The Cure's setlist from April 30th, 1984


Daryl Bamonte posted this on his Facebook today, Robert's handwritten setlist for The Cure at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall on April 30th, 1984. Daryl has also been posting photos of a lot of great Depeche Mode stuff, too, so thank you, Daryl!

  1. thanks.

    Film? does that mean it's been filmed?
    And what about the other notes?

  2. I think they are notes as to which guitar to play (vox, chet) & reminders for the flute & harmonica.

  4. Don't think so. Probably meant a film was to be played for that particular song. Daryl says Revox meant the Revox B77 reel to reel tape player. Flute and harmonica are pretty self-explanatory I think. : )

  5. Yeah, and as Bananafish17 says, Vox and Chet are most likely the guitars he needed for that song.

  6. I thought that vox wasn't for voice and chet i didn't know, so thanks for explaining.

  8. Off topic, but here's one for the gamers.. Boy's Don't Cry is featured in a game called Rocksmith, which comes out September this year and allows the player to plug a real guitar into their PS3 and play the real lead and rythm compositions found in the songs..

    Other artists include: David Bowie (Rebel Rebel), Stone Temple Pilots (Between The Lines, Vasoline) and Nirvana (Breed, In Bloom)

  10. Sorry to hi-jack... but this is the most recent thread.

    'The Cure in 2D' is about to start (1425 GMT) on Sky Arts 1 in the UK. It's a two hour programme :-D

    It is repeated tomorrow (19th) at 10am.

  15. Why is it that the band hasn't played 'The Top' in nearly 28 years?

    1. @Shawn: Probably because Simon returned to the band the following year, making the subject matter of the song obsolete. But you're right, it's a shame. The Top is one of the band's most underrated gems, and I wish they'd played it live more often.

    Must have missed it in the haze after Reflections Sydney.. :p

  19. Daryl Bamonte sucks... my fond memories of 1984 were immediately tarnished by the mention of his name
