The album sounds like it's going to be really good.

Between that and the Placebo DVD, we're gonna be in music heaven.

I can't wait for this. I've only become a major Cure fan within the past six months, but new Cure? I think that if this is going to be the last Cure album (and I really do hope it's not!) it seems like they should have ended with Bloodflowers. I'm really hoping they'll have at least one more album after this, if only because I don't want to see this as the final album. Eh, if that made any sense...

Cujo has been rubbing off on you!

I love the new avatar.

I have heard the new Cure song on the radio, and it sound better than some of their recent releases.

The video for their new single is up on Yahoo! Launch. 'Tis on the front page right now.

http://launch.yahoo.com

Mtv2 was also showing a half-hour thing called "The Cure Make a Video." They'll probably be showing it eight times a day if anyone wants to check that out.

Yeah, I saw that yesterday. I totally has an 'old school music video' vibe to it. I approve

So has anyone gone so far? I'd like to hear impressions and such.

I'll be there next week, rocking as much as is allowed goth-wise.

I have been trying to win tickets all day...I have been caller 1,2,5,6...but not seven.

Otherwise, I will buy tickets at the venue on Thursday!

Re: The Cure Tour Announced

OK.....back from a day of concert going with a bag full of stories! I will work in order of the Curiosa Band List for our show (Tinley Park/Chicago - Cursive and Thursday did not play - no big lose in my mind):

HEAD AUTOMATICA - Not very interesting in my opinion. I think I may have heard them on the radio before, and they didn't interest me then. They all seemed like your usual "trying to hard" poser band (too well dressed, etc. etc.). What I found funny was they were given free reign of a diesel golf cart that they used ALL over the venue after their show).

MOGWAI - By far my favorite of the night. I love their music. BUT, the downside with their songs and a 45 minute set is that they can only get three songs in.

COOPER TEMPLE CLAUSE - Again...an OUTSTANDING perfromance. I really liek these guys. And the second stage is so freaking small...it is GREAT! Little did I know, as they were playing, all hell is about to break loose in my world.

At the end of their show, so roady gets on and announces "Due to an injury, Muse will not be playing tonight." Well, the friend I convinced to go with me was ONLY there to see Muse. She is a student here, and from Germany, which menas she has a REAL limited income. $38 for a lawn seat is expensive - and now this is all a big dissapointment.

We go over and talk to some of the guys from Cooper Temple to see what the story was. Were chatting with them, and they said they were all playing footbal (re:soccer) in the parking lot when the lead singer from Cooper Temple challenged the bassist of Muse for the ball. Both being competitve in a parking lot soccer game, the Cooper Temple lead singer slide tackles the Muse bassist, and the Muse bassist breaks his wrist. Dumbasses.

THE RAPTURE - Didn't even see them. We ventured to talk to the Muse roadies to see if they were around. They were all at the hospital. We went to the ticket office, and ended up talking with the Regional Box Office Director of Clear Channel. Well, she was cooler than cool and refunded us both our ticket prices, and also told me to e-mail her if I was interested in seeing Wilco in St. Louis! SWEET!

AUF DE MAUR - We missed most of them, but of what I did see...I liked. She has a big fan base in the area because she played with the Smashing Pumpkins. And she is so damn attractive!!!

INTERPOL - LOVED them. Second favorite of the evening. It is really who I came to see...and I was very impressed. I wanted to pre-order Antics, but they required you to come to the store in Chicago to pick it up. Pfft. They played an extended show due to the Muse mis-step.

THE MUSE - see TCTC and The Rapture.

THE CURE - I was so happy to here so many songs from Disintegration. That was the last concert I saw them (yup...1989...Another outstanding show considering Pixies and Love and Rockets opened for them then). My favorite album will always be Kiss Me (x3)...but that is a pretty dark and evil album to play live songs from (Little alone 17 years later). It was a good show. Fortunately they didn't play too many new songs I would know, and they capped off the night with Love Cats and Boys Don't Cry. Robert said that they don't play LoveCats too often...so it was kinda cool. He looked pretty haggard...but I expected that.

It was a cool set-up. They have five minutes between each band (starts off with a side-stage band, and alternates until the Cure). They also have a meet and greet area where two bands come out and sign CD (you must buy the CDs though).

And then they the area for the "causes" (animal rights groups, free tibet, save grandma from certain death, etc. etc.) and then the "we'll sell you vacation packages" area too.
