hello you all, i am sorry i did not go back to the forum earlier. i simply could not, and it is still hard somehow. wished you have all been there, in person or in spirit. have been thinking of this lovely community so much! just since sunday last week i am in such a massive hole, that i did not even read back the threads yet, as i am crying already by the thought of it. i am sure i will do so in the next time, just not now, not yet. thank you everybody who contributed to this, i will treasure it when i am ready x
yet i am so happy and thankful i could go to these two nights, and oh, what a wonderful set it was! my favourite album disintegration and with just enough of seventeen seconds, my almost favourite, that it felt not random. i loved every second, and especially this night truly felt like christmas for me!
can not really describe the feeling of suddenly realising, i am there! wembley! kiss me and prayer tour dreams! having my moments as soon as i was in the arena and lights were out for twilight sad.. was hard to believe it really came true! and when cure started with plainsong, these chimes catapulted me back to the 16 year old me, when hearing the song live for the first time, dreaming of a finale in wembley. crazy, wonderful and surreal on every level. the place, the band and all those nice people i met over there, either the joy of seeing someone in person for the first time or meeting new ones. i never was a clique or community person, so you can judge by yourself what this means to me.
atmosphere was wonderful, i did not mind the huge arena at all, as when you are standing you forget about the vastness and the other people there so quickly. was not hard to get a good spot either, not front row but 7 or 8 or so. even with my lack of height i could see quite well
other voices came as a special surprise... and the words "come around at christmas.." came more fittingly than ever. also heard charlotte sometimes for the first time on this tour! and then last dance.... lost in a dream! disintegration, at night, went crazy with "m" and play for today, and then when i thought it could not get any better, ending with 10:15 and killing an arab.
could not resist and went dancing and bouncing to the middle front. so glad i wore my docs, enjoying the pogo to let out all these emotions that had accumulated over these last months, finding their way out at the most wonderful set for me on this tour. yes, spoilt, happy and out of this world i was! that is what makes it so hard now.
hope you are well, hugs to you all and just listen to these chimes... x
A nice review of the show, thanks godwina. Super, that you've enjoyed it. I can understand you very well, after a Cure concert, I'm sad and happy at the same time - and I miss this band, their concerts are like a dream you wish you won't wake up. Still hope to see them someday again live on stage, before they retire.
I walk wondering why, the same dream so many times
Woaw, they're so beautiful and look so happy ! I wish I could meet them someday... I wish I could meet you all someday, at a Cure gig, maybe ? Would be awesome
thank you justlikeheaven!!! was thinking about this many times...always someone who is missing! just going through the threads now a bit, did not know these pics are on here. you can see on how long it takes me to actually read all this that i am still a bit lost x
