I have compiled a list of places of interest for Cure fans based on Lol's book "Cured". I will add a description later (when necessary) about the relevance of such places. To my knowledge, the ones crossed do not longer exist.

Note: this list is continuously updated! if there's a place that you think is missing on this list please leave a comment.

and I'm surrounded by "damaged" people

well...you gotta change that. get surrounded by people who make you a better person (personally, professionally) and keep distance of those who don't. life's already hard and having the wrong people around you will just make it harder.

General The Cure Discussion / Fans on stage
« Last post by dsanchez on August 10, 2018, 19:30:25 »
It was lovely to see how Gene Simmons invited this fan to the stage to sing Kiss's most known song. Of course, personality wise he is VERY different than Robert and I hardly think something like this will ever happen with The Cure, but while watching this I was wondering... :oops:



Now I remember that back in 2002 I was in Eindhoven for a Wayne Hussey gig and he took songs requests from the audience! This probably would be more doable in The Cure than having a fan on stage, but who knows?

If you ever listened to music/lyrics, you have been warned. ;)
Examples: "Love Hurts" (Nazareth)
"Love can mend your life, but it can also break your heart" (The Police)

or the most known one, "Love Will Tear Us Apart" (again) ;)

I feel like a bad fan, as I purchased the book about two months ago (it was released nearly 2 years ago!) and just started reading it last days (I am in the half)... so my advise to those who didn't read the book: do NOT make the same mistake as me. Please DO buy the book and read it asap! Lol is a great storyteller and I was immediately captured by the tales surrounding the beginning of The Cure, the weird places they played, the mysteriousness of Robert, how England was back then, etc... I am looking forward to finishing the book this weekend. Can't wait for Part II!

Hi desintegration and welcome to curefans.com! hope you will like it here. I am pretty sure you will have the chance to see The Cure in the future. Robert said in the band's last concert "see you again very soon" which hints for gigs probably in 2019 and if that happens, you can be sure they will play the U.S.

Welcome again and take cure! :)
