I've heard a few bootleg songs of the band in 1989 (what i year, i was only 7!) and even though i can't say i know for sure but there was a really raw sound to it, might have been the equipment, but RS voice had a different edge to it, almost sharper and more determination, also the way the band worked, seemed alot more forceful, like the were really rocking it with all the could muster.

Hi Antonia! : ) Oh, yes, they were definitely giving it their all...remember that it was going to be their last tour, that may have been a factor...Cos they obviously truly thought it would be their last. (And I'm so glad it wasn't!!) : D
Ooh, I'm gonna look up some bootlegs now, thanks to you!! : )

I first saw The Cure in 1986 and they were so fantastic, I was hooked for life. I have to say that, in my opinion, they are even more amazing now! They've become so much better and have such great energy... for me these last two concerts in Las Vegas and at Coachella were transformative. They really put everything into their music and it really comes through to the audience. It's a wonderful gift they give us every time they perform. I can't wait to see them again!

My first Cure concert was 1981 Portsmouth Guildhall, my latest (but not last!!!) 2009 O2 Arena for the well deserved "God-Like Genius" award.

Wow! That's really fantastic! What a wonderful thing to have seen them so early on and watched them progress through the years! I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments! Thanks for telling us about it... I'd love to hear more about your impressions of any of the shows if ever have the inclination. I never get tired of hearing Cure stories! :)

Lucky you, I would have loved to see them in the early 80's, if timetravel was possible it's definitely one of the events I would like to travel to, a 1980/1981 Cure concert.
My first one was in 1985, it was fabulous, and so was any other concert I have seen since then. I also have very fond memories of the Disintegration tour, I saw them a good few times on that tour and they were brilliant at the time.

I saw them in '89, '92, and '09 in Houston each time. I was really nervous about the 2009 show because it had been such a long time since I had seen them. I think I was scared I would be disappointed in them as so many bands disintigrate with age and time. I was so fantastically wrong! I think they get better every time I see them. Robert was more engaged with the audience which is really endearing to me. I cannot wait to see them again. They totally rocked "A Forest" and "Killing and Arab" during the encores. I was pregnant in '92 with my daughter, Alexis, when I went to the '92 show. Guess what? I took her to the 2009 show--her first concert. It was like coming full circle.

WOW!!! That's truly an amazing and funny story.I'm getting a bit jealous imagining it all, but i've been to my fair share of concerts.

My first concert was July 1995- totally amazing dreamy experience. My most recent concert was May 2008, finally got to see Porl play live :) I've been to other concerts in between which also rocked... some i was sitting in the "nosebleed" section. But i really got to see the cure's talent up close at a Much Music taping in or around 1996 - i couldn't believe they could sound soooooooooo perfect live.......and there was such an intense electrifying atmosphere it was thick you could almost taste it... the stadiums really don't do the cure's music justice all that feedback... but i've enjoyed them and can't wait for another album and tour.

I first saw the Cure in 1986 in Dallas Texas at a bowling alley. So bizarre! Following that in 1987 in Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas. The gig was great and wierdly seen in the US press as the 'New Wave' alongside acts that had nohing in common ie Euyrthmics, Thomas Dolby, Howard Jones, Crowded House, INXS etc means they knew nothing really - US market??!! I remember thinking how bizarre they lump all these acts together! Either way Cure came out on top, obviously but also a problem for the Cure as they became more commercial and in my opinion less credible. My fav album is Pornography I guess that says it all. Post punk was slow on the marketing up-take with the US and needless to say that the US market didn't quite get it!
