  1. A little shocked no one has posted a comment yet, at least as far as I can see. That might change once the site is updated. This was a "f---ing extraordinary" setlist! My eyes widened when I glanced through the list....it's chock full of goodies spanning a wide range of albums. IMHO one of the best on this leg. Some will likely disagree...to each their own? RS and co. are showering the fans with all kinds of treats...perhaps an early Halloween present? Can't wait to see what other tricks the band has up its sleeve. Someone on the Twitter feed mentioned that there were 2 new songs composed by RS, one of which was the "F---ing Extraordinary" one. I wonder what happened to the other one? Could it be that RS may have been a bit tipsy or maybe it was just the unbearable heat? Or both? It certainly seemed out of character. He's generally a bit more reserved. I enjoyed every second of the new song debut. Did anyone notice the heat seemed to wreak havoc on RS's hair? It seemed a bit more "flat" than usual. There was also talk about improvised lyrics. It would be interesting to find out which lyrics were changed.

    1. I made a very good decision to attend both Vienna and Budapest shows. So many diffs..(incl. Robert himself:)

  3. The Budapest show looks like a pretty standard Europe show this time around, but that's on paper. Live is a different story. If I had been there and either liked or disliked each song as it came up, I would have disliked just 4 songs. Sleep When I'm Dead, Give Me It, Wrong Number and Lovecats. No Walk or Go To Bed. How long since THAT'S happened?

  5. Piggywiggie I agree. I went to see 3 shows (Prague, Vienna and Budapest) in the past few days. IMO the shows in Vienna and Budapest were probably the best shows out of the three I attended. Although there were lots of critics about the venue in Vienna I very much preferred Marx Halle compared to traditional stadiums. The atmosphere and the crowd's reaction to the songs were fantastic in both cities. I still can not decide about the set lists though..Charlotte Sometimes, Sinking and Disntegration were the real highlights to me in Vienna. But probably the Budapest set was my favorite one. Kyoto Song and the 17sec encore were both a great surprise to me. Even despite the fact that the same encore had been played in 2002 (with a minor change) and 2005 in Hungary. Both new songs (no not the f.... awesome song in Vienna:) sounded amazing live. I was not very sure about Step into the Light but once I heard it live in Prague I found myself crooning it the next day:) I also think that the songs from the last two albums had way more dynamics than ever before. Robert's voice was also brilliant at all 3 concerts. I still can not understand how he is doing it..Actually I have lost my voice halfway from Vienna to Budapest so if someone founds it please return it to me...I will need it on Monday:) One is for sure Robert never joked that much..at least not at those 4 concerts I had attended in the past. All to say visiting those three shows was a fantastic experience and I am already longing for my next Cure concert.

  6. 'Step Into the Light' has really grown on me. It may not have the sheer majesty or visceral effect of 'It Can Never Be the Same' but the lyrics (what I know of them) are intelligent and deep. It bears the mark of a brilliant song in that it stays in your head, heart, and soul long after the aural experience concludes.
