Everyone into the Tardis :)ReplyDelete
I'm so annoyed. I should be there tonight but it wasn't meant to be :(
I'm looking forward to the live report. :-D
Awe. It sucks not being there!ReplyDelete
Alright, here we go!ReplyDelete
*Knocks the TARDIS off the cliff and into the sea*ReplyDelete
He said "journey through time". A stop off at the future wouldn't go a miss ;)ReplyDelete
nice bracelet on whoever is wearing the o2 wristband lolReplyDelete
Woo! Enjoy bb's!ReplyDelete
I hope we´ll have a great show.
Enjoy the show CURE-COF Friends.
I´m so sorry and i feel too much sadness for...
But, i have to think the thing´s over.
Life is going on.
I must fight this SICKNESS, FIND A CURE...
I can´t follow the concert´s live updates.
Until i get home @ night, i´ll check the whole thing.
Have a great time everyone.
A L X : SWIMMING THE SAME DEEP WATER AS YOU.. IS HARD...VERY HARD.
Wish I was there...can't wait for the updates!!!ReplyDelete
ROCK THE RAIL GIRLS!ReplyDelete
Wonder what song will be first???ReplyDelete
Where the TARDIS when you need it???ReplyDelete
Enjoy the show tonight COF Peeps!
Can't wait to read all of the reports later tonight!
FF are ayceReplyDelete
And Sophie Aldred is Ace.ReplyDelete
*waves to Craig*ReplyDelete
no way! i knew it! 02:09 Dream.ReplyDelete
Craig! that means there's gonna be a show in April 2013!
someone tell Oliver to let me know if they play "No You Girls", please?ReplyDelete
no you girls never know, no you girls never know, no you girls never know, how you make the boy feel.
Let's hope this isn't their last stop at the 02 in 09.ReplyDelete
Also don't forget. 9pm on NME TV tonight there is a Cure 1 hour special.
Yeah but Andy come on, two months of that calander are useless now, signed or not.ReplyDelete
i would have any useless material as long as it is Cure signed. :DReplyDelete
8:51:17 PM , can't wait for 9:30 PMReplyDelete
Andy: I'm asking Olivier about No You Girls right now. : )ReplyDelete
Andy: Olivier - "I might have missed it (I don't know much about FF, actually, although they're quite good tonight), sorry Andy!"ReplyDelete
it's fine, yeah they are good.ReplyDelete
i got to see them at Amoeba Records for free last month. excellent.
someone should take a picture of that new shirt. or buy me one. whichever is fine.ReplyDelete
I got really pissed off this morning. I was watching a music show called Freshly Squeezed at 7am on C4 and they were doing a re-cap of the NME awards by showing classic videos of the winners. I watched the entire show waiting for the God Like genius bit and guess what? The idiot hosts played that awful Lady Soverign close to me cover. YukReplyDelete
Oh the reports sound so good so far. I love FF & that's a great song to open their set with!ReplyDelete
And damn someone please take a picture of the 20:09 shirt. I'd would love to see it!!!
andy---I feel kind of ripped off by the calendar thing too! For the price we paid, it should have be signed!
cure_kitty - and the packaging was horrible too. :(ReplyDelete
I meant to say "should have been signed!"ReplyDelete
My spelling is just atrocious!
I really love my calander. It arrived on Christmas Eve :)ReplyDelete
Andy--it sure was! It was on my front porch for 3 days in a plain, beat-up looking package. I thought it was a piece of cardboard junk that blew up on my porch by the wind and I was too lazy to look at it.ReplyDelete
Luckily it was ok but the next day it snowed & it would have been a mess.
my calendar came in kind of bent and some of the metal rings on the top were bent making it hard to change the monthReplyDelete
Was I the only one who lucked out on the Calander? Mine was in great condition when I got it. Then again it didn't go through air mail.ReplyDelete
Olivier took a photo of the shirt and will send it later.ReplyDelete
andy---Mine was in good condition despite having it sit outside in the cold for 3 days & being airmailed to Philly which is a hazard to fragile stuff.ReplyDelete
thank you Oliver!ReplyDelete
you coulda still bought it for me though. ;) kidding.
Yey oliver for the picture! Can't wait to see it! Thanks Craig for the update too!ReplyDelete
12 min left!ReplyDelete
It's going to be hard to buy one of those shirts online now that Trinity Street is bust...ReplyDelete
Well Trinity Steets loss is eBay's gain :)
Yey it's getting close to cure time!ReplyDelete
Andrew - i doubt Trinity Street has anything to do with the merch, just the tix for the event.ReplyDelete
i mean 3ReplyDelete
Andy: Trinity ran the online Cure Store, too.ReplyDelete
I just saw an advert for the NME magazine featuring The Cure covers CD. The ad is Narrated by Robert XDReplyDelete
*rushes to put kettle on before showtime*
Predicting UTS as opener. Probably be wrong now I've said that though =/
and what the bloody hell? Nirvana for Cure fans?
i'm hoping for Open, or maybe a Dark Album track.ReplyDelete
I'm dying in suspense at what's 1st!!!ReplyDelete
so who is the "gang" on the rail?ReplyDelete
Odd for a trip through time opener, isn't it?ReplyDelete
Love it!!! :)ReplyDelete
i bet uts opens....unless since its a time travel thing and they start from the beg. maybe Three imaginary boys...that would be a surprise!ReplyDelete
a funny opener would be the weedy burton haha never happening
ahhh uts! <3ReplyDelete
V: The TARDIS is going backwards through time...maybe? : )ReplyDelete
I'm still wishing they would do an all B sides show. That would be so cool!ReplyDelete
Craig: Ah, perhaps you are right.ReplyDelete
So glad that Jo gets to hear UTS live.ReplyDelete
So then It's Over to end?ReplyDelete
cure kitty that would rock! maybe i would finally get to hear "Hey You!!!!" live!ReplyDelete
Deep Green Sea. Guess the TARDIS is acting up tonight, going where it wants to, not where Dr. Smith wants it to. : )ReplyDelete
i say they end with "so what"! :P LOLReplyDelete
*Listens to FTEOTDGS live in Hamburg 11/9/02*ReplyDelete
Now I feel like Jo! Hah!
But what a great pairing of songs!ReplyDelete
Agreed sara! That's why I would love an all B side show.ReplyDelete
Fear of Ghosts please!
It's a Lost type of time travel! All over the place! Maybe the island making the song choices!ReplyDelete
Wow FTEOTDGS really DOES surprise me.ReplyDelete
My jealousy is growing and growing right now XD
I say this every damn time we have a live show but PLAY BURN! Just once.ReplyDelete
I hope Ben doesn't try to kill Robert! : )ReplyDelete
I'd like to hear Burn too!!!ReplyDelete
sounds like a good start already.ReplyDelete
any cure tapers out there recording?
LOL CURE KITTY!!!! I wonder what theyll play next? fascination street? Lullaby? Disintegration? it could be anything!ReplyDelete
Oh god good no! Ben's so damn eveil, he would do it! That was one crazy show last night!!!ReplyDelete
i would love to see/hear The Blood on this set.ReplyDelete
Miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away from home again...ReplyDelete
Anything but Lovesong! I'm so over that song! Sorry LS lovers!ReplyDelete
The Perfect BoyReplyDelete
The Blood Rocks Live!ReplyDelete
The Perfect Boy!ReplyDelete
Oh I was right, it's the Island controlling the set-list tonight!
Robert (before The Perfect Boy): "We're going to play a few songs that we didn't play last year. Quite a few."ReplyDelete
Someone needs to tell RS how to drive the TARDIS. Is there a Doctor (preferably Tom Baker) in the house?ReplyDelete
Oh man that sounds too good to be true.ReplyDelete
Any guesses on what they are going to play?
V: You know there's no one who can really "drive" the TARDIS! Not even your Perfect Boy Tom Baker. : PReplyDelete
I think Cut Here deserves a comeback.ReplyDelete
probably new stuff like Hungry Ghost, Reasons Why, or Real Snow White.ReplyDelete
all with their respective "The".
those they didn't play last year (4Tour)
Do you think they will play anything from the dark album?ReplyDelete
End of the worldReplyDelete
I'm gonna predict Pictures Of You next.ReplyDelete
Stab in the dark n all =/
oh yes! Cut Here! (excited if they do play it)ReplyDelete
I hope they play some of the Dark Album but if they do anything I would put my money on A Boy I Never Knew.ReplyDelete
Hmm, apparently RS doesn't remember which songs he played last year! ;)ReplyDelete
Cut here would be great!ReplyDelete
RS is 49. I'm 46 and don't remember what I ate this morning.ReplyDelete
Quick, someone check to see if Robert's nose is bleeding! CK will get that one. : )ReplyDelete
Andrew are you from the U.K?ReplyDelete
Sleep When I'm DeadReplyDelete
Yeah I'm from the UK and yes I should be there...ReplyDelete
Sorry but I hate that song!ReplyDelete
RS is such a tease!ReplyDelete
I'm not and I should be too! Come on over to Vegas!ReplyDelete
V: I'm pretty sure he means songs they didn't play at the London show last year. Remember, they didn't get many of the many of the 4:13 songs that the US did.ReplyDelete
Rose If I could afford it I'll be right there with you guys in the Pit.ReplyDelete
Many of the many? : PReplyDelete
Craig: I am just being silly. Sorry.ReplyDelete
I can't afford it! I am trying to hatch a scheme to go!! Why couldn't we be rich instead of so good looking!!ReplyDelete
V: Never apologize for being silly. ; )ReplyDelete
Odd and wonderful setlist tonight. : )
Awwwww. I am sitting on the edge of my seat!ReplyDelete
Does anyone know if Robert is wearing his furry balls on his hoodie?ReplyDelete
woah a forest? weird that they play it so soon...ReplyDelete
One of the more interesting setlists in recent memory.ReplyDelete
Rosepetals if you do end up sacrificing your good looks for gold don’t forget to buy me a ticket.
Quick, someone check to see if Robert's nose is bleeding! CK will get that one. : )
craig---Oh I hope not, he could be dead soon!!! LOL!! That's a good one! I
Sara aren't you the one that was drinking Robert's beer?ReplyDelete
lol rosepetals you should really rephrase that! hahaha its a good thing cat isnt here to see that! ;PReplyDelete
I love it when they mix things up and get unpredictable. : )ReplyDelete
yes rosepetals that was me! :DReplyDelete
Andrew, sounds like a plan.ReplyDelete
Odd but still good! I'd rather be there than stuck at work! Actually I should be leaving soon since it's after five but I can get stop looking at the comments!ReplyDelete
Yes, thank heaven (or somewhere) for small miracles.ReplyDelete
wow this chat is moving so fast, as is their setlist.ReplyDelete
Awwwww A Forest, I am loving this so far!ReplyDelete
Dang you literally swapped spit with the Godlike genius! You must be really smart too!!ReplyDelete
Just like the 4tour days andy! They keep whizzing by! I love it!ReplyDelete
3 Imaginary Boys! Awesome!ReplyDelete
I wonder what is next! They must be having the time of thier life.ReplyDelete
TIB!!! That's a good choice!ReplyDelete
I'm scared. This setlist is so strangely orgasmic.ReplyDelete
lol rosepetals! after i drank some i passed it to clockwise cat, christinap and andythecurefan so they could have some RSX DNA as well :)ReplyDelete
then when i got it back i decided to finish it off until the security guard asked for my ID :P christinap still has the beer bottle to this day
Awww I LOVE Three Imaginary Boys <3ReplyDelete
Wait until they screw it up with Never Enough and Wrong Number.ReplyDelete
Andrew I hardly know you! Shouldn't you be doing that in the bathroom?ReplyDelete
Hopefully it's in a safe place!ReplyDelete
Awww! TIB I am in heaven right now! Or hell since I really wish I could be right there!ReplyDelete
TIB! OMG I totally guessed that as an opener! LOLReplyDelete
Andrew has just cursed the setlist!ReplyDelete
Shake Dog Shake!!!!ReplyDelete
Sara that good that you are friends because there's this thing called GERMS!! *fainting*ReplyDelete
What will be next! I can't stay for much longer, my boss wants to lock the office up! Everyone left early today!ReplyDelete
No! not Wrong Number!ReplyDelete
Shake Dog Shake!!! It get better & better!ReplyDelete
I wonder if Hooligal made her way close to the stage?ReplyDelete
Stale and selfish as a sick dog, spurning sex like an animal of god.ReplyDelete
(I've always loved that alliteration.)
lol rosepetals! hahahaReplyDelete
OMG @ SHAKE DOG SHAKE! WOAH
i can taste a mango in the back of my mouth.ReplyDelete
i mean, the after taste of anger in the back of my mouth.
AWWWWWW!!!!!!! This is an awesome setlist! ARGHHHHHHH that I am not right there!ReplyDelete
Why did Robert's bodyguard shave his head? It makes him look even more constipated!ReplyDelete
Wow, getting whiplash from the era-jumping. Awesome. (loving the Lost references by the way! LOL)ReplyDelete
aw damn i gotta go by work then i have school :( *sigh*ReplyDelete
It's really tripping through time that set-list!ReplyDelete
When they played Killing an Arab last. Did they change it to Killing another?ReplyDelete
V: Don't give out my secrets like that! : PReplyDelete
Lol... Sara try not to get detention today for drinking beer from strange men!ReplyDelete
Yeah they now do Killing Another no more Killing an ArabReplyDelete
rosepetals-they did at troubadorReplyDelete
i got the setlist :P and it even says killing another. also i have the audio and im pretty sure he says another
"When they played Killing an Arab last. Did they change it to Killing another?"ReplyDelete
They did in London last year, yes.
Wondering if they just did that over here.ReplyDelete
Ok I've really got to go now! I need to get home to start supper & feed my cat and my boss is locking up!ReplyDelete
It's been fun! I'll be back later to catch up on all the cool news!
lol rosepetals i would hope that college wouldnt give out detention! :PReplyDelete
Maybe Someday! Bloodflowers era is not forgotten!ReplyDelete
i know on the setlist it said ANOTHER, but i think at Troubadour he said an ARABReplyDelete
Thanks! You Cof people are so attentive and not loony like us..er..the Cure.com people!ReplyDelete
Yes Yes Yes! So far this setlist is perfect!ReplyDelete
andy i thought it said another....ill slow it down when i get back and see if it easier to tellReplyDelete
A little Bloodflowers. Cat's nipples must be falling off right about now...ReplyDelete
And sometimes it's Kissing An Arab. : )ReplyDelete
The guys in the Cure.com forum freak me the hell out. Whats wrong with them?ReplyDelete
I thought you were as young as DJ Scribbles. Although I swear she is 40!ReplyDelete
Hey Andy, I thought he was saying Another at The Troub. I can be completely wrong though.ReplyDelete
OMG MAYBE SOMEDAY!!!ReplyDelete
dang. i guess i'm wrong then.ReplyDelete
Tell me somedays come again...ReplyDelete
Rosepetals - they're all over 18 for me.ReplyDelete
We post from Mental Asylums, prison etc. etc. No worries we hardly escape only once in a while!ReplyDelete
The Only One. He just had to ruin the flow. : PReplyDelete
Andy they are more mature than I am for fock's sake!!ReplyDelete
I like The Only One live but despise the studio version.ReplyDelete
Rosepetals - yeah...mature. that's what i meant.ReplyDelete
Still a good set though! But yes the flow was perfect! Now mmmmmm still great but yeah...ReplyDelete
lol deej is a 40 yr old trapped in a 16 yr olds body hahaReplyDelete
I have shoes that are older than her.ReplyDelete
Has Robert mumbled anything??ReplyDelete
Where is DJ? Still stuck behind the sofa in the Loving room?ReplyDelete
yay NBTWEEN DAYS!ReplyDelete
The set just became a lot more predictableReplyDelete
I hope he says something witty and clever and someone will be able to translate!!ReplyDelete
No reports of mumbling.ReplyDelete
I Love Inbetween Days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I bet Lovecats is next.ReplyDelete
And once again, Heron has disappeared. Olivier is providing the setlist.ReplyDelete
I think Just Like Heaven.ReplyDelete
Sara - as long as she's got that sixteen yr old body...ReplyDelete
kidding. LOL. save her for Ben.
Stig: They've got to get the pop in somewhere. : )ReplyDelete
Craig - her battery might have died. she did mention it earlier.ReplyDelete
Her phone is probably dead or something.ReplyDelete
