Might be a low-key acoustic set or something?  I can't see them setting up their gear again after hauling it down from Brisbane to Sydney overnight Wednesday.



good point.. they DO have alot of gear...
the very first time i saw your face i thought of a song and quickly changed the tune. the very first time i touched your skin i thought of a story and rushed to reach the end too soon.

All of their stuff will be setup from the night before, so I reckon it will either be at the ent centre or be a small set close by.  It will also be after doing (hopefully) 3 hours shows on wednesday and thursday night and the morning/afternoon of another 3 hour set. Doesn't Robert not get up until Midday?  Doesn't leave much time.  Possibly an early afternoon show.  Maybe the secret gig will be the soundcheck in the early afternoon?

I don't think I'll try too hard to get into this one.  Just hoping Robert doesn't choose the secret gig as the event to play one of the new songs, or shorten that nights set to compensate.  If he can get fascination street, fteotdgs, friday im in love, wciby, wrong number, hot hot hot, and a few others done for that day I'll be all the happier, especially if they are replaced by siamese twins, figurehead, all cats are grey and faith that night.

Having 2 sydney shows is a great opportunity for them to delves the obscure depths of their setlists - we'll all be there both nights anyway.  Leave the free show for the emo kiddies skipping school and the myspace fanatics who are wondering what the cure are all about.

I just hope somebody out there can tape the secret show, I'm sure the 2 proper shows will be covered, but it would be a shame if this one wasnt also captured on record :rocker
its nice to be nice

i think.. ive decided... im going to have to skip this
being on the barrier for their 3 hour set will just be too good to pass up for an overcrowded, probably short soundcheck or something
if its at the entertainment centre as well though.. well then im set

I agree with being on the barrier, but even if it is at the ent centre, they will probably kick everyone out again so that only those with tix get back in, and it would be to the back of a quickly growing line you are likely to go.

yeah i thought about that too
really
the only way for them to be nice would be if it was on saturday.
im not going to try and ponder this anymore... im lining up and that is that *puts foot down*
maybe we should change the title of this thread since its not a rumour anymore

some "fresh" news from COF, about this :


# An update on the MySpace Secret Show in Sydney (try saying that 10 times fast):

"Iconic British rockers The Cure will cram in a MySpace secret show before their show next Friday. They're scheduled onstage at the Entertainment Centre after 9pm but will help MySpace celebrate it's first birthday at a secret gig a couple of hours before. The concert is free to registered Myspace users who will find out the concert venue the day before. (Thursday)"

The above was in the Sunday Edition of The Daily Telegraph. My tickets say The Cure go on at 7:45p.m., so some times aren't making sense."

Well it is the Tele, which is the local Murdoch rag.  There is certainly a precedent for them being wrong, or plain just making stuff up.

The wristbands went in about 20 mins.  Have fun to any that might have got one.  Interested to see where the gig actually gets played.
