“What we do on stage is difficult to translate into this” The Cure

A great music video is The Cure doing a performance of their classic song Burn at Glastonbury in the United Kingdom in 2019.

We first heard this song on the soundtrack of the film The Crow in the 1990’s.

The cult classic starring Brandon Lee who died following an accident during the filming of the movie.

Following electrifying performances by Stormzy and The Killers, the pressure was on for The Cure to finish Glastonbury 2019 with a bang.

This was the band’s fourth headline set at the festival, previously performing back in 1986, 1990 and 1995. Perhaps unsurprisingly then, it was an accomplished performance that built up to a thrilling and hugely enjoyable conclusion.

They opened their two-hour set with songs such as PlainsongPictures Of You A Night Like This and Burn. While the first half of the show was noticeably lacking in hits, front man Robert Smith easily captivated the enormous crowd in a straightforward and stripped back performance.

Not bad, for someone who has been performing for 41 years.
