(False) Rumor: Cure to play Loreley?

According to the Tabak-Weiss website, The Cure are scheduled to play Loreley, Germany on June 25th. No idea about that website. Does anyone know if it's usually reliable? Obviously, this is far from official, so no need to start making those travel plans yet. Just something to keep an eye on for now. (Thanks Dan)

Update: "I called the shop and was told that it was a wrong information. It is already deleted from their page."
(Thanks Shellheart)

  11. Craig - there is not a hope in hell that I will be able to talk HB into this one. I think two Cure trips in one year is about all I can wangle.

  12. I was there at Loreley when they played in May 1989 - what a great line up of bands that day - Pixies, Mission, Sugarcubes, Shellyan Orphan. It remains by far my favourite gig EVER!!!!I remember Robert saying how ugly he felt playing in daylight...

  16. Remember that website that said that the cure were going to do a tour of Europe? - then it all fell through. Maybe this is a left over rumor from that. Then again it could be the first step towards something very exciting!

  17. There seems to be something to it, my ticket shop (Cologne / Germany, not too far from Loreley) told me in January that they were waiting for confirmation of a Cure show at Loreley.

  18. off topic:

    I've always been intrigued by the song Ariel, the one that is on The Top Deluxe CD, there are two versions, that one and one recorded on a radio show if i remember correctly, anyway both versions are really good and basically the same with a few differences but i just can't understand what Robert is singing, i love that song and i took a stab at decyphering the lyrics and i think i got most of the song, most likely it's full of mistakes, anyway there are some bits missing and i was wondering if anyone knew of any transcript that contained the lyrics or something like that.
    I love the song i think it's a very rare gem and i would love to know the lyrics correctly so i'd really appreciatte the help. thanks : )

  23. There seems to be a mix-up with the 2004 show. Originally scheduled for June, 25th (2004!) it had to be moved from Loreley to Cologne because of Earth, Wind & Fire having booked the location for that same date. Anyway - still hoping... ;-)
