Title: 2007.08.10 Sydney - Entertainment Centre (Australia) **Sold Out**
Post by: bomber2007 on June 21, 2007, 15:00:14
A 2nd show in Sydney will be on the 9th August.
(the 2nd show on sale will be the first show they play as Black Sabbath are playing at the same venue the day after the first show that went on sale).

Why can't you get a ticket for the 2nd Sydney show ?
That shouldn't be too hard to get tickets for (I don't think the 2nd show will sell out)...

oh yeah, if you go to red eye - make sure you visit both stores, they have 2 in the city: a main one, and a smaller one
i like the smaller one better - cheaper, good selection, and second hand
hope that helps

Apparently The Cure's playing a "Free MySpace Concert" the same day!!!!???!!!

MySpace has very limited information and a million people bitching about it in some forum... no details though... sorry...

LOL yeah, I've just had a semi whinge :smth011 in the Melb. bit of this forum about this myspace 'secret show'... I guess they chose Sydney to do it in as there is a greater demand for them there. Fans now have another chance to catch them - FOR FREE too I might add! :rocker Apparently if you don't already know how these 'secret shows' work, The Cure's myspace people will post a bulletin detailing when and where. And as it's free, it's first in best dressed! You do have to be a friend of The Cure's obviously to get the bulletin... I reckon it would be worth going to as I think it will be a smaller crowd and therefore a more intimate gig. I just wish I could go too it. So all you Sydney-siders, think yourselves lucky, and try and get in! If someone does make it in.. I expect a full report to be posted here, so we can all "try" and experience it too! ;)

I'm wishing I was setup for taping.  It's the sort of gig that can miss out on taping all together.

I screamed faith so loudly at robert after the first encore and during close to me that he did hear me both times, but to no avail, as expected.  I am so tired, I'll write more later. maybe.

very nice to see how beautiful you are and disintegration being played. and plainsong too...

but us or them? why? :(
i'd already hoped they had buried that somewhere that sun doesn't shine! i don't know why they keep playing it... it's rather decent (or at least listenable) on the album because you can actually hear what the guitars are playing there. but it's always been nothing but a couple of minutes of tedious and pointless noise-making when played live. an undetailed mess - and it's amystery to me why they do it because that's not what the cure is about...(?)

I've got to agree with you here.  It's an okay album track, but blows live.  One would think they might mix in a few other songs from the self titled ablum instead of the same three over and over and over...  At least they through it in at the beginning instead of the end.  And speaking of the end, BDC was back in the final spot.  Still, looks like it was a fantastic show.

haha yes it was but i consciously kept my mouth shut so that i wouldn't make people pissed by complaining about the same old things over and over again... hahaha  :-D

Robert said something like 'you can sing along if you know this one, and that goes for me too'.  Sounded great, but no, I didn't sing along, much.

I must be in the minority as I preferred Thursday's set, myself. Possibly because it was the first show and I didn't know what they were going to play.
I really did enjoy How Beautiful You Are and Elise. They were unexpected, so nice touches.  The crowd definitely had better vibe though

I preferred the 3IB encore from Thursday though as the energy of it really cartwheeled along.

So WTF happened to the Entertainment Centre?

Last time I went drinks were restricted to a roped in section around the bars *outside* the inner sanctum.

For the second Sydney concert I had to contend with the people next to me arriving an hour late, and then proceeding to go for drinks every 10 mins..and thanks too also to the person behind me who spilt beer all down my back as they stumbled past everyone trying to get to their seats.

Compared to that, the scuffle that broke out near us during Just Like Heaven on the first night seemed tolerable.

The constant movement through both shows of people going to the bar was really disappointing and distracting.

Ah cheers billee! (fuzzy feelings sent to you through the cosmos! - LOL thats so wanky!! ;)) I no someone else was lookin' for Melb. But I didn't say anything... not my place to really! So maybe if you feel like being nice to another - read through the Melb. posts!?! (I think that is were I read it!)I'm so hopelessly useless with this downloading/burning crap! :cry: So I can be of no further assistance, and will just go now! :D
