The Cure Live in Holmdel NJ - June 16th 2000

The Dream Tour - June 16th 2000
PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel NJ

Two nights later and one long drive down from Mansfield MA brought us to Holmdel NJ on June 16th. After a somewhat average setlist at the show before this one (still great considering the songs used in this tour) yet still an average setlist. With the emotional "end of the cure" at Jones Beach looming in a few days, as was the Philly date in camden in que. Here we stood in the middle of nowhere, central NJ, with a half full ampitheatre, so needless to say....  I was not expecting much more for this show than what we saw in Mansfield, and I was pleasantly surprised to say the least.

As soon as the band went into A night Like This I had a better feeling about this show. 
It ended up being one of the best shows I saw on the dream tour. We didn't get the Faith encore that night, but Same Deep Water in the encore made up for it, into one of the better 21st century versions of Disintegration, The Pornography encore, Siamese Twins in the mainset. It was just a really great setlist and they band played really well. Robert was really on point at this show.


out of this world, watching me fall, want, fascination street, a night like this, the last day of summer, pictures of you, maybe someday, like cockatoos, from the edge of the deep green sea, inbetween days, if only tonight we could sleep, siamese twins, one hundred years, 39, bloodflowers,
plainsong, the same deep water as you, disintegration,
cold, a strange day, pornography,
m, play for today, just like heaven, a forest
