The Cure: Live In NYC - 19 June 2016

The Cure - Night 2 of 3 at Madison Square Garden...

Last night The Cure treated a sold out crowd to a 
2 hour and 45 minute set of deep cuts, classics and 
a brand new song entitled "It Can Never Be The Same".

For a full set list, go HERE.

The one thing that remains is the band's musicianship, 
ability to weave hypnotic sound textures and seamlessly
shift into brutally dark territory with a symphonic grace .
At no moment was their pop sensibility all that far away.
Those who came to hear the dance tunes were not disappointed.

This is the second time my friend Janie and I have seen The Cure together.
The last time was Summer 2000. It's hard to believe that it's 2016 and 
we are still being treated to new music by this enduring group of artists. 

One very surprise of the evening was running into my Instagram friend Alireza. 
It's always wonderful when people you know from the digital world become 
three-dimensionalized and you find out that they do not disappoint in any way.
