Hope to be there, new house = no spare money so could be a problem.

I wont get any recording gear - I heard about too many people getting refused entry and kicked out in 2000. Hopefully someone will though. I'm up for a major trade for the Adelaide or any other Aussie shows.

Pity no new album to hear live - yet!?

Do we have a five piece yet? I was excited by the way Miami was played, but a keyboard is really needed.

C'mon Adelaide, lets see if we can reach capacity, If Pink can do 4 shows then surely us Cure Fans can go for a sell-out.

Turns out Robert has Relatives in Adelaide

Maybe he should move here to be closer to them, and play for us every week

Getting excited, I'm flying in for this one.  Flight lands 30 minutes before the show starts.

Keep an eye out for me, I'll be dressed in black.

you should make it, Airport is only about 15mins from venue by taxi at that time of night.

I hope to have my Curefans t-shirt on - if it comes in the mail tomorrow!

cant beleive they still haven't tried out a couple of new songs yet :smth011
maybe they just don't want people to hear them until the new album is released, but this means our friends in Oz and the States wont get to hear any of the new stuff on this world tour, very disapointing if that is the case :(

I was at the Miami show and the sound there was horrible.  The sound system was for a DJ set, not a live band.  There were tons of clicks and pops and overall, the sound wasn't that good.  Glad to hear you had a good time...only another 38 days until the Tampa show!

Did I mention something happened with the left hand side audio at the end of IOTWCS and beginning of The Kiss. Porl left the stage while Robert, Simon and Jason kept playing, and a technician was frantically rolling out cable. sounded ok once up again and didnt affect the show - but should show up on any recordings that surface.

I would like to put my hand up for a trade for this show if/when it surfaces.

Security was lax - I could have walked in with anything in my pocket and not got searrched, People were using phones and cameras very indiscreetly. I recorded whole show on my phone  (to aid in presenting a setlist), but could easily have done more, Is different for every show at this venue.

Yeah it was a great show, may write up a review later.  Mikmcc has the setlist spot on.  Bit disappointed in the absence of anything from 17 seconds, Faith, and Bloodflowers, and they didn't play Want either (so no WMS).  It was a greatest hits setlist for a greatest hits crowd.

Porl went off at the start of the kiss, but my take on it was he was having a break, as the second guitar part only starts a minute in.  But yeah, there were some odd sounds coming out towards the of iotwcs so it might have been related.

Man they played loud.  Louder than any concert I've been too before.  May have been the venue, but my ears are still ringing and I have two more shows to get to this week.  I might regret that.

Met up with mikmcc after the show, and he gave me a lift to my hotel which was much appreciated.

A write up would be brilliant! And its really cool that you met up with another curefans.com person! I hope to do the same in Melbourne! But we shall see if it happens or not. I'm glad it's going to be loud! Well I hope the Rod Laver Arena is set up correctly for it anyway! I'm getting so excited! I'm like a kid around Christams time!

Post by: mikmcc on August 07, 2007, 06:05:34
Yes it was very loud

I has singing my lungs out, I couldnt even hear myself, and the person next to me didnt even complain - said they saw my lips moving but heard nothing (but the band)

compared to earlier (2000/1992) shows where you could talk/shout to the person next to you.

I imagine an audience recording shouldnt have too many problems with adjacent clapping/talking.

The sound was good loud, a few moments where feedback was a bit too harsh, and roberts voice was a bit too loud in a few songs (Never Enough comes to mind)

Robert made some comment when re-entering for encores, something about  "... only in australia..." I think he was kicking beer cups (or theri contents) around the stage.

Roberts voice also sounded different, higher pitched? more like his early voice, it was great.
Title: Re: 2007.08.06 Adelaide - Entertainment Centre (Australia)
Post by: mikmcc on August 07, 2007, 06:14:13
4 x Adelaide photos at Chain of Flowers

Note that the back drops for most singles were the single art.

The sped up on-train video footage for Jumping Someone elses train really seemed to speed up the song and was a great way to end

My only negative comment is that the "encores" are obviously preplanned when they have vids set up, I would prefer encores that are quibbled about by the band backstage so we can get obscurities - like new songs perhaps.

But they do!

Quote from: Robert Smith at the start of the first Encore, Adelaide show
We couldn't agree what to play so we're all going to play different songs for you.


I wrote this down right after he said it.

Would Robert lie to you?
Title: Re: 2007.08.06 Adelaide - Entertainment Centre (Australia)
Post by: mikmcc on August 08, 2007, 12:53:22
I was hoping by different songs, he meant different to what we played last night.

I am not complaining, but I think back to 1992, when they played Melbourne and played A Forest, and briefly appeared to start playing a long version to end the show (1 line of additional lyrics) before ending it, then playing Faith. the following night in Adelaide they played a 15 minute version of A Forest, it seemed that it was really decided as they went along.

I guess such sponteneity would effect other aspects of the show like lighting/effects, which rely on a more organised set.

By all accounts, I am still loving it 2 days later, and I agree 100% with most of the reviews on Chain of Flowers.

Welcome imaginarynancyboy

I haven't seen a recording of this one anywhere yet. That's not to say there isn't one, but there maybe someone who has it only for trading at the moment.
Someone here should know if that's the case though.
Happy posting.

Cheers.

DevoBlue may be able to elabrate on these

Robert made some comment before Lovesong - Unclear what he said, the word special was mentioned.

improvised “australian girls” in The Figurehead

Before 1st encore
"Thankyou, sorry we were so long coming back, but you know how it is…. f*cking miles away…    ..?..  … & we couldn’t agree what to play, so we’re going to play different songs for you."


Before 2nd encore
"Only in Australia you know… at the end I’ll be all ..?..  ..?.. dried out   Fuckin hell"


After 2nd encore
"Thank you very much good night….  Thank you…. ….   See you again"


thats all I got

Woops, I stopped paying attention to this thread.

He made some comment about the Adelaide beer and another comment about how long it takes him to get used to being in front of an audience.  But I didn't tape the show and the only quote I wrote down was the one mentioned above.
