Now I'm scared of missing it.

The same feeling grows inside of me because it's almost clear that none of the ex-members
will appear at BST 2018 (and I said the latter is going to be the major event!?!). I really wonder
if anyone from Curefans has got a ticket for MeltDown. No reply to date...

Well I have no idea what's planned and who'll be there or not...
My guess is that CURÆTION-25 will be a special "one-off" with some "friends" (not necessarily ever members of The Cure), while Hyde Park will be more like a "normal" Cure show (each "only" 2 hours though).

For all those who are lucky enough to be able to go (to either show) I hope they will just enjoy the moment, no matter who is there or not.  :cool
For all others: we can look forward to lots of moaning on the net, as soon as the show is over.  :D

The fact that so many other artists and bands already accepted their invitation for MeltDown,
but it's not clear if and how many ex-members accepted theirs. It's still nebulous.

I'd love to see those line-ups too, I'll bet we do get to see at least two of your suggestions!  I hope Perry is there too, he spent 20 years of his life in The Cure, on the crew, as a tech and as a full member of the band.

Robert was saying that RFH will be doom and gloom. Not a word about line-up/s. But that line on the third paragraph of the Guardian interview talked about "ex-band members" performing. And I guess (and hope) the writer had first hand and good info to say that.

No, I thought in terms of "members of bands who play at Meltdown".
As g_erman pointed out, The Guardian article speaks of:
Quote
Smith will close the event under the name Cureation 25 – which promises a lineup of previous bandmates and more
We'll have to wait and see...

It would be very disappointing to see those members only at Meltdown, and not Hyde Park :(

Almost anything is possible, I suppose.  Six days left until we find out!

Or are they? Martin McCarrick played with Kristin Hersh. And Martin McCarrick's pure Glove. Uh-oh.

Do track Severin, Pearl, Andy, Jeannette Landray, Gini Ball, Anne Stephenson AT ONCE.

I do not "rule out" The Glove members. It's just that with above comment I'd meant "friends" from his favourite bands who do play at Meltdown (and thus possibly are still in town).  :cool

Martin McCarrick played with Kristin Hersh.

The question would be: was McCarrick playing with Kristin Hersh at her Meltdown show last night?

Edit: yes, he did!

... a no-frills performance; just her voice, her guitar, and later, the rich addition of Martin McCarrick’s cello. But from the first note to the last, no one is left wanting.

ATTENTION: Martin McCarrick (&wife?) could ALSO be playing(/has already played?) with Kodama at Meltdown.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say Lol, Pearl and Perry will be there in one capacity or another.
