27th of July 1985


Antic Panathinakos Stadium of Athens, festival where The Cure are together with Nina Hagen, Talk Talk and Telephone. Robert says “I’m lucky because I’m quite myope, so I don’t care if there are thousand or ten thousand people in the public. I can’t see anything beyond the first row.

Even Boy George takes part to the soiree and after the concert he’s completely fucked up. The members of staff of the hotel where The Cure house are convinced that Simon is the real Boy, and they insist to offer him free champagne. Simon rewards them singing the chorus of Do You Really Want to Hurt Me.

  • Simon: Never! Really, it was me.
  • Robert: I came in your pub! Miles away. On foot.
