Comments : Tonight's concert sounded exactly like the last time I saw them at the Paleo Festival. That could have been a good thing if it wasn't 11 years ago. It was pop song after pop song and after a while, I started to get a bit bored (example: Mint Car, Friday I'm In Love and Doing The Unstuck played one after another). It seems to me that The Cure play more or less the same setlists over and over again. As for the new songs (i.e. everything after Bloodflowers), I hope I never have to hear them again. The band played 20 minutes over their allotted time and the sound was cut by the stage manager during Boys Don't Cry. Not a bad performance per se, but tonight's show left me quite uninspired and at this point, I am not sure I will go see them again.
