Music that is played before concerts
« on: November 11, 2016, 19:48:04 »
I realise it may seem strange but I can't resist asking whether there's a list of songs that were played before the shows? I haven't found it mentioned anywhere... Recently, they've played some Cocteau Twins songs but I have no idea if the band picked the tracks themselves or somebody else had done it for them.

Well, Robert is very likely the person who choose what to play before AND during the concert :) and he said that Cocteau Twins is the "most romantic music ever" so I was not surprised at all about this choice.

They played "Sugar Hiccup" and "Garlands" by the Cocteau Twins and I can't remember the others at the moment. Maybe someone else can help to my bad memory!

Yep, I agree. I do remember from the "Dream Tour 2000", when I found out that the intro music before the band went on stage was "Adagio for Strings", I went out and got this on cd.  :smth020

Also, first time I saw them, the mix of songs played between support band & Cure seemed to be chosen by Robert/the band, as it was e.g. Siouxsie & the Banshees, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors ("Hello I Love You", which they'd covered).
but memory's not life... and it's not love.
