How could I have discovered this so late?

I'm 42 years old and I'm discovering The Cure. For some reason I listened to it in my teens and thought it wasn't for me; like it was something alternative for special people.

Nothing could be further from the truth. I'm so excited about this band and have decided to cover "Pictures of You" at their gig at EXIT Festival 2019.

I'm not good with staccato but I've done my best! --> https://youtu.be/jcqnq_GreOI

All that's left now is to find tickets for one of their concerts. THAT is going to be difficult  :D

Thank you @dsanchez !


By the way, I have to say that I am also surprised with Robert Smith guitar skills. It seems like he is playing simple lines but he is so darn precise doing the staccato (repeatedly hitting the string from up->down only). Hats off to him!

Welcome to the forum.  :cool

I agree, Robert is an underrated guitarist!

Thank you!

Now I'm looking for tickets but unfortunately all is already sold in Spain. Do you know if they plan to add additional dates to the tour?

You might wanna try something like "ebay small ads", where people sell tickets. (Also at offical ticket sellers, some contingents might be for sale a bit later - once the setting of the stage etc. is known, more seats might be available for example.)
