Well what does everyone think they'll play tonight? Im guessing Kyoto and Walk will stay in for obvious reasons  ;)......
Id expect a few surpises, they have much longer to play.

I don't necessarily think we'll be hearing new songs on every show this tour anyway.  They've only rehearsed 3 new ones.

170 min, great show, a very amazing Primary !!!

interested to hear that - i hope porl's presence might have made them beat some sweat out of themselves and try to play it a little faster, as it should be...
much better setlist imo, great for the crowds in hong kong for sure.

well, hopefully Robert loses himself in Chinese Art soon + plays Figurehead for everyone in Hong Kong...

he did!  :smth023

wow is that hot in Hong Kong, 30°C at 23h ( we got in Berlin the whole day only 16°C, brrrr)

I am so jealous.  I wish it was only 16°C here in the Philadelphia area.  I just saw the weather forecast and it is supposed to be around 36°C (96°F) and 90-95% humidity by this weekend! :( :smth011 :smth096

I think I need to book my vacation to Antarctica now....

Yeah, it's equally brutal around here. Always so damn extreme — one way or the other!

Yes, some pics please. So far, our album "Asian tour" in the Gallery (http://www.curefans.com/index.php?action=gallery) is empty  :?

Also, a little bit dissapointing that Asian fans don't publish any video in youtube  :?

I was doing a search of The Cure in youtube for the shows in Japan and China and find zero results. Surprise me that fans from such countries -with all the technology they have- don't publish/share anything. When Roger Waters came here you could find at least a hundred videos of his show in Peru, despite Peru is a non-developed country, different like Japan or China. I hope this changes in Singapore, cause so far, it's very dissapointing to find so few info about these shows in Asia.

i've noticed the same. so little info seems to get from there to here that i've been wondering if we even live on the same planet... :?

no you don't, believe me. i've surely never been to antarctica but i live close enough to the other pole, the northern one... hahaha

as it was posted on another Cure forum:

"First Fan Review from HongKong:

The expo centre wasn't full - about 2/3 full maybe a bit less. It's a hard venue to fill in Hong Kong - the only ones I've seen do it were Coldplay. The crowd were great though, and it did feel "full" because everyone was really into the music. The sound quality was great, the guitars were really good - in fact the sound was the best I've heard at a cure gig and way better than other concerts at that venue. It will go down as one of the best concerts I've ever been to. I'm so pleased they came to Hong Kong. I remember sitting in my friends tiny house in Upminster, UK, listening to three imaginary boys. I never imagined I'd still be listening so many years later in Hong Kong - but I'm glad I am!"
