    Other than missing Ride, I would literally just park here for the entire day. Seeing Pale Waves for the second time in December, they're great. And then it just rolls along all day, fuck.

    If they break curfew, the power will just get turned off. That's what happened when Bruce Springsteen tried to do it (and he had Paul McCartney on stage too!).
    It SUPER tight at that venue.

    well that was fun!

    We sadly missed slowdive because we got snagged up in Pride but, we got to see Pride and that was pretty awesome

    Goldfrapp were excellent

    Two more cure songs off my bucket list finally: “if only tonight we could sleep” and “killing an arab” (seen that once before but after it mysteriously dropped from the set list at Manchester I was really keen to hear it again)

    “Disintegration” and “fascination street” were nice surprises, as well as “jumping someone else’s train” transitioning straight into “grinding halt”

    Are they doing Killing An Arab properly again or are they still calling it Killing Another like they did on that live album from 2011?

    It’s back to its proper title, however I’ve seen it as “another” before and it wasn’t at all diminished imho

    I've been reading about the show and it looks wonderful. I really hope The Cure go on another massive tour next year. I've been wanting to go back to those 2016 concerts ever since I went! I don't know what it is about them that makes their shows amazing. It's not like there's hard core dancing (aside from Robert's wiggles) or an intense light show. I guess it's because they're great at fan service. They do long ass sets and they change it up every night. Most bands who tour now stick to the same safe setlist and it's not as exciting. My girlfriend went to both 2016 Chicago shows with me and she was amazed on how they felt like two different shows. That's the magic of The Cure.

    I too am really hoping they tour extensively next year, I've never seen them and have been a fan since I was a kid. The last time I could have seen them they played Portland, OR on my birthday of all days, and I was in Maui (Boo hoo) . I will travel to see them, but I hope they continue to tour so I can see them at least once!

    the Portland (Ridgefield) show in 2016 was a stunner. i also saw them a week & a half earlier in vegas @ the cosmopolitan. 2 very different shows.

    Odd setlist. Seemed more like a festival/greatest hits set which is what Robert hinted at....The set from a 2 weeks earlier was far superior with a lot of deep cuts

    Sadly its' been copyright whack-a-mole'd by "KIETH" whoever that is. I was midway thru writing a blog post referencing a bunch of offsets into it

    I'm on the fence about it. Sure it's a greatest-hits list, but the performance was GREAT, and there are still some surprises in there, and the obvious stuff (Inbetween Days, Just Like Heaven, etc.) went down extremely well with the audience. Sure I'd love to have seen "At Night", or "Like Cockatoos", or maybe one of the new songs, although I don't have any emotional resonance with those anyway. The CURAETION set isn't that deep to be honest. I saw 100 years and Want in Manchester; we got ANLT, PoU, High, Green Sea, Disintegration, If Only...,Shake Dog, A Forest, Boys.. in Hyde Park as well as CURAETION.

    In fact if you only went to CURAETION you'd have missed Burn!

    Burn is such an awesome song, especially live. I never cared for it until I saw it live...honestly, I listened to it maybe once. Saw it live and it's become one of my favorite Cure songs!

    Reeves Gabrels seriously goes off on that song live. Splendid!

    Oh man I thought I was going to faint when I heard those pan pipes live! Not only did I ever think I would get to see The Cure, I never thought I would get to hear Burn!

    Robert ignored The Top and also a song like 'Burn' for so long....I wonder if Reeves is the one who got him to embrace that material. I vaguely remember some interview a few years ago where he mentioned Reeves pushing him to play more Top stuff

    The Top is such a great album. Super weird, but really good if you give it a chance. When I saw them in 2016 they played The Top for the first time in over 30 years....what a special evening. It took me a minute to figure out what was happening and then I heard the spinning top noises and I thought I was going to burst. I try not to record too much at shows, but I had to get that to at least show my brother who couldn't make it. He's the whole reason why I love The Cure now.

    I honestly think Give Me It and The Top in Chicago a couple years ago were life changing.

    Oh man! I forgot about Give Me It! That first night in Chicago was fucking magical. I'm just bummed they didn't do Piggy in the Mirror. It's one of my favorites from The Top and from The Cure in general. But it was super cool when Robert pulled out Bananafishbones for their Riot Fest set. So, it seems like he's been trying to show that album some love lately. I think he finally sees it's not as bad as he thought it was.

    Top was definitely an extension of the stuff he was doing with Severin and The Glove...I think he even said a few Top songs started out as Glove songs (Dressing Up, possibly Caterpillar) but he dug them so much, he made them Cure songs....

    i think that trent should sign the cure to nothing records for a new record. lot of hardcore cure fans disagree but i think it would be a perfect home for robert. he would get the respect & attention he deserves. also, a bit of input from trent & atticus on recording a new record would most likely be a very good thing.

    trent's label is the null corporation. i would guess he has a manufacture & distribute deal with capitol. trent's obviously a very intelligent guy. this way he owns the masters & rights after the contract expires. most likely he owns the publishing, too. it's the smart way to do it.

    I'm finally giving Bloodflowers a listen to and so far I'm loving what I'm hearing - just one question - according to Wikipedia there was a online only bonus track called Spilt Milk. Does anyone know where to get that in decent quality? :/

    By online only, I'm pretty sure they mean Napster because that's the only place I ever remember seeing that song? So I'd be surprised if it was ever better quality than a 192kbps file unfortunately.

    Ahh bummer. That’s what I thought especially given the release date. Was just hoping some of you guys might have stumbled onto a better version somehow haha
    hopefully Bloodflowers gets the reissue treatment with that song?
