Good morning all, Just finish reading everyone's comments on this tread. Amazing set list!! Freakshow oh my, and I didn't get a chance to hear it.. Periscope offered a small sample of the entire list which by the way I can't complain but come on!! Hopefully someone has either taped it or will upload it somewhere online. During my studies I will look for one.
I'd hardly call The Head On The Door & Disintegration & Wish "new" (4:13 is 8 years old) & as far as I know, there have been 3 songs played from 4:13 & 3 from Faith, while there have been 4 from Pronography. I said it before. The Cure only really exploded in the USA in 87 with Just Like Heaven, so to not draw on that era onward would be a bit short sighted. If they fill an 18000 capacity arena in the states, you can be fairly certain over 70% of that audience will be expecting that material. & what makes you think that those who like 4:13 are just "new fans"? Moreover, so what if they are? That's a good thing right?
was at this show- I noticed the people back in the lawn were considerably louder then the front sections where I was. Def came away with that "I wished they played more non singles mindset" but thats on me for having seen them several times before and completely unrealistic.
I will say I was expecting The Top to close the set when they opened with SDS which would've sent me to the mooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOON
I'm in the middle. 'Freakshow' is not a bad song (at least, not the worst from 4:13) but agree with culthero that they have thousand of better songs. I guess that Robert have to justify their latest albums. Not playing any song from them will be like admit that they are bad records.
Very true, but in a pop encore scenario, given the choice between The Lovecats or Freakshow, I think I know which I would go for. (just my opinion) It's an odd song really. When it first appeared on the 4Tour it was awful. It was flat, lifeless & sounded almost as if it wasn't quite finished. Not sure what happened, but once it got to the States, it had transformed into this wonderfully whacky tune with a real groove to it.
A interesting review, I think it is quite objective and is matching with what the most fans think. Special mention to "Wrong Number" and "Freakshow".
