Anyone got an idea on how long the headliner gets to play?

I'm not sure how long they'll play, but would imagine it won't be the three hours we're used to for a normal Cure gig.  Maybe an hour and a half?  :smth017

Maniac Street Preachers headlined the last NME festival, they played thirteen songs so I guess about one hour. I can't say how long our boys are going to play until we don't know the entire program. But I don't think they will play shorter then 90 minutes.

Hopefully we'll have some members attending. Anyone?  Remember that tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am. 

Strange that the other bands haven't been announced.   :smth017

does anyone know if they've only got a 30 minute slot?
in the blurb for the brixton gig robert says: "We'll play some new stuff, some old stuff and some stuff from in between, trying to distil 30 years into 30 minutes"

If it sells out right away with just Cure fans, maybe they won't add many other acts, as there will be lots of other award shows. Did the tickets just go on sale for the Manics last year to begin with?

Yes, I said it lines before. But I don't think The Cure will headline a show just to play one hour. Really not.

Well, I will try and be there. It really depends on how much tickets are and whether I can convince some friends to go with me. I wish they'd given us more notice.


Did some research, you can expect tix to be around £35-40 each so not too bad at all.

tickets are £30 plus £4 booking fee

tixs, flights, hotel booked and prayer tour t-shirt packed!!!

I expect it will be a "pop" based show... or will RS put a subtle twist to the headline performance????  :smth023
