Thanks for the reviews & links carycameron & crowbi_wan. Hope you both enjoyed the show even thought not much was different than previous shows they played so far.  It's good to hear that Roberts voice is back too. :D
It's a perfect day to throw back your head
And kiss it all goodbye!

here is a link to a review from the Vancouver Sun newspaper

Thanks for the link, and I'm so glad the reviewer enjoyed hearing "From the Edge of the Deep Blue Sea"  :roll:
Not one of the best setlists IMO. (but I would kill to have been there anyway!)

No, it didn't.  It was the lamest of the 11 shows I saw this year.  Antwerp was a hard one to top, but this did it.  Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad show.  Just nowhere near the others.

Really?  My family thought this show was much better than Sasquatch.  Robert was in a much better mood and danced and had fun.  At Sasquatch, he just stood there...  This show had much better energy, in my opinion.

Not the best Cure show I've seen, of course, but my dad was BLOWN AWAY by it.  And I'm forced to tell him, "It's got nothing on Everett."

I'll post pictures as soon as I get through my Sasquatch stuff (or maybe sooner...).

I guess it's because it was a shorter show, no surprises, that damn pop encore (the long version), and a forest with no songs before it.  Yeah, Robert was having some fun and sounded waaaaay better than at The Gorge.  Probably wanted to rest his voice some, too (thus a bit shorter show).  I was expecting more, though.  That intimate setup, not having played Vancouver since '96, and moving the Seattle show to the middle of the state just had me thinking that it would be something more than it was.  Not a bad show, just not my favorite from the ones i saw this year.

I liked the pop encore, haha. I wish they would've changed things a *tad* more from the Sasquatch show.  They probably did go with some safer songs due to Robert's condition.  I mean, I imagine that the particularly emotional songs are extra straining.

I hadn't thought about the conditions surrounding the concert, but that's a good point.

My, I can't wait until my dad and sister see the band when they're all nice and healthy.

if i ever get to go on another concert, i hope that they will play jupiter crash because its one of my favs. if robert is healthier next time, i would like to see him dance a little more, but i guess simon rocking his bass to a forest makes up for dancing.
