00:42 - David: Extra time !!! Lovecats are grey and pink, and red and blue... We're the Curecats, let's go ! A guy caught on stage. Eden Gallup on the side of the stage
00:34 - David: Fight. Hard enough for the first time on this tour. Sometimes it's hard just to breathe but on such a night, we 're
screaming and fighting to keep them on stage!!!
00:33 - David: Simon smiling at the end of The Kiss. Fantastic job, all of them.
IOTWCS, oriental mood on Carhaix. Why did I think I shouldn't come ? A
small trip to India for a few hours of train. Placebo, Deftones... born
inside this song like Cranes in The Top. Thousands of bands are proud of
being Cure addicts, tonight like never before. Say it to those bastards
of Rolling Stone who never gave The Cure a cover. They should hear Mr
00:22 - David: Jason was smiling at the end of End, seemed to enjoy like ever. The Kiss !!! Robert having fun then the thunder is coming, taking our

23:57 - David: Want. Simon's taking the power, almost on his knees in front of Jason.
Robert yelling so loooonnnnnng. Reeves back like hell. Roger smashing
his keys. Pictures on the screen at the back of the stage are incredible. Robert's face 6 meters high. Wonderful job by the cameramen.
23:42 - David: FTEOTDGS, the best live version I've heard. Putting thousands of hands in the sky !
TRUST very emotional. Some people crying around me... we're so lucky to have met these guys.
23:39 - David: First mobile out of breath in a few seconds. Will try with the other(s),
my Iphone first. JLH, crowd knows words by heart of course. What a
moving night we're getting before the break.The Cure love France and
show it ! Sorry Spain and Italy, our soccer team sucks but The Cure is
IBD ! A pogo close to us, it's The Cure in Orange in Britany. France
discovered that this band existed with that song, even if die hard fans
may say they already did. But when we were 12, we would listen to Nikka
Costa and Blondie. Sorry I got to vomit, but it's true I did !
23:38 - David: Push, just perfect. Crowd singing the intro gogogo before Robert, watching us close to us ! And when starting singing, crowd totally mad and singing louder.
23:21 - David: Lullaby, strong bass line, nice keyboards. Never seen a man imitating a spider so bad, very funny. The CateCateCateCaterpillar girl ! And ou ouh ou ou with the crowd,
louder this time. But still don't know how to spell it ! I fly away from
23:11 - David: POY ! Sound is just perfect, very well balanced. 6 sting bass, the most amazing and symbolic Cure sound.
23:01 - David: Bananarmonica !! Ou ou ouh hou, how do you spell ou ou ouhou ?! English
is so far from French. Robert dancing like a puppet on stage. It's a
fucking rock version tonight, Reeves bursting it.
23:00 - David: Rythmic lines and Rob guitar so powerful on A Forest, our bodys are vibrating ! One of the favorite Cure songs for french public.
2:56 - David: A Forest so soon, fantastic. Crowd mezmerized and earger to hear it once
again and again and again and again and again and again !!!
22:54 - David: PFT ! French crowd is the best singer crowd in the world. Sorry, tonight I'm a European French bastard again.
22:50 - David: FIMIL, dancing like hell on the right day at once ! DTU, let's get happy, Cure fucking fans of the world, like we do here !
22:40 - David: Lovesong, beautiful, crowd mouths open. SWIMD, rock comes back ! 3
screens on back and sides of the stage. Really professional images. The Walk, we sing along and dance. The End Of The World, crowd singing too !! Very powerful, amazing. Mint Car, crowd fucking into it. Jason has plenty of hearts designed on his arms. Fans attack ?
20:29 - David: Big and deep stage, good sound even if I really hate Thomas Dutronc on
stage right now in his encore. We will get to reach Antoinette, Nico and
Fred. Yeah I see them 15 meters on the left and in front of us,
themselves in front of Simon. Venue already over packed. Bigger audience
than our previous dates. Heard that they sold out tonight but not
20:13 - David: Arrived at the 7th row with Kathy, Karine, Pierre, Alexis and
Christophe. Valérie and Mathieu stayed in the back. Trying to reach
Antoinette, Nico, Marcus and maybe Frédéric on the second row in front
of Robert. Venue is cool, 50,000 expected attendees for a 53,000
capacity. May sell out during the afternoon. Too small glasses of beer
but we drank many ! I noticed the two buses we'd seen getting out of
the Paleo : The Cure probably traveled with them to reach Britany.
Sunny, good vibes... lots of Cure fans, from France essentially
The final show before the month long break, and back to a longer set.
The Cure are scheduled to play from 22:05 - 00:35. In the US, that's a
start time of 4:05pm eastern, 3:05pm central, 2:05pm mountain, 1:05pm
There should be a live webcast from the show at Direct Star (not available outside of France?) and ARTE Live Web (should be available to everyone).
Update: It looks like it will only be an hour, once again. :(
Note: Updates might be sporadic at times. Nasty storms and major
flooding right now in New Orleans. :( Also, major connection troubles at
the show tonight. David is doing his best to get the info out to us.
