Great Live Performance Now A Great CD,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bestival Live 2011 (Audio CD)
I was at Bestival and this was a stunning performance and it's great to have the whole show on CD. Whilst I prefer the doomier side of The Cure, this was a Festival and the singles & hits flowed which was perfect for the Bestival crowd.
The main set ran from the opening chimes of 'Plainsong' (still sends shivers down the spine) to the frantic 'Disintegration' & the encores saw them play 'The Caterpillar' for the first time in 20 years. The version of 'The Walk' is great with the RO'D back on keyboards doing the song justice and 'A Forest' is majestic.
The sound quality is excellent and priced at £7.99 is staggering - many bands could take a leaf out of the Cure's book when it comes to value for money.

Having seen The Cure many times since the early eighties, I didnt get to "Bestival".. And am very happy to own a copy of this CD. Basicly the whole 'Cure life', LIVE on two CDs, is a God-send to 'Every' Cure fan.. Fantastic memories of the many tours!!
