Robert gives an update!

Welcome back, Robert! So good to hear from him again! Posted in the comments on the official site:

AS OF NOW...

'REFLECTIONS' IS A SPECIAL - A ONE TIME ONLY (TWO TIMES ONLY?!!) EVENT - FILMED BOTH NIGHTS WITH A VIEW TO CREATING A DVD...

AS THINGS STAND WE HAVE NO PLANS TO PLAY THIS SHOW ANYWHERE ELSE...

BUT THEN LAST MONTH I THOUGHT BESTIVAL WAS GOING TO BE THE FIRST CURE SHOW OF THE YEAR!!!

WE WILL SEE WHAT THIS 'REFLECTIONS' EXPERIENCE IS LIKE BEFORE MAKING ANY DECISIONS AS TO WHOWHENWHEREWHAT OR HOW...

FEEL THE FLUX YOUNG JEDI!

  2. Feel the flux indeed! I guess we shouldn't complain about having so little time to make travel plans, when he's having to organize a whole concert and all the filming details and everything that goes with it!

    THANK YOU Robert and all the Cure people and staff for pulling this amazing show together so fast, and for filming it for those that can't be there! We love you! See you soon!

    He is getting GIDDY you can tell.

    Oh ROBERT we can’t wait to see you and boys play again! It will be awesome!

  4. "feel the flux young Jedi!"

    this might have made my day right here x] oh Robert :P

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love it when he's like this! All playful and happy. How can he not be? He sees us all going insane this week, so he knows we love them. : )

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hannah: Totally agree! I will say that forever now. Star Wars will never be the same. : )

    ReplyDelete
  7. Great !!!!!!

    The MAN has spoken!

    I really hope the Reflection shows gives them lots of energy to make big future plans.

    Is just me or someone posted here that he'd maybe forgotten his password and today Smith wrote about that.

    Is a sign that HE DOES READ COF?

    Craig?

    :D

  8. "The Flux is strong with this one!"

    "Use The Flux, Luke!"

    "May The Flux be with you. Always."

    : )

  9. he must be bemused that the fans managed to take down the sydney operah house website ;)
    i'd feel chuffed too!

    ReplyDelete

    i apologize if anyone was traumatized.

  12. And old joke from less joyful days on CoF:

    Cure Wars: Revenge of the Smith. : )

    ReplyDelete
  13. I need to mention that is sooo good to me that Robert mixed The CURE with the movies i like the most.


    The CURE Kingdom Strikes Back..

    ReplyDelete
  14. More blogger weirdness? My flux comment disappeared?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Guys, I know I don't have to say this, but given his comments about seeing how the shows go before making other plans, SHOW THEM THE LOVE IN SYDNEY!!! : )

    ReplyDelete
  16. haha! may the flux be with you.... brilliant :D

    there's nothing left... but flux... x]

    ReplyDelete
  17. Heron: Sigh...I hope not! But they are still working on it, so probably a few more bumps in the road ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Craig: No, it's just me being dense (DOH!) it's on the previous post, I thought I posted it here. *slaps forehead*

    ReplyDelete
  19. if robert reeds this blog maybe my chances are still alive that he will contact me concerning the vienna opera as a location for a follow up to the sydney opera gigs. The opera is nearly empty durning july and august. come on give it a thought;-)))

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes! V was just suggesting to me that they should do a full opera house tour. I'm all for that! But they better be prepared to play at least 3-4 nights in some spots, to meet the ticket demand. : )

    ReplyDelete
  21. ...and to amortize the lease costs;-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. GOD I HOPE ROBERT WASNT BEING A STAR WARS GEEK...HE IS TO BRILLIANT AND I LOVE HIM TOO MUCH TO TOLEARTE THAT.....YIKES!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm sure he'll be heartbroken by that. Geek on, Robert! And start watching Doctor Who! Cooler and British. And I'm sure Matt Smith is a fan. : )

    ReplyDelete
  24. It IS brilliant to have some Star Wars in there. If he adds to that anything re Lord of the Rings, I'll go fruit loops.

    hmm, Disney Concert Hall in LA is quite impressive ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the "opera house" idea! Me, being a Battlestar Galactica freak, imagines the opera house on that show. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Damn, Lord of the Rings, Battlestar, I love you guys! : )

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh shit!!!!!!!!!!

    this gives me hope! I hope he'll see that this could be a great experience for not only the band but the fans worldwide!

    I literally jumped out in joy!

    Robert! Do it!

    Please!

    Let this 22 year old Cure fan from Los Angeles who can't afford to travel to Sidney see this show live!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Andy: They really should stop in LA on the way back, right? Take a break from the long flights, play a few shows, then travel on. : )

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have a toy R2-D2 that lights up, and in 97 the band found it very amusing especially Simon, and all the guys except roger played with the R2 and laughed, and smiled... it was great! Perry even tried to take it from me.

    One of my favorite Cure memories. I had that toy with me, because I knew Robert loves Star Wars.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love that story so much, CV!

    I miss Perry so much. Such a sweet and wonderful guy.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You should have let Perry have it, CV! : )

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lord of the Rings > everything else...just saying!

    Interesting that he said a month ago Reflections wasn't happening, weird!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Craig, I told Perry no way, that was my good luck charm. He then asked me where it came from, I said Toys "R" Us, maybe he got one. When you press the droids belly, he would light up and make R2 sounds.

    This happened at the release for Galore, Virgin Mega Store. I did give the band gifts, all thier favorite alcoholic drinks. I think this secured my spot for the secret show in Hollywood the next night. #'s 5 and 6 of my close encounters with The Cure out of 10.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes, I'm betting there's a good chance we'll hear Forever in Sydney. : )

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am surprised that Robert hasn't thought of this already, but is clear he should really come and play Reflections in my back yard, its very park light and he could do one of his adorable squints and pretend he was somewhere exotic.....Ill have plenty of lager and he can spend the night signing every thing i have of theres....oh

    ReplyDelete
  36. does anyone think the star wars reference might be a subtle link to the fact that reflections and star wars are from the same era?

    ReplyDelete
  37. The talk of 'flux'. Is that still a reference to the current line-up (or lack thereof)?

    Fuck flux

    ReplyDelete
  38. No Ange, Robert is just a hudge Star Wars fan.

    If you look at the deleted scenes of episode 2 attack of the clones, the Bloodflowers line up of The Cure play the band in the night club where Obi Wan, and Aniken chase the bounty hunter. The scene was cut shorter because the band did not fit in with the story. you cant tell its them except for Robert, the rest of the band had alien type make up.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Just kidding, it was back street boys, they played Jedi in the battle scene, per George Lucas'es daughter... and they were cut out, it was too silly.

    ReplyDelete
  40. 'The flux is strong with this one'

    ReplyDelete
  41. "BUT THEN LAST MONTH I THOUGHT BESTIVAL WAS GOING TO BE THE FIRST CURE SHOW OF THE YEAR!!!" he does not say was going to be the only cure show...if first, there is a second and a third? no? I still hope for a autumn tour in middle/central europe!

    ReplyDelete
  42. What about dropping by Japan on the way to England, Robert?
    Many Japanese fans want to see the "Reflectons" show but can't make it. My friends I are just a few lucky ones.
    We are eagerly waiting for your shows.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh Robert, I love you! :)

    European tour...? Please please please please please...

    ReplyDelete
  44. This weeks Dr Who is easily the best of the series in my opinion. I also think its one of the best single episodes ever.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm not at all surprised, Andrew. Gaiman is such a brilliant writer. Can't wait to watch it. Just hope my hotel connection is fast enough for downloading. : )

    ReplyDelete
  46. IN lieu of an entire tour... How about a few Reflections shows in cool locations... Red Rocks anyone???

    ReplyDelete
  47. Craig, FYI, perry is happily married now (roger and jason were at the wedding), and is raising horses (his wife actually won the wolverhampton race.

    Perry is very content these days and workign on new music witht he drummer from placebo...more news to come once he tells me.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yeah, I know, Birdmad. Still miss him, though. But so glad that he's happy these days. Such an incredibly nice guy.

    ReplyDelete
  49. jimhb: Red Rocks is a must!!!

    Andrew: Got it download, will watch a bit later.

    ReplyDelete
  50. yeah perry has been a great friend to me throught the years..he said me might go to bestival....i know his wife is as she has never seen the cure live...he said he might go not sure yet...he'd probably rather be fishing ha!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I just hope they show the carnage visors movie and play splintered in her head !!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I just hope they play the Carnage visors Movie at break from 17 Seconds. I also hope they play descent and Splintered in her head !! Splintered is one of the best cure songs ever. Too cool to be ingnored for over 20 years !!

    ReplyDelete
  53. My my this here Anakin guy
    Maybe Vader someday later
    Now he's just a small fry
    He left his home
    And kissed his mommy goodbye
    Sayin'
    "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
    "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

  54. Swifty, that was brilliant. My friend wrote a hai-ku in my year book that said:

    Lightsaber battle
    Obi Wan vs. Darth Mal
    Chop him in half bitch

    Best signature ever

  57. Before Han was frozen in carbonite, Lea said "I love you", Han replied "I know"

    In 89 at Dodger stadium I said to Robert "I love you", Robert said "I know"

    I lone this memory. But not till this morning I connected it to Star Wars.

  59. The flux, per twitter from Roger O'Donnell, is a reference to Back to the Future's flux capacitor. It means we are going back to the future on 5/31 & 6/1.

    I was listening to Three Imaginary Boys last night, and I can't believe the are going to perform the following songs in a row: "Another Day, Object, Subway Song, Foxy Lady, Meat Hook, and So What."

    It's going to be incredible. Honestly, I don't know how they are going to pull this off. Has Robert ever sung "So What?" and "Doubt" in the last 25 years?

    ReplyDelete
  60. the real question is: will he discard the shecters for this show??

    ReplyDelete
  61. What did you think of The Doctors Wife Craig?

    ReplyDelete
  62. agreed with mike, "so what" live is going to be a bizarre experience to say the least... wouldn't it be nice to get a fast and furious sonic assault in the first set? to be seen...

    ReplyDelete
  63. if they did 'play with me' i would die. i. would. just. DIE.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think you're fairly safe there Sofia...

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Craig, loved the new DW episode. I thought it was much better than the last one, it was creepy and hilarious and just very Doctory and I loved it a lot :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Dear Robert,

    Please clic on 'forgot your password?' when needed (more often , that is) and go!

    ReplyDelete
  67. You said it, Craig! Geek on, Robert!!!

  68. Hey guys. I'm flying home from Chicago this afternoon and will get caught up on everything later tonight. I don't expect to have any more ticket offers today, but a possible charity auction for a June 1st ticket. Not sure when that will start, but not before 9pm central US time.

    Have had a great time in Chicago, despite the awful weather, and loved the Elvis Costello show last night. More fun than I think I've ever had at a concert.

    But now it's time to get home and get focused on Reflections again. : )

    ReplyDelete
  69. craig, i saw your uploads on the youtube page. looks like it was a great night! i wonder if he ever plays anything from 'brutal youth'?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Sofia: Yes he does! He played Rocking Horse Road last night, and Clown Strike at the show before mine. He also plays Pony St., Sulky Girl, You Tripped At Every Step, and Kinder Murder, semi-regularly.

    ReplyDelete
  71. What happened to Entreat Plus on vinyl through Rhino? I checked tonight and the website shows it, but it goes to empty page....I am starting to believe this release ain't happening....

    ReplyDelete
  72. and we can forget about Paris 2008 on dvd I guess...

    ReplyDelete
  73. Mike: I updated the post about that date from Rhino, a couple of weeks ago. As you see, they've removed any mention of it again. So we go back to it being canceled or indefinitely delayed once again. No one at WEA or Rhino seems to have a straight answer about it.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Fabien: From what I remember, someone said the company that held the rights to Paris 08, put it out there for anyone interested in it, but never found a company to buy it and produce it.

    ReplyDelete
  75. There's a great interview with Steven Pavolvic on how he got to set the Reflections shows up with Robert - worth clicking!

    ReplyDelete
  76. hacking the thread.
    ugh...i LOVE kinder murder! i've always felt that brutal youth was a criminally overlooked album. i'd love to see him live one day!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I guess this will be the first time "Doubt" will be played live!!! Anu other premiere? (weedy Burton!?)

    ReplyDelete
  78. i am intrested in how "so what" will be sung or updated"

    and if they do killing and arab,,,,if so plese not killing another..it takes aay fromt he whole meaning of the song just to appease the simle minded people who don't get it...

    whatever happened to fuck the, if they don't get it..

    ReplyDelete
  79. sorry for the typos...


    i am excited about "doubt"!


    and wonder if foxy lady will make it on he set list :P and who will sing it

    ReplyDelete
  80. Ha! U'ne been saying for years that I would love to hear So What? live!!!

    ReplyDelete
