Jodging by past shows for myspace, the cure should play for at least an hour and a half - will be interesting to see what a trimmed down set contains / maybe an indicator for the O2 show in London next February?

I went.
We were in line and some car pulls up and this guy asks who is playing. Someone says The Cure, he says s*** and starts texting. It was Jared Leto's brother.
So Jared was there, The Killers, Ryan Gosling, and Kirsten Dunst.
I missed Leo.

The show was fantastic. I had to move a few times because I'm short and people kept getting in my was so I finally squeezed to the 2nd row off the side on Simon's side. During Freakshow he looks at me and says 'how are you?' haha I guess after seeing my fat face in the crowd so much...

I was soo excited to hear Hungy Ghost but it sounded totally flat to me.
Jumping Someone Else's Train is so fun to hear live.
yay fun night.

Yeah, again and again...

Simon and his damn pop songs  :roll:

However, I swear most people thought they were going to end with Boys Don't Cry and call it a night.  At least it felt like that since it looked the majority of the crowd wasn't much into it.  As soon as JSET came on the crowd erupted!  Seriously, massive difference in the room!  :rocker  The level excitement continued until the boys left for good.  I got a pretty big rush from the crowd/band feeding off one another.  F***ing crazy!  :rocker :rocker :rocker

My niece took a few pictures on her sidekick. I hated not having a camera but lots of people had them and used them and was not told to stop.

How big was this place? was a kind of a T&CC concert like in 1991 or the venue was larger?

It is a very small club.  Maybe 500 people?  200 fans/normal people and 300 or so guests/a-list types if they all showed up.

Wish I was there. That must have been a memorable night.
