I really cannot comprehend her reasoning, seeing your favourite band play for three and a half hours is somehow wrong? The only fault I find, is the ridiculous council insistence that concerts finish at eleven .................. ish.
Lol's response on Facebook to the second article is hilarious!
Wow you can’t write this stuff! ( and maybe they shouldn’t ? ) The Guardian critic is back apparently and justifying the nonsense she wrote about The Cure at RAH . Self aggrandizing journalism anyone? Me? I’m staying " back in the garage with my Bullsh*t detector”!
Clearly the journo's cannot have actually been present in the hall or else they would have realised that they were having a unique perspective of the gigs compared to the many thousands of paying fans who clearly loved it, myself included.. As Lol says they have never understood, or ever will, what The Cure is about.. It's a good job Robert doesn't care much for their opinions.. For me I thought it was one of the best value gigs I have seen. £100 ticket isn't cheap, but I now of no other band who then does a 45 song 3+hr set!!!. And don't look even the slightest bit tired after.. By contrast the £65 I paid see to Morrissey at ally pally a few years ago for 45mins was the worst value and left me swearing never to spend a single penny on that t#€t again..
We are so damn lucky that our favourite band is The Cure I guess not every band would play 3+ hours with 45 songs. And every single penny was worth it for the two TCT shows. I can understand that you were annoyed barstef that you've paid £ 65 and then Morrissey played only 45 min. Too much money for a short concert.
I walk wondering why, the same dream so many times
Hi you all ! Tonight, I'm druunk, so I won't be … I must say that as beeing a Cure fan for years, The last shows (2005 till' Now) have left me a bit perplexed… I must admit I'm a huge Cure old time period fan and I have to admit that to me, the last great set lists in a Cure concert were in 2004, when popsonggs, were jus a bonus… I dindn't attend the shows at RAH, but I have to say that almost half of it would have been meanless to me… I must admit that I would have had a great time hearing 2 late & Harold and jo, the only surprises then, but where have the great Cure set lists gone ?! Do you guys remember what a surprise it was to hear "Funeral party" or "Subway song" when you really wouldn't expect it back in 96' ? Where are M, The drowning man, Faith, The Figurehead and even long, epic versions of A forest with Robert beating his guitar?... Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with these reviews, but these last shows don't give me the thrills I use to feel a few years back. I'm still hoping for The Cure To give me Thrills like they use to do a few years ago, not that long ago… Please The Cure, please me again and again and again…..
