11:29 pm - @YeruV: The amount of people who fainted is too damn high!
(This report was sent during Wrong Number. The awfulness of it is now making people faint! End this torture, Robert! :) )

9:29 pm - @YeruV: I have a pen. A guy handed me paper. I'm noting down the main setlist and saving battery for the encores, as suggested. See you!

9:02 pm - @YeruV: If I stop tweeting, it's because the signal has been cut. They do that as a safety measure in every concert :( Some counter-terrorism, anti-kidnap crapolla. But I'm keeping record of the setlist, even if I can't send a live report. Now, the endless wait. This is my view:

8:48 pm - @YeruV: Deliverans are saying goodbye with an amazing bass line. Last song and then we wait for The Cure.

8:40 pm - @YeruV: The crowd are very happy to see Deliverans there. Things start to warm up. "Deliverans! Deliverans!," roars the crowd. And they're frikin good!

8:34 pm - @BritNoise: Deliverans in this wonderful night of The Cure in Paraguay.

8:20 pm - @YeruV: Deliverans now on stage!

7:53 pm - @YeruV: First supporting band Tribu Sónica already on stage.

7:16 pm - @Urbana_FM: Visiting the stand of Urbana, the winners of the Cure Meet & Greet.

7 pm - Photos of fans waiting for The Cure at the Jockey Club.

6:30 pm - @Tigo_Paraguay: The Jockey Club gates opened! Many fans of The Cure who were waiting early and enter.

4:53 pm - @Tigo_Paraguay: The concert will be taped today for upcoming DVD of The Cure. Expected to have 15 cameras.  

4:44 pm - Judge Fudge: "Pretty exciting: There are Cureheads everywhere; the Cure is all over on posters and all over the radio. Was behind a group from Argentina who seemed to have come all the way from BA just to see the Cure."

3:55 pm - @Urbana_FM: Until 10 pm we do the #PreviaTheCure from the Jockey Club. pic.twitter.com/PupkW3kR8n
So with The Cure starting at 9:30, maybe they'll air the first 30 minutes?

2:15 pm - @sargusperez: Desde el Jockey 

1:39 pm - Moisés: From now on Radio Urbana 106.9 live from the Jockey Club del Paraguay. They said they were soundchecking but not by the band members. Checking sound and lights...

Night 3 of the LatAm 2013 tour, and we say goodbye to Brasil, and hello to Paraguay. Which set of encores will we get tonight? Who will be the lucky recipient of Roger's magical tambourine (which is said to be autographed by the entire band)? And will they send us a photo of it? Please?

Tonight's schedule: Tribu Sónica at 7:30 pm, Deliverans at 8:30 pm, and The Cure at 9:30 pm. Check the local time in Asunción here or with the clock over there on the right.

Not sure about live reports tonight. No solid commitments as of yet, so it might be a last minute thing. If at all possible, I'll have them for you. If anyone who's going to the show would like to help us, especially with the song by song live setlist reports, please contact me. Post in the comments, email me at craigatcof(at)gmail(dot)com, or on Twitter @CraigatCoF, or use WhatsApp (email me and we can set it up). Thank you so much, and enjoy the show!

    3. Yeah, since they'll be broadcasting from there until 10 pm, maybe we can hear a little bit of it.

    1. There will be a tambourine thrown each night. Autographed by the band. Or so Roger says. You can never be sure if he's serious or just pulling your leg. :)

      Delete
    2. i can confirm he threw one in SP and that he made a veeery funny face when he saw the mess he made.

      Delete
    3. What happened? Was there a fight for it?

      Delete
    4. I can confirm that Roger threw a tambourine to the audience in the Rio de Janeiro show too, just after the band played Boys Don't Cry.

    1. Oh yeah! Now I remember. :) And this is why I need to see photographic evidence of these tambourines. Make sure he's being truthful. :)

  9. Air parts of the concert at 930? Are you crazy? You actually may have a non single sneak in there! Are you sure you don't want to wait till 11:30 and air close to me, lgtb, and wciby? There must be a mistake with that time.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I will NEVER get tired of hearing Tape/Open. So jealous of everyone at these shows. I can still remember hearing Tape for the first time live back in Sydney in 07...perfect. Love these guys for broadcasting this.

  11. the guitar sounds great as well. kinda hard to hear the keys and bass on this broadcast.

    ReplyDelete
  12. why cant they dial this jingle-guy down? he really seems attention-craving.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Anyone else's broadcast cut out just then?

    1. Wasn't it great? I really enjoyed that. Even with the bad sound and interruptions, it was so good to hear them live on this tour. YouTube is fine, but to hear them as they are playing, really fires you up. :)

      Delete
  19. Robert seems to be saving his voice a lot tonight. I wonder if it is getting wasted too soon (after 6 songs? doubt so) or if he is really saving it intentionally... in São Paulo it was perfect start to finish. And after that too...

  20. Sorry Craig, I pulled down the soundcloud link to the set. I recorded it at work and didn't listen to it before posting, the sound was terrible. :/

    1. No problem. The sound was pretty bad to begin with.

  23. Damn, lucky guys. But on the brighter side, if they had played Cold in SP I'd be still there as a puddle of tears. I had the chance to hear Strange Day in 96, though (in place of Charlotte Sometimes in Rio).

    ReplyDelete
  24. The Old Man didn't Crack with Age tonight! Robert was in rare form: Dancing on lullaby, making faces during End of the World, etc. He seemed to be having a blast up there tonight.

  25. COLD!!!! I FUCKING LOVE THE CURE!!! I'M SO HAPPY HAPPY!!! ;0)

  26. On cure-concerts the setlist includes Shake dog Shake and CHarlotte Sometimes.

    1. It's wrong. They were not played. Confirmed with Roger. There were problems with the setlist reports last night, so there was some confusion.

      Delete
    2. They don´t play Shake dog shake nor Charlotte sometimes in Asuncion
