For once I could hear Porl coming through the PA and didn't have to rely on picking him up through his cabinets.  He's such an integral part to this Cure line-up that he needs to be loud like tonight.  The strange , no make that bothersome part of the mix tonight was Jason.  For once it wasn't his kick drum that was too loud, it was practically every other drum and one or two cymbals, with the snare being WAY to loud. 
I was in a Terrace box and had trouble hearing Porl most of the time. And the snare drum *was* really dreadful.

Were you on the left or right side, far or near?  I was on the left in the second row of boxes. Perhaps I was hearing Porl through his amps.  :smth017  And after being to a few shows where I was right in front of his amps I can tell you that there wasn't much of his rhythm stuff coming through the PA.  Hell, some of his solos were pretty faint as well.  I really wonder what the deal is there. Up close, it's great.  Not so much from further back.

Pretty much dead middle left right and middle of the terrace front to back. I mean I could hear him, just not very well. And his tone was weak.

I took a cell phone pic of Trent sitting very close to me, yet I do not know how to post it on here...any assistance?

you can for instance attach the pic on your post :D:

when you have the pic on your computer HD, then as you're making a reply post here click 'additional options' just below the area you're typing into. there you'll see 'attach' option. click 'browse' and choose the pic from your HD. then hit 'post' and voilá!

let's see the pic.. :)

Absolutely, I do not mind that you share, I happen to be in a sharing mood today, as you can see with the other random pic I attached. Nothing special, but I just feel like posting more poor quality cell phone pics of probably one of the best concerts I have been to (Rage Against the Machine back in 1999 still takes the cake!)

For my first post I will mention what an AWESOME show it was!  It was my first Cure show ever and to see them at the beautiful venue that is the Hollywood Bowl was an extra special treat.  We had first row in the second section back from the stage.  When we walked in, we saw Adrian Grenier (Vincent Chase from Entourage) so that was pretty cool since I'm a big fan of that show. 

I was really hoping to hear Fascination Street, but I guess I'll have to catch that at my next show.  The setlist was amazing though and it's refreshing to have a band play for such a long time.  Highlights for me would be Lullaby, Pictures of You, Just like Heaven, One Hundred Years, In Between Days, hell just the whole thing was amazing.  I could listen to Robert sing names out of the phone book for days.

Just a great experience and I can't wait until my next show!

Nice close-up here, too bad the sound is crappy



This is another good one



Both "Underneath the stars", one of the greatest songs of our favourite band.
