  1. Someone please help with the setlist. C'mon Leipzig

  2. Great that they finally played “Before Three“. The best single they never released as such.

  3. Piggy in the mirror!!!! I m so jealous!

  4. First half of The Cure such a great record...

  5. During 'Wrong Number' Robert said: 'Hello? What's that? Mr Trump has spontaneously combusted?!' 😂😂😂 Great Spinal Tap reference.

    1. Spontaneously Combusted To Being The 45th President Of The United States...

    2. Wonder if "Us or Them" or "Faith" will appear in Cologne. "Give Me It"...

  6. So thw openers up to now are: shake dog shake, plainsong, open and out of this world. I wonder if they ll surpise us with underneath the stars as an opener in any upcoming event. Such a great song!

  7. Wow- Before Three and Piggy! Bravo

  8. OH FUCK!!! Before 3....I'm finally jealous of the euro crowd or at least one in particular....love this song we need a video if there's one available

  9. Oh, I'll have to listen to that!

  10. While waiting at the "east entrance" Roger came out and picked up 2 young girls ...

    Unfortunately 2 rows where already occupied, although at our entrance we were all in the front. Guess its either the VIP tickets or they opened the "west entrance" earlier ... lovely to hear Piggy!

  11. Who has recorded " Ein Augenblick" before Before three????
