Is up on YouTube,
The first video is the main set
The second video is the encore (though missing most of Lullaby)

Hmm.. The wink suggests something meaningful ...is it you there? Or another Curefan?

...scratch that, just read the next message. Nice to put a face to a name!! :)

Wow!! I'm watching this now, what an awesome show this one is. The setlist order is great, such a fierce start. The word ELECTRIC keeps arising in my mind. Perfection.

By the way the link x-phile posted in reply #3 works best (the other one I posted was glitchy)

minute 20:38 > phones have taken not only our daily lives, but also those very special moments with The Cure. Look at those people. Maybe some of them are running to Twitter to post what song The Cure played (funny thing is, the setlist is 99% the same so far in the whole tour!) Some prefer watching Bob through tiny holes not just for a few seconds but in some cases for several minutes or for the whole concert (funny thing is - pretty much every concert in this tour is streamed and we have the chance to see a HD video of the gig soon afterwards). Where is humanity heading if even the world's greatest band show is not enough to capture our full attention?

I don't know where humanity is heading (probably to hell)... but certainly a few people taking pics/vids at a Cure show is not something to value the whole of "humanity"?  :?

(What's more of a "sign" about humanity is how "we" exploit other countries or whole continents to be able to use such technical devices...)

Btw, apparently German band "Die Toten Hosen" asked not to use cameras, smartphones etc. at their recent acoustic show - probably because they were filming it...)

considering there are 7 Billion people in the planet and more than 7 Billion mobile devices in use, I think it's a very good indicator of our times (I am talking about how phones are -radically- changing human behavior)

And I was talkin' about how 7 billion people don't care how/if other people on earth are exploited in the "making" of those mobile devices...
The reason why people take pics (or vids) is because they want to "hold" this moment for "posterity", so they can re-watch it and say "I was there" (or show it to others) - because everyone knows they'll be dying one day and thus there is something left. That is a deeply human thing imho. (Of course I dislike people watching whole shows on their phones instead of "being there" - but I understand the emotion behind it.)

Impossible to enjoy a show whilst engrossed in your phone.
We are addicted to our devices with Facebook, Twitter etc like a drug addiction, wonder how many were checking their social media feeds on a regular basis!

Ps have wrote this message via my phone after reading my twitter feed! Damn I'm just the same as everyone else! #phoneaddict 😠

Many do so - I can't, as I own a very old-fashioned mobile phone, which I turn off during a Cure show. At the Stuttgart show in 2016, I had my (little) camera on me, I took a few pics, of which two were kinda "viewable". (During a Cure gig, which lasts 2-3 hours, there is enough time to try taking some pics. I knew others would be filming, so I didn't...)

Still, the signs where "humanity" might be heading, are to be found in how we treat other human beings, animals, the environment etc.!
