22 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
Anyone who complains about the bands playing here on the 29th, simply doesn't like good music. Damn, what a lineup!
The Cure, Purity Ring, Alabama Shakes, Speedy Ortiz, Bully, Leon Bridges, Savages, Frightened Rabbit, Twilight Sad, Autolux, and that's just the bands I know. Bring this lineup to Voodoo Fest!
I dig this lineup too!
I'll stick with the Vegas show. Onstage at 8pm, only 3000 people. Air conditioned, indoor venue. GA so I can get close to the stage... that's the best show out of all of them imo.
got a lot of time for 'autolux' a fine band
..and Savages. They've become quite the juggernaut live.
Frightened Rabbit are a quality live band as well...
My is all shows will be 150 minutes, 2 hour main set, 30 min encore. Look, there is no way The Cure can play 3 hour shows 3 consecutive nights in a row, etc. for months on end. Yes - they did it or close to it in 2008... but RS was 8 years younger then, lol... My prediction is a 30 song set list each night - which is still stunning when you look at bands like Duran Duran, Depeche Mode who play 18 - 20 songs and the same greatest hits every tour. My other predictions for this tour? 'The Top' focus is done and now we move to a focus on the Head/KMKMKM era...
"...we move to a focus on the Head/KMKMKM era..." - Yes please! I'm seeing 4 shows in 4 states. I'm hoping the sets change as the move across the U.S. I would have loved to have seen multiple shows at the same venue to get the full set, but I will enjoy everything I get, even if it's on repeat.
It's not the bands, it's the fact that you have to buy a pass for the whole event. If I could buy a single day ticket, I wouldn't be upset and would probably go, but $350 for one day is steep. And the next part doesn't really pertain to the cure here, but there is the proximity clause for three months. I understand headliners, but the small bands on the tiny stages irritates most of us near Seattle.
Never mind the fact that festivals are always a mess with traffic, parking, getting in and out of the venue, getting near the stage, drunks... I would never go see The Cure at a festival. With so many other options on this tour I would just travel to another city.
Completely unrelated, but it appears that tons of vinyl stores are now allowing pre-orders for yet another vinyl pressing of The Head on The Door.
