IS THIS
WE WILL HAVE FINISHED THE NEW RECORD BY THE TIME WE DO THIS ULTRA FESTIVAL... (I HOPE!)
THIS MIAMI SHOW WILL BE OUR FIRST SHOW OF THE YEAR - BUT NOT OUR LAST...
I NOT SURE HOW LONG WE WILL GET TO PLAY - MORE THAN 90 MINUTES I HOPE... IT COULD BE 2 HOURS... WE ARE YET TO SORT THIS OUT...
HOWEVER: I AM PRETTY SURE OUR SET WILL REFLECT THE FACT THAT WE ARE AT A DANCE FESTIVAL...
WE ARE STILL DECIDING WHAT TO DO AFTER IT - WHERE TO PLAY AND WHEN - AND AS SOON AS WE HAVE FINALISED OUR PLANS I WILL BE SURE TO POST THE BIG PICTURE SCHEDULE HERE FIRST...

AND THAT IS ALL I KNOW

AND BEFORE ANYONE PUTS 2 AND 2 TOGETHER AND COMES UP WITH 4 (?)...

OUR NEW RECORD IS NOT A DANCE RECORD!

WELL NOT ANY KIND OF DANCE I KNOW...

Also wenn sie jetzt noch entscheiden, wann sie wo spielen, dann kann er auch direkt sgaen, dass sie auf Anfragen der Festivals warten...geht mir langsam ein bisschen auf die Nerven. Es kann doch nicht sein, dass man jetzt schon seit 6 Jahren auf eine 3 Stunden HAllen-Show warten muss!?

Wenn es denn damals wenigstens die Loreley gewesen wäre...statt dessen dieser Tanzbrunnen. :roll:

London - Wembley Arena
Paris - Bercy
Oberhausen - Köpi-Arena

Sowas will ich nochmal. Wenn der Chor von tausenden Menschen zu "Play Out", wie auf "Paris" losgeht. Das wäre toll! :D

WE ARE NOT PLANNING ON MIAMI BEING OUR ONLY SHOW OF 2007!

AS EVER WE NEED TO DECIDE WHERE WE WANT TO GO AND WHEN... ONCE WE SIGNAL OUR INTENTION TO PLAY WE GET OVERWHELMED BY OFFERS - OF ALL KINDS! - AND WE THEN HAVE TO SORT THROUGH AND AGREE ON A COHERENT PLAN... LIKE DO WE PLAY CURE SHOWS - INSIDE OR OUT? - OR DO WE DO ANOTHER CURIOSA STYLE THING - WITH WHO? - OR DO WE PLAY FESTIVALS... AND DO WE PLAY THE BIG SHOWS IN THE BIG CITIES OR...

WELL YOU GET THE IDEA

ANYWAY...
WHEN WE HAVE MORE OF AN IDEA I WILL POST AGAIN!
RSX

PS
IN ANSWER TO THE (FEW) RAISED ULTRA EYEBROWS: THE CURE HAS A LONG HISTORY WITH 'DANCE' MUSIC... OUR FIRST EXTENDED 12" MIXES HAPPENED IN 1981... AND OF COURSE 1990'S MIXED UP (AND MIXED UP 2? HA!)... AND THE MANY AND VARIED COLLABORATIONS... C'MON! WE CAN DANCE! (KIND OF... )

Nach dem Gast-Auftritt auf dem neuen Faithless-Album:

Ashlee Simpson will nach ihrem Engagement bei dem Musical «Chicago» ihre Gesangskarriere wieder aufnehmen - und The Cure-Frontmann Robert Smith soll ihr dabei helfen.


Die «Pieces Of Me»-Sängerin, die in der Show am Londoner West End die «Roxie Hart» verkörperte, war begeistert, als ihr Idol sich ihren Auftritt in dem Musical ansah, und verrät, dass sie sich gut vorstellen kann, dass sie beide gute Songs zusammen machen.

Simpson: «Robert Smith von The Cure kam zu meiner letzten Show in London und ich weiss nicht, ob ich aufgeregter war, weil er da war oder weil es die letzte Show war! Mit Robert Smith zu arbeiten wäre eine Ehre.»

Smith seeks cure for writers' block
(Wednesday December 06, 2006 00:43 AM)

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Thirty years in the music business is no prevention for writers' block.

That is the problem facing The Cure frontman Robert Smith, who is struggling to come up with lyrics to some of the 33 new songs the band has recorded for its 14th studio album.

The record's release has already been pushed back to May and the group goes on tour in March, so the pressure is on for the 47-year-old, who does not want to his legacy to be an ageing band that gradually fades into the background.

"I want them (the words) to mean something, it's not enough that they rhyme," Smith told Reuters in a recent interview. "I find myself stopping short and thinking I've done this before, and better.

"I've given myself a deadline to finish the words before Christmas. If I don't I should be shot," he said.

Smith founded The Cure in 1976 and made an early splash with tight three-minute post-punk songs like "Boys Don't Cry".

Adding keyboards and layered guitars, he developed a taste for epic arrangements and took the band to the top of the charts in the 1980s with dark albums of melancholic grandeur like "Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me" and "Disintegration" that also contained snappy pop hits like "Just Like Heaven" and "Lovesong".

His confessional lyrics made it acceptable for male rock singers to express feelings of vulnerability, and opened the path to a plethora of "emo" bands like Thursday or minimalist 1980s revival bands like Interpol.

The new album is shaping up to be a mix of mournful songs alongside more energetic and upbeat cuts.

"I tend to favour this option, more in the style of the 'Kiss Me' album, with different things happening instead of being a mood piece," Smith said. "But the art of that is to get it to all hang together."

For the first time in more than two decades, the band has no keyboard player after Roger O'Donnell quit last year. Original Cure guitarist Porl Thompson -- married to Smith's younger sister -- has returned for a third stint in the band.

"There's no need for keyboards when you have Porl playing guitar," Smith said. "He can pretty much create any sound you want. He's brought back a sense of urgency and we've got a rock edge again."

Bassist Simon Gallup, in the band on-and-off since 1979, and Jason Cooper, on drums since 1995, round up the ensemble.

"Being a four-piece is getting back to a stripped-down stage look and sound," Smith said.

"The fact that we can turn out anywhere with very little equipment and play is the old idea of The Cure. It's less grand than things we've done in the past, but we're still planning to play for three hours."

DON'T CALL ME GOTH

Smith's dishevelled hair, thick eyeliner and smeared lipstick earned him a reputation as leader of the gloomy goth rock movement in the press, a type-casting he has long battled to little effect.

"It's so pitiful when 'goth' is still tagged onto the name The Cure," he said.

"We're not categorisable. I suppose we were post-punk when we came out, but in total it's impossible. How can you describe a band that put out an album like 'Pornography' and also 'Greatest Hits' where every single song was top 10 around the world? I just play Cure music, whatever that is."

The makeup is part of his performance ritual.

"Performing doesn't come that naturally to me even though I've done it for years," he said. "Perhaps not as badly applied and not as obvious, but for thousands of years people have worn makeup on stage."

Fans can get an early glimpse of the band's new look and sound on a DVD released this week. "Festival 2005" was recorded during nine shows in Europe last year and mixes professional camera work with amateur footage shot by fans.

"It was never planned," Smith said. "By the time we did the final show in Istanbul we had 13 cameras, but at the first show we only had one. It was directed by serendipity, and it was kind of thrown together."

The DVD features 30 songs, one for each of the years Smith has been performing with The Cure.

"I'm genuinely surprised at people's reaction when we play shows, it's hard to ignore it," he said. "It's gratifying to know that people still want The Cure to exist. We're an old band playing to a young audience."

As long as he can still command that audience and perform for three hours, Smith said he wouldn't retire.

"I'm aware that time is moving on," he said. "I don't want The Cure to fizzle out doing 45-minute shows of greatest hits. That would be awful for our legacy."
