Re: The Cure - 2023 North American Tour

I usually make an Amazon Music playlist to gear up for a concert based on what I find on Setlist.FM. Looks like it's been approximately the same set list this tour, with some surprises. A 2.5 hour show after the opener? I'm tired already! Tough to tell when The Cure starts vs. the opener from SetList.FM, though, so I'll take any insight people have who have already gone, thanks.

They post their set time on social media for every show. Look at that the afternoon of.

Re: The Cure - 2023 North American Tour

That helps, thanks! If they're consistent with what they've posted, they'll take the stage for our show at... 8:45pm?! And it's a 2.5-hour show?! I AM SO TIRED JUST THINKING ABOUT IT. The set list looks like a lot of excellent stuff at the encores, too, so it's worth sticking around. Ugh, if people stand in front of us the whole show in the upper deck I may die inside.

Re: The Cure - 2023 North American Tour

In case anyone was still curious if my resale tickets worked, they did, no issue with that, but...

My daughter was very upset that her school's 8th grade awards were scheduled the same night as this show. The awards started at 6:30. Listed time for the Cure show was 7PM. She also had a choir performance (2 songs) at the very beginning of the awards. It was her last chance to perform with her middle school choir, and she is going to a magnet high school next year, leaving most of her friends behind. She decided that she would just do choir and then we would go, and hopefully still make the start of The Cure's set (which I was reliably sure wouldn't start until 8:15). It didn't quite work out that way. The Cure did take the stage at 8:15, and We made great time getting close, but probably because of the monsoon that we had last night, the crowd was late arriving, and the Venue has 1 parking lot and 1 entrance to said parking lot. So with those combination of factors, we were within 1.5 miles of the venue by 7:50, but didn't actually make it inside the venue until 9. She was so bummed and said she should have just skipped the ceremony at the school all together. Had to sit at the very top of the hill. Still, we saw almost 2 hours of a great show and got to spend some quality time together and make memories that we will never forget. Worth it. Also, tiny bright side, we didn't get wet, (which the people on the hill at the start of the set certainly did), lol.

Last night’s show in Mansfield was amazing. Lullaby is one of my all time favorite songs, so hearing it live was awesome.

Re: The Cure - 2023 North American Tour

The setlist in Denver was pretty great (and the weather mostly cooperated and the sun didn't blind us behind the stage).

Leaned heavily on material from "The Head on the Door," "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me," and "Disintegration," with a decent selection of songs from the rest of their catalog. Did about thirty songs, and there still quite a few I would have liked to have heard like "The Blood," "Charlotte Sometimes," "The Caterpillar," "The Hanging Garden," and "Catch" more than "Alone," "Want," and a few others, but I can't complain too much. The Cure has such a great and extensive catalog that they could easily do that two-night thing Metallica is doing. I also love that "Burn" seems to be a regular feature in their live setlist; it's a great Cure song even though it's a non-album track.

And the Denver poster is pretty great, too:

Right? $50 for a basic lithograph - has nothing on The Cure's posters and their pricing.

The Denver poster I got is still my favorite of all of the ones I've seen, but the one from New Orleans is a close second:

I just wish they had more stock. In Dallas by the time I got to the front the posters and white t-shirts were all sold out.

They played Lovecats at the Miami show (saw it on YouTube). Glad it was part of the tour.

Nice! My kids love cats and when I played Cure songs so they'd know who we were going to see, they loved Love Cats. Imagine their disappointment when I told them the next day that it wasn't on the set list for our concert the night before.
