gothikmaus: (Simon Gallup is my hero)
I'm enjoying a well-deserved day off after last night's concert (I still did something work-related this morning, but at least I got to sleep until 9:00 AM).

Yesterday I saw The Cure live after... I don't actually remember when was the last time I'd seen them. 2008 probably. They played in Milan in 2012, but I was in Los Angeles at the time (I was SO pissed off when I found out); then in 2014 they played in London and I was really tempted to go: it was on my birthday's weekend and Suede were playing the day after, but I was in the middle of changing job, so I couldn't.

Anyway. The concert itself was great, at the end I couldn't believe they had actually played for 3 whole hours. The only negative thing was that I was standing very far away from the stage: when I bought the ticket (4 days after they'd gone on sale), the ones for the pit were already sold out (WTF), so I bought a "cheap" one for the section further away from the stage hoping I'd be able to make my way at least halfway through. I did manage to get closer, but then got blocked and couldn't go any further. The spot I found was actually great, I could see perfectly and had a lot of room to move about, but I'm just not used to stand so far away. (Also, I use the word "cheap" with inverted commas: the ticket was €56 FFS).

They played songs they don't often play live, like "Burn", "Never Enough" and "Wrong Number" (during which Robert actually said "Pronto! Pronto! PRONTO!", which is the Italian for "Hello!" XD). Also, during a song (I don't remember which one, could've been "Trust") Robert and Simon played leaning against each other. It wasn't the classic back-against-back leaning, it was like a half-embrace, shoulder against shoulder. And Robert completely forgot the lyrics for the first verse of "Lullaby" and just came up with random words. XD Oh, Robert.

And Simon is currently rocking a Clash/rockabilly look. I approve.
