I am fascinated by fans who follow MASSIVELY the band during a very large number of dates on a tour. I'd like to hear numbers ! Do some of you went to a whole european leg or american one of a tour ? How many dates etc... Do you know people who reached 100 shows or more ? I'd love to hear them !
I can't wait the next tour ;-)
Rennes 1996 / Nîmes 1998 / Paris 2000 / Carhaix 2002 /London 2002/ Brussels 2002 / Hamburg 2002 / Berlin 2002 /Aix les bains 2004 / Six fours 2004 /Werchter 2004 / St Malo 2005/ Paris 2008 / Paris 2016 /Hyde Park 2018/ Malahide Castle 2019 / Saint-Cloud 2019
I don't really do that. I did do 6 shows on the 4Tour, 4 in Europe & then the 2 last nights in New York & 3 of the Reflections shows (Australia & London) but other then that I don't go mad & tavel for half a year solid. I do, however see people at shows that I've met before at other shows. Always good to bump into a familiar face & listen to their tales of what shows they've made it to.
I've seen The Cure 20 times in my life. From 1984-2016. I would certainly go to more but I can really only go see them in nyc or Philadelphia unless I fly and that gets expensive..other wise I would have gone to more shows.
òla ! just started at the swing tour with only one show in 96. but with every tour I went to more. in 2016 I did 14 shows through Europe. at the end of the tour I was a bit disappointed after I realized that I still was physically able to attend more. at the beginning I thought that those 14 dates will kill my feets and I'll be be tired ... I wasn't ! ... but the tour was over with 3 nights at Wembley. I fear that we have to jump on the festival train next year aarrghhhh

My first Cure show was in Dresden 1990. Like pillowman I went to more shows with every tour. Personal record was in 2016 with a total of 12 shows, 4 shows in the US (including the amazing show in El Paso) and 8 shows in Europe. On this tour I followed a crazy guy on periscope (forgot his name). Not sure but I think he went to all shows on the US leg in 2016 and some shows in Australia. One of my personal highlights was in 2013, when I flew to South America and went to the shows in Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires & Santiago de Chile. A crazy trip I always like to remember.
Hyde Park 2 weeks ago was my 49th show. Hope the 50th will not a Festival show.
steve I was also at the shows in New York in 2008. On the second night they played a very nice set. I remember when Robert left the stage during Freakshow or Close To Me and climbed somewhere
