Here's the deal... Amanda Palmer made an offhand comment about Depeche Mode playing (see related thread). I know you've denied Radiohead and Daft Punk previously, so... have at 'er!

Please note that ignoring this thread counts as a confirmation :)

the thing is in two days and they just released the set times

why would they add depeche mode between now and then.

If it were to happen, I guess it would be a marketing strategy. Depeche Mode has a new album coming out next week and they play jimmy kimmel the following day (in hollywood so the're probably in town right now). DM would get a lot of free press for a coachella add and also makes GV look better for out doing themselves (again)...

That was a special set. I guarantee they arent going to give the cure the same amount of time.

The Cure always play very long sets. When I saw them a couple years back they pushed the 3 hour mark. I'm pretty sure that's their time slot.

The Cure will end with a cover of My Bloody Valentine's 'You Made Me Realize' with a fourty minute holocaust section to remind you fuckers that they were just playing and they were fucking LOUD

do the math, if cure plays at 9:30, figure MINIMUM 1 1/2 hrs. Then 1/2 hr stage setup change = 11:30 for mystery band to rock our socks off for 30 grand minutes.

but more like, cure starts 9:30, does a headlining 2 1/2hr set. ending at midnight, ding ding ding, we have a winner

I wouldn't call the OP a stupid fuck, considering one of the artists performing at Coachella posted it on their own myspace blog. If anyone is a stupid fuck it's Amanda Palmer.

The cure generally plays 2.5-3 hours, so you've hit the nail on the head.

Even though I am sad that it cuts into The Kills, I am happy that The Cure have time for their full performance. In 2004, they got a late start, and the show was rushed.

Dani doesn't have to deny every single stupid fucking rumour that is started on this board.

The Cure normally play 2.5-3 hours sets. THAT is why the Cure start at 9:25... so they can play a FULL set.

This way, people can choose to see a full cure set, or they could go see The Orb, Throbbing Gristle or Etienne (or some combination) and still see a good chunk of The Cure.

Also, there's no hard rule that the main stage headliner has to be the one to close the festival. Roger Waters finished up wayyyyy before Justice finished on Sunday last year. had Justice even started by when Roger Waters finished up?

You know, the reason people were so disappointed in The Cure in 2004 was probably the short set. They usually don't get really warmed up until an hour in. Every time I see them, I'm disappointed at first...then by the end- WOW!

Yes, exactly. I always held a 1996 show as my favorite until I saw them play in San Jose last year. For anyone interested, here is the set-list from that show (37 songs):

plainsong, prayers for rain, fascination street, the perfect boy, the blood, the end of the world, lovesong, to wish impossible things, pictures of you, lullaby, catch, hot hot hot, the only one, a strange day, sleep when i'm dead, push, doing the unstuck, inbetween days, just like heaven, a letter to elise, from the edge of the deep green sea, shake dog shake, wrong number, one hundred years, disintegration,

E1: at night, m, play for today, a forest,
E2: freakshow, close to me, why can't i be you?,
E3: boys don't cry, jumping someone else's train, grinding halt, 10:15 saturday night, killing an arab

no. there are 3 options: confirm, deny or ignore.

ignoring is the third option and supports no other choice simply by the title of this thread.

and in between jesus!

actually i don't think they are playing but peter bjorn and john are the openers for their upcoming tour, wouldn't be that far off i guess. but where the fuck would they play?

This is so stupid. You guys don't think if they added Depeche fucking Mode they'd want to maybe advertise a little and sell the THOUSANDS of tickets which translate to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars DM would generate??? Same thing goes for the beastie boys thread. idiocy.

M Sparks

3 hours of the Cure = Boring.

3 hours of anything you don't like is boring. But if you don't like The Cure, why would you be at that stage?

For fans, any Cure show less than 2 1/2 hours feels like you've been cheated. Even on the 2004 tour, where the shows started at 5pm and there were like 6 opening acts, they still did close to 2 1/2.

Apparently Radiohead, David Bowie and The Smiths play unannouced every year. I just miss it because one year I had to see Princess Superstar, another year I wanted to see png pong bitches, another year I was watching Steve Aoki...you know you have to have priorities.

It's interesting how all of the Coachella billboards in and around Palm Springs and Indio seem to only mention Paul McCartney and they have an animtated figure of him.
