WE HAVE BEEN BLOWN AWAY BY THE RESPONSE TO OUR JUNE 7TH SHOW AT THE XCEL ENERGY CENTER MINNEAPOLIS-ST PAUL - THANK YOU!
WHEN WE SAW HOW OVERWHELMING THE DEMAND WAS IN THE PRE-SALE, WE DID OUR BEST TO MEET IT BY SLIGHTLY INCREASING THE CAPACITY FOR THE PUBLIC ONSALE, BUT APPARENTLY IT WAS NOT NEARLY ENOUGH…

SO AS A GESTURE OF GOODWILL TO THE MANY FANS THAT HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL IN THEIR BID TO GET TICKETS, WE HAVE TAKEN THE VERY UNUSUAL STEP OF AGREEING TO 'PUSH THE STAGE BACK' EVEN FURTHER IN ORDER TO FREE UP MORE SEATS
 
THIS WILL INEVITABLY MEAN THAT SOME FANS ALREADY WITH TICKETS WILL BE A BIT FURTHER AWAY FROM THE STAGE, BUT IT WILL ALSO MEAN THAT THE MANY FANS WITHOUT TICKETS WILL NOW GET A (SECOND) CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THE SHOW
 
WE REALLY HOPE THIS DOESNT CAUSE ANYONE ANY UPSET – AND WE PROMISE THE CONCERT WILL BE GREAT WHEREVER YOU ARE IN THE VENUE!!!
THE NEW ONSALE WILL BE MONDAY 21ST MARCH @ MIDDAY CT
 
6/7: St. Paul, MN
Xcel Energy Center
On Sale: Monday, 3/21 @12pm CDT / 5pm GMT

Strangers passing in the street, by chance two separate glances meet and I am you and what I see is me...

I'm sorry for the off topic, but this event is also in memory of Prince.

Wagen, ziehe die Decke des Wagenleders hoch zu
meinem Kopf, hülle mich in einen Mantel - so daß nur
meine Augen übrig bleiben, mit denen nach Euch ich
greife.

Robert used a purple guitar tonight, in honor of Prince, and that guitar will be auctioned off later this year.

Well, as disintegration says above Robert used a purple guitar, which means it was obviously an official "tribute" by the band, so how on earth could this be "off-topic"?  :?  :)

...and this is by no means a matter of course.It's obvious as well
that I've placed my note timely before the show, unlike disintegration,
though I'm convinced that The Cure should stay in the centre of attention
during their tour and not a different artist like Prince, in that particular respect.
That's why I've said it's possibly 'off-topic'.
If Robert had ignored the facts (stated above), he would have confronted the
band and himself with negative comments in the press, and that can never
be put right.

It was and is not, don't worry!  :)
These topics here are about the gigs and that means every aspect from parking lot, tickets up to fan meetings and so on.
It is a nice touch that Robert & Co. dedicated this to the late Prince. Plus the auction of the purple guitar, which I'm sure will be for a charity.
