Hi All, I managed to panic buy 3 standing tickets for Mon night but my sister and I are taking our 72 year old dad for his birthday (he has always wanted to see them play live!!!!) and I don't think he'll be able to stand that long! I didn't know if anyone with seated tickets for any night fancied a swap? I'm just a bit worried it will be too much for him. Thanks guys :-)

Hello guys,

I was wondering if anyone has/knows of anyone who has 2 tickets for any of the London dates? I'm being overly optimisitic but it is worth a shot! Also I'm new to this website and don't really understand how to work it so if you could email me on erintogneri@hotmail.co.uk that would be great.

Thank you x

provided that you have already your ticket, being there 1 hour before doors open should be enough. if you want to be really close to Bob, 2 hours should suffice.

some practical info for those going to today's (Monday) gig:

- No-one checked ID/passport to verify identity on the ticket. of course, bring it just in case.
- Doors open 6:30 PM
- AATT started 7:15 PM. The Cure started 8:15 PM and concert finished 11:15 PM
- Cure T-shirts cost about 20GBP
- For those going to the fan meeting, The Distillers bar is just 5' walk from the venue.
- It's enough to arrive 5:30 PM if you want to see The Cure from the second row. If you want to see   them from first row, arrive between 4:30PM - 5:30PM

Enjoy!

Indeed they started in the same way they did back in 1986, with Shake Dog Shake and Piggy In The Mirror. I agree with you about Robert's voice, it was one of the highlights of the show. I am glad "Big Hits" were reduced and I am very surprised Friday I'm In Love was not included. Don't remember when was the last time this song wasn't played in Cure gigs.

apart from the entire The Top album.Unbelievable!
