Thanks to Marie for the setlist reports.

Dasding will have a live webcast tonight, but as of now, The Cure are not listed on their schedule. I asked them about it on Twitter, here's the reply: "Unfortunately we didn't get the permission so far. Check "
Update: Yes! The Cure have given permission! Live webcast tonight! Only 66 minutes of it, but better than nothing. Thank you, Robert! "Some good news for you. We WILL be broadcasting The Cure tonight! "

  1. Will be interesting to see what the show brings tonight! How about a shake dog shake start and the top end to the main set?!?! ;-)

  2. It's the "standard-excuse" of DASDING! to say they have no permission by the band. In fact, I think they haven't even asked! They will show the concert of "Broilers" instead... DASDING! is a show mainly for teenagers aged 15-18 and so they they go for what they think will work best for mainstream. Broilers are quite big in Germany at moment.

    1. That could be true, but they do need to ask for the rights to broadcast the set. Same thing happened at Pinkpop, they didn't get permission to broadcast until a couple of hours before the show.

      Maybe if they do ask and get permission, they will at least show some highlights later, if they don't show it live.

      Probably wishful thinking on my part, but I really want to see the band live again. :)

  3. Let's hope they start with 'Lost', 'SDS' and ' The Scream' in the middle, end the main set with 'TT' and a little encore with 'Jupiter Crash' and 'Bare'.
    It sucks they can't play longer in Germany gigs.

  4. I agree that they have some many songs and they always stick playing the same...I'm happy that they are trying some different songs like JUST ONE KISS, Bananafishbones, The top,Fight and Mint car...I wish they could open with The Baby Screams, Lost, Out of this World, Underneeth the Stars

  5. And that they say "Best Of" additonaly with Florence & The Machine (Damn I missed that!) (But not with examply The Cure) means they braodcast the whole thing!?

    1. They only have permission to broadcast the first 66 minutes, then they have to cut it off.

    2. ok I was quite sure this party-student-hipster-club won't show anything of bands not played at least 500 times per day at the radio, so I'm glad anyway

  13. Reeves is good on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Here is hoping for "YOU YOU YOU"

    ReplyDelete
  15. I haven't seen him do "you you you" for a long time now.

    ReplyDelete
  16. FTEOTDGS guitar leads seem much for fluid than the first show.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Seemed like they didn't really get untracked until Lovesong, but now they are firing on all cylanders... Reeves... WOW!

  22. Was that an abbreviated version of IOTWCS?

  23. Wonder what was so funny... :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lyrics at beginning of cat...?

    ReplyDelete
  25. The beginning musically was great... lyrically sounded like the studio demo, I only think this because I just listened to it earlier this week.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I hope someone fucks up and forgets to throw the switch.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Also The Walk sounds terrible...what are they doing?

    ReplyDelete
  28. 70 minutes... Glad to get this.

  29. Another Wodka Jus. Robert's getting drunk.

    ReplyDelete
  30. haven't we passed 66 minutes?

    ReplyDelete
  31. See you at the next webcast.

    ReplyDelete
  32. At least they waited until a natural endpoint

    ReplyDelete
  33. stunning caterpillar & bananafishbones on broadcast! A sign from god!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. So I guess they're going for the 10-ish minutes of short songs encore this time.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Only 3 Disintegration songs!

    Wonder if that's a record?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We've had lots of 'D' songs since it came out. 3 is enough but they could play 'Untitled' or 'Closedown' instead of 'Lullaby' and 'POY'.

      Delete
    2. Only played 3 at Hultsfred, too.

      Delete
    3. Disintegration has such lovely songs like Homesick and Last Dance...songs you never hear live but they are my 2 favorite songs on the album. Maybe they are difficult to play?

      On Wish you have Apart...another great song (the best on Wish) and again never played live.

      It is so cool they finally do some very rare songs live like The top Bananafishbones and Just one Kiss...so great !!!

      Delete
  36. Good set list, with more 'summer 2012 surprises' but replace "IBD' by 'Maybe someday', 'Open' by 'Out of this world', 'End' by 'The Screan', 'Play for today' by '(IDKWG) On', 'The Walk' by 'Numb' and you remember yourself, Robert, and the whole world that the last 4 albums are wonderful.

    1. Wow, you REALLY have a good taste! (Except of The Scream Which schould Be Babyby Raggedy Doggy Book aka Its Over!)

      Delete
    2. Honey, it's not me who have a good taste. It's The Cure who have dozens of good songs but forgot they do ;)

      Delete
    3. Well, It's just I never heard of anyone before who cares so much for the WMS to 4:13 era (especially I never heards of anybody who likes IDKWG On)

      now someone came write that since boris left everthig's crap :)

    4. Read my book and you'll understand. A song is not better because it's old. It's just because you felt in love on it at 15, 20 years ago.
      Charlotte Sometimes will keep a special place in my heart but it can't blind me to recognize that the guys keep writting fantastic music, high above of the vast majority of what's being released.

      Delete
    5. Your book (in german translation) is SOMEWHERE and I'm pretty much desperate searching for it for reading it again. But since I moved it's SOMEHOW lost (just like my Housten 2008 setlist...) I could cry for that :(

      Delete
  37. Good set list but once again the last fantastic 4 are under represented. Makes me sad.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Several shows in and my conclusion is Reeves is being massively underused. I think he's constraining himself too much. He's there to help out, but being musically stiff as a board isn't helping anything. Cut loose a bit man! Turn the effects on! Put the distortion up! And plug your guitar in dude! Seriously, was he on a toilet break during High and POY?

  39. i agree with that!!crimson@

  40. How to download the mp3s without DIME ? :-s

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't have a DIME account either?

    ReplyDelete
  42. please can some kind soul put the audio somewhere other than Dime :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sorry, hg, had to delete your post. The link you posted was for an MP3 version and the recorder specifically asked that it not be converted: "Do not encode into MP3 or any other lossy format!"

    I don't know why it's so hard for some to respect the wishes of others. :(

    ReplyDelete
  44. Sorry Craig. I didn't knew about that. I just wanted to help those who were complaining about Dime.
