"On a comercial flight from Sao Paulo and closed to midnight The Cure arrived . The fans could see the band at the Asuncion Sheraton Hotel, where Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Jason Cooper, Roger O’Donnell and Reeves Gabrels arrived from Silvio Pettirossi Airport.
The seconds in between getting off the black VAN and the getting in the hotel were not enough for the fans who were waiting for any of them to go out and say hello. Around 2 am, someone who identified himself as in charge of Cure’s security went out to take a break and talked to the fans showing a confidence attitude, and identified himself as “Ingo”. Hi told them that the guys were very tired and they were not going to say hello as they were assaulted in Sao Paulo.<o:p></o:p>
The assault. According to Ingo’s version, Robert Smith and the other members were followed by robbers on motorbikes, during a car ride they were doing around the city. It was a very tense moment where they even were pointed with a gun.<o:p></o:p>
