However, I will say that the line up for these ones is actually pretty damn good! Not only that, the ticket prices are a steal. We paid for 1 day at Reading what this festival is for 3 days. It's an absolute bargain.
I can only assume that they think festivals are a good idea because it's alot less hassle for them, personally. They can just rock up, play, get paid and generally have a good time. Solo shows involve so much more effort, hassle and money up front for the band I'm guessing.
As a Cure fan, I obviously prefer the solo shows, as the majority of us do.
But if I was local to this, I'd be going purely because I like alot of the other bands playing.
I'm pretty sure we'll get more rare songs, Robert has made it clear he's enjoying going back through the back catalogue and pulling out songs. I can't wait to hear what they are!!
Indeed. What a fantastic lineup!
Unfortunately it is far too far away.

I haven't lost hope for Italy yet... there's still the last week of September, and those Spiral 69 or whatever are quite sure about it. If they're lying they'll soon have a raging crowd of mad italians on their way, don't worry... </img>
I don't mind festivals per se but I wouldn't travel for one unless it was somewhere I actually wanted to go. Detroit, not so much. Plus I think I have been spoiled after the fantastic shows at the RAH ...
