    480p and in the wrong aspect ratio? Perfect!

    I’m sorry, but am I the only one that thinks Robert Smith looks more and more like that transvestite head they find in a jar in Silence of the Lambs? He really needs an updated look. Let go, Robert. Let go.

  • I’m with you, Craig…

  • Scott Mittleman

    Great performances! Makes me wish I saw the Cure last month at the Pantages Theater in L.A.

  • yeah, i’ve been a huge cure fan for ages. saw them 3 times starting with the kiss me tour. but robert looks like a melting candle these days. i agree with craig. let go of the 80’s robert. even simon (who looks great) has moved on.

  • James

    Yes, he is starting to look more like Liz Taylor when she was old.

  • Long time Cure fan here, but with Robert Smith at over 50 years old (and paunchier than ever in recent years) I feel embarrassed for him still rocking the 1980’s goth hair & make-up. Take a cue from Bowie and drop all the gimmicks and disguises in your later years…

    I’ve been saying for a few years now that Robert needs to get rid of the lipstick / eyeliner combo and do something with that mop of his . Shedding a few pounds wouldn’t hurt either . : )
