Roma, Curva Sud
dello Stadio Olimpico
23 luglio 2002
The old Bob seems
to be in a great form this night.
About 12.000 people
attended the show in the Curva Sud of Stadio Olimpico, the temple of A.S.
The concert started
with Plainsong and had a lot of songs from the past:
A great "The Kiss",
"Torture", "If only tonight we could sleep" from the Kiss me Kiss me Kiss
me album, and "Just Like heaven" in the enchires too, then a lot of songs
like "Siamese Twins", "One hundred years" and "Pornography" from this magnificent
1982 album, while they played "The drowning man", "Faith" from the "Faith"
album, while from Seventeen Seconds they took "Play for today", "M" and
Also they played
"In between days" from The Head on the door" and only "Three Imaginary
Boys" from their first album. Definetely an anti-pop gig, for the joy of
"old" fans and the sadness of the girl which I heard saying at the beginning
in roman dialect "Let's dancing". But she has been very quiet 'cause she
couldn't dance "Charlotte sometimes", she didn't know it!
By the way, from
Disintegration they did "Plainsong" and "Lovesong" and "From the edge of
the green deep sea" has been played for the Wish fans. Also "Watching me
fall" and "Bloodflowes" from this album. And.. oh yes! "Shake dog shake"
very powerful! I thought to find less people but I was wrong: The Cure
are still loved and it's too early to quit, Robert.
