The Cure at the Sportpaleis: a historic, audacious and flamboyant concert

Robert Smith’s voice was intact, controlled, familiar, engaging. Even new songs like “And nothing is forever”, which one could imagine on a Tim Burton soundtrack, seem to have always been part of The Cure classics.

And classics, the public, to their delight, were entitled to them. All facets of The Cure have been brilliantly addressed. Their more “gothic” dimension was really not forgotten with a slamming interpretation on a blood red night background for example on “The hanging garden”, also with an almost luminous “Charlotte sometimes” or a very hypnotic “Faith” played first reminder.

For the more solar side of the evening, the fans had to wait for an extended version of “Push” followed by a “Play for today” taken up in chorus by the Sportpaleis to feel an incredible communion with the group. A room that was completely bewitched a few minutes later by a masterful “A forest”. If the opening of this monument of the new wave was this time a little shortened, on the other hand the finale was sparkling, Robert Smith leaving the lead to a faithful bass player Simon Gallup, always as virtuoso who really exploded, in the sense almost literal of the term, his sonic signature.
