  7. This would be more exciting if the headline was "The Cure to play Boston October 1st". Rome? Why not just play on the moon? Sigh.

  16. See you soon hopefully, if the show is confirmed! Any cheap and nice accomodation in Roma? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. cheap accomodation in rome?
    it's almost a mission impossible.
    Try near to Termini Station..
    maybe some very cheap hotel..but at least about 35-40 Euros for person i think.

  18. You could always sleep on someone's couch:

    http://www.couchsurfing.com/

  19. marc - you freaking rock. i had no freaking idea. thats going to come in real handy in the next few years. THAAANK YOU.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Damn I always wanted to go to Italy but I know it would be impossible for me to get it all together with such short notice.

    How about South Philly Robert? It's almost like Italy in that lots of Italians live there. Lame but hey I can try. LOL!!!

    Oh well no use getting all upset over something that I know I can't go to. Besides my Credit Cards are so maxed out!

    Lucky Italian Cure Fans! Enjoy it to all who can go, I'll be happy with the TV broadcast!

  22. omg im loving this couch surfing website!!! but thats cool that the cure is playing rome! maybe they are warming up for the wishful thinking tour?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't know, the guy "Steve" on the couch website is probably not the best endorsement, he looks like an axe murderer.

    ReplyDelete

    and its on a fucking saturday. FUCK!

    ReplyDelete
  29. If I win lotto between now and then, I'll go. :-P Otherwise, hope it's shown on my local, on reg MTV (yeah, I know.. dream on!). If no luck either way, I'm sure it'll end up online for d/l, on Youtube, etc. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. True CCAT, a Cure show on the moon might be fun =)

    ReplyDelete
  31. why rome?...because mtv italy was who support the cure from the beginning, mtv italy was play all news videos, mtv italy support the idea promotional of 4 singles each month...this exclusive is for mtv italy cause was the only one who support the cure all the time...

    ReplyDelete
  32. *peeking in from work*

    Dee, if I win the lotto I'll fly both of us out there.

    I won't be making it otherwise :p I'll just wait on the Wishful Thinking Tour.

    After five successful editions, Coca-Cola Live@Mtv, the most awaited Italian music event of 2008, comes back with the live music signed by Coca-Cola and Mtv Italia.

    Coca-Cola Live@Mtv is the music project that brings the biggest Italian and International artists in Italy’s most beautiful places since 2003. Now, it returns to Rome with an exceptional free live concert, broadcasted live on Mtv Italia, that will embrace thousands people to give them the best live music and an unforgettable show with pop icons such as The Cure, John Legend and many more.

    The event will be held in Piazza San Giovanni on Saturday October 11th at 6.30 pm. The historical and suggestive square will become a huge, kaleidoscopic stage full of colors, sounds, and special effects, ready to brighten The Cure’s and other artists live performances.

  35. damn i wish i could go see this show!!! but there is NO way i can get a passport in a week! lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. broadcasted worldwide? sweet. do you think it'll be aired on October 11th or we'll have to wait for a later airing?

    btw - i've been checking up on my HDNet schedule e-mails and no word of the Charlotte show yet.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The news's that Dee posted is just utterly depressing since most of us can't make it there. Why can't we all be there? This concert should be a COF exclusive!!! And it better come on MTV too but they could do a We are only showing it in a few select countries thing.

    Wishful Thinking for the Wishful Tour! :)

  38. imagining Bob sipping a Coca Cola for an Italian tv commercial. Then a nice lovely lipstick smear ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Andy: Robert's post says a delayed Global Broadcast, so probably only live on MTV Italy, then aired elsewhere at a later date.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I just hope we don't have to wait for months before MTV decides to show it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. MTV US doesn't even show music anymore, does it?

    *crosses fingers someone uploads it to youtube or D/L onto DVD thingy like someone did for me of the FUSE thing*

    ReplyDelete
  42. i can personally assure all of you that i won't be at this show.

    ReplyDelete
  43. FUCKITY FUCK FUCK FUCK

    I can't go. I just can't muster the money. I mean, I have it, but then I can't do anything else Curey. Besides, competition will be fierce for tix.

    FUCK ME UPSIDE DOWN

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great news, pity that the concert will be held far away from here...

    I hope also, that MTV re-broadcast the show soon worldwide.

    I´m curious on:

    Why CURE gave the exclusive of this huge event to MTV, if CURE aren´t the kind of "artists" that the music video channel likes ?

    Maybe if the band had made the show by their own, a better show would everybody have.

    Isn´t a risky move that CURE shows at live the whole 4:13 Dream, before the release date ?


    No matter what, i´m very excited for this.

    Only 12 days left for the show and 29 for the cd.

    OH HELL YES!!!!!!

    :)

  45. this is a dream promo for the upcoming album!

    In the « fuck me upside down category » : i do not travel much because of the kids, but i happen to fly pretty close from Rome next october, for work (a poetry festival). And i will arrive... october 13 :(((( i can't change my tickets and i can't leave for more than 6 days and i have to be there up to october 19 :(((

    is there any chance someone could tape this and make it available for the unluncky cure fans ?

    ReplyDelete
  46. @love-the-cure

    MTV US only airs music between midnight and 4 AM. I'll probably have to DVR the broadcast. :)

    Comcast also has an HD music channel that re-airs select programming from MTV and VH1. I've got my fingers crossed that they will show this in HD.

  47. I was just in Italy two weeks ago...aaahhhhh!!
    I want to go sooooo baaadddd!

    ReplyDelete
  48. *weeps in despair*

    As one of about twelve people in the world who doesn't have MTV of any kind, I'm gonna be relying on one of you lovely people to stick the thing on Youtube I think...

    Although, the more I think about it; I'm not so sure if I wanna hear the album live before hearing it on disc.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hey Craig, do you already have a live reporter from Rome ?

    I wish you (we) had one now !!!.


    :)

    Can´t wait for the 11th October..

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm happy, for this means we will most likely get a DVD version. Maybe that double Album Limited Edition with the album live in full from Rome.

    *crosses fingers*
