Rumor: Cure play Rock en Seine Aug. 2011

Update: Looks like we can officially mark this one as wishful thinking/dreaming.

Happy (Vegan/Vegetarian) Thanksgiving! Here's something else to be thankful for...the first rumored live date for 2011 (translated from Zegut):

"In the last week of August 2011, the Park lands of St. Cloud, I'll see on the Main Stage of the Rock en Seine, Foo Fighters, The Strokes. And then I had a vision of a crow on acid, The Cure. As usual, all such statements self-destroy in 5 seconds, and I deny having written anything."

Just a rumor, and nothing confirmed just yet, so please don't buy tickets to the show based on this. Can any of our French friends help with this? How reliable is this blog? Does it sound like this is just a wish, or saying he's leaking real info that he has?
(Thanks Calmin)

Andy Samberg as Robert Smith on SNL

(Thanks Aaron)

Click to enlarge.

On tonight's episode of Saturday Night Live (Anne Hathaway hosting), Andy Samberg played Robert Smith in the "Horse Play Soundtrack" sketch. If you recorded it and want to get right to it, it was the final sketch of the show, after the 2nd song from Florence and the Machine. And I'm sure it will be up at NBC, Hulu, or YouTube soon.
