Yep, I'd was thinking that about Lol too... he has his own band so wouldn't rejoin for long. Surely it's just going to be a short tour of their first three albums? I'd love it if Roger was back for good though.

So excited news :) Looking forward to the confirmations.
If this is going to be true, this is so great for the Australian people ... That should mean a very special Cure Gig in only 3 weeks time ??? Much better than the 10 months waiting for Bestival :-D

The Sydney Morning Herald published this today:

"As part of the third Vivid Live Festival, beginning May 27 and curated this year by Sydney entrepreneur, tour promoter and label head Stephen Pavlovic, the Cure in almost their original line-up will play their first three albums in sequence and in full"

There was a rumour that Robert and Porl had a strong discussion after Coachella resulting in Porl leaving the band. I think the article of the news papper means the band is going to play with the three imaginary boys (Bob, Simon and Lol) plus Roger and Jason ("almost" their original line-up). It would be great to see Boris, though. THAT would be a huge surprise.

LOL, I forgot to read this part:

"In two nights labelled Reflections, on May 31 and June 1, the band's mainstay, songwriter and owner of the worst applied make-up in rock, Robert Smith, will be joined by Simon Gallup on bass and Jason Cooper on drums for the performance of the 1979 album Three Imaginary Boys The original drummer, Lol Tolhurst - now playing keyboards and percussion - will join in for the albums Seventeen Seconds and Faith"

:shock:

Still, I think Roger will join the band. Let's wait...

I don't like the idea that Porl could be gone ....
It's great about the former members, but it's give me some strange thoughts ...

I would love to hear this set-up ...
Still no confirmation ...

Could this for Real?

Wow wow wow, lots of strange news and rumours...  :shock:  :shock:
Porl out of the band? Roger back in? Lol for a few shows?
We'll have to wait for official news.  8)
But keep in mind, Roger is going to play "WaveGothikTreffen" (huge Goth festival) in Leipzig, hence the black clothes (and he claims the tambourine was for his brother).
But Christmas falls late now, flatter and colder
