For the 3rd night in a row, the wonderful, brilliant, hilarious, and always so helpful JC/Perfect.Murder will be providing the live setlist reports. Can't thank him enough!
I'm also looking for backup tonight, in case of bad connection, battery issues, etc, so if you can help, I'd really appreciate it. Email me at craigatcof (at) gmail (dot) com or @CraigatCoF on Twitter. Thanks!
At this point you pretty much know what you'll be hearing tonight (or do you?), so no worries over what might be or could be, just go and enjoy every single second! These are very special shows, and if you are lucky enough to attend, you should savor every single song. Hell, just sing and dance until you can't sing and dance any more. Just have a blast! Thank you to The Cure, the crew, all of their families, and everyone else involved in giving us all such wonderful shows! A Very Merry and Happy Christmas to you all!
