About The Cure in Holland


Thank you for visiting.

This blog is meant to gather information about the English new wave band The Cure and things related between them and the Netherlands. For visitors outside the Netherlands: Holland and the Netherlands are interchangeable names for the same little country in the Northwest of Europe.

The Cure and Holland have a special history together. It was at a festival in the city of Groningen in 1979 where they played their debut gig abroad.

Over the years I’ve collected Cure and Holland related stuff. I just thought it would be nice to share some of that here with you. I intend to post something every now and then.

I live in Utrecht right in the middle of the Netherlands. I’ve been following the band actively since late ’85 and saw them live for the first time at the Ahoy’ Sportpaleis in Rotterdam on 5 November 1987. Since then I attended all their Dutch shows and some abroad. I also like lots of other music (mostly wave, ambient, shoegaze), movies (Hitchcock, Kubrick, Lynch etc.), some bandes dessinĂ©es (Moebius, Tardi), Paris, walking in a forest…

Feel free to drop me a mail. I love receiving new and old information about Cure concerts, photos, paper cuts, media, band encounters, stories, memories…
