the cure - reflections

Postby mr h atom » Tue Sep 27, 2011 11:51 pm

as the boys of mope seem ready to gear up to another album/tour for next year, they've just announced they will take to the stage in london, NY and LA this november for a repeat performance of their sydney extravaganza 'reflections' from earlier this year.
during these performances, much as on their 2002 'trilogy' (pornography, disintegration and bloodflowers) set smith, gallup, cooper, along with returning keyboardist roger o'donnell will be joined by erstwhile founder lol tolhurst, to peform their first 3 albums, three imaginary boys, 17 seconds and faith, in their entirety along with encores of that era.

i have the 'trilogy' set: it is fantastic...if i get a chance i'll take in a show, but tickets, while not overly priced, will be very limited: all the venues have somewhere between only 3,000 and 7,000 per show, with only 7 sets to be played altogether...either way, the sydney set was filmed and i eagerly await that

i've seen the group a couple of times, and i won't be eternally damaged if i miss fact, i might just hold out hope for a real tour next year...but...wouldn't it be nice if some former beatle could find the balls to do something like this ?
at the end of the end it's the start of a journey to a much better place and this wasn't bad so a much better place would have to be need to be sad...

It would be cool to see Paul perform a few albums in their entirety live. Maybe his best three as opposed to his first three, though. By the way, why doesn't Paul ever use real horn sections in his live appearances anymore? Surely he can afford it. If he ever were to perform, let's say...Tug of War (the album) live, it would be such a let down to substitute keyboards for great horn songs like Take it Away and Wanderlust to name two. The only other question I have is could he pull of every song vocally these days?
