  1. From Andreas:

    "Just back from London. It was great. One of the best shows I've ever seen!

    I don't know if somebody already mentioned her: While waiting for the doors (door 11) to open a smiling Alison Shaw (Cranes) passed by and said "Hello" to us."

  3. Totally agree about Reflections at RAH being one of the best Cure shows ever!!!


    Btw, if anyone has a chance of seeing The Cure again at the Royal Albert Hall (unlikely?), or any other band for that matter, I can't recommend the Choir seats enough! I didn't stay in my seat for too long and by the end of the concert I was right in front of Simon. A few feet away. Also- blown away!!!!

    Loved, loved, loved this concert!

  7. During the show, after reading the update here, I tried to see if I could spot Tim Burton in the audience somewhere (I was in a Stalls seat myself too). But quite amazingly, it turns out that amongst a crowd of Cure fans he doesn't really stand out. :)

    Which reminds me, I've been meaning to ask, which section was he sitting in anyway?

  9. Hmm okay, all the way in the back then. I was in M myself, so I could only get a good view of the people in L and O.

  13. I wrote to him on his facefbook page once. I ask him if he would be interesred in making a movie about The Cure story. Craig, you're launching a petition ?

  14. Not sure what you are talking about, David, but I am not launching any petition.

  15. I was kidding. I was asking you if you'd agree to launch a petition to beg Tim to make a movie about The Cure.

  16. Hi! I had the chance also to meet Tim Burton at The Cure concert last night in NYC at the Beacon Theater. We sat in the orchestra section and Tim Burton was two rows ahead of us. He was very nice and even shook my hand. I'm huge fan of his and the chance meeting was epic.
