EC - seeing this late, sorry.

Yes, I went, sadly. Chalk me up as dead inside; this was a clusterfuck, IMHO. I've seen the Cure c.60 times, and with the exception of one other festival, this was at the bottom of the list. The crowd was awful, and the sound was particularly shit - I get that both of those are factors at festivals, but even by festival standards....

I really had thought that something outside of the norm would happen over the these two nights (I also went to Meltdown), given the 40th anniversary, but it was just crowd pleasing. No past members, no never-before-played songs, etc. Which is fine - I should have known better.

Just as I know that when they tour again and are off the festival stage, they'll deliver as they always do. Despite the piss and vinegar I seem to be displaying, I am just beyond thankful that RS still does what he does and does it so fucking well. While the last few studio albums have been forgettable, they still deliver phenomenal shows. The performances are great, they'll play 2...3...4 hours...and play deep, deep cuts. And occasionally do things like Reflections and Trilogy, both of which I was fortunate to see live.

Glad to hear you enjoyed though; post Sweden game....feels like a lifetime ago already! :thumb:
