Next day at the zoo for me. Gonna be a crazed fan and hang out at the Starlight all day. Hoping the Bass Gods will smile on me.
Different kind of animal watching? Bring binoculars and guide book.
Thinking about what time the band shows up at the venue made me wonder. If you're in the Cure, I guess your workday ends at about midnight. How many hours other Cure stuff do they do before that? If they worked an 8 hour day it would start about 4PM...? So their 2PM is like your 6AM. They've been working nights for 30+ years... so doing some brightly lit interviews and TV shows must feel like someone dragged them out of a sound sleep. No wonder.
Obviously if I'm spending this much time thinking about it I've been up far too long.
It would be so perfect if you would just fall out the window

I'm hoping if I get there at a good time I can check out soundcheck. They are playing Minnesota on the 7th and KC on the 8th, so a afternoon soundcheck seems like the right thing. Ok, I admit there's like a 99.999999999% chance it'll be the techies and not the band, but I can dream. OOH! OOH! OOH! Maybe I'll be able to get Eden to sign my VV shirt.
They also have a Club Access that is VIP(?). I sent them an email asking what it includes (like parking, etc.) and have yet to hear back. One section of the site doesn't mention parking and one does. So I'll have to see what they say.

UPDATE: Seems that the Club Access DOES NOT include parking. You still have to pay for that. But with a Club Access, you get: Early entry (30 minutes before general public), special entrance (gate 8), access to a buffet--mostly appetizers, cash bar, local entertainment and special bathrooms.
Oh well, at least you can get something to eat before the show and not have to fight bathroom lines.

Looking at the Starlight's FAQ and found this:
"May I bring my camera and take photos at Starlight?
Guests are welcome to bring cell phones and/or small point-and-shoot cameras (no detachable lenses) into Starlight to take photos of friends, family and the Starlight venue before the show begins. When the curtain rises for a Broadway performance, however, photographing, videotaping or audio-recording any portion of the performance, stage setup, props or costumes without written consent of management is strictly prohibited. For concerts, artist restrictions vary but most allow small non-professional cameras in the seating area. GoPros, selfie sticks, iPads, laptop computers and other devices are not always allowed, so please plan accordingly and be flexible."
So it seems like we won't have to sneak in cameras! I'm sure The Cure are one of those artists that will allow the small non-professional cameras.
