Citizens Not Subjects


Of all the rockstars around Robert Smith (and his band) must be the most unlikely. But then again, maybe not that unlikely.

Just take a look the setlist and think of all the songs the cure could have played, and there you have it, they could have easily changed 20 songs on their list with exactly the same result: a perfect night. Maybe a bit more gloomy and dark, since no songs from Pornography and Faith found their way to the stage this time around, but perfect nevertheless.

Maybe for the better: this was a birthday party after all. A most joyous occasion. A celebration with great songs all throughout the evening.

And that is what is has always been about in the forty+ years that this band has been around, dispite them being goth-rock icons.
