More rumors from Guadalajara

So more rumors out of Mexico. Now there's a venue and ticket pre-sale date for the rumored Guadalajara show:
Venue: Nuevo Estadio de las Chivas
(Update: Some confusion here, might actually be one of these venues, according to the editor of the newspaper - Estadio 3 de Marzo, Arena VFG, or Auditorio Telmex)
Presale: March 2011
Also, Jose called the editor of the newspaper and he claims that the show is confirmed and will happen. That's nice, and I hope he's right, but that means nothing right now.

Trying to get more info on this, and if we should trust it. Again, making it perfectly clear so no one gets pissed off at me later : ), this is only a rumor, and in no way confirmed by any official entity. Nothing is confirmed officially until you see it at the official site. Having said that, this show does make sense if Robert's hint about South America comes to be.

And here's another article running in the Mexican newspaper Mural. It says "Although it has been announced the names of stars Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, and Luis Miguel, in the calendar this year are already scheduled concerts Mötley Crüe, Shakira, Duran Duran, Ricky Martin, Ozzy Osbourne, Cindy Lauper and The Cure." (Thanks Jose)

Rumor: Cure at the Big Festival in France?

"The Cure is rumored to play at the "Big Festival" in Biarritz (France), in July." (Thanks Jerome)

I think it's probably safe to write this one off, as Robert has stated pretty clearly that "unless something remarkable happens, we will not be playing any other European shows!" Has something remarkable happened? We can all wish and hope, but again, as of today, if you want to see The Cure live in 2011, get to Bestival. If there's a change in that, you know I'll let you know just as soon as possible.

Rumor: Cure to play Guadalajara, Mexico?

This was posted yesterday in the Mexican newspaper "Mural". It says The Cure will play in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2011. Here's what Google translates it to: "Choose city - This 2011 looks to be another great year of concerts in GDL as The Cure, Cyndi Lauper and Motley Crue would be here." Obviously, this is not confirmed in any way, but it certainly is intriguing. Still, as of today, the only place you can see The Cure live in 2011 is at Bestival. (Thanks Jose)
