So cool, yay for Rev! How close to the front of the line is she? :)ReplyDelete
V: I don't think that's the line. No lining up until noon, remember? I know everyone said they were just going to head over to the area last night, and hang out near the Troubadour.ReplyDelete
Oh, right. Sorry!ReplyDelete
they said that theyre across from it! i hope they have the printouts to get inReplyDelete
i see kel and revs hubby! looks cold tooReplyDelete
DJ: Who says they need printouts? I think Robert or MySpace would have included that in the announcement.ReplyDelete
well in past shows they needed them, to prove theyre a friend of secret shows. but if robert didnt say anything, i guess not?ReplyDelete
Yeah, I doubt you need it today. There would be some mention of it somewhere, other than the LA Weekly.ReplyDelete
Just heard from Sara B. Rev. talked to Keith Uddin, and he says you don't need a printout.ReplyDelete
Hey Andy if you read this. I am on my way right now!!!!! God I hope I get there in time.ReplyDelete
I should be there in an hour!!!ReplyDelete
Damn, The Curse really lived up to our name today. We're obligated to our show tonight but we don't even want to play. We'd rather be in "line" already!!!!ReplyDelete
Haha I love the fact that they're lingering inconspicuously, rather than "lining up"!ReplyDelete
I can't even imagine how excited those lucky, lucky peeps are!
Sara B., Chris and Cat have their wristbands for the show. : )ReplyDelete
Man, these folks are hardcore. Then again, I'd wait in line, too. Imagine if it were London or New York or Toronto, though -- how freezing it would be! Again, lucky Californians!ReplyDelete
Muldfeld, if this were happening in Toronto, then all you'd need to do is bundle up. :)ReplyDelete
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! for the COF crew to get wristbands. I'm so freakin' happy for them! What a night this'll be.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to hear about the show!! How exciting for them!ReplyDelete
Okay, someone needs to join me in the chat room, like now.ReplyDelete
I should be there! I'd be in the same car as Cat, Chris, and Sara!ReplyDelete
I am kicking myself so freakin' hard for leaving my feet on the ground and opting not to spend the money for a flight.
I talked to Cat and Kelbel this morning...they all sound so overwhelmed and excited and exhausted all at the same time. LOL!!!!!!
What I got from their convos is RSX looks adorable dancing to SWID and The Cure really did not want to stop playing last night after 3 songs.....like it was too short of a performance for them too.
LA is rainy, stormy, and kinda chilly and they've spent a ton of time in the car. It's a Cure caravan out there :)
But this is so exciting! Sorry for the fangirl post, but hell - that's what I am damnit! haha!
:) :) :) :) :) :) :)
Wow! This is amazing! So glad Cat and co got in. Can't wait to hear about the show.ReplyDelete
I am crossing my fingers for everyone!ReplyDelete
Yay! Rev H. got her wristband!!ReplyDelete
I so belonged there today...ReplyDelete
it just wasn't in the cards. Even if I hadn't canned my LA plans I was leaving this morning and I wouldn't have known about it in time it takes 8 hours to get there.
Ugh I am trying not to go to pieces about this unfortunate episode and remember to be glad that the concert gods bestow upon us these cosmic favors when they see fit and we must be grateful
Have a great time guys :) Wish I could be there but alas no ... Full report guys!!!ReplyDelete
Anyone know if Cureheart made it there and has a wristband? And KelBel? SugarGirl?ReplyDelete
Oh, and pink ego box and her niece--are they there??ReplyDelete
shaun-w, there are limits to my bundling up. My thick gloves have barely been able to shield my fingers from the freezing cold, and my face and neck and ears would still be freezing. It's awful being out for 20 minutes. Standing out for hours might be detrimental to my health. Also, I lost my scarf.ReplyDelete
Regina: Just heard from Debi, and she says they all have wristbands.ReplyDelete
Oh yay--thanks Craig!ReplyDelete
Have all the wristbands been given out?ReplyDelete
Yes, they're all gone.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I knew I would never make it there in time for one!ReplyDelete
i hope all our friends got in.ReplyDelete
so jealous right now!!!
theyre all TOGETHOR, going to see the cure, in such an intimate setting!! HOW PERFECT!!
Hey Regina! I was there at 7:00 a.m. I think everyone got their band. I feel so lucky. I'm home real quick (I live close) and heading back. They are very insistent about NOT hanging out there. They now have security outside. someone was told if they catch them there again, they will cut wristband. Maximum capacity is 300. It doesn't matter where you are, its' a GOOD place. This is a DREAM show. I was right up front at Carson and about 5 feet from Robert. I now like Carson. I want to really take this in tonight and appreciate every second.ReplyDelete
Regina and DJ - I wish you were here. I really do.ReplyDelete
Any word on any other US stops? I mean are they booking it home after this?ReplyDelete
I feel the need to fly somewhere!
aww cure heart <3ReplyDelete
cpg - oh yes they are. theyre going to norcal and then south carolina ;)
I'd even take Atlanta!
So, did the COF crew get tickets after getting wristbands?ReplyDelete
WOOHOO! I'm so excited for them! I'm sure they got a great show! I knew The Cure were going to do the rounds over there! Maybe... the next tour will come sooner than later since the boys seem to be enjoying themselves so much!! and further more,ReplyDelete
The wristbands ARE the tickets!ReplyDelete
wait has the show even started yet? Damn... I'm way too excited for someone who's not there...!ReplyDelete
"The wristbands ARE the tickets!"ReplyDelete
Oh. Usually you get wristbands with numbers on them and then a number is randomly picked to start the selling from.
Awwwwwww...*hugs Cureheart*...I wish I was there too! But getting the reports from you guys is the next best thing. :) :) I hope one of the peeps with my number'll give me a ring during the show!ReplyDelete
Are they going to have a COF sign like they did at MSG?ReplyDelete
Hey peeps! Rev here, checking in from a cafe with wireless down the street from the Troubador. We were in line at 8 am or so and to answer V's question we were the 22nd and 23rd people to come and linger "inconspicuously" on the sidewalk.ReplyDelete
We've been told that the wristband absolutely guarantees entry. Also that we are not allowed to queue for entry until 7 pm. There are reportedly going to be a "lot of celebrities" here tonight so who knows what that means in terms of the Hollywood elite. And we are keeping well clear of the wristband-snapping Troubador security.
I'm going to be uploading my pics from Carson and today on my flickr site soon, Craig, please feel free to link to or use them as you like :) I have not yet decided if I'm brave enough to try to bring my video camera in!! :o
Love to all of my peeps out there who can't be here tonight, I know we all miss you and wish you were here with us.
Does anyone know what time they said people with wristbands could come back and line up?ReplyDelete
Helsa: Doors open at 8pm, show should start by 9pm.ReplyDelete
Rose: I don't think there was enough time for a sign, but who knows what Chris will come up with. : )
Yes there will be a sign! I hope we can bring it in!ReplyDelete
Nevermind about my question. I see Rev answered it. :)ReplyDelete
I'll make one and drive it up.ReplyDelete
OMG REV!!!! *squishy hug*ReplyDelete
we're so excited for yall!! hope you get to meet them too!
Oh, Hey REV!! *hugs*ReplyDelete
I hope you can get the sign in to!!
OK - I have just caught up on the blogging.ReplyDelete
How exciting that so many of our COF peeps have managed to get wristbands.
I wish I could be there, but I guess I just have to be content to live vicariously through them all.
Elise! We missed you and I have video of everyone saying HI!ReplyDelete
awwww thanks Rev.ReplyDelete
I am soooooo excited for ya'll.
AND I love the signed t-shirt on your flickr - ESPECIALLY the Robert blooper - I think that is the coolest bit :-)
What a really great surprise ¡¡¡¡¡¡ReplyDelete
I just got aware of this secret CURE show.
I haven´t check COF since thursday.
Have a CURE-rrific time,friends will be attending there.
I miss CURE...
I need my CURE Fix NOW ¡¡¡¡
HI REV! great pics!ReplyDelete

*sends good vibes to the universe for East Coast happenings*ReplyDelete

i'll be jolly christmas II for you, elise! the stuff santa didnt think to bring you!ReplyDelete
WOOT!!! you are sooo sweet to meReplyDelete

"just like the old days"
Does no one read my show notes? : PReplyDelete
According to the front page, about midnight your time - which makes it 2pm Sunday afternoon for me.....ReplyDelete
What a lovely way to while away a weekend.
Craig - I read them - do I get a gold star?ReplyDelete
Elise: No, but you do get an All Access pass for the 30/13 Tour. But if you'd rather just take the star... : )ReplyDelete
Bugger the gold star!!!!!! I'll happily take the 30/13 All Access pass.ReplyDelete
:@ i read! but its already supposed to have started....pacific :|ReplyDelete
sorry. im in portland in my mind!

Isn't it usually Georgia on my mind????ReplyDelete
ewww I can't believe I am quoting the big Willie.
Yay! You go guys.ReplyDelete
you can pretend its the ray charles version if thats better!ReplyDelete
Sofia, much better!!!ReplyDelete
*waves at Andrew*
oh man, the excitement is killing me!ReplyDelete
*Waves* Yeah this is going to be great. *Remembers the Summer*ReplyDelete
I hear ya, DeeJieReplyDelete
*waves to elise, sofia and andrew*ReplyDelete
sofia - the google incident just popped into mind :)
Andrew, it is just like the old days *sighs* I have missed those days!ReplyDelete
Yeah the old days. Like 9 months ago...ReplyDelete
It does feel alot longer though...ReplyDelete
I go away for a few minutes, and Elise is talking about "big willies"! It really is like the old days. : PReplyDelete
Now you get the gold star, Elise. : )
And just in time to send DJ running behind the couch. : PReplyDelete
Are we even going to attempt to try and keep it clean tonight?ReplyDelete
yeah, but who is in the loving room?ReplyDelete
*sobs behind sofa*ReplyDelete
Andrew, is that what you would prefer? really??? really???ReplyDelete
Deejie, I will look after ya!!!ReplyDelete
*hides behind elise*ReplyDelete
I have a headache and I'm tired but I may step into the loving room for a while...ReplyDelete
Hey dear CURE peeps, i´m ready for another episode of "CURE Show Great Night Chat".ReplyDelete
Are you too ?
Very good memories from the last USA Tour...
dont make us tie you up to make you stay :(
*running hug to mad bob*ReplyDelete
meebo has spoiled me - I keep forgetting I have to refresh - LOLReplyDelete
*ties a string to finger to remind herself*
DJ you will have to catch me first :)ReplyDelete
*waves at MadBob*ReplyDelete
All B-sides tonight, and a few 4:13 Dreams ; ) (wink)ReplyDelete
How about a new song as a Christmas gift???ReplyDelete
I'll be excited if they do This. Here And Now. With You.ReplyDelete
Smuggle the Cof sign in your pants if you have to!! The worst they can do is frisk you and the security guy may look like Robert!!ReplyDelete
It was so great to see it at MSG!! I am so happy for the people that are there! You lucky little b@stards!!
Me too Elise! That's the one I want to hear! If they do play it, I should get call and it will be The Cure playing live on my phone line!ReplyDelete
They just have to play something from the dark album!!ReplyDelete
Yay for the COF Loves The Cure sign! Great to see it back!ReplyDelete
CPG - that is exciting when you get a call during a concert.
I am hoping they play THANWY tonight. That song has been in my head all day. :)ReplyDelete
Wow, a big smile painted on my face after seeing again the COF sign.ReplyDelete
Is it the same from MSG ?
Every single CURE fan here loves COF by the way...
Wanna start with the song's callings ?
I go foer US as opener, BRDB, closer, and Faith.
Come on RSx, let me win this round.
Yeah the sign brings a tear to my eye.ReplyDelete
cure fans are the best fans.ReplyDelete
prince fans can be super snooty and tom waits fan can be sort of aloof but most all the cure fans i have ever met have been nice, awesome people.
just thought id share.
because...i love you guys *sniffle*
V!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : )ReplyDelete
The night gets so much brighter. ; )
Craig: Hey you. :)ReplyDelete
haha dj, just saw your google incident comment.ReplyDelete
Wow - is it time for a group hug already?ReplyDelete
Madbob, I agree, I think UTS for openers too
V: No, they will not be playing that tonight. : PReplyDelete
awww the signReplyDelete
sofia - me naughty? dont confuse me with everyone else, im the minor remember? :)ReplyDelete
Craig: Yes they will. In the secret show they're playing in my head! :PReplyDelete
*V just now realizes which song Craig was referring to and says, "Duhhh"*ReplyDelete
I am very slow today. :D
*waves at her siamese twin*ReplyDelete
*V voodoo smiles back to her twin!* :)ReplyDelete
I think they might open with From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea since they played it in the sound check and it has such a nice ambient feel to open up the show.ReplyDelete
v - I had some drama in my world - in the form of a hard-drive crash -and lost your work address.ReplyDelete
Please accept this as a BIG HAPPY HOLIDAYS card!!!!!!!
V: Duh! : PReplyDelete
Elise: Aww, that's too bad about your hard drive. But thank you! Happy Holidays to you too.ReplyDelete
Mad Bob: No, this is a brand new sign. If you remember, Chris signed a bunch of our names on the old one, and gave it to one of the 65DOS guys to give to Robert.ReplyDelete
V - I was gutted about the hard-drive - thank god for iDummp.ReplyDelete
Ahh, the memories. :)ReplyDelete
COF LOVES THE CURE!!!!!ReplyDelete
Love the sign, Chris!
It's as beautyyyyyyyyful as the last one.
It is hard to believe that so much time has passed since the 4Tour.ReplyDelete
Elise....I had a disaster this week too. Somehow my entire mail box got wiped out...all the folders except for the deleted items. WTF???ReplyDelete
For opener, logic says UTS. But I'm feeling and wishing for Shake Dog Shake.ReplyDelete
CPG - that SUX!!!!!! I completely understand - all my precious emails/photos/music/memories - just gone.....ReplyDelete
shake dog shake?ReplyDelete
rather aggressive for tonight i think!
Secret show!!! Secret chat???ReplyDelete
oh you guys! a computer crash had to happen to me THREE times before i invested in an external hard drive! worth it, ladies!ReplyDelete
I agree with Sofia.ReplyDelete
Of course in my wildest dreams they would open with OOTW
I call the opener/closer from the Dark Dream. ;)ReplyDelete
(Only in my (dark) dreams...)
What's wrong with aggressive? : )ReplyDelete
UTS should be saved for tomorrow. How about Want?
Why not UTS as the opener?ReplyDelete
FANTAC, WEVE MISSED YOU SO FREAKING MUCHReplyDelete
Craig - WANT works for me!!!ReplyDelete
*running tackles FANTA-SEE*
i'll take want! although i still suspect they may play uts twice.ReplyDelete
GOD! REMEMBER THE TOUR, GUYS!? IT WAS SO GOOD OMFG WTFBBQ!!!1
Anyone who wants to chat in real time, come over to the Meebo chat room!ReplyDelete
On the 4 Tour they opened with UTS so it seems unlikely they would do that now..but who knows.ReplyDelete
this is such a lovely reunion :)ReplyDelete
Hey Fantac! Just that I know they will do that tomorrow, so why not something different for the secret show?ReplyDelete
UTS is a lovely opener...but I'll take OOTW or Open as well.ReplyDelete
Any opener........I just want to be there damnit!
Elise - your disaster sounds much, much, much worse. If I lost all my music I would keel over and die.
Sofia - yeah, Shawn keeps telling me to get an external hard drive. I'm hoping I get one under the tree.
V: Sofia is speaking your language. : PReplyDelete
Meebo sucks. : PReplyDelete
All this computer talk reminds me that I'm picking up my brand new iMac in the morning.ReplyDelete
Craig: OMG. WTF?!?! RTOFLAMAO.ReplyDelete
*V stays put.*ReplyDelete
AndrewV - YAY!!!!ReplyDelete
I love meebo - but today is about the 4tour traditions!!!!
it really is like before!:) im so excited, i bet its going to be an amazing setlist, as madbob said, UTS opener IO closer and just one or two encores. i would kill to be thereReplyDelete
andrew - macs are the work of the devilReplyDelete
HEAG: Uh, they still open with Plainsong, Open, Want, OOTW, why wouldn't they continue to open with the opener from the brand new album?ReplyDelete
I assure you, UTS will be the opener either tonight or tomorrow, possibly both.
I miss y'all too DJ! I can't stay on again tonight but I guess it'll happen sometime soon! Enjoy the show!ReplyDelete
*cries hard* bye fan!! have a good night, we miss you even more now!!ReplyDelete
But in direct contrast to the 4tour days where it was pouring with rain and cold in my world, today it is bright, sunny and 95 degrees.ReplyDelete
See ya, Fan. Hope things are getting better in your world *big hug*ReplyDelete
In my world the weather is still the same i.e very wet. Just a little colder.ReplyDelete
Again, Hi to EVERYONE ¡¡¡¡¡¡ReplyDelete
Hola Carlos......jaja ¿ porque no estamos allá ?
Andrew - LOL - you are in the UK, after all!!!!!ReplyDelete
i loooooooooove my mac *smooches it amorously*ReplyDelete
Yeah Elise it's 3:42 AM and it's very wet cold. Just like it was in July :)ReplyDelete
jaja hola jorge jaja si me encantaria estar ahi! >.<ReplyDelete
3.42am!!!! Holy crap. Lucky it isn't a school night!ReplyDelete
sofia - you has lipstick all over the screen!ReplyDelete
i have to wait until midnight for the show cof coverage:(ReplyDelete
kissing crimson, dj! youll never see me without my red #204!ReplyDelete
its absolutely tormenting to be in the same stateReplyDelete
It's on these rare occasions that I am glad I am not in the States - the timezone is much friendlier here.ReplyDelete
Currently, 12.49 Sunday afternoon.
dj, why couldnt you make it (if i can ask)?ReplyDelete
because papa was being a dumbass and said no LOOOLL. ill never forgive him for this! *angry teen door slamming*ReplyDelete
LA is my hometown too!! *pout*
but being here is the second best thing :))
yes DJ, why the hell arent you there?ReplyDelete
oh i see:( that sucks big timeReplyDelete
DeeJie - these things happen. Next year there will be bigger and better events to attend!ReplyDelete
Did Clockwise make it?ReplyDelete
Not to forget the CoF tour bus right?ReplyDelete
Craig, I hope you're right about UTS being the opener. Especially for tomorrow. And to hear It's Over would be a great ender too. I'm bummed even more now that I know what they soundchecked. I really want to hear TRSW and Bryce loves Sirensong. At least HOB has wi-fi so I can keep up with the reports. btw, we wanted to go on early and get out of here ASAP but they have us scheduled from 9:45-10:30!! :(ReplyDelete
omg i was THEE angstiest teenager EVAR. but your angst is warranted, dj. truly!ReplyDelete
oh yes, bus for sure. and elisey will be with us <3ReplyDelete
morris - of course!!
Morris, yes, Cat is there.ReplyDelete
Yep, Clockwise made it. :)ReplyDelete
aww brian. man, not the best night to play a show. :(ReplyDelete
but you stil went to carson you lucky lucky!
Sara B, Chris and Cat are in. Right in front of Porl. Poor Porl! : )ReplyDelete
VERY bad night for a show. We don't want to play at all but I have to. Kind of weird, usually these are fun nights.ReplyDelete
Rev Heron is in. Right in front of Robert.ReplyDelete
XB: That really sucks for you guys! :(ReplyDelete
Woohoo! Good for them. They better have good monitors there or else Porl won't hear anything with all that screaming.ReplyDelete
did cat ever find her nipples, btw? tonight might not be as bad for porl if so
Good job Cat wasn't in front of Simon...ReplyDelete
Sofia, Cat sewed them back on after the 4tour!!!ReplyDelete
Correction: Rev is 4 feet from Robert. Close enough. : )ReplyDelete
god id give ANYTHING to be 4 feet from robert. ANYTHING!!!!!!!! :@ReplyDelete
