WOW! That's a monster of an iconic post-punk photo. Because if I could wave to the folks on it, I'd say: "Hi Ian! Hi Simon Gallup! Hi Robert Smith!"
The first ever evidence of members of the Cure and Joy Division having met each other in one room.
But...What were the Cure doing at the Rainbow? Just visiting?

Hugh Cornwell was arrested a few days before this gig. Since the Stranglers could not perform without him, they called a bunch of friends.

...not Ian, not the Rainbow and not even the UK!

It does look quite like him though...

The photographer was focused on Robert, who is ducked away but he's in the middle anyway.
Another thing which caught my eye was the poster of The Gordons. A super great kiwi band, but in no way a band to see promoted in London in the early 80's. Anyway, that guy at the right bears an striking resemblance to Ian. Just like how Youth from Killing Joke used to look a lot like Sid Vicious.

The haircut of the prospective Ian seems off; can anyone recall having seen him with lines razored in next to his ears? Uncanny appearance, elsewise.

That's right! Ian was quite taller than that guy on the picture.

Look at that guy on the sofa! He look a lot like Steve and his way of holding a cigarette!
