That Dec. 21st announcement...

Three things on this:

1. The Cure never said there would be an announcement today. That came from the South America media & the promoters. And as a friend said last time we went through this, never trust anything a SA promoter says. :) So if nothing happens today, blame promoter hype, not the band.

2. There might have been a misunderstanding in the media on just what was to be announced today. The Biggest Festival In The World did have a countdown clock to their big (and very underwhelming for a festival with that name) announcement, and did reveal part of their lineup today. However, their servers crashed, there was much confusion & disappointment, but so far, nothing about The Cure playing there or anywhere else in SA. But they HAVE added a 2nd day for the festival, with no bands listed as of yet.

3. Don't get all worked up or worried about this. If there's any official, confirmed news to be posted, it will be at the official site, official Facebook, or official Twitter. And I'll let you know within 5-10 minutes of that happening. Also, if nothing happens today, it doesn't mean they're not coming. No need to get upset. The world will not end. :)

  3. "never trust anything a SA promoter says." Robert learned that lesson in Argentina 1987

  7. Maybe The Cure should use their official twitter for clarify everything that journalists and news say...

    1. Not their job to correct others misinformation. Robert has been very clear on that. Unless info comes straight from the band, it's not official or confirmed.

      We all know this, but it never stops us from getting excited with every new rumor. :)

    3. Well please don't give up hope! Just because the announcement didn't come today, doesn't mean it couldn't come tomorrow, or next week or next month.

  8. Well I was told that it would be announced this week "the most", then that it would be announced today (no time given or where it would be announced though)... my lips are sealed for the rest of it...

    1. Yeah, just posted that. :)

      I think/hope that the "adjustments" had to do with them trying to figure out if they want to play North America before or after South America. :)

      Either way is good for us, Robert. :)

  11. For Diablo 3 players, one of the most attractive things for the game in recent days must be the patch 1.0.7 on PTR server. Although it is just available on PTR, you can enjoy these great changes before final Diablo 3 patch comes out. Compared with playing in PvE, playing in PvP mode really needs amounts of Diablo 3 gold as well as Diablo 3 items as you may be greatly damaged even killed with PvE items for PvP mode. Need to buy Diablo 3 gold or Diablo 3 items online? CheapDiablo will never let you down. Today I would share a post about Barbarian items stats in patch 1.0.7 PvP which is tested in PTR server!
