No one has commented here yet so I'll do the honours:

As discussed elsewhere the order was reversed, so b-sided and rarities before the Disintegration tracks. This made for a unique start, with RS walking out with the rest of the band and discussing the plan for the night. He mentioned that he felt the order of set list the night earlier may have not been as engaging as planned. Between tracks in that first set he was very talkative which was lovely, and he shared some facts. Such as that some tracks didn't progress beyond instrumentals because 'some' members (Roger pointed to Simon) would make up silly lyrics, so then it was hard to play the track without hearing those lyrics (haha).
The start of Plainsong was a bit bizarre as it was like band members snuck back onstage without the audience really noticing. Everyone was seated and fairly quiet, but eagerly listening (I wonder if it may have been received differently? They seemed to look/chat with each other (my impression was they were noticing how quiet it was) then Robert gave a gesture/look to the audience which I felt conveyed ("huh? Why are you all so quiet?" ...I may be guessing that) to which everyone seemed to respond strongly, all cheering etc. 

overall another great show, though with slightly bizarre feel to the audience and atmosphere tonight.  The extra encore at the end was appreciated!!
Ending with Pirate Ships is haunting, especially when theres an old tall ship currently docked out front of the Opera House...(!)

Where is "elsewhere" in this case?  :?

Oh sorry, I think I assumed everyone else checks the same sites as me 😆

Well, sometimes I do (CoF), but in this case there was no need really, as I didn't expect the setlist to change much!  :lol:

Changing the setlist order was a good idea (setlist updated in the first post of this topic, by the way), however I would have included 'Burn' and 'Pirate Ships' together with the rest at the beginning, and close the show with a powerful song e.g. Killing An Arab, The Kiss or Faith. Having said that, of course I would give my left arm to be there, regardless of the setlist!

I personally only check this forum, The Cure official sites, Twitter and cure-concerts.de for setlists. That should cover any information related to the band ;)
