Now Playing Tracks

I took this photo with my own two little hands :) My friend Paul had gotten backstage passes to the show that night, because he snuck into the hotel where the Cure was staying and met Robert and asked him for backstage passes. It really was Just Like Heaven…wait, no, it was 1986…and I was 16…Just Like Heaven wasn’t even released yet. I have more photos from backstage that night which I will be posting in the next few days. It was so surreal for me. I remember my friend Paul got into a lot of trouble that night (he was just 16 too) because he never told his mom he had backstage passes and he didn’t get home until after 1am on a school night (my mom picked us up from the concert and drove us home). But getting in trouble and getting grounded for staying out late because Robert Smith put you on the guest list and gave you backstage passes is TOTALLY worth it!!!!!!

The first time I saw The Cure live was Thursday, July 10, 1986 at The Spectrum in Philadelphia. They also played at The Spectrum July 10, 1996. Before the 1996 show, they played a game of soccer against a local radio station at the field across from the venue. I took my pictures from backstage in 1986 to that soccer game and got them all autographed…and then I asked the magical question “So, since it’s the 10 year anniversary of the first time I met you guys, can I come backstage again tonight?” Robert said yes, and I found myself backstage at another Cure show, 10 years later. Pictures from that will also be posted soon. :)

Amazing!! Thank you so much for answering my question!! Please post some pics :-) sorry I just saw this!

Okay so today’s Rob’s birthday. First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABE I LOVE YOU SOOOOOO MUCH, I don’t think anybody realizes how much you’ve influenced me. Without you, I wouldn’t have gone through my depression, and I wouldn’t have been able to hear the beauty in music. Your words are like poetry, and I can’t tell you how obsessed I am with you Robbie. I absolutely love and adore you, you are mine for always and ever and I am eternally grateful for EVERYTHING. The pictures you’ve given me, the fangirling, my obsession, your music. I hope Everything for you today is PERFECT, happy birthday once again I LOVE YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART YOU ARE MY #1 FAVORITE SINGER AND I GUESS YOU COULD SAY YOU ARE THE CURE (PUN INTENDED). My obsession has been growing strong since August 2013, and I’ve been looking forward to this day since. (I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you…)~~I love you to the max babe
