Macca was awesome as he has been every one of the 4 times i've seen him this millenium (i'm sure if this had been the first or 2nd i would have been absolutely ecstatic). a few odd song choices (flaming pie? WTF?) but given that he played for 2.5 hours (we bailed after first encore) he is certainly allowed to throw some duff tracks in the mix.
this lineup of the Cure is playing better live than any lineup since at least 1990 or so. missed the first 5 songs due to Orb - Jen had said the start of the cure set was lame, but from the time we got there on they were excellent, as good as last year at the shrine. missed the last 45mins or so - fatigue had set in, but we caught at least an hour and a half
sadly disappointed (even bailed for 10 mins in the middle - and it seemed like a good chunk of the tent did as well. they've got some MC dude now and . . . i just don't want to see that at an Orb show. played at least partial versions of some classics and it had its moments for sure but the low points were pretty low.
