Ever since my friend (Eligio) and me bought our tickets, we've been pumped. We were both longtime lifetime fans of the Cure, so we couldn't help but to be excited. We were able to grab lawn tickets, which in our opinion was better than grabbing regular seats. We had prepped ourselves the week before to expect an amazing night full of good tunes and good vibes. Once the Friday hit we were more than ready, we were full of energy!
The concert began at 7:30, so I was stuck all day in school ready to leave. When it was finally time to get to my friend's house, I sprinted out the school's door towards my dad's car. It was going to be the first concert I would attend, so I kept imagining how the night was going to go. When I finally arrived at my friends house and left with them to the concert, we played The Cure songs non-stop until we arrived to the Amphitheater where The Cure were going to present themselves. It was a cold afternoon, so we spent a while in line trying to cover ourselves up with the blankets we brought. We weren't going to let a little cold weather stop us from enjoying the The Cure at its full potential.
The sun started to fade away into the horizon and stars were barely coming out. The cold was at it's highest peak and the crowd was waiting in full anticipation. The stage finally goes full pitch black and the crowd starts to scream in excitement. We all stood up to grab a view of what the whole condition was about, but the stage remained pitch black. Finally... we see all 5 members of The Cure walk up to the stage and grab their instruments. The crowd goes wild and the stage finally illuminates with a black and white hypnotizing ring visual. They break into their first song with no mercy, bringing the energy to a full time high. It was the beginning of what seemed an endless night.
My friend and I couldn't help, but to always be throbbing our heads up and down to the music. Some songs we didn't even know, but we didn't care, it was as if Christmas stroke again as a young child. Song after song, we kept our energy high as The Cure continued to bring exciting classic songs we all loved. We sometimes couldn't help, but break into dance! They played for a good 3 hours with at least 4 encores. It wasn't until the end where they broke into all their classic hits, where the crowd went absolutely crazy. I didn't see a single person not dancing towards the end! It was more than satisfying, it was more than what I expected.
That night I went back home with a smile. I kept humming their songs in my head as my dad picked me up late at one in the morning. I couldn't contain my amusement and had to tell my dad everything as well. It was a great night being able to hear good music with good friends, which is what I think made the concert experience even better for me. The Cure still remain with the same talent they had as youngsters and I think they even sounded better than before. It was great nice and I couldn't ask for anything better.
