the cure love cats

Ok this is not about Japan at all, I just wanted to share my Simon Gallup story with his fans here as they love him so much and I really respect that.
It’s not a huge story but one time I went to see the Cure, I think it was the Wish tour, Simon collapsed on stage. It turned out he had pneumonia and was playing his heart out despite feeling like death as he didn’t want to let the fans down. Robert kept looking over at him knowing something was wrong and the whole band were clearly anxious about him.
It was awful seeing him collapse, he was helped off stage and the band carried on without him which was a bit weird but what could they do? Anyway it was close to the end of the gig and Simon came back with them for encores and The Forest. It was amazing. I think he was taken to hospital afterwards but it’s so long ago I can’t be sure. I just remember feeling really sorry for him.
Of course he managed to stay looking totally cool and utterly beautiful throughout because he is and ever will be Simon Gallup.
