  5. With ANY bootleg from 1985-1992 you will find that the drums were the lead instrument in The Cure's sound.

    In Entreat+, Robert's pretended to rewrite history and made the drums sound like shit... ABSURD!

    Why he did that?

    He is really pissing off most of his old loyal fans. Fans that grew up with "that Cure sound", the sound that defined their best years, commercially and creatively.

    Now, Entreat+ is almost like hearing the current Cure lineup (with jason 'playing' the drums) with all their bad sound!

  13. Mogwai, I'll do one better. I'll put up BOTH of the first two Wembley shows. :) By the way, the audio on #2 is excellent. :)

  14. Shawn, schweeeeeet. Thanks, my old copy was a bit ropey to be honest.

  15. Thanks a lot for those...
    Any chance of someone providing an A+ audience (Not the Cd bootleg) recording of Paris Bercy 09/07/89 ?
    In my opinion, one of the best Cure concert ever...
    Thanks to Cof and all for all the memories...

  18. These are great! Now, if only I could find a recording of the first date of the 4Tour at the Patriot Center... The only time I've had the opportunity to see The Cure!

    ReplyDelete
  19. *the first US date of the 4tour...

  20. many of the major forums have lots of shows for download. i know that cureconnections recently did a "prayer tour re-live" in which every (or most, at least) prayer tour show was posted on its anniversary

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can anyone point me to a soundboard boot of a WISH-era show? I'd love to hear a live rendition of "From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea."

    ReplyDelete
  22. Don: Why do you need a boot? Just listen to Show. : )

    ReplyDelete
  23. Craig: Thanx for reminding me about SHOW. It was not in my iTunes library. A quick trip upstairs to my CD shelves fixed that problem!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Fantastic!!!! Does any one have the Aug. 22nd show from the Cap centre in Maryland?

    That was my first Cure concert - it was a religious experience.

    And was Shelleyan Orphan's sets ever recorded as well?

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is fantastic! Unfortunately I missed the opportunity to attend the Dodger Stadium concert as I wasn't a Cure fan back in '89. Listening to these audio files is the next best thing. Impressed w/ how great these sound. Thanks!!

  26. This isn't Disintegration/Prayer Tour-related but I recently came across this great article on the Hometown Pasadena site which had several unexpected mentions of The Cure, as well as some early KROQ history:

  29. Thanks for everyone who uploaded those prayer tour concerts.

    Just a thought, it would be great if someone could post, besides the date/name, the quality of the recording, for those who doesn´t have a good connection.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow...I didn't know there were that many recorded shows floating around! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is great!
    You should find most of the missing shows at cureconnections, they offered the tour last year.
    If you are interested you can download from here: http://www.cureconnections.com/the-prayer-tour-1989-re-live/

  32. Thanks so much! I had both Mansfield, MA shows (I attended both) on cassette a LOOONG time ago, so it's great to get one of them (the best night) in mp3. It was the one time I did Robert hair in public.

    i have some of kiss me tour stuff too if anyone wants,,,you don't see much of them out there , i need to recatalogue what shows i still have as i ended up deleting alot to make room on my harddrive...30+ GB of cure music was a bit much...i can only listen to so many different versions of a song :P

    ReplyDelete
  36. @birdmad2000 i just bought myself a new external hard drive on ebay because my 100 gig one was filled up..... mostly with cure shows.. hahaha

  39. If you guys need CD covers to go with any of these shows be sure to check out CURECONNECTIONS. CD covers are available for every show of the Prayer Tour. Pretty cool!

  40. Happy to be able to help :-).
    They have some pretty good stuff shared there, many versions I didn't know were existing and some have an awesome quality.
    And at the moment I'm grabbing some Dream Tour shows I was missing, cureconnections is offering the shows as they happened 10 years ago. You can find the shows here: http://www.cureconnections.com/the-dream-tour-2000-re-live-and-ccc-compilations/
    It's absolutely amazing :-)
