I know this is going to sound wierd, but I don't have a problem with this -- as long as it doesn't conflict with my schoolwork. When I got the ticketmaster email talking about a delay, I feared it would be a month or two, which is crunch time for university courses, or on a day I have a night class.

In a strange way, the further ahead it is, the further away is the moment after the show is over and I feel depressed I won't see The Cure for awhile. Also, it gives me time to really starve myself of Cure music so I reach orgasm in concert!

And my great seat is still valid so I'm happy, and those who didn't get good seats can maybe buy up ones that will be returned.

I'm totally not saying people don't have a right to be pissed off, especially if their schedule is busy or they have made travel arrangements. I'm a lucky guy because I live close to the venue and have a cozy place to live.

I feel badly for fellow Cure fans who are in trouble though. I hope you folks are gonna be alright.

I am glad that the set list was posted. I just wanted to be sure some of the songs I know were played and they all were. I am sorta a weird person when it comes to music. Most of the time I am not really a huge fan of the band till I see them in concert. That happened with U2, Depeche Mode and INXS so I have Galore but nothing else. What should I listen to in order to become more familiar with their stuff?
Well I guess that date's a way off, huh. So you have lots of time to listen to:

Disintegration (1989)
Wish (1992)
Kiss Me (1987)
Seventeen Seconds (1980)
Faith (1981)
Pornography (1982)
Three Imaginary Boys (1979)
The Top (1984)
The Head on the Door (1985)

Basically, The Cure is great because unlike U2 they play from a wide variety of albums. I personally was hooked from my brother's Mixed Up (1990) album which had a lot of Galore type singles. The singles are awesome on Galore, but it's only the excellent pop aspect of the band. There's a harder sound and a more lovelorn sombre aspect; the latter is my favorite: you've already had a taste: "A Letter to Elise," "Pictures of You," "Catch," but on "Wish," there's also the awesome "Trust" and "Apart" and "To Wish Impossible Things" and a great pop song in "Doing the Unstuck."

It took me quite a while to appreciate the harder stuff, but it's worth it; it just takes more effort. I guess "Fascination Street" might fit into that category.

I'd start with Disintegration and Wish. The early 80s stuff can be a bit hard because it sounds dated, especially the drum effects, but it's great if you give it time. Pornography is heavy but pretty awesome if you're in the right mood. There's nothing like "One Hundred Years", "Siamese Twins", "The Figurehead" or "Cold" if you're feeling bleak about why human kind deserves to live.

The Faith album has one of my favorites "The Drowning Man" and "All Cats Are Grey" (which was used in the end credits of Marie Antoinette).


All the albums are selling for pretty cheap in remastered SINGLE DISC format. Also, if you like the songs, maybe learn the lyrics, which are quite incredible.

I know especially because Robert tends to slur words as he shouts in concert, so you need to know them before hand to know what he's saying. :smile:

New dates announced; only Seattle's venue has been changed to a festival (and I think that sucks because festival bellweather fans are annoying and never shut up!), and some new dates have also been announced, but I'll let the Cure press release tell you that; I should note that, while it says tickets can be returned until November 1st, my ticketmaster email specified it was until 5pm October 31st, so you can't return them on November 1st!

13TH SEPTEMBER 2007
THE CURE ANNOUNCE RE-SCHEDULED 2008 NORTH AMERICAN 4TOUR SHOWS

AT LAST!
WE ARE VERY HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THE NEW 2008 DATES OF OUR POSTPONED NORTH AMERICAN 4TOUR.

EIGHTEEN OF THE NINETEEN PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED SHOWS HAVE BEEN RE-SCHEDULED IN THE ORIGINAL VENUES, AND ALL 2007 TICKETS WILL BE HONOURED FOR THESE NEW 2008 CONCERTS.

(THE ONLY ONE WE COULDN’T GET SWITCHED WAS SEATTLE… BUT INSTEAD OF NO CURE SHOW AT ALL, WE WILL BE CLOSING THE SASQUATCH! MUSIC FESTIVAL ON SUNDAY 25TH MAY (MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND) AT THE GORGE AMPHITHEATRE, WHERE WE HAVE BEEN GUARANTEED 150 MINUTES ONSTAGE! ALL TICKETS FOR THE ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED CURE KEY ARENA CONCERT WILL BE HONOURED AT THE GORGE, BUT PLEASE NOTE: ALL TICKETS FOR THE SASQUATCH! FESTIVAL ARE GENERAL ADMISSION, INCLUDING ANY PREVIOUSLY ISSUED CURE KEY ARENA TICKETS).

IT’S ALL HAPPENING SLIGHTLY LATER THAN WE EXPECTED DUE TO ‘THE PLAYOFFS’ – A LOT OF THE VENUES WE NEEDED WOULDN’T LET US CONFIRM DATES IN THE MARCH/APRIL PERIOD – BUT WE UNDERSTAND THEY ALL HAVE TO LIVE IN HOPE!

HOWEVER, AN UNEXPECTED BONUS OF THE NEW ROUTING IS THAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ADD IN KANSAS CITY, PHOENIX, AUSTIN, FT LAUDERDALE AND CLEVELAND… AND THERE WILL BE MORE DATES TO COME!

WE APOLOGIZE AGAIN FOR THE INCONVENIENCE AND UPSET THE ORIGINAL POSTPONEMENT CAUSED, AND WILL MAKE SURE THAT THE NEW SHOWS ARE MORE THAN WORTH THE WAIT…

SEE YOU ALL SOON,

LOVE ROBERT, SIMON, JASON AND PORL XXXX (THE CURE)

PS
ANYONE WHO WANTS A REFUND ON THEIR 2007 TICKET WILL BE ABLE TO GET ONE IN FULL FROM HIS OR HER POINT OF PURCHASE UNTIL 1ST NOVEMBER 2007.

PPS
ALL TICKET INFO LINKS WILL BE UP AS SOON AS WE HAVE THEM...

fat bob is a frigging dumbass for scheduling the tour THEN scrapping it because he hadn't finished the new album that nobody cares about. when i see them (in a mere 9 months!) they better not replace some of the kickass wish stuff (open, end) with crappy new songs.

bitching aside, im actually quite happy the tour got gutted. it allowed to me sell back the second pair of tickets i accidently bought AND now instead of seeing the cure next week, im seeing arcade fire/lcd soundsystem at the hollywood bowl, eff yeah!!

Totally. When I saw that aspect of the setlists from the shows in Australia, I got really excited.

Sorry for the delay. I LOVED Wish, too. What's whiskey tango foxtrot?

So, anyone go to the Download Festival? Apparently they played a new song. Any ideas if it was good?

Apparently this was the setlist, which I will endeavor to copy and past from Chain of Flowers without looking at it in order, so I don't ruin the surprise for myself when I see The Cure in May.

Tape (intro), Open, alt.end, A Night Like This, The Baby Screams, The End of the World, Lovesong, Pictures of You, Lullaby, Maybe Someday,
Kyoto Song, NEW SONG! (title unkown at this time. Olivier says "It's pretty upbeat"), The Walk, Push, How Beautiful You
Are, Inbetween Days, Just Like Heaven, Primary, If Only Tonight We Could Sleep, The Kiss, Never Enough, Wrong Number, Signal To Noise, One
Hundred Years, Shiver and Shake, End

1st Encore: Three Imaginary Boys, Fire In Cairo, Boys Don't Cry, Jumping Someone Else's Train, Grinding Halt, 10:15 Saturday Night, Killing An
Arab
2nd Encore: Play For Today, A Forest.

Show was 2 hours and 47 minutes.

New song played at California's Download Festival:

rumored to be called "Please Project":

Hard to hear but it's got some nice potential!
