  1. 1. If The Cure were to headline would you be there? I'm intrigued due to the varied opinions of them on here.

    • Yes - Definitely, regardless of who else is on the other stages.
      184
    • More than likely - Depending on strength of the clashes on other stages.
      251
    • Unlikely - Know a couple of songs but there would probably be something else on you'd watch instead.
      190
    • No - Never been a fan so will definitely be elsewhere.
      52

Course. It's the Cure.

What he said. Bob seemed quite perky and they sounded fabulous. :)

Southside stream if anyone's interested. I'm only going to watch the first few tunes to see if there's much variation. They have a much shorter set time for this one than usual. https://www.southside.de/en/

Still played two hours twenty minutes. Mixed up the order of the songs a bit and dropped One Hundred Years in favour of Let's Go To Bed added to the encore. I wonder if the billed two hour Glastonbury set will actually end up being longer

I'm oddly at peace about the chopping and changing now. It's given me a chance to go and get healthily reacquainted with a band I've long loved but hold certain eras (Disintegration, the early goth singles) above the rest. Now I'm familiar with a much wider selection and to be honest, even if they are going to leave off a few personal favourites, I'm better equipped for it and much less complacent than before. And if they do return some from the bench, it'll feel all the more exciting for everyone.

Bring it on.

Aye, last night seemed to be billed as 1hr40 but came out longer. I don't think there's that flexibility at Glasto.

Foo Fighters went on thirty minutes longer than their allotted time in 2017 the world didn't cave in. Bring back the post-midnight headliner finishes I wasn't around early enough to see!!

 

Think I'll be watching this on the TV with a bottle of wine, hugging a cushion.

Enjoy. I was quite fond of the crowd with this one. Lots of bopping. :)

I meant the Glastonbury set next week! I saw them at Leeds Fest in 2012, and that festival was a special time for me. I don't know what I'd have watched on Sunday if I'd got a ticket, but as a spectacle to be enjoyed from the comfort of my home, The Cure wins out handily. Just picturing that wide camera shot from the back of the crowd as the lights twirl around. Hope it's beautiful in that Pyramid field for everyone! xxx

I'm a bit disappointed that Plainsong has been dropped as an opener after their Disintegration shows...but on the flipside there's still 2h+ of killer material coming up so I reckon I'll cope 😎

SDS is a much better opener, imo. Especially for fests.

Yeah I know what you mean. I think I've just watched so many Plainsong openers from festivals over the past decade that I can't imagine anything else! But you're right.

 I find Plainsong is a bit underwhelmimg at times, whereas SDS always starts the show off in a great way. It is also surprisingly heavy!

The Kiss would be a blinder of an opener

A much more Pyramid friendly opening at INmusic on Wednesday going by this setlist. Hope that continues for the rest of this tour.

PUSH!!!! 😍

It's actually a very similar setlist to what they have been playing all tour, but re-ordered. Still don't like Plainsong as an opener mind!

Here we go here we go! 

Bit nervous for this - I've been most excited for the Cure for the last six months but we've had two pretty spectacular Pyramid headline sets so far... Expectations are going to be high. 

Looks like Plainsong is back off the menu 😔

Robert smith’s voice after all this time sounds exactly the same as on record. Beautiful.

Sounding good, but the crowd is really quiet subdued. Just seems so quiet for a headliner.
