Nineteen years ago today, my friend C. and I saw The Cure. I know. How cool is that?
It was the Disintegration tour. I know. How cool is that? I've heard that's the best album ever from a pretty reliable source!
We saw them in Toronto. I know. Cool, especially for 2 girls from Buffalo.
It's hard to believe but it gets even better: The Pixies and Love and Rockets were the opening bands. I KNOW! It was so cool.
Every year C. makes sure to get in contact on August 28th so we can relive our brush with coolness, our attendance at one of the greatest concerts ever. And sure enough, this morning she'd left me a facebook message.
It's hard to believe it's been 19 years. I was a wee lass in 1989, only 14 years old. How cool was C.'s mom for taking us all the way to Toronto? How cool were my parents for letting me go? It was a most excellent adventure. I've seen a bunch of concerts in my day....everyone from Weird Al to the Dead Milkmen to Rush to Ben Folds (all great shows, by the way), but The Cure's Disintegration Tour is still one of my all time favorites.
Thanks, Cher, for sharing that awesome experience with me. And for celebrating our anniversary each year.
So what have your favorite concerts been? Has anyone else seen The Cure? Anyone else in love with Robert Smith? What's your favorite Cure song?
