Full Show Friday: The Cure Lollapalooza 2013

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...The Cure!

For the month of October we will be highlighting bands that will be playing this years Voodoo Experience, this is the second of our four entries. The Cure Play on Sunday Headlining and ending the Festival.

This week we have a band that I never got into, the closest I came to digging them were Dinosaur Jr's. cover of their tune. That said they will be headlining this year and I wanted to share their show.  I guess I should mention it two weeks into my preview of this upcoming festival..the lineup stinks. I don't care as the city is the real draw to head south, but god this lineup is total weaksauce. I could literally count on my hands the bands I would really want to see...that ain't good, but Voodoo has always been more for the kids, so maybe I am just getting old.

The fact that I never connected with The Cure doesn't matter much as they sound like they did years ago. The music is still poppy, while lightly brooding.  "Just Like Heaven" of course is my highlight, I like "Inbetween Days" as well, but fans I am sure will be able to tell me other gems that they love and I am missing out on.  This is also the most recent of the shows we will be posting this month, so odds are this set will be a lot like the one they play at Voodoo.

Pro-shot, Pro, Sound, Enjoy:
