So, how do you "Top" the fantastic Monterrey show? I don't know, but hope to find out tonight. My first Cure show since Reflections NYC in 2011, so, yeah, I'm pretty excited for this one! I love not knowing what they might or might not play tonight. Love that setlist suspense. I also love that I have realistic hopes of maybe hearing 1 or more of my top 3 Cure songs (Same Deep Water As You, Cold, Charlotte Sometimes), as all 3 have been played recently, so you never know. Whatever they play, I'm going to enjoy the hell out of it!
The band are scheduled to start at 8pm, and I'm hoping, and assuming, that it will be a 3 hour set tonight. US start times are 10pm eastern, 9pm central, 8pm mountain, 7pm pacific. See the current time in El Paso here.
Hey, I don't need to ask for reporters tonight...I'll be doing them. :) At least I hope so. My plan is to update to Twitter, put a widget here to show the feed, and you can all follow along with it. If that doesn't work, or even if it does, also check for Olivier's updates at It's A Perfect Day.
