  1. What a fun set list with a nice balance of hits, deep cuts, and one of the newbies! I hope fans at the next shows get to experience shows like this.

    I also hope they at least release the two new songs as studio versions. I really like both It Can Never Be The Same and Step Into The Light.

  2. I was there. It was beyond amazing!

  3. What a way to finish the first leg of my little Europe Cure tour. It was a spectacular gig- I had lowered my expectations after Stuttgart- what a fool I was!! They were amazing- sounding sharp, tight and like they were loving it! Robert was struggling at the end but seemed more frustrated than exhausted- especially based on his comments in Stuttgart about his voice.
    I asked for a seventeen second encore and my wish was granted- thanks guys, you made my trip from the UK perfect!
    Can't wait for the London gigs!
    Enjoy the rest of the tour everyone!

  4. Am I seeing things or was Wrong Number not played..... yayyy!!!!!

    1. I didn't think I was a fan of Wrong Number either, maybe it was the supporting visuals (or maybe just the alcohol!) but I was won over by the song when I saw it played live a few months back in NYC

  5. I was there too. Superb show..nice mixed up setlist. Onwards now to Leipzig

  6. Read my review of the Frankfurt concert, my first show for this tour!
