Thanks so much to for the setlist tonight, and to for the Facebook Live Stream!


  1. Will the exploding boy make an appearance before the tour ends? Only 8 or 9 gigs left!

  2. Bad sound in la halle...not a suitable arena for the cure deep sound...and robert's voice was hidden behind Simon bass

  3. Poor bob seemed to struggle with his voice. Maybe the sunny spain will cure him :)

  4. Amazing night. Amazing tour. My daughter's first Cure show! And a great set list for her. Esp.. If Only I Could Sleep,Three Exploding Boys, At Night - wouldn't have minded The Snakepit or Same Deep Water but I can't be greedy. �� I have made 12 dates this year now and Madrid will be my final show. Let's see if more Curiosities come our way before the curtain closes... That is my hope.

  5. Nice evening indeed,
    Ok, i'm not going to speak about all the things that were great, to make it short i was watching The Cure live in concert!
    I found it nice but strange to have the three first tracks from Disintegration. I was ike, we're not in '89, it's not the Prayer Tour is it?
    When Robert had some troubles singing a night like this i thought, well, he has problems with his voice indeed, he wouldn't sing prayers for raiiiiiiin again... And what happens later in the set? They play it!
    Then a few surprising tracks, it was great (also cool not to hear wrong number). Trouble is, on the other hand we didn't get any of the two new songs! What a let down!
    What is 'bad wolf' written on Simon's amp?
    Also there was some kind of metalic structure above it, what is it?
    Am i the only to think before three was weird, as if everyone played the track in a different tune from each other.
    Finally, what's the point of having these five big spaces behind the stage when they are only used 5-6 times to do projections during the whole show? Strange...

  6. I enjoyed this disintegration heavy set :)

  7. C'est pour le souvenir...
