Well, that was weird.
As the Cure inched towards the three hour mark of their setlist and launched into their iconic "Boys Don't Cry" as part of their third encore, THE PLUG GOT PULLED. First sound, then stage lights/video screen. Weird move in general, especially with a legendary band headlining a major festival. In a pretty badass move, Robert Smith and co. continued with "Jumping Someone Else's Train," before finally relenting. Odd note to end things on. But now it's time to drive home.
Final thoughts/recaps/pics/odds and ends later tonight or Monday (smart money's on Monday!).
