Friday was a good day to see The Cure, and I was most definitely in love come the end of my evening at Bellahouston Park. 

The first of leg of the Glasgow gigs in Bellahouston, thousands descended and the weather miraculously held. Having been to a summer's worth of festivals now, the season is winding down, but the quality of the acts certainly didn’t. 

The Twilight Sad were a fantastic support. I didn’t realise they were one of Robert Smith’s all-time favourite bands, and it felt more pertinent once seeing them take to the stage.

Alongside hits like ‘Last January’ and some goodies from the back catalogue, the bulk of their set was the suite of songs from ‘IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME’, recently shortlisted at the SAY awards. Their cover of Frightened Rabbit’s ‘Keep Yourself Warm’ had others, as well as myself, visibly emotional. 

Mogwai dusted the ears of their audience with a sound that matched the predicted weather, as thunderous prog-rock rained down. Ultimately, it was The Cure we were there to see and did they deliver? They most definitely did.

For me, I love when a band acknowledges the times and context in which they are playing. It was an hour before Robert did this, but it wasn’t too late.

Their first show in 27 years had the audience feeling honoured to be there, treating fans to material from ‘Disintegration’, ‘Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me’ and ‘Wish’.

Saving the smash hits like ‘Friday I’m In Love’, ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ and ‘Close To Me’ until after the encore, my only disappointment was that they didn’t play ‘Lovecats’, and the sound, I felt, could have been louder.

Other than that, though, it felt incredible to stand in the Scottish mud and be reassured by Smith himself that he will see us again.
