THE CURE IN AMSTERDAM & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

THE CURE IN AMSTERDAM & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

The Cure concert & it’s Fancy Friday!

So do not hesitate to get involved in the linkup! My goal still is to get 100 linkups each week and I get stuck at 80! Come on girls, show yourself and spread the word please!

My history with The Cure.

Today’s post has nothing to do with fashion, but it’s my blog and I decide what is to come. Lol. We went to a concert by The Cure last weekend and I want to tell you about it.

I was a somber adolescent of just 15, when I first heard ”A Forrest” on the radio. I remember exactly where I was and what I then thought. I thought: maybe life will be fun one day. Yes, I was that kind of teenager.  So I became a big fan of their music and my love for black clothing and England also comes from The Cure. Today The Cure is still the number one for me and ”a Forrest”is ,for me, the best song ever! Eight years ago I saw them for the first time life in Rotterdam and I believe I had goosebumps all night. Fantastic! In 2012 they came to Pinkpop, a festival in the Netherlands. I still worked back then but was in a very bad shape. I asked three months before the festival that particular day of and did not get it. I was really upset about it, not to say devistated. Meanwhile it was getting worse with my health and my lung doctor advised me strongly to stop working  as I was demolitioning my body. I stopped working after he told me for a second time to stop otherwise he couldn’t do anything for me anymore. I stopped……..and I went to Pinkpop!

Enjoying The Cure!

November 2015 began the presale for this concert. In the years from the moment I stopped working till about five months ago, we had to accept and learn a lot and there was a lot of grief involved because of my health. In that period I never listened to The Cure. I couldn’t, it was to emotional. Since a few months I can listen again and enjoy! Therefore I looked forward enormously at the concert and I can tell you, it was great! I had booked an overnight stay at the hotel next to the Ziggo, so distance to walk was not a problem. We sat at the top row and it was overwhelming. Three hours listening to your favorite band, yelling, singing, enjoying. If you wondered what a blurry photograph there is in between, that’s me singing! Probably a lot of you never heard of The Cure and this is a totally uninteresting article for you to read, but I wanted this experience written on my blog. The hole week I wake up with a The Cure song in my head and I hardly can believe we’ve seen them again and that it is already over! It was unforgettable!

This is where I link up!

Most viewed last week is: Rosemary from Distinctly Southern Style. Take a look at her blog!

    Nancy, how fun! I was that kind of teenager as well and listened to The Cure quite often myself. I am so glad you got to go see them!

    Seeing your favourite band in concert is just the best feeling! When I’ve been to see AC/DC it felt like the rest of the world didn’t exist and there was nowhere else I’d rather be. Happy days 🙂

      Yeah! That feeling! Afterwards I thought:huh, is it already over, was I really there. As if I was out of myself!

    I absolutely love The Cure! I went to see them at Leeds Festival a few years ago and they were AMAZING live! My favourite song is Hurts Like Heaven 🙂 I hope that you had a wonderful time at the concert 🙂

      El, I cant tell you how it was! I am a fan since I was 15 and they have always been the number one for me! It s fantastic to hear that you saw them at Leeds festival. I think I I remember that we were at that time in the UK and they were also playing in Reading.

    How fun! Thanks for sharing your history with The Cure and why their music is so special to you. My “Cure” is the band Tegan & Sara. I heard their song “Walking with a Ghost” on alternative radio my first year in college, and my boyfriend (now husband) and I downloaded all their old albums and started frequenting their concerts. It’s 12 years later, and we still sing along to their music and go to their concerts whenever they’re in town. Have a fab weekend, though I’m sure it can’t beat your last weekend. You can sure try, though! haha

    • November 18, 2016 / 5:47 pm

      I Also loved metal! Still do! Saw Iron Maiden five years ago!

  14. November 18, 2016 / 5:10 pm

    Now that brings back memories – my sister was a big fan of The Cure back in the day!

    Love love love The Cure ! I would love to have seen them! If I ever go to Amsterdam Nancy I will let you know as I would love to meet for tea! Did you like Depeche Mode ? I was good friends with them at school. I went to their very first concert. They were then called Norman and the worms! There was a whole eight of us that attended !
    Thank you for hosting Nancy x

      Oh what a great comment! First of all, they will be in London in December, I would love to meet you!! And I love Depeche Mode. They will be here in May but a ticket cost €200! What a story that you were friends with them and that you attended their first concert……with eight! Ha ha ha, I never heard that they were Norman and the worms! What a name. What fun to chat about this! Enjoy your weekend Laurie!

  18. November 18, 2016 / 9:36 pm

    Rock on! That sounds like fun. I’m more of a Bon Jovi fan myself, but seldom go to concerts (I hate crowded places).

    • November 18, 2016 / 10:14 pm

      Ha ha, and it was crowded! Sold out! 17.000 fans!

  19. November 19, 2016 / 12:07 am

    I wasn’t a fan of The Cure per se but I was very much inspired by Robert Smith’s sense of style. In fact, I wore only black from the age of 13 all the way to 17, and it was thanks to him, Depeche Mode and Pat Benatar GRIN I am SO glad you got to see them perform live. I’ve been realising, of late, that it’s the small indulgences which keep us sane, keep us happy, and that they’re worth every effort xoxo

    • November 19, 2016 / 12:08 am

      And I meant to say that in the mid 90s, I worked at a radio station so I often got to meet artistes (heavenly) and attend concerts which, when you’re young and single, is one of the best things in the whole wide world!!!

      • November 19, 2016 / 8:19 am

        Wow! I can imagine that! Who did you meet?

    • November 19, 2016 / 8:18 am

      Oh but this wasn t a small indulgence to me Sheela! I also loved Depeche Mode! And Siouxie and the Banshees!

  20. November 19, 2016 / 1:37 am

    Awesome that you got to see The Cure in concert! It is so fun when a group you loved as a kid comes back to do a concert! Thanks for the link up!

      Well, I loved them from my 15th till now! They have always been my number one band!

    • November 19, 2016 / 8:20 am

      Thank you!

  21. November 19, 2016 / 8:47 pm

    Nancy, I am glad you got to see your favorite band again. I had a similar experience seeing my favorite band for the very first time, just a month and a half ago. It was surreal and I believe it was the best show I have ever been to in my entire life! So I know what you are feeling. It is a great thing to go places and see things when we can, because we don’t know what life will bring, or when it will be over. I appreciate your honesty about your struggle and pray you will continue to be able to do more and more. Thanks for posting this story and for hosting the link up! – Amy

      Thank you for your lovely comment! I am so grateful that I could do this! In my cat it’s that I get to do less and less, but I try to stay positive 🙂

  22. November 20, 2016 / 7:28 pm

    Leuk om een stukje meer over je te lezen ! En geweldig om te zien hoe je linkup aan het groeien is !

    • November 21, 2016 / 9:41 am

      Thank you! Yes music can be therapeutic!

  24. November 21, 2016 / 4:19 pm

    It’s Monday morning now…but woohoo!! I managed to make it to your Fancy Friday linkup, dearest Nancy!! Better late than never, right?? 😉 There’s no denying that music can have a HUGE impact on our lives; I think most of us have a personal “soundtrack” of special songs that remind us of important moments (good and bad) we’ve experienced. So I am very glad that you were able to see your favourite band in concert recently…way to create some wonderful new memories, right?! XOXO
