    1. Ahhh... Now it differs with JLH instead of Doing the Unstuck! Perfect Illusion ended. :(

  13. Little does Reeves know that with these 3 hour sets, he's slowly but surely being assimilated into the Cure! By the end of the summer there will be no other alternative but to enter the recording studio!!! :)

  14. It's still perfect if you just skip DTU

    1. LOL!! I wonder if he ordered it himself! Wouldn't that be an experience, if the counter person knew who they were serving!

    2. I think Morris is joking. In reference to Robert's McDonald's comments in that interview. : )

      I think. : )

  20. I love the new live version of Bananafishbones SO MUCH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Me too Heron! It's just awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yes, and it seems to be getting better with each show. So nice to see them rediscovering and enjoying the older near-forgotten songs.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just want it known that JC first said they were playing Pornography, nearly causing me a heart attack. Of course it was really just One Hundred Years. : )

  24. The time before the first encore is always fraught with anticipation!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Robert seems to prefer playing The Kiss with Reeves than...They're doing it much more often than in Porl era, and indeed, its staggering now.

  27. KMKMKM encore, great stuff. Let's see what's up for the second encore. They've still got 45 minutes left, more than enough for a few surprises.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's four songs from The Top so far. Maybe they'll top it off with The Top?

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is shaping up to be a long second encore.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Come on come on, leave a bit of time for a third encore, please?

    ReplyDelete
  31. My bet is on the 3rd encore being 'Boys Don't Cry'.

    ReplyDelete
  32. They'll more than likely end the show with BDC again for sure, but maybe one more song before that?

    ReplyDelete
  33. If I reflect the shows so far, this has been my favorite setlist beside Russia. Can't await next 8 days that brings us 4 times more of this.

    ReplyDelete
  34. that's an amazing setlist!!! I hope for the heineken jammin festival, just with Plainsong/Disintegration instead Open/End...

    1. I'd prefer O/E as I had P/D twice this tour ! Great set list anyway.

      Delete
    2. O/E is good to. The songs played until now that leave me indifferent are Mint Car, Sleep When I'm Dead and Let's go to Bed, but if they play The Same Deep Water As You ...

  35. this was my first cure show outside of the USA. 12th Cure show overall. a great time. I elected for front row main area rather than wait in line for the PIT. was a bit far back but the sound was great. holy shit, roger's solo on TRUST is the highlight of this tour. and my god, how lucky I feel to hear THE KISS. rocked it!

    ReplyDelete
  36. We (me & my son) just came home from the show.Happy and exhausted, discussing the setlist. It was SO good tonight, slightly better than Hultsfred. My son's number one: if only tonight. My choice: primary.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, my God. Trust. I'd LOVE to see that live. Next time in Toronto, Robert! Promise Cure fans here we'll get a more varied setlist! Please!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Muldfeld, I saw 'Trust' performed with both Roger AND Perry on keyboards at the same time in Toronto during the Dream Tour. :)

    1. Good to know. I couldn't go for that concert because I didn't live long-term in Toronto; I hope I'm that lucky!

  39. Robert watches Danish tv-series :) He said something like: "I should speak Danish...like "forbrydelsen" (The Killing) and "Broen" (The Bridge)"

    Hightligt for me was "Just One Kiss". Excellent.

  42. hmmm...looks like this will be the setlist for their upcoming Reading and Leeds festival...I hope there can be few changes... :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Great show...The band was in really good spirit, smilling through the set, and sounding really good in my opinion....From comments about Robert's voice at last week's show in France(could be Belgium, can't remember),i understand his voice wasn't as good as usual..NOT so tonight,he sang really well...Not a personal favourite, but Sleep when I'm dead,Doing the Unstuck amongst other stuck out for me, and Primary and The Walk have been given a new lease of life lately(at least to my ears) which is great...Couple of things on the Festival itself, the organisation is tip top....The train literally arrives at the Festival which is very convinient.Stewards are really helpfull and you're being provided with water throughout the waiting in line and the show....I guess the casualties the festival has suffered in the last few years means extra care is given to crowd safety and that's a good thing.You feel safe and looked after but not in an overbearing way.Finally,it was one of the nicest day of the summer weatherwise yesterday, around 20c at 10pm last night..........this morning... torrential rain in Copenhagen...not sure i'd want to go back to the Festival today :).

  44. Just woke up from a short nights sleep. My twitter did collapse, but luckily, there were others who did an excellent job with sending the setlists. The show itself was out of this world IMO. An excellent performance with great songs, many I really wished for like Trust, Just one kiss, Fight...the list goes on and on. Roskilde is a superb festival and I agree with PM that the organisation is superb, it always feels safe and enjoyable being there. Robert was seen smiling a lot more than any other concert I've been to. Overall, I memory for life!

  46. Sigh, such great setlist coming from this tour and such great stories. Makes me feel slightly bad for being jealous that they are getting all these great shows and I have to live vicariously through them while living in the states! Only slightly though and i'm crossing my finger for a US tour here sooner rather than later!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Perfect.Murder sent in that clip I've added of the Danish interview with the drunken Cure fan. Here's a translation (courtesy of P.M's girlfriend):

    "Roughly the presenter say he's found the drunkest, biggest Cure fan at Roskilde....,and asks him if he's happy with the set so far(you can hear End playing in the background)...he says yes he is, but it's a shame the band took so long to play the good songs...."
