The Cure @ Wembley Arena...
This was actually on Thursday, but I had a busy weekend ok.
As ever with The Cure these days, you are going to get value for money. Setlist.com says that they did 31 songs, which is not to be sniffed at. Good coverage of their back catalogue and even a new track (Step Into The Light) which sounded decent. When I booked tickets for this waaay back at the start of the year I sort of hoped that they might actually have new material out in time for it, but no joy sadly - made this all a bit of a party set, but the crowd seemed up for it and entertained. Very impressive lights/screens set up too - for some songs they did some kind of 3D shot from behind the band thing which made you feel like you were on stage looking out at the crowd.
From the look of the other nights, they did different setlists each night which must have been pleasing. I get the impression that Robert Smith is genuinely enjoying playing these type of shows these days and revisiting some of the older songs.
Wembley Arena is shit though eh? Been years since I've been and I would not rush back. Also, missed The Twilight Sad as they were on stage at 7pm which was annoying.
