  52. Andrey sent this review of the show:

    "Just one word GREAT!!!!! :)
    It is my 7th Cure concert, but the last time was 2005 in Berlin, so i was very happy to see them again ( and again and again and again ;) )
    It's started sunny and ended with very hard rain during last few songs. But noone gone. I think that all cure members liked the atmosphere as they smiled pretty often. (especially Roger :))
    Robert trying to speak russian is funny :))
    Sound was very good.
    T-shirts were sold out long before beginning :(
    Setlist (sorry didn't write it down, but you have one :))) ) is wonderfull. Open was really a surprise. they played mostly old songs... They played a little more then 3 hours!!!!!!
    Reeves on the guitar is great. It was my first time i hear him live.

    I recorded some videos. Try to upload it to youtube later today and send you a link.

    Now i'm thinking about going for another concert this summer. Maybe Rome... Hmmmm :)

    Greatings

    (a very happy) Andrey

    Ps: my clothes are still wet :D"

  58. The Cure at Maxidrom 158 minutes video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye2kF9af63w

  59. It was amazing. Especially that I met Mr.Smith & company after an hour after the end of the concert and festival. Robert was full of energy and ready to continue for more. Now as a memory I've got the unforgetable impressions about the 2nd visit on The Cure concert in my life, a picture with Mr.Smith and a t-shirt with signs of all The Cure's musicians.
