I Want to send a big thankyou and many kisses to all the wonderful people at curefans who I shared this experience with.  Billee, Scatcat, Cherry red, Tigermilk, Sussex (and your lovely friend) , and all the other people we met You are all so wonderful, and it was the most amazing time.

I'm glad everyone arrived home safely, I too am still reeling from everything, I have exams in 3 days and have also caught a cold, so forgive me, I will try and get myself organised before posting a proper review and some photos.

It's been wonderful reading reviews and seeing everyones photos...

There's another pretty good and detailed review here too that you could add to the front page http://www.fasterlouder.com.au/reviews/events/28813/The-Cure-Sydney-Opera-House-31511

One thing that these concerts really hammer home, and a point I've seen raised once or twice since, is the power and majesty of the album format. Obviously The Cure have already gone down this road with Trilogy..but gawd...I have visions of of peeps in the 80s, lying back in the bean bag in the dark, headphones on, warm crackle of an LP absorbing the full scope of 17 Seconds, or Faith.
To sit through that was something special. Different from a normal tour concert.

Secrets you summed it up puurfectly! It WAS truly special.. Very different from a 'normal' tour concert... Wondering how it was all going to be like , whether I would get as much out of The Cure again.. unimaginable how it was.. FUN!! Thankyou to our boys for delivering such a surprise!  :smth023
Yes The Cure can be gloomy, make you cry (boys don't , but us girls certainly sooked!) but to hear the 'pop' sounds and 'daggy' ones was just what I needed.. yes, remembering the uplifting, fun youth memories..  :-D

Hey everyone :) Hoped all of you who went had a great time at Reflections. It was so nice to see you all (however briefly) and I do apologise if I seemed a bit out of it - I was completely overwhelmed by the experience and my head was in the clouds!

My experience was pretty special for me - Simon saw my HAPPY BIRTHDAY t-shirt and smiled at me, I got a smile from Bob and Roger and I met Lol at the airport the next day!

Did everyone have a great time?

Hi everyone
back on my real puter. Just trying to find some decent stuff to post. Can't believe this time last week we were at the Opera House waiting in nervous anticipation.
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

Hey guys,

I've uploaded some new pictures. Thanks to Sam (a fan who sat besides me) for the lovely pictures. Robert looks so adorable in one of the pictures.
