The Cure 2016 in Basel: A concert with goosebumps

For more than 20 Years the hero in the saddest hours and the ancestors of the gothic scene are back. Uber 40 Years did it take until the first Cure-Concert in Basel and the wait was worth it. „The Cure“ live are not just a concert, „The Cure“ live are an event and the British led by singer Robert Smith spoiled the audience with 27 Songs DarkWave on indie rock and pop. The sound of „The Cure“ was and still is a definition for you and the band was at their concert in Basel's St. Jakobshalle really all, were the musicians but nearly three hours on stage, to leave home to the fans completely happy again. Can be so beautiful sad!

The Cure 2016 in Basel: A concert with goosebumps

at 19 AM was admission to the St. Jakobshalle in Basel and my enthusiasm is at this location always enormous back, because she was sonically far just never really worth mentioning and I do not really like generally large arenas. I just like it prefer something more intimate and especially the listening experience is very important to me. It was also Zig-thousand music fans on Friday night clear, the St. Jakobshalle will be rebuilt, as they must take a detour for the Cure concert, past barricades and wooden crates. Inside they expect although new toilets, but the hall itself still strongly reminiscent of that decade, in which most of the first time with „The Cure“ came into contact. However, at 19.30 AM was the opening act „The Twilight Sad“ rang out on the stage and the first notes.

The Cure Basel

The opening act went well with „The Cure“, the singer of „The Twilight Sad“ from Glasgow looked not only like Ian Curtis of Joy Division, but also moved so. A sympathetic band, has been pleased, as they themselves said, that so many people were so get there early. They gave a very soulful concert, sprayed something melancholy in the hall. Nevertheless, some concertgoers seemed not quite so enthusiastic, many still remained at a short distance from the stage and the audience in general was very quiet. musical, are sound and vocally „The Twilight Sad“ Top. The first song „Reflection of the Television“ comes live fantastic. I had never heard of the four Glaswegians something, yet they have been 2006 published four albums and six EPs. This Scottish dialect like it eh very good and the guys played all seven songs and could musically with soulful Music and good, convince dark sound.

Setlist „The Twilight Sad“:

  1. Reflection of the Television
  2. Last January
  3. I Could Give You All That You Don’t Want
  4. Seven Years of Letters
  5. It Never Was the Same

  7. And She Would Darken the Memory

at 20:15 Pm it was finally over. The five musicians of „The Cure“ took the stage, Robert Smith worked as expected was a little intimidated and simply let loose without his fans in the hall to look great. The lines from the first song of the night, „Open“, you could sign smooth, if one were to focus only on the acoustic. Unfortunately, you immediately notice the louder indeed, but this unfortunately also more modest sound on. Fortunately, you could hear the individual instruments well, but the sound is saturated, a phenomenon, I experience again and again. At the expense of the purity of sound massively turned volume, because I liked the Scots advance better. Why is it, it wummert, is hard to say: Acoustics? Technology? Mischmensch? damage. The euphoria is in this first Schweizerhalle concert „The Cure“ Since 2008 attenuated only for the sake of sound quality. What the quintet was playing on stage, was overwhelming and led after a few minutes in the first highlights. who would have thought, that we the band „The Walk“, „In Between days“ or „Boys Don’t Cry“ presented so early? Robert Smith, we are likely to experience even as bulky Hitverweigerer in the past, played with his four companions soon by the first great classic and spread really good mood.

The CURE @Basel

Everything played beautifully and Roberts voice still sounds great. The 57-year-old is in fine form vocally, varies cool in the pitch and differs sometimes from the original lines from. His significant voice holds actually two and a half hours without compromising by. That the British as known numbers brought so early, also shows, from which they can choose, rich fundus. Your desire to change them apart on this tour. So the quintet Evening shakes for evening the Tour setlist by, to surprise and the audience. Bassist Simon Gallup, 56, wearing an oversized year Elvis-Tolle and Iron Maiden T-Shirt and played preferably on the monitor speakers. As the only Gallup explores the stage width of, sprinted auf Speed, as a contrast to the stoic keyboardist. The rest of the band wears simple black and her age well. So the Cure fans from the 80s and 90s, but there were a surprising number of very Boy people because, also mostly dressed in black. To celebrate the day had plenty of many manner Mid Kajal- and red lipstick borrowed from her daughters and her hair set with hairspray and hair dryer. The enthusiasm in the audience is large. Unlike previous concerts one can see only a few Robert Smith Lookalikes. We're all getting older and not necessarily hairy.

of „The Cure“ apply no current plate, missing gigs maybe a little of the narrative framework, to her concert tours once dominated. The mood of the respective works carried over once to the setlists, which were awarded by the majority winged or in Fear before the age spiraling Songs. The light show is a feast for the eyes, lush and perfectly matched to the music and on the LED panels behind the band, there was now and live camera-Bulletin with infinity effect. After 15 Songs and nearly 90 Minutes duration was the regular set for the first time to end – and yet one which had only reached half, there still should follow three massive addition blocks. Especially the first block could with the great „Burn“ from „the crow“ soundtrack and „A forest“ convince, which made again for powerful enthusiasm. The band has performed in any case a very good cross section of her work. Numerous options are Robert Smith‘ Melodies, only „Charlotte Sometimes“ and „Disintegration“ missing. The third addition to the block party! on „Friday I’m in Love“, „Hot Hot Hot!!!“ and „Close to Me“ followed the bouncing uptempo Howler „Why Can’t I Be You“ and was the culmination of the evening.

„The Cure“ live are not just a concert, „The Cure“ live are an event! And it was indeed a grand event of a famous band, which also 2016 can completely convince. Schade was only the opener, a good song certainly, only the acoustics, which was unfortunately poorly underground. Despite the somewhat sedate start could „The Cure“ probably excite most of their followers, although not all have persevered the entire three hours and for many was still to another hour in line at the door. there is to regret nothing - or maybe more than the fact, that „The Cure“ at their concerts in Italy even it packed five songs and three hours played. And yet there were all hits, but still was not anbiedernder greatest hits Evening. „The Cure“ thrilled the fans in the sold-out St. Jakobshalle in Basel. A stunning band, rousing songs and two and a half hours exuberant melancholy, celebrates enjoyable by a perfectly tempered Robert Smith and colleagues at his best. A successful concert evening, who started with great feelings and it was completed with a goose bumps. Could not be better.

The Cure - The Dragon Hunter Song (hd)

I dream of all our days to come
I drag in shapes in lines to burn
And wonder how we end this game

As on and on from stone to stone
The Monsters come and go
And every one the step we follow back again

Oh they can run
They can hide
But we will hunt
And we will find them
They can crawl
And then they die
Until our work is done

Yeah they can run
They can hide
But we will hunt
And we will find them
They can crawl
And they will die
That’s why it’s so much fun!

We only want a song to sing
A story told for us to live
And side by side we fight the beast

Floating words and floating world
We only wish this time we had was all
And spinning round we’ll be

Yeah they can run
They can hide
But we will hunt
And we will find them
They come front
And then they die
Until our work is done

So they can run
They can hide
But we will hunt
And we will find them
They come front
And they will die
That’s why it’s so much fun

We’ll find ourselves in love
A wonderful day
Together on our own
Yes someday
The legends turn to stone
A wonderful day
Just on and on
We make it home

Still wait for all our days to be
I drag in shapes in memory
No wonder if we end the same

Around around around around it goes
The Monster’s been and gone
And every one the step we follow back again

Yeah always run
Always hide
And always hunt
And always find
But everyone
This week we’ll fight
That’s why it’s won…


DBD: Friday I’m in Love – The Cure

The Cure - Friday I'm in Love

I dont care if Mondays blue
Tuesdays grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I dont care about you
Its Friday Im in love

MONDAY you can fall apart
Tuesday Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesnt even start
Its Friday Im in love

Saturday wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate…

I dont care if Mondays black
Tuesday Wednesday heart attack
Thursday never looking back
Its Friday Im in love

Monday you can hold your head
Tuesday Wednesday stay in bed
Or Thursday watch the walls instead
Its Friday Im in love

Saturday wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate…

Dressed up to the eyes
Its a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a shriek
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
Its such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
Its friday
Im in love

DBD: Burn – The Cure

ARVE Error:
thats all folks! - Video not available

„Don’t look don’t look“ the shadows breathe
Whispering me away from you
„Don’t wake at night to watch her sleep
You know that you will always lose
This trembling
Tousled bird mad girl… “
But every night I burn
But every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again

„Oh don’t talk of love“ the shadows purr
Murmuring me away from you
„Don’t talk of worlds that never were
the end is all that’s ever true
There’s nothing you can ever say
Nothing you can ever do… “
Still every night I burn
Every night I scream your name
Every night I burn
Every night the dream’s the same
Every night I burn
Waiting for my only friend
Every night I burn
Waiting for the world to end

„Just paint your face“ the shadows smile
Slipping me away from you
„Oh it doesn’t matter how you hide
Find you if we’re wanting to
So slide back down and close your eyes
Sleep a while
You must be Tired… “
But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again
Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow black dream

Dream the crow black dream…

Death Bell of the Day: Just like heaven – The Cure

Because today is the last Sunday, before the Christmas season begins and ever, the tomb suggests even a little more reflective sounds with this song. hach, I've loved the, as he then came out. And then I wurd been ridiculed, if I do have actually added, that I like the song. All the same, find him still well, like whole disk8)

The Cure - Just like heaven

„Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream“ she said
„The one that makes me laugh“ she said
And threw her arms around my neck
„Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I’ll run away with you
I’ll run away with you“

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
„Why are you so far away?“ she said
„Why won’t you ever know that I’m in love with you
That I’m in love with you“

Soft and only
Lost and lonely
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You’re just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself Alone Alone
Alone Above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

Soft and only
Lost and lonely
Just like heaven
