Just snaffled a ticket to see The Cure on Tuesday. First time seeing them since 1987. So I make that a 27 year gap. It got me thinking about the longest gap between seeing a band and I couldn't beat 27 years for The Cure.

So yeah these are the longest gaps I could think of....

27 years (1987-2014) - The Cure
22 years (1987-2009) - The Primitives
21 years (1991-2012) - Motorhead
16 years (1992-2008) - My Bloody Valentine
15 years (1990-2005) - Pixies

I managed nearly 13 years between Sisters of Mercy gigs. Wish I hadn't bothered with the second one.
