The Cure: High tops n' hairspray






A great performance in Paris, what a surprise, I hate this, the performances in Paris and London are really great and much better than in other cities, anyway being a soundboard recording suffers of distortion here and there at certain tones in special at the beginning of CD2, that's why I didnít rate it as 10, the song list is great with surprises like Holy hour, the drowning man, M, all cats are grey and there are many songs in only 2 CD's and is the full show, so this is a must have from this era.


Song list


  1. Plainsong, pictures of you, closedown, piggy in the mirror, play for today, a night like this, just like heaven, catch, last dance, fascination street, cold, charlotte sometimes, the walk, a forest, in-between days, the same deep water as you.
  2. Prayers for rain, disintegration, lullaby, close to me, let's go to bed, why can't I be you, the holy hour, the drowning man, all cats are grey, m, three imaginary boys, fire in Cairo, boys don't cry, 10.15 Saturday night, killing an Arab
