It's funny....we can dissect who said what and how the mix was...whether the institution is a joke or otherwise and a million other things, but this was a pretty fucking amazing night. Was it the best performance of theirs that I have witnessed? No, but I wasn't really measuring it. Because sometimes it's just about the songs and an occasion, and how you feel. If you watch The Cure and spend the whole time thinking, rather than feeling, well....

Aye...the expectations were zero as in that kind of setup, the performance was never going to sublime, especially in such a shit venue. But the whole thing will live on in the memory. TR did an excellent job, I thought. And it was nice to see the other old geezers on stage, no matter the silliness from the geezerette on social media after the fact. It was nice to park my cynicism for a few hours.

The two aren't exclusive (in fact, I don't think there is a real distinction at all -- there is thinking *about* which is distinct from the thinking involved in what is thought about, but the former involves feelings too). If the songs don't feel right, they don't feel right, and that may not reflect entirely on the band or the occasion or whatever. There are subjective and objective components to the evaluation of the experience. For me, it seemed weak on both counts, and that contributes to an overall "meh" about it. (Side note: I tried to laugh about it, cover it all up with lies... but... no this is stupid.)

I'll sleep when I'm dead. :tiphat:

:cool: I'm going to tune in the 30th.
" Today marks the 30th anniversary of The Cure’s renowned 1989 album, Disintegration. To honour the occasion, The Cure have added a fifth performance to their Vivid LIVE residency at the Sydney Opera House, which will be live streamed in full.

The concert will take place on May 30th, and will see the legendary rock band playing Disintegration in full. The performance, which will be live streamed worldwide on Facebook and YouTube, is directed by British filmmaker and the band’s collaborator, Nick Wickham.

“We look forward to celebrating the anniversary of this special album with you all,” frontman Robert Smith explained in a statement. “And remember: this album was mixed to be played loud… so turn it up!”
