Seems like they got to watch about 45 minutes, then met the band, took photos with them, and got autographs. Very nice!
THANK YOU! to Leslie, Kariana, and Justin for the updates & photos tonight! Really didn't think we'd get any.
And THANK YOU to Jill for sending her report and photos, too!

Thanks to Leslie and her niece Kariana, we have reports!
8:55 PM - "I just spoke with them and they are out. They met the band and had pictures taken. They said they will post more pics from their other camera and that they will post the details on the blog."
8:12 PM - "They are playing A Forest"
8:10 PM - "They are inside now for rehersal"
7:22 PM (Pacific) - "They are there now! Waiting outside and you can hear them playing "Lullaby" inside the venue."
A long shot, but if any of you reading this are attending tonight's rehearsal, please let us know your thoughts when you get out.
While it's doubtful they'll report anything, you can listen to Live 105 here.
And again, please don't post the location of the event. Thanks, and have a great time if you're going!
My niece won! That lucky girl and her boyfriend will be there tonight :)ReplyDelete
Lucky her! Please let us know if you hear anything from her.Delete
I will! She'll be texting me.ReplyDelete
She should have taken you! :)ReplyDelete
They are there now! Waiting outside and you can hear them playing "Lullaby" inside the venue.ReplyDelete
Thank you! And thank your niece! What's her name? Or would she rather just be referred to as Leslie's niece? :)Delete
They are inside now for reversal. She's texting pics but I don't know how to post them here :(ReplyDelete
Send them to me - craigatcof(at)gmail(dot)com.Delete
They are playing "A Forest".ReplyDelete
Oh, her name is Kariana and this pic (jmoranabel) is from her boyfriend. He was the Winner! She's the lucky guest.ReplyDelete
Oh cool! Okay. Thanks again!Delete
Did u talk with the band? Any news about new music? New album? 4:13 Reloaded album? ThanxReplyDelete
They were great tonight. Robert cracked jokes throughout the set with us and really seemed to be enjoying himself. It was really one of the more surreal moments of my life. Id even joked that nobody ever won those contests. Ill never think that again. Kariana and I will be posting more pictures to our instagrams soon. Including our pic with the band!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the photos, Justin! I think you guys need to decompress now. :)Delete
Man, that is a once in a lifetime experience. Congratulations on the win!
I will decompress only until their set tomorrow....then it starts all over again! (Albeit in a much larger format)Delete
Cheers! Thanks for sharing the photos with everyone
Hah! Yeah, much more Cure to go. Hope you guys have a great time at BottleRock!Delete
Before Three! One of my favourite from "The Cure"!Much better than THOTW!I hope for "Lost" or "The promise" too and something from Bloodflowers...ReplyDelete
Congratulations to the winners, and thanks so much for sharing these photos :) Happy they're playing "Before Three" again, I've always loved that song (a benefit of seeing them play Curiosa was getting to experience a bunch of songs they'd - I thought - never play live again).ReplyDelete
I was joking with my wife that if I'd won this contest, I'd pretty much have to keep in touch with the other winners, because there'd only be a handful of people in the world that you could say "Hey, remember that time we saw The Cure privately?" to. Amazing!
Christian I said the same thing to Kariana last night. Its like we survived a plane crash together or something. Think itll be hard to explain to others. Haha. Matter of fact we are meeting up with one of the other winners at bottle rock this weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you Justin and Kariana for sharing your experiences and photos! What a wonderful time to be able to cherish for the rest of your lives! Have a blast at Bottlerock tonight!ReplyDelete
anyone knows the complete setlist?ReplyDelete
It doesn't look like they were allowed to get that close. Either way, a very cool experience.ReplyDelete
I was there! I have a bunch of shots and we talked to the hired photographer so more to come. Also have the setlist I scratched down that night- we did get close! Got to talk to Robert for a couple of minutes. Dream come true- Sorry for the teaser,off to work and promise to post tonight! ~JillReplyDelete
Thanks, Jill! Can't wait to hear the details. And congratulations on being one of the winners!Delete
According to my friend doing the unstuck was played and robert asked for requests, then said let's play something we won't play tomorrow. So they played Sinking.ReplyDelete
Jill here--back from the teaser this morning!ReplyDelete
Can mirror what other lucky winners said...heard Lullaby, Just Like Heaven as well as Catch and Shake Dog Shake before getting let into the studio.
Set list as I remember it (order might not be perfect--I did my best...I was a little beside myself)
• Doing the Unstuck
• The Baby Screams
• Before Three
• Close to Me
• Fascination Street
• A Forest
After checking in with their sound guy and the band, Robert asked if there was something else we wanted to hear...my only regret was that 'Underneath The Stars' was on the tip of my tongue, but I couldn't manage to say it out loud.
Everyone was allowed to bring items to be signed, and the entire band signed everything. I was able to talk to Robert for a couple of minutes... he was very charming (shocking, I know). I wish I'd had the presence to ask about 4:14 Scream, but I was trying so hard to remain upright and not seem foolish- I remember him asking what we had to do to win this contest- and him wrinkling his nose at "enter, and get really f*ing lucky". It was SO random, but please know- 80% of the people there were huge, long time fans.
Hit me up with any questions!
Link to photos here.
Sorry for the quality, we were only allowed to use iPhones...
Included photos of items I was able to get signed by the Band...Craig...thought you'd appreciate the album!
Thank you so much for the report and photos, Jill. Hope you don't mind me starting a new topic for these and using 2 of your photos for it. Love the autographed JLH 12"! :)Delete
If anyone has questions for Jill, please post them in her topic. Thanks!
