There is a person in this world who has not heard "Oz" used as an abbreviation for Australia?

Wow.

The tour hasn't started yet.

www.foreverdrowning.net has a lot of previous Cure setlists, so you can see what they've been playing in recent years.

Well, I'd heard the term Aussie in refering to Australian individuals, but not Oz.

Ah, but you should hear my Australian accent. I met this woman on a German study abroad program who appreciated my imitation, while everyone else was trying but only doing some English/Scottish thing.

Cotton socks?
Maybe call the credit card company or don't buy anything for a while.

The site runner of www.chainofflowers.com has been kind enough to issue this offer to warn people about tickets for cities they want to see in North America going on sale:


"I don't know if this will really be needed (or wanted) this time around, but in case it helps someone out, the Cure Ticket Alert system is back. Not here for the Dream and Curiosa tours, or just forgot what the alert system is? Because I'm lazy (and still have to set up the lists), I'll just copy the explanation from the Curiosa alerts:

"I have given in and will revive the Cure Ticket Alert mailing list. For those of you who weren't here for the Dream Tour, this is a private mailing list I set up to send out ticket alerts (pre-sale info, on sale dates, etc) as soon as I get the info. All info will still be posted here, but this saves you the trouble of checking COF every hour to see if there's any ticket info yet. Unlike the Dream Tour alerts, which were an "all in one" alert, I'm breaking it up into individual lists for each city on the Curiosa tour this time.
So if you would like to be included, just e-mail me and let me know which city or cities you want the info for, and I'll add you to the list."

This is only for the US and Canadian shows. Thanks and good luck getting tickets!"

Check the feedback section of the site to see his e-mail address.

This from Robert Smith:

NZ
6/26/2007 1:36:23 PM - by CURE:ROBERT

THE AUCKLAND SHOW WILL BE CONFIRMED HERE WEDNESDAY NIGHT...

WE ARE PLAYING IN NZ!
RSX

for all the latest info including times when tickets go on sale check the News page on http://www.chainofflowers.com

I don't want to post everything because hardcore fans deserve to get tickets first if there's going to be a rush, but there may be genuine Cure fans who are just out of the loop these days. So, I'm not gonna post everything from now on. If you care enough, just check the above-mentioned site.

I'm just back from the Singapore gig. Enjoyed myself greatly. They played for nearly three hours.

They played (copied and pasted from http://www.cure-concerts.de/main/2007.php)

open, fascination street, a strange day, the blood, a night like this, the walk, the end of the world, lovesong, push, pictures of you, lullaby, kyoto song, hot hot hot!, alt.end, the drowning man, from the edge of the deep green sea, friday i'm in love, just like heaven, primary, if only tonight we could sleep, the kiss, shake dog shake, never enough, wrong number, one hundred years, shiver and shake, end,
E1: let's go to bed, close to me, why can't i be you?,
E2: three imaginary boys, fire in cairo, boys don't cry, jumping someone else's train, grinding halt, 10.15 saturday night, killing an arab

I REALLY, REALLY want to go to the Melbourne show .. I think that there are still tickets available, it's just a matter of finding some money for them!

For what it's worth they also played 'In Between Days' before 'Friday I'm In Love'.

Robert was in really good voice and Simon Gallup was looking very cool. Porl had a bit of trouble with some technical stuff and got kinda pissed at the end, I think, I remember him kicking one of his pedals. They also kinda lost the crowd after the big songs - I confess I didn't know quite a bit of the stuff they were playing but the encores got the crowd right back in it. I was especially taken by the whole second encore with all the old songs, very good stuff.

They were throwing out setlists and stuff but I didn't get one, these annoying Caucasian guys who pushed their way to the front, began smoking in a non-smoking venue, and generally spent most of the time taking photos of each other rather than enjoying the music and being obnoxious got one.

Definitely something I'll remember for a long time to come.

I checked ticketek today and the general admission tickets are sold out but there's still tix available in 'A' reserve .. but with restricted viewing .... hmmmm The other thing is that I really want my sis to come along with me, but she's more broke-r than me and I'm not sure if I can cover her ticket ..
