Simon & Roger made it a point, it seemed, to talk to every person in the bar - like actually have conversations with people. They literally came over to us and offered hugs. Smith posed for photos with a very small group of fans in the lobby and disappeared. He looks so much thinner and healthier up close than on stage. He looked great, actually.

So wow, they are nice people, guys. That's my Cure story. Of all the musicians I ever thought it would be cool to meet like that, they never crossed my mind.

Very cool. I'm going to check out your set list now and be more jealous.

EDIT: Holy shit, you got several Bloodflowers songs, I would have lost my shit. Haven't heard even one song from that album live in person. Same as U2, Drowning Man, is one of my favorite "underrrated" tracks of theirs, I would have flipped out on that too.

Why oh why didn't you go to the Dallas show?? I need to listen to Bloodflowers more. I totally appreciated that they played stuff I knew they didn't play often, and the last show I saw they played a more popular setlist, so I feel Cure complete now.

There were a few moments when I was trying to get on the road where I thought why am I doing this, I'm so stressed out, I kept having to pull over and answer work emails, and I felt like maybe it wouldn't be that good or whatever. I honestly don't care about meeting bands but obviously I'm delighted with the way it turned out.

So far they've played seventy different songs in six shows. Not bad for a band that's been around for nearly 40 years. If only other bands could rotate that much stuff around...

B-b-b-but it will ruin the NARRATIVE! It's too hard for the lighting guys!! It'll offend the casual fans!!!

How dare they play both A NEW SONG and A B-SIDE at every night of the tour so far? Those fuckers.

Interesting first set at the Hollywood Bowl. I'm thrilled that they played 32 songs despite the curfew. And they played 2 Late! Hopefully after a really KMKMKM, The Top and Disintegration-heavy show, they'll give some love to the early stuff tomorrow, my first and probably last show of the tour. Only 3 songs from the first four albums tonight.

I think it's awesome that Burn is still in the set. Hopefully tomorrow isn't the first night they skip it.

Rob, Wrong Number still sucks. Please stop playing it.

Also, if I could hear 2 Late live I would literally die a happy man.

I can't fathom why on earth they play anything from The Top.

It's cool that they're willing to play anything from their discography, but only 3-4 of those songs would hold anything beyond novelty value for me.

The Cure: 4:13 DREAM

Oh man, that was a dream setlist for a bit. This Twilight Garden, A Night Like This, The Exploding Boy, A Letter to Elise, just fantastic stuff. There was a run of The Exploding Boy> In Between Days> Just Like Heaven that was pure pop bliss.

After that, well, great performance but the Cure lottery was not kind. Might try to grab a ticket for tomorrow and hope for the best. This is one of only two 3 night residencies on the tour so who knows how weird it might get.

Guess tonight didn't give you more appreciation for Wish.

Shame they're playing all that but not Cut.

I would have liked to have heard Doing the Unstuck, personally. It was such an upbeat show that the song's deceptively sweet melody would have fit in great. High was more than acceptable as a replacement.

I wanted to hear A Night Like This so bad, but A Letter to Elise forgives all. I feel like A Night Like This is a Cure song even martha would like.

A Night Like This is in my Cure Top 10. Maybe 5.
