Awesome Zoney!!!!!!! Thanks for posting your impressions!!!

I had read that about Muse, that totally sucks!!! It's very awesome they refunded your tickets though, wow! Too bad Cursive wasnt there, hopefully they wont miss SLC. I'm really digging their latest album. From what I've read, Head Automatica is the lead singer of some band called Glassjaw and Dan 'The Automator' Nakamura from Gorillaz. I'm not too excited about them either. I'm glad Mogwai was awesome! What CD of theirs would you recommend if I ever got one? Pure Rock Action or Happy Songs for Happy People? Those are about the only 2 CDs of theirs I usually see around.

How exactly does the 2 stage thing work? Are they very far apart from each other? Do you have to get up and move for each performance? Just wondering. I'm sure it will be set up slightly different at each venue.



Here's the setlist The Cure played for your memories:

Lost, Plainsong, Labyrinth, Facsination Street, From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea, High, The End of the World, Anniversary, Lovesong, Inbetween Days, Just Like Heaven, Pictures of You, Closedown, Before Three, Disintegration, One Hundred Years, The Promise

Encore: Close To Me, The Lovecats, Why Can't I Be You, Boys Don't Cry

In Detroit the "other" stage was on the other side of the GA lawn hill. Nowhere near each other really. You had to go all the way around the hill or over it. I got there late so I didnt catch the opening acts. The Cure came on 10 minutes late (fortunately for me as I was running late) and seemed to be a little rushed during the encore as a result (11pm all ages outdoor show noise oridinance and curfew) although they played until about 11:10.

I will e-mail my new friend Monday to thank her and see what I can do about Wilco!

Mofo....thanks for the setlist. I ws glad they didn't play "friday..."

The side stage for us was on the backside of the main stage, and you had to go back and forth between the two to see all the bads...but it IS possible to see all of the bands. I am sure all of the venues have a unique set-up....but manageable so you can see all bands if you wish!

The new single/singles have been announced:

U.S.: 'alt.end'
Europe: 'Taking Off' (lucky suckers, hopefully US will get this later)

Also, they will be on Jimmy Kimmel Live on August 26 (performing 'alt.end' and a 'Cure classic')

PS - I'll be seeing them Tomorrow!

I heard that the Curiosa Festival at The Gorge has been postponed. Does anybody know why? Is it because the guy from Muse broke his wrist??

probably another parking lot football match.

I am sorry, but I could NOT imagine seeing Robert Smith running around playing soccer.

Nah, Muse was already off the tour by now regardless. Robert Smith apparently needed to go back to England for "family matters" this weekend and they had to postpone. Major bummer for everyone, best of luck.


I'm hoping it doesnt rain for the entire 6 hrs of the show on us today, but it probably will.

Aww, poor cujo! I hope that you can make it to the rescheduled date.

From 107.7 The End's website:
Quote:
Robert Smith of The Cure, will be heading back home to London this weekend due to personal reasons. This will result in the rescheduling of the Curiosa show at The Gorge on August 21st. The Cure will now play a special show, "An Evening With The Cure," in Seattle on August 31st at The Everett Events Center. No other acts will perform. Tickets for the August 21st Curiosa Festival date will be honored at the show on August 31st. New tickets for the Everett show will go on sale Thursday at 10am through the venue.
