"Rumours that The Cure will perform in Sydney for Vivid Live went a lot hotter today when the Vivid peeps added a Cure video to their Facebook page"



It's official: Concerts will take place this 31th May and 1st June. Both concerts will start 19h00 Sydney Time (UTC/GMT  10 hours -11h00 in most European cities)

Tbh I think that its a REAL long shot that they'll be doin Vivid. I wish.. oh I wish  ;)
It just seems far to last min for them to be doin it. Usually we get more notice  :P
However, if they are to tour here and do Vivid, I'll have to work me majik to get there hehehe.
Keep me posted peeps if there is any more news about it - I'll be doin likewise.

over and out.

Lots of hoping happening here.


But until it's official I suppose I'll just keep banging my head on this desk in between hitting the refresh button

Hi to everyone :smth039

and to cherry my sweet
The other one feeds on my hesitation
Grows inside of my trepidaton
Buries his claws in my dislocation
I whisper your name to lose control


According our friends at hispacure.com "it's just a matter of time for The Cure to make an official announcement confirming their participation in Sydney, including BIG surprises in the lineup"

OK guys, rumour is that Roger O'Donnell is going back to The Cure, that's all I heard so far. He even mentioned Australia in his Twitter account: "You know I could have sworn the water swirled in the other direction in Australia? Bloody Google ruins everything..."

Altough I don't know what the hell he means with that :)

Oh I think it's pretty obvious that he's back in the cure, there are just so many hints in his tweets, like saying he's going out to buy black clothes and a tambourine... that he's usually bad at keeping secrets but has kept this one well... and when someone asked him about his 'old band' (the cure) he replied talking about his other old bands. I'm almost certain he's back.


It seems that Laurence Tolhurst is also going back with The Cure but probably just for a few appearances (not as a regular Cure member). According to hispacure.com Roger recently added Lol through social networks. Asked about this (Lol and Roger never had any relation), Roger said "when you will see the news Robert is going to publish you will understand it"

Now that I remember, The Cure played in Sydney 30 years ago, so this show would be a kind of 30Th Anniversary celebration, right? :)
