  1. Truly a ‘fans band’ for live shows, too bad it’s in London…too far to travel. Hoping that next trilogy show comes around in 2015.

  2. The real surprise would be if they made a decent album for the first time in 25 years…

  3. I have to agree, a good Cure album is long overdue unfortunately.

  4. I hope that the surprise is that they drop Reeves and Jason and bring back Porl and Boris. Then this could be interesting. They could also drop their lousy metal guitars and return to playing classy instruments, but a change in personnel would be the best start.

  5. merci, the cure, excusez moi je ne sais pas un mot d’anglais, mais pour être devin vous portez la bonne étoile,alors bonne continuation pour des lustres et des lustres

  6. You mean Pearl and Boris. Jason rocks. The Schecters are rad and Reeves Spacehawk is sex.

    Boris…he was 22 years ago people. Let it go.

    • I’ve made my peace with Jason, but will always wish for Boris. There is something about his live drumming that cannot be matched. YoutTube has a Thompson Twins live concert, and Boris was the tour drummer (just before he joined The Cure) and the songs sound so much better with him. Same for The Cure stuff.

    • The Schecters are shite. Compare and contrast the trilogy shows at RAH/Sydney Opera House with any of their recent US festival shows. Or anything they’ve played from Disintegration of late. You’ll hear a marked difference, particularly in the parts that should be played by the beautiful Fender Bass VI and are instead massacred by the Slipknot/Korn wiry-ness of the Schecter.

  7. William Nothing

    They should do some Smiths covers
