  19. dang, sucks Robert didn't hold one of the books. At least he's happy and enjoying himself.

  20. you were lucky! we waited for 5 hours after the second gig and just saw a white van leaving. we had a pizza party at 3:30am outside the stage door so it wasn't a total loss :D
    now i'm at the airport waiting for my flight back home to helsinki. what an experience this was! it was good to see you all!!

  21. I'll be crucified for this, but holy shit, he's not looking so good. Like in a terrifying to small children and local business owners sort of way.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh I think he looks just fine, rumpled as anyone at the age of 52 is allowed to!

    ReplyDelete
  23. and I know it is early days, but Craig do you know if there are any other non reflections announcements coming?

    ReplyDelete
  24. great! thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Robert has clearly lost some weight, and it's aging him a bit. That's the only thing that I see.

    ReplyDelete
  26. If I got that close to Robert the first thing out of my mouth would be, "Are we going to see a new album before 2015?"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sleepy: Haven't heard anything just yet.

  28. Simon also got a book for his birthday, that's the one that Paivi is holding. I also promised Jason that I would bring ones for him and for Porl to Bestival :D

    Still in LAX waiting for my flight home after getting back in the US from Sydney. It might take a while to completely process everything that happened this weekend, but suffice it to say that every ounce of stress, every penny spent and every effort made to get to these shows were completely and totally worth it!!

  29. Aw, so happy to hear that, Heron! What an adventure for all of you! Couldn't be happier for you. Have a safe trip home and get some rest. : )

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think RS looks great, and slim and fit .. and 52.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Heron: Would it be okay if I post a link to the photos of the book on your Flickr account?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Craig yes, you can also post a link to the book page on my site as someone mentioned wanting one. i have them set up for cost only ordering.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Personally I don't think Robert has looked so well in a long long while ...

    ReplyDelete
  34. ah yes, a great week out...funny seeing all those cof people in the flesh...from a distance...as for the cure, well...nothing i can say that hasn't been said before...the faith set was absolutely mind blowing...i sat there in silence throughout the set, too stunned to even move...and as for the waiting for the van the second night Antti,I had a feeling my beer and pizza choice was the better option..I saw an opera house van arrive pre gig with around 25 cartons of crown larger and 25 cartons of pure blond (there are types of beers to clarify)...the guy pushing the trolley said to me "they like to drink a lot". I had a feeling the band was going nowhere out of the opera house in a hurry that night!

  35. "..and porl at bestival"

    !!?? :( :( :(

    The boys came back to the hotel almost immediately after the show. This is where we saw them for a second time. We drank with some of them until 1am. It was AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you, Heron. Will get that posted in just a bit.

    April: What an incredible event for you guys! So happy for all of you!

  39. I'm not exactly sure what that means, Chris, but okay. : )

    Did you have a good time? Or is that the understatement of the year? : )

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh you lucky ducks... must have been an amzing show. I'm looking forward to a DVD someday

    ReplyDelete
  41. wonder if it will be a holiday release or come through sooner??

    ReplyDelete
  42. I was very happy to get to meet Lol and Roger and give them their books. I honestly thought that I'd never get the chance to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  43. well i got my chance to meet them at sydney airport! they were actually on the same flight as me! i first talked to roger and then briefly with robert. i also quickly spoke with them in bangkok. what an ending to the trip of a lifetime!

    ReplyDelete
  44. on ya Antti...I was drunk in the domestic terminal watching their flight take off from the international, but on the other side of the tarmac......ah ah...foiled yet again!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Congrats to all of you who were able to meet the band! What a treat.

    Porl at Bestival!? AWESOME if true.

    Is Robert sporting porkchops?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Robert looks great there JC! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. He does look well i think.. And i look like hell!!! ;) They were all very pleasant..i thought twice about asking Robert for a photo( the context: 7am after a 21 hour flight/ i'd be cranky) but he was ever so nice!!!..

    ReplyDelete
  48. did robert had a haircut after the show? his hair looks way shorter and less.

    ReplyDelete
  49. walter and ricardo, I love your photo, the three of you look like brothers... so sweet :)

    coco (from sweden, row P)

    ReplyDelete
  50. @carlos...Robert is the one on the left :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Robert needs to get that hair back under control tho' someone please back me up on this...LOL its just a mess but not in the way he originally meant it to be..... LMFAO!!!! STILL LOVE YA BOB!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. mehrlicht craig put it nicely but i'm not going to ..quit being an asshole! Robert is older look in the mirror...we all are and I would say he has lost weight,,, he looked much heavier in more recent tours...at some point the ageing process helps in weight loss in a more natural way..keep drinking and eat whatever you want Robert because you are still brilliant and we love you dearly....oh yeah but the hair....yikes! MUCH LOVE THO'

    ReplyDelete
  53. It was not necessary

    I'm not blind and I have eyes (do you want me to upload of my fat ass too?)
    It's a pitty but is't true. Our idol is old. He has been fatter the last decade but in this picture you can see a lot of grey beard...

    I hope we all can still joke about the people we follow...

    ReplyDelete
  54. I actually think Robert's hair looks much better in his picture with JC than it does when he was onstage.

    ReplyDelete
  55. haha. you people are such cunts. it's about the music. or did you forget?

    ReplyDelete
  56. (not all of you. just the obvious ones.)

    ReplyDelete
  57. As much i don't want to get dragged into talking about hair(or lack thereof for me),or anything else beside the music, i'd like to say he really looks very well..im 44 and have as much grey beard as he does..sadly some people are stuck in the WCIBY or Catch video..

  58. Kelly's photo: "beauty and the.... best"

  59. maria find me on facebook if you can! i wanna be friends!:)

  60. Robert looks fabulous.
    More importantly the band produced a magical show.
    I'm still in shock.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Wow I'm a tad bit envious but very happy that quite a few COF fans got to meet up with the band at the shows, hotels & the airport. Must have been so cool to not only see the shows but have a chat & take a photo with the band!

    Robert, Simon, Lol, Roger & Jason look Great! And very Happy too! An all-round great experience! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Robert's starting to look like Neil Young

    ReplyDelete
  63. Beauty and the best.... hmmm, the best yes! me beauty?? not so sure... but thank you.. Our photo is on my desk top.. every time I see it my heart stops... so for the record, Robert's skin is amazing.. I would know.. its my profession.. Im a skin practitioner and he has flawless skin.. I think he might of had some some amazing radio frequency facials that stimulate collagen..
    If Im wrong wich I probly am, its just great jeans and wonderfull UK weather followed with allot of sleep and keeping out of the sun... I think the later part is more Roberts speed... Which ever the case he is still the most attractive man I have ever seen and continues to get better as the years pass.. and His hair is great... it wouldnt be the same with out it.. I love it! PLEASE stop bagging! I wouldnt want to see it shaved.. Porl can pull that off... Rob is perfect the way he is..
