Title: 2007.07.27 Naeba 'Fuji Rock Festival' (Japan)
Post by: bomber2007 on March 12, 2007, 02:04:19
Does this seem odd ?, or maybe just obvious ? 
 
The official Cure website has 2 new photos in the photo gallery section: 
http://www.thecure.com/about/ 
If you click on the 2 new photos the caption under them says "Robert Japan - Fuji". 
 
Before I knew about those 2 photos I personally thought it was odd the way Robert mentioned Japan in the recent RAG MAGAZINE interview. 
Robert was talking about something like how he sees a lot of places with The Cure and he said something like "we go to America and Japan", and I thought it was really odd of him to cite Japan because they haven't been to Japan since 1984".   
 
So I figured that Robert's got Japan on the mind, 
now these 2 new photos have appeared....

the pictures are renamed as " Cure Fuji Festival" , it seems like an ad for the fuji festival...
or the pictures to be utilized for a "news"

Post by: [labyrinth] on March 13, 2007, 21:22:12
the Fuji is from 07/27 to 07/29 and there are strong rumors...they'll play there...
but as always, until it's confirmed on The Cure site...that's just "rumor"
Title: Re: Cure - JAPAN - in last week of July 2007 ? ? ?
Post by: lostflower4 on March 13, 2007, 23:44:53
Seems believable, but I still have doubts much will be happening this year Cure-wise. :?
Title: Re: Cure - JAPAN - in last week of July 2007 ? ? ?
Post by: Tof on March 14, 2007, 02:06:19
Perhaps this rumor can be possible !!!
Just to play some new song live before making big show over the world !!!
Title: Re: Cure - JAPAN - in last week of July 2007 ? ? ?
Post by: drowning on March 14, 2007, 09:20:50
maybe this is really true,
because robert has a sense for japan ...
1984 vhs - cure in japan
2000 - coming up as an extra track bloodflowers/japan release

1985 .. kyoto song ... after this song the kyoto protokoll is named.....

If The Cure are playing here in Australia in early August as Robert's post seems to indicate I'd say it's quite possible they will play the annual "Spleandour In The Grass" Festival in Byron Bay which is on August 4th - 5th :

Didn't they do some press stop in Japan in '87 for the release of KMKMKM? I think I have a TV interview as filler on some DVD somewhere.

Must have stung something awful when they went back to Japan -- and didn't play a show!

 :evil:

Seriously, though, it's cool that they are finally going back. To play.

yes they did several TV interviews in japan in may 1987, at least three different ones i know about.
the one found as a filler at the end of the toronto '96 dvd is this one:
http://www.impressionofsounds.com/tvsion/23-87-88-13c.html

these japanese interviews are pretty strange because the interviewers very pretty clueless about the cure and mostly didn't really know what to say/ask... :roll:

Christ....I hope that was only done because it was:

a) A festival
b) strict 90 minute curfew

That represents just about every song I do NOT want to hear anymore (except for maybe Out of This World).

 :smth011

let us truly hope so. :smth087
from the fourth song of the set onwards that's just plain awfulllll...
(or let us hope that 27th july is like the april fool's day in japan and thus the whole list is just a joke!)

anyway, thanks nevyn for posting the news for us!

I like the idea of One Hundread Years closing the set.  However, I don't see how it really fits when everything leading up to it is pop.  No new songs, nothing old that hasn't been played in a while.  What a waste of something that could've been quite special for a lot of Cure fans that hadn't seen the band in so many years.

I don't know about these Porcupine dudes. I know I already wasted too much time listening to their most recent album. Sorry, but I thought it was generally dreadful. :smth015 Maybe their other stuff is better? I've kind of lost my motivation to find out...

But I have to say that I recently discovered 65 Days of Static, and I think they're an incredible band. :rocker

Maybe I'll just go to a few of their shows this fall and leave before The Cure's set...

Kind of reminds me of 2 summers ago when I was living in Ireland.  I lived right next to Marlay Park, and Coldplay was playing there with Interpol as the opener.  I saw Interpol and attempted to leave.  It took me nearly 20 minutes just to leave.  I think I was the only one leaving- security was giving me a hell of a time!

According to my mp3 player, that setlist is only 56 minutes long.  The report that posted it said they were on stage nearly 2 hours.  Conclusion, there are a lot more non-greatest hit songs that he didn't bother to mention.

I think you guys should calm down a bit :)

Please notice two facts here

1) They didnt play in Japan since more than 20 years

2) They played in a festival, not in a Cure show alone. Commercial songs are expected. And let me tell you, for people who didnt see the band in such a long time, I am sure they are more than happy. Trust me, I would be the same happy if they played wathever they want in Peru cos we never saw them here :).

I guess for US and europeans fans, the feelings must be mixed -The Cure always play there-, and because of that, I am sure the setlist in such places might be different. Let's wait a bit. I hope we can get a bootleg of this soon ;)

no. just like someone already said in this thread (i think), they aren't touring yet and they surely have no album to promote yet - this was only a summer festival gig. i wasn't expecting any new songs songs either. i'm glad the setlist was actually a bit better than the first draft although i was hoping for some surprises (i mean some old songs). a fool's hope, of course.

Great to see Kyoto Song.
Was played 6 times back at the 1998 festivals and before then was back in 1989.

Was the Intro:Tape just the short 20 second intro like at the 2005 shows & Royal ALbert Hall in 2006 or did it go for the full 3 minutes like on the Wish Tour ?

So it was a festival gig.  That means they can't play new stuff?  :?  What about the 1995 Festivals and early 1996 festivals?  They played Want, Jupiter Crash, and Mint Car at every gig.  I think a festival would have been the perfect place to debut at least one new song.  Surely they have a single in mind, one that would have fit in nicely with this singles driven set.

Setlist isnt that bad, dont forget, it wasnt a Cure event so theyve got to play to people who might not be there just for them.
Im surpised they didnt play any new songs, it wouldve been good to hear something. I guess they will when they do proper Cure shows in the next few weeks.

Its interesting reading everyones comments about the setlist being predictable, to be fair they vary it more than they used to (look at the Kissing Tour - same set nearly every night) and they vary their setlists more than any other band i can think of, just look at Depeche Mode, it must be quite disapointing knowing that they'll play the same set every night.

The thing is, theyre still here, and im just grateful for that, if nothing else.

Heck, I think I might have been happy if they played Jingle Bells. At least they'd be playing something different for once. :lol:

So it was a festival gig.  That means they can't play new stuff?  :?  What about the 1995 Festivals and early 1996 festivals?  They played Want, Jupiter Crash, and Mint Car at every gig.  I think a festival would have been the perfect place to debut at least one new song.  Surely they have a single in mind, one that would have fit in nicely with this singles driven set.

 

sure they did, but 95/96 was over ten years ago. there's a big difference between the cure then and the cure now, to me.
and hasn't predictability been like their second nature in the last few years? (ever since the dream tour, how many times have they really really surprised us?)

@druide: sorry to hear that! i hope you enjoyed rest of "my homeland" anyway... sushi was good yes? ;)

 :roll: ;)

But they were playing it in Japan!

I think it proves that they actually *did* put a little thought into the setlist after all. :shock:

I tend to agree with the reviewer on COF who pointed out that most of those standard songs haven't been played in that country ever.  Surely if you've never seen The Cure before, you'd be happy with that set, wouldn't you?

Yes I'm sure. :rocker:

I don't know how people got the impression they were going to play the first two Join The Dots cds as their basic set. I'd love if they did that. But let's face it, most of the audience probably (not only a Japanese one) would be wondering what is going on. :lol:

OK guys, nice to all meet you there, but I just decided to register to try to stop all the anger :smth076 regarding the setlist.

I posted that quick review on COF on my way back to Tokyo yesterday. I have been living here for the last 5 years.

The main thing about the show in Fuji Rock is that : Japan is still an island!! And foreigners have no clue of what Japanese music market is all about...
The best example is KARAOKE. This is still the main entertainement here, with 8 floors'buildings of Karaoke rooms in virtualy every streets in Tokyo. You can find about 100.000 foreign songs, mainly in english, all the time. But... no CURE songs ever...!!!!
In Japan, I met people who never heard about Mickael Jackson :o; Many don't know that YMCA is an American song, since a cover had been made by a japanese singer in the 80s ???... The Charts are still dictated by Japanese Boys Bands :smth087...

So, do you really think that CURE can show up after 23 years and play "FAITH", in front of a crowd that hardly know anything about them but the "Greatest Hits"??
That would have been an artistic and image suicide... Please remember that Fuji Rock was NOT a specific CURE show.
During "From the Edge", I started notice parts of the audience staring at each other, like "what's happening with that endless song...?" And yes I saw a girl sleeping during "100 Years"... no big deal, Japanese people keep on sleeping everywhere, anytime, whenever possible, specially in Tokyo :smth015 Kind of a cultural thing.

That said, the show what the best it could have been in that circonstances. The popsongs rocked the crowd :smth041, and the trilogy "Inbetween Days, Friday I'm In Love, Just Like Heaven" drove everybody crazy!! On the other hands, they managed to show an heavier side at the end of the main set that worked perfectly. The cameramen where charmed by Porl guitar and kept focus on him... forgetting Simon on the other hand :(

So please, all readers and Cure fans, please try not to forget about the "cultural" aspects of the following asian shows. They are not playing in Europe or America, and expectations are different in this corner of the world.

Love the CURE!!!

I suggest you give Silversun Pickups a listen.  Just saw them again last night (5th time now) and they kicked some ass  :rocker  My recording will be up on dime an a few days should anyone want to check them out.  8)

yes, look at the last smiley in my post please...

(i was just thinking, what if the cure ever came to play again in finland, what would they - or better to say, what could they play here? people don't know their newer stuff, people hardly remember them at all here... i can't even remember when i heard a cure song in radio here. the last time they really got radio play must have been around the wish tour(?). so... greatest hits is would be, i suppose.)

Well, people I'll get a little bored by discussing all the new development trends in Roberts mind!! Of course, everybody is looking for the new CURE - CD and HIT (not commercially at all!!) But this band is now existing for nearly 30 years - be thankfull for every new cd or song they perform... If it's not you style, you can either post a comment her or look for the next performance..

Judging by the sound quality there, I'd say it's more like the work of a $50 cell phone — recorded off the big screen. :oops:

I read somewhere that the sound guy records all of the shows [at least the Australian shows] and gives the CD to Robert to he can critique it later on..

oh to get our hands on those CDs.... sigh.....

Robert: if you're reading this, perhaps you can upload the shows for us.. or just drop the CDs over to my place... any time mate, any time...
