Robert's solo set at Bilbao BBK Live


Robert Smith - Three Imaginary Boys, Fire In Cairo, Boys Don't Cry
When The Cure have technical problems with the keyboard, and have to delay the start of the show, Robert decides to do a quick solo set.
And here's Part 1 and Part 2 of the webcast.

  10. So Robert actually played Boys Don't Cry twice last night, a slow version and a fast one. I thought only Queen did that sort of thing with We Will Rock you. ;-)

  11. I thoroughly enjoyed that. I too was wondering how he was going to handle the solo in 3IB. :)

  13. Is there any end to the reasons why I love this man?

  14. I love how Robert always sings acoustic versions in a "sad" way (see Unplugged). You can see that he feels kind of shy doing this solo set, which makes it all the better!

    I started singing the 3IB solo at home, so I definitely would've sung it as loudly as possible if I was there.

  16. "That's why it's The Cure, and not Robert Smith." LOVE

    Of course, The Cure would be nothing without Robert Smith but the other guys count for something too.

  17. He also said (i think): "do not applaud too laud or it could give me ideas...."

    That was my best cure concert i've ever seen (espacially the first 3 songs of course). Audience was not the best one in my opinion.
