Hello fellow Curefans
« on: January 22, 2018, 16:36:55 »
For some time I have been reading this wonderful! website on and off and it's a joy to read and learn more about The Cure and the fan stuff altogether.
I live in Belgium and it is only quite recently that The Cure entered my life and keeps overwhelming me ever since :)
Early 2017.. (I know  :roll:) when I was wandering about again on YouTube I got this EPIC! version of 'A Forest' https://youtu.be/hnVldyHRcjU in my suggestion board and kept replaying this song again and again and again...and that was the beginning of me diving into the tremendous repertoire of this wonderful band. I knew the well known singles of the band before but for some unknown reason never got into the band before that night early 2017.
Since then I've been delving into the music and lyrics and have come to know writers and poets and beautiful words and so on... :) It is -still- an inspirational trip!
The Cure gives me comfort, joy and excitement and has been inspiring on so many levels.
I am grateful.

And now I have a ticket for their birthdayparty!

@helloimageifonly welcome to curefans.com! We're glad to have you have you here :)

That version of "A Forest" is in my humble opinion THE definitive version. There was nothing like that ever since. The Wish Tour was a very memorable tour and the best live sounding The Cure that I remember.
Strangers passing in the street, by chance two separate glances meet and I am you and what I see is me...

Thank you! I am glad to be here!
You know when I found that version, I sent it to some friends the same night and they thought it was 'a litte too long' or 'good' while just I hear build-ups and climaxes and feeling and it almost literally lifts me up! So that was the reason I searched a fansite :)

Did you go to a concert of the Wish Tour? On YouTube there is some great!!! footage of this tour. Indeed they sound perfect!

Hello image, sing me a line from your favourite .... hang on, that was something different.  ;)

Hello & welcome!

That is my fave version of A Forest, too! (Even with additional lyrics!)  :smth023
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

No but in the e-mail I got after paying it says that the ticket will be sent later.
'Will be sent no later than 3 days prior to the event'..
This is my first overseas show but I am guessing everything will work out fine. Have the Eurostar booked, a place to sleep and order confirmation for the ticket. YAY  :lol:
