My Ultimate Cure Setlist

The Cure are one of my favorite bands of all time. Had all their albums on vinyl, posters on the wall of my bedroom as a teenager, you name it. For one reason or another I didn't get around to seeing them until 2008 when they played in Phoenix. I'll never forget that night.

The Cure

(yeah, cameras weren't the best in 2008)

Fast forward to this weekend, and they played their 40th anniversary show at Hyde Park in London. By all accounts a great gig to be at. The setlist was actually pretty good, albeit a "safe" greatest hits endeavor.

If I were picking the setlist it would consist of gems they rarely play live anymore. Depending on mood this would likely change but it would resemble something like this.

Plainsong
Shake Dog Shake
One Hundred Years
Disintegration
Dressing Up
This Twilight Garden
Push
From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea
The Big Hand
Sinking
The Perfect Girl
Faith
Killing An Arab
Primary
Pornography
All Cats Are Grey
Harold And Joe
The Same Deep Water As You
Just Like Heaven
A Forest
All I Want
Short Term Effect
Wendy Time
Want
A Night Like This

    I got to see them back in 97 or 98 as per of a local radio station's Christmas show. So it wasn't a show dedicated to them but it was still good.

    The setlist when I saw them at the Royal Festival Hall a couple of weeks ago was a little less hits-based.

      Yeah, of the two gigs I think you certainly went to the better one based on setlist. To be honest I was a little disappointed their 40th anniversary "event" was just a greatest hits concert. No Lol, no Boris, no Porl, no Perry. Just a gig. Ok.

    I like your ultimate setlist. My all time live favorites from above are "One Hundred Years" "Push" and "A Night Like This"

    Last time I saw them live was June 2016. Lots of deep tracks. Lots of hits. Here's a link to the setlist https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/the-cure/2016/maverik-center-west-valley-ut-63fedacf.html

    It's been a long time since I listened to the Faith album. All Cats Are Grey is one of my favorites though.
