Thanks Ulrich... it'll be amazing that SO many will be enjoying it at the same time!
What a beautiful gift from The Cure :)

The SOH says the stream will be available for a few days after the event (so I'll still see it!)  Hope it gets uploaded more permanently somewhere (if it's possible?)

I'm pretty sure someone will upload it somewhere!  :cool

But come on, you do know that watching the stream is much better than actually being there...  ;)

Anyone watching? (A good thing for me: today is a holiday in Germany!)
"23.888 Zuschauer" it says currently.

Setlist updated in the first post of this topic, no surprises compared to yesterday. The streaming happened during working hours so I am looking forward tonight to watch the concert :)

I watched the show on my other computer (better sound, bigger screen). Thanks to The Cure and the organizers for making this possible!

It was so beautiful to watch, has made my day :)

Viewers were mostly around 24.500 while I watched.  :cool

I thought "Same Deep Water..." was emotional, while "Disintegration" was powerful.  :smth023

I've got last night's show on DVD-R, complete, perfect quality.  Somebody here in the states, tell me where to send it and it'll go out today or tomorrow, then you can work out who gets it next.

Homesick and Untitled I found most impressive. Especially Reeves on the keyboard. 😲

Less than 24hrs later and there's more than 250k views 👏👏👏

I'm still processing this 5th and final show. I wasn't wanting it to end, was savouring every moment, and during Untitled everything felt Very present, in the moment, a magical quality ✨💕
It was lovely to hear his comment about Pirate Ships. The day prior I had been listening to and looking up info on the original version, and noticed many people comment about having it sung as a lullaby to them as a child.  So when he said he remembered it from when he was little ...wow how sweet and beautiful. 

I had a late afternoon flight home today, and so decided to go to the airport early in case I may meet them (which I also did after the 2011 Sydney Opera House shows, waited at the airport and met them, and Robert was gracious enough to allow me a minute or so to say "hi!" and "thank you!"
(I think from recollection I also said something like "whatever you do next or wherever you go next ...I'll be there!"  ...afterwards I couldn't help think how creepy such a statement may be! 😂)

This time I met Reeves, Roger and Jason at the airport and they signed a booklet for me :)
Of course I will acknowledge I was hoping to meet Robert again and so a bit sad to hear I missed him (he and Simon apparently had an early flight).

...well I certainly can't dwell in the sadder feelings at a time like this, I was blessed to see all the shows, and I'm seeing them 2 more times this year (Norway and Sweden in August  :)

Also, I was going to post a photo of the signed booklet but can't figure out how. If anyone wants to see it and can tell me how to post photos please let me know!
