BottleRock rehearsal (05/29/14)

Songs played: Before they were let in - Lullaby, Just Like Heaven, Catch, Shake Dog Shake. After they went in - Doing the Unstuck, Freakshow, Sinking, The Baby Screams, Before Three, Close to Me, Fascination Street, A Forest.

Seems like they got to watch about 45 minutes, then met the band, took photos with them, and got autographs. Very nice!

THANK YOU! to Leslie, Kariana, and Justin for the updates & photos tonight! Really didn't think we'd get any.

And THANK YOU to Jill for sending her report and photos, too!





Photos from Kariana & Leslie. Thank you!

From jmoranabel on Instagram: "That time I saw The Cure with 12 other people. Holy shit. Thank you live105" 2 more shots here & here.

Other photos - Live 105 / Jill / j9akaneerer / Kariana's autographed Three Imaginary Boys /

Thanks to Leslie and her niece Kariana, we have reports!

8:55 PM - "I just spoke with them and they are out. They met the band and had pictures taken. They said they will post more pics from their other camera and that they will post the details on the blog."

8:12 PM - "They are playing A Forest"

8:10 PM - "They are inside now for rehersal"

7:22 PM (Pacific) - "They are there now! Waiting outside and you can hear them playing "Lullaby" inside the venue."

A long shot, but if any of you reading this are attending tonight's rehearsal, please let us know your thoughts when you get out.

While it's doubtful they'll report anything, you can listen to Live 105 here

And again, please don't post the location of the event. Thanks, and have a great time if you're going!

  8. They were great tonight. Robert cracked jokes throughout the set with us and really seemed to be enjoying himself. It was really one of the more surreal moments of my life. Id even joked that nobody ever won those contests. Ill never think that again. Kariana and I will be posting more pictures to our instagrams soon. Including our pic with the band!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!

      Man, that is a once in a lifetime experience. Congratulations on the win!

    2. I will decompress only until their set tomorrow....then it starts all over again! (Albeit in a much larger format)

      Cheers! Thanks for sharing the photos with everyone

  9. Before Three! One of my favourite from "The Cure"!Much better than THOTW!I hope for "Lost" or "The promise" too and something from Bloodflowers...

  10. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks so much for sharing these photos :) Happy they're playing "Before Three" again, I've always loved that song (a benefit of seeing them play Curiosa was getting to experience a bunch of songs they'd - I thought - never play live again).

    I was joking with my wife that if I'd won this contest, I'd pretty much have to keep in touch with the other winners, because there'd only be a handful of people in the world that you could say "Hey, remember that time we saw The Cure privately?" to. Amazing!

  11. Christian I said the same thing to Kariana last night. Its like we survived a plane crash together or something. Think itll be hard to explain to others. Haha. Matter of fact we are meeting up with one of the other winners at bottle rock this weekend.

  14. It doesn't look like they were allowed to get that close. Either way, a very cool experience.

  15. I was there! I have a bunch of shots and we talked to the hired photographer so more to come. Also have the setlist I scratched down that night- we did get close! Got to talk to Robert for a couple of minutes. Dream come true- Sorry for the teaser,off to work and promise to post tonight! ~Jill

  16. According to my friend doing the unstuck was played and robert asked for requests, then said let's play something we won't play tomorrow. So they played Sinking.

  17. Jill here--back from the teaser this morning!

    Can mirror what other lucky winners said...heard Lullaby, Just Like Heaven as well as Catch and Shake Dog Shake before getting let into the studio.

    Set list as I remember it (order might not be perfect--I did my best...I was a little beside myself)

    • Doing the Unstuck
    • Freakshow
    • Sinking
    • The Baby Screams
    • Before Three
    • Close to Me
    • Fascination Street
    • A Forest

    After checking in with their sound guy and the band, Robert asked if there was something else we wanted to hear...my only regret was that 'Underneath The Stars' was on the tip of my tongue, but I couldn't manage to say it out loud.

    Everyone was allowed to bring items to be signed, and the entire band signed everything. I was able to talk to Robert for a couple of minutes... he was very charming (shocking, I know). I wish I'd had the presence to ask about 4:14 Scream, but I was trying so hard to remain upright and not seem foolish- I remember him asking what we had to do to win this contest- and him wrinkling his nose at "enter, and get really f*ing lucky". It was SO random, but please know- 80% of the people there were huge, long time fans.

    Hit me up with any questions!

    Sorry for the quality, we were only allowed to use iPhones...

    Included photos of items I was able to get signed by the Band...Craig...thought you'd appreciate the album!

    xoxo
