like many people said above, currently the band is
- repeating set lists
- using terrible guitars which destroys their live sound
- incapable of finding a good drummer
- badly missing a keyboard player

Most of the things you list here are the thoughts of (some) Cure fanatics. 80% or more of people who attend any concert are just the "average people". They don't know about setlists, model of guitars or the current members in the band (besides Bob).

So the "time to call it quits" thought might be ok for a tiny group of die hard Curefans, but for many fans (including me and others I can see) and the vast majority of non-Cure fans The Cure is a band that should continue playing, just as any other "big" band.

Totally agree !

With all that said, I really have no desire to see the band live again.

I wonder what made change lostflower4's mind as he did a transatlantic trip to attend all three The Cure Christmas gigs in London last year ;)

The fact that there is a keyboard on stage?  ;)
