Guess the Las Vegas setlist
« on: March 26, 2009, 18:11:09 »
Thanks to jbud1980 for suggesting this.  :smth023

It's contest time once again at Curefans.com!  With the Las Vegas show rapidly approaching, we're wondering what you think The Cure's set will consist of.  Pop classics?  A dark dream?  Perhaps some b-sides or other oddities?  Let us know by selecting up to 35 songs in the order you think they will be played.  The staff has come up with a scoring system to determine who made the closest guess. 

Deductions are as follows:

-1: song out of order by one spot
-2: song out of order by two spots
-3: song out of order by three or more spots
-4: for not selecting a song that was played
-5: selecting a song that wasn't played

Complicated?  Maybe.  But hey, the staff is going to be tallying up the scores, not you.  ;)

And with a contest there should be a prize, right?  Well, we've got something pretty cool to award the winner.

1st place will get a 4:13 Dream lithograph signed by Robert Smith.



2nd place will receive a DVD of the recent NME concert in London [TV Broadcast]


So please, submit your list here. 

Remember:

1-No more than 35 songs.
2-Place the songs in the order you think they will be played.
3-Please state what you think the total time of the concert will be.  This will be used in case there's a tie. 

Deadline to enter is April 15th.

Well, it's really good.  I just watched it the other night with a couple of glasses of wine.

24 Plainsong - 25 Disintegration


 :smth023

I like your picks here and thought about doing the same, or having If Only Tonight and The Kiss as an encore.  In the end I went with the two KMKMKM songs in the main set.  Not sure I made the right call, but we'll see.

I considered using one of those two as well, but decided instead to play it safe.

I think you might have made the right call with your encores.  My thinking was this is a Cure show and they've been doing some multi-band gigs lately.  Might be time for something a bit different.  Not Figurehead, Hanging Garden, Pornography different mind you.  Just something that this line-up has done.  But I'll probably be wrong with my picks like Faith, Charlotte, and a few others.  Wishful thinking I suppose.  ;) 

And hey, with your selection of Disintegration in the main set, even if it lands in the encore you'll still  be okay.
