Robert Interview on Nederland 3


A Pinkpop special aired Sunday on Nederland 3. It included 'Friday I'm in Love', 'Close to Me', and this interview (English) with Robert (also on YouTube). (Thanks @3voor12)

In the interview, Robert confirms Reeves is "just filling in". So not an official Cure, just a Summer guest. Which makes these Summer shows even more special. If you want to see Reeves with The Cure, this could be your only chance. Get tickets now!
No, I don't get paid for saying that or hyping up the shows. : P Just saying this probably won't last, so see this lineup while you can.

  2. Starting with Friday I'm In Love.

    I don't expect them to air anything new, but it's nice for those who missed it on TV last night.

  4. The Cure are now on Nederland 3 in HD. Firstly we gor a retrospective, the Friday I'm in Love and now Robert, in a very jolly mood, is being interviewed with a very tempting looking glass of lager.

    He's saying it's a problem choosing which songs to play as they now have a back catalogue of over 300 songs to choose from.

    Now Close to Me Live...

  6. Robert also mentioned that they have also brought back the origianl lighting technician they started with at the beginning of The Cure. After not meeting for over 20 years Roberts says it was just like picking a conversation from yesterday with him. Robert wanted to the original look of The Cure back whilst playing live.

  8. The presenter did mention that The Cure will, undoubtedly, be back on during tomorrow's highlights programme on Nederland 3 and Nederland 3 HD.

  9. It's odd really, I'm 46 and have been following The Cure since I was 17. It still get excited seeing them play live and this was an excellent performance. It's such a pity that the entire concert was not broadcast. Giving us just the 2nd half was a bit mean of the Dutch public broadcast system. Still, it's a case of the glass half empty or half full. Better half a concert than nothing at all.

  10. @craig
    I think I remember Porl saying he was just doing a tour back in 84ish and ended staying until wish, and said, "yeah...long tour, hehe".
    So you never know, with Reeves, and filling in. Whatever the case he's off to an amazing start, I'd really like to see this line up in the states sometime!
    But if its not to be, thank goodness for cof and youtube! :)

  17. I think it is important that I update this now: When I said that Reeves is an official member of The Cure, that means that he is officially playing with them for more than a couple of shows. He is on a full summer tour with them. I apologise for any confusion, and I thank Slicing Up Eyeballs for correcting my statement. Respectfully, J.V.

    1. No problem at all, Jenn. I think a lot of us were just hoping it was more than just the Summer. But we'll take what we can get. : )
