Brian Cox: "One of my great moments... Johnny Marr playing acoustic 'There's a light...' Not as great as playing 'Lovecats'." (Thanks Warren)
As I've said on Twitter, this has to be the coolest, geekiest, and most interesting event that The Cure have ever been a part of. Wish I was there!
"The Cure will be performing a small clutch of 'Happy Hits'. How many in a clutch? We think around 3 or so... never quite sure until we count though... and in the act of counting..."
If you're going, and wouldn't mind sending the setlist, photos, videos, thoughts on the show, etc, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks, and have a great time at the shows!
"Let's get happy!"

Little do the Cure realize after their sound check that they will be set bombed by @gregfoot #compendiumofchaos pic.twitter.com/V8xK3b71gC
