1st encore: Plainsong, Prayers For Rain, Disintegration
2nd encore: Dressing Up, The Lovecats, The Caterpillar, Close to Me, Hot Hot Hot, Let's Go To Bed, Why Can't I Be You?, Boys Don't Cry, 10:15 Saturday Night, Killing An Arab.
Note: Yes, this setlist is correct. The setlist that went out before the show even started, was wrong. It had the main set correct, but listed all encore possibilities. They picked 2 of those sets, they didn't play all 5.
Huge thank you to
Note from Michael about the horrible traffic last night (which delayed the show for 30 minutes): "The Ride from Copacabana to the Arena was a disaster. 2.5 hours by taxi. Arrived at the Arena 20 min before the show started."

From @AaronLaw92: Warm up for tonight's show with a memory of the last show in Brazil on my youtube.
Here we go! First night of the LatAm 2013 tour. Herod Layne is scheduled to open the show at 8:30pm, with The Cure scheduled to start at 9:30pm and play at least 3 hours, You can check the current time in Rio here, or with the clock over on the right side of this page,
We have reporters lined up for the show, and as long as there are no problem getting a signal, we should have the live setlist and reports tonight. Fingers crossed! And if anyone else going to the show would like to contribute, please feel free. Post in the comments, email me at craigatcof(at)gmail(dot)com, or on Twitter @CraigatCoF, or WhatsApp (email me and we can set it up). And please get us some photos of all of the new t-shirts, posters, etc. Thanks!
I know so many of you have waited so long for this night, and we are all thrilled that you finally get to see the band playing in your country again! So whether this is your first time seeing them or your 100th, I hope you have the time of your life tonight! Have fun and enjoy the show!
