The 1st night of three Cure shows at the Hollywood Bowl was just amazing. Every event starts with getting there and in Los Angeles that can be a struggle. In an effort to relieve stress, we have a plan when attending events at the Bowl. I always park at the Hollywood and Highland structure where it’s only $15 to park and includes a nice walk back after the show. One of my favorite things about going to the Hollywood Bowl is the picnic area at Highland Camrose Park. There are a large number of tables where you can enjoy a picnic meal before the show. Not only is it a fun way to celebrate before the show, it saves tons of money since you won’t need to buy food and drink inside the Bowl. As an added bonus, the park also provides clean restrooms for your use while on site.
After dinner we headed into the venue. The night started with The Cure taking stage at 7:35PM, having to start early because of a strict curfew of 10:30PM. The show opened with the first three tracks from the Disintegration album. Two of these songs hold a special meaning for me. “Plainsong” was played during the intro to my wedding ceremony and my wife walked down the aisle to “Pictures of You”. From there The Cure played a 3-hour, 32-song setlist full of hits and rarities. Highlights for me were hearing the song “2 late”, a B-side from the “Lovesong” single, “Closedown” and “Last Dance” from Disintegration, a beautiful extended version of “Trust”, and, Roger taking the lead with an awesome piano solo. The images on the back screen and lights fit the mood of each song; from gigantic spider webs on “Lullaby”, to bigger than life silluettes of the band during “Shake Dog Shake”. The 32-song setlist included four epic encores which The Cure themed well. There was a rock encore including the songs “Shake”, “Burn” and “All I Want”, and the closing encore was a bit more pop with fan favorites “Lovecats” and “Boys Don’t Cry”.
