The curfew was actually 12 midnight.  According to 65dos's sound engineer, Local 1 (the union in NYC) charges the band a $60K fine if they exceed the curfew at all...even if they are one minute past midnight (but, with how weak the US dollar is right now, isn't that something like 3 pounds sterling?  :lol:).  I was hoping to get Faith after A Forest, but will settle for Forever.  Even the sound guys thought Faith was coming.

Sullen, that's a great shot!  I was front row at Sasquatch, but my photos aren't as good.  What kind of camera do you use?

Do you have any shots of Robert's guitars?  My dad is super interested in what some of the new stickers say.

I am so jealous of those of you who got to go.  A couple weeks ago, me and my dad almost ebayed some tickets for MSG and RCMH and looked into flights, but it was ultimately too expensive (if we had decided a week earlier, we could've got flights for free through reward points, and totally would've gone!).  Now, part of me can't help but wish that I just would've put it all on my credit card.  I'd be in debt, sure, but... man, those were great concerts.  Especially last night.
I always lock the door when I creep by daylight. I can't do it at night, for I know John would suspect something at once.

There's others of him playing them, which will prob give a closer view of the stickers.

The Tour is over  :(

I hope very soon we have info of new dates and maybe another tour for support the album.

Great US Tour, very good memories.

I think we can have faith to the near future.

Good things are coming soon for Cure fans around the world.

I´m trusting in that

 :D
...There was nothing in the world that i ever wanted more than to feel you deep in my heart...

My wife and I went last night and were blown away, she's now a full out diehard Curehead.  We bought 4 shirts, two girlie shirts and 2 men's shirts, oh and a tour book too.  I always empty out the wallet at Cure shows.  I couldn't believe they played Forever.  That's such a rare song in North American shows.  Radio City is such an excellent and appropriately sized venue for a band like The Cure.  Even better, they played a couple of songs from Pornography.  But we didn't get to hear, Cold, Figurehead or Pornography which are our favorite songs.  No matter, Robert went up the balcony again like in 1996 at Radio City during the Swing Tour.  He even said "I can't f****** believe I went back up here again."  Haha, too much.  If I had to change around a few songs I would've put Plainsong as the intro (with that excellent guitar sound from Porl instead of synth), Shake Dog Shake, Cold, Figurehead and Pornography to end the show.  "I must fight this sickness."

Lastly, its possible that we may see another tour after the album is released in September.  They seem to enjoy touring and making loads of money.  :lol:

Is there any chance of these guys releasing on their website like copies of their shows on mp3 or cd format?  It would be great to just pick your show and listen to it in your car.  Or even other shows that had a setlist you may prefer but could not attend.

Gorgeous pictures, sullen and especially Olivier.  Thank you for sharing.  Even though I managed to catch The Cure on the 4Tour, I still feel jealous that I missed this Radio City Music Hall show.

A fantastic tour.  A legendary band.

Thanks!  Yeah, it's easier to see the stickers when he's playing, usually.  He added new stickers since we saw them (and took pictures).  We took hundreds of pictures, so I know what it's like to go through them all.  I'll definitely look at your album when it gets up and running.  If you're interested at all in my Sasquatch or BC album, I'll post the links.

I have a Canon PowerShot A530.  Your camera rocks the pants off of mine.  We got some fantastic pictures, but my dad still says that we're going to buy better cameras before we see The Cure again, haha.  (We like to spend money on "important" things like this like we have it or something.)
I always lock the door when I creep by daylight. I can't do it at night, for I know John would suspect something at once.
