23 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
Great find, my husband is a tremendous lighting geek and he really enjoys analyzing out the various types of lighting / effects used in the show. We've been fans of Abbey Holmes' light designs since she's been with them. It's too bad that she left the Cure. We've been looking for an article on the lighting setup that they are currently using!
Thanks, Craig and Joe. For anyone who wants to know, it begins on Page 64.
Wow. I barely understood any of that. I never thought projecting sound and visuals was so complicated. I have to say the sound seemed much better on this tour than Curiosa; on the latter my ears were overwhelmed and I couldn't enjoy the sound throughout the entire concert; maybe it's because I was farther away, but I thought the sound was great this time, though Porl's guitar was way too soft and barely audible at all. The light show was gorgeous; Pictures of You was especially effective and much prettier than on Trilogy.
Is there anything in there worth knowing about? I must admit, a magazine entitled "Lighting and Sound" is about as interesting to me as a magazine entitled "Insurance Seminar Weekly"

"Department of Motor Vehicles Today"
"Kitchen Sponge Inc."

Good one!Although now I'm craving a pickle.
yuck!!! I have to admit I don't understand the pickle.
JPX: It's too early in the morning for pickles, I'm afraid!
Cardboard Boxes International
clockwise - Cardboard Boxes International is a great companion book to Carton World
Isn't this at least the second time The Cure's setup has been mentioned in either this magazine or a similar one? I vaguely recall something popping up during the Dream Tour.
Sorry, Shawn, I can't help you with that.

Anyone here as avid a reader of Windshield Wiper Universe as I am?
I've got a life-time subscription, babe!
Honestly, Lighting & Sound actually sounds fascinating, but then that may be because I'm an audiophile.
Yes, we are NERDS! And I'm such a nerd that I have the link to the Curiosa tour lighting article. http://livedesignonline.com/mag/lighting_weve_cure/There was another one too, but I can't find it online.
i am still waiting for my CURENEWS number 23! i'm always pushing the postman!
