today but I just cannot go to a show and not get at least one! You need a souvenir of the nights show to take home!

    ReplyDelete
  77. is it just me or do you have to refresh the vegas livecast page for the latest vids?

    cure kitty - $25??! its good to see some bands using sensible prices for their fans

    ReplyDelete
  78. Is anyone else having trouble looking at Sara's webcast thingy? I know it's not live now, but it won't play what's already been recorded...

    ReplyDelete
  79. Up yours "Configuration Error"!

    ReplyDelete
  80. helsabot - it did that to me too. i just closed the window and the new window worked

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yeah I'm having issues with the Livecast. It may be because I'm in the UK. It says I need to download a Plugin but when I try to, it doesn't work.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I don't think the location is supposed to affect you Andrew... I think I need to update my player or something... dammit.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm switching between IE and Firefox, but like I said, it won't play what's already been recorded... it just won't play at all. blah.

    ReplyDelete
  84. It didn't work for me in Firefox, but it played in IE.

    ReplyDelete
  85. dj when I got the tickets I thought it's only $25 bucks! This must be wrong but no it was only $25 bucks. They are playing the Electric Factory in Philly. Cool place to see a show not too big and it all GA so maybe that why it's cheap? Most of the venues they are playing are small & the prices are mostly under $50.00. Maybe later on they may play bigger venues & the prices will be higher? Who knows but with prices like that, I'd go to more shows!

    ReplyDelete
  86. hmm, it's alright. I'm going to download Quick Time Pro and see if that works.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Works fine for me in Firefox 3.0.8

    ReplyDelete
  88. hello all! just sawsimon on stage left!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Craig: It must be something to do with my plugins then.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I'm at the show. Waiting for it to start. Got to meet Rev Jo and Kate. I'm all kinds of excited!!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I can see sara's videos fine but the sound is to low even with my volume turned way up. Not sure if it's the recording or the player not quite working right?

    ReplyDelete
  92. I can get it loud kitty... sounds like people are having issues all round.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Good to see COF peeps in attendance are posting on here!

    ReplyDelete
  94. V: What type of plugins do you need? I might have what you're looking for. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  95. llc--It could be my laptop. I had some major issues with Vista (to long to explain) so all sort of stuff on my laptop are fucked up! I'm just glad I can still access the web to keep up with the COF!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Craig: Hmm... :) Hmm......... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  97. exactly ! reminds me of the 08 4tour days :).

    ReplyDelete
  98. UTS to start, or will we have a surprise set?

    ReplyDelete
  99. DA - had no idea you were there! hope you got lots of hugs, have fun :)


    BELLSSSSSS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I still can't get the Livecast. I have tried Firefox and Safari :(

    ReplyDelete
  101. I'm watching Festival 2005 right now. Really hoping they will play The Kiss tonight!!! Of course I would die if they played Other Voices too, but that's unlikely. UTS about to start?????????

    ReplyDelete
  102. Did anyone text any messages to the # Sara gave to be displayed on the big screen? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  103. we are taking video..gonna upload when we get home. haven't met any cof peeps...stuck behind a crowd ..maybe after???

    ReplyDelete
  104. V-am doing one now, not sure if it'll work though?

    ReplyDelete
  105. you text "pearl" to the number?

    wouldnt that mean pearl would show up on the screen?

    forgive me ignorance. im the only teen existing who doesnt text LOL

    ReplyDelete
  106. Andrew: You might have more luck with quick time... I can download the bloody video but I still can't watch it. I get disconected. Eh, I don't have the time or inclination to figure this out...

    ReplyDelete
  107. ****please let's all dedicate this evening to a dear friend of many Cure friends on the MFC. Selkie/Mandy. I just found out she passed away April 16. RIP Mandy. ***. This one's for you :).

    ReplyDelete
  108. i just read that... i talked to her a few times and sent her one of my zines for her son to see... so sad.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I didn't even really know her, but it makes me tear up. This evening is a great way to honor her memory anyways :).

    ReplyDelete
  118. Such sad news lisa. I used to post to the MFC and I remember her from there. She was a huge Cure fan and will be missed by many! May she rest in peace.

    ReplyDelete
  119. rose and hels, yes she was a mod. I just saw her pic too and instantly remembered her. man..

    ReplyDelete
  120. Didn't know her but that is sad news.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  128. Ohmygosh! That news about Selkie is so sad!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I posted the link to the post on mfc made by her husband -see above.

    ReplyDelete
  130. That is just terrible news. I just got back on the computer a few mins ago to follow the setlist live and saw this news. How horribly sad for her hubby and children. I never met her in person, but I did know her from mfc for quite some time. RIP Mandy, you will be missed by many.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Oh wow, that is so sad. :(

    ReplyDelete
  132. I bet she'll be at the Cure show tonight :) :).

    ReplyDelete
  133. Sara is having trouble with her phone charger. Livecasts might be limited.

    ReplyDelete
  134. aww too bad, but when is the show starting ??? lol

    ReplyDelete
  135. trying to text the pearl, can anyone say the number works?

    ReplyDelete
  136. I tried to dj and got a msg that it didn't work.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Mandy will be on stage with the guys tonight...

    ReplyDelete
  138. man i love those shirts!

    if they're not planning on a tour, at least put them for sale on the site, please!

    ReplyDelete
  139. DJ: I tried, but it didnt work. I just tried the number, I didnt put "Pearl" anywhere in it though, as I thought it would do what you said.

    ---Half hour late? LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Must be crazy at The Pearl right now! I bet they will not start till 9.

    ReplyDelete
  141. So this is why they asked for the later curfew? :) I was just dreaming that tonight would be a 4 hour gig. :P

    ReplyDelete
  142. "---Half hour late? LOL."

    Really? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  143. vanilla - exactly.


    30 mins ago? i was about to say 'is paul so drunk he forgot to text us?' LOL. but then i realized theyre late.. as usual

    ReplyDelete
  144. Could this delay be related to them wanting to extend the curfew?

    ReplyDelete
  145. If it is going to be 4 hours, I should kick myself right now for not going!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Somebody needs to get Robert out of the poker room right now!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Maybe Robert is winning a lot at the blackjack tables???? LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  148. if they DO start at 9 - miles and miles away in a desert somewhere, Morrisey is going to start his set too

    ReplyDelete
  149. Aww, I was looking forward to them. Oh, well, it can't be helped. (:

    Hope everyone there's enjoying it a whole bunch! :DD

  151. Thanks for ruining the suspense, Jeff! : )

    ReplyDelete
  152. Maybe Robert is playing Keno with the old geezers since he will be 50 soon.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Moz or The Cure? I'd take the Cure anyday! The Smith was the one band I'd loved in the 80's that I never saw a concert for. Not even when Morrisy went solo. Did I miss anything at their shows???

    ReplyDelete
  154. oh... sorry for the setlist spoilers but that IS the setlist. I promise.

    ReplyDelete
  155. MMM prayers for rain.. strange day.. to wish impossible things.. want..

    ReplyDelete
  156. LoL Rose! Keno is the worst game you can play in Vegas!

    ReplyDelete
  157. Oh I believe you. : ) At least we don't know the encores. Have fun, Jeff!

    ReplyDelete
  158. Thanks for the spoilers jeff! :(

    ReplyDelete
  159. "I'm having the best time ever with Cure dorks. Best concert ever bitch. LOL" - Paul K

    best live reporter ever.

    ReplyDelete
  160. um... seems like a pretty 'standard' setlist...

    ReplyDelete
  161. Yes, but old people like keno. Just kidding, he's gorgeous at any age.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Hmm no new songs (although I wasn't expecting any). That dark album seems further and further away.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Paul is one funny drunk COF peep!!!! LOL!!!! I love it!
