11:05 PM @akajoeyjones – They’ve killed the main PA. Just getting stage sound. Monitors I think.
@thibaultdominic – as stage manager tried to stop concert robert goes into boys don’t cry. Pa system has been shut down
10:42 PM @akajoeyjones – Robert said they don’t have enough time for the full “doom and gloom” set.
10:26 PM @akajoeyjones – Crowd has really thinned out. Not cool.
10:16 PM @akajoeyjones – “Robert’s commented on the flies a few times. Guess they’re bothering him. The quote – “I’m certainly getting my protein tonight.” “
9:52 PM @ashtraygirl82 – Roger’s keyboards getting frequent wipe down and lotsa bugs flying around since we’re right on the water.
9:34 PM Anonymous – “Thrumming-bass segue to “A Forest” by The Cure at Osheaga festival, Montreal. Primordial.”
9:33PM – Anonymous - “Wild & wonderful: The Cure’s “From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea” with Reeves Gabrels’ sea-foam green modified Rick Vito Reverend guitar.”
8:59 PM Olivier – A huge number of bugs flying through the lights onstage – I hope nobody swallows one
8:33 PM Olivier – Eden Gallup just came on stage to take a picture of the crowd: cheering! The stage is ready.
7:40 PM @jmanley15 – front and center!! 1 hour to go!
The Cure return to Canada for the first show there since the 4Tour shows back in 2008. “Only” 2 hours tonight at the Osheaga Festival, so it will be interesting to see what stays in the set and what gets dropped.
The band are scheduled to play from 8:45 – 10:45 PM. US start times are 8:45 PM eastern, 7:45 PM central, 6:45 PM mountain, and 5:45 PM pacific. Finally, some decent times for us.
If you’re not sure of the start time in your area, just use the clock over on the right or check here.
No webcasts tonight, but if anyone wants to streamcast, please feel free to do so. And please let us know about it.
If you’re going to the show and wouldn’t mind helping me with the live setlist and reports (via Twitter, email, WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.), please let me know. Olivier should be doing updates here, if at all possible, but with the usual problems of batteries dying, and lack of cell connections, we’ll take all the help we can get. Thanks!
Thank you so much! Lots of offers of help tonight. Canada rocks!
