QuoteOne of the most emotionally charged moments came during the rendition of "I Can Never Say Goodbye," a poignant tribute to Smith's late brother, Richard. The poignant synergy between Roger O'Donnell's masterful key arrangements, the haunting carousel visual, and Smith's deeply moving vocals stirred profound emotions among the audience.Moreover, the onstage camaraderie between Smith and the exceptionally talented guitarist Reeves Gabrels, as well as the infectious chemistry between Gabrels and Gallup, infused the performance with an electrifying energy. Their joyous interactions and shared musical synergy epitomized The Cure's tight-knit unity.While it may be impossible for The Cure to satisfy individual song preferences within a single show, they masterfully curated their setlist, offering surprises that thrilled diehard fans and casual listeners alike. On Saturday in particular, the crowd reveled in the captivating embrace of "Prayers for Rain" from the iconic Disintegration album.
QuoteOf the three dates I attended, May 27, the second concert, was the most special. It was at Shoreline Amphitheatre. Once again, I brought my dad to this show. We were able to relive the time we both had seen them together in 2016. We were seated merely six rows from the stage. The moment Smith came out, the crowd erupted into a roar and I burst into tears. Smith was quite literally 10 feet away from me and he saw the moment I cried from the sheer happiness of seeing him. There was a woman right next to me who also began to cry. She understood the great emotion his mere presence brought.I sang and danced to every song they performed; the lyrics just came so naturally to me, considering I've spent many hours listening to their discography over the last 10 years.
