1. Where can I find a list of Cure show dates and set lists?

There is a very extensive (but not complete) list of set lists at The Cure Concerts

2. Are there any live Cure bootlegs?

Yes, and plenty of them, in fact. There is an extensive discography of Cure bootlegs at Stiff As Toys And Tall As Men

3. How does the band feel about bootlegging live material?

As far as I've heard, they don't mind it too much as long as fans are not paying money for bootlegs. This is why many Cure bootleg traders will not sell bootlegs, but only trade them. I would also imagine that they don't like people bootlegging songs before they are released.
