With the light spirit and the look of who owes nothing to anyone, Robert Smith ripped off the concert of The Cure with a contagious smile. And to the good fortune of the NOS Alive audience, those responsible for the growth of guitar sales in Scotland continue to captivate crowds in a unique way.
Despite the passing of the years, The Cure continue to be able to turn pain into art, melancholy into hope. And it was with an audience infected by this feeling that the British went on stage to warm the cool Lisbon summer night.
Hovering like a light capable of filling the darkness, the British brought in great classics in the luggage. But the odyssey began a few years earlier in 1984 with "Shake Dog Shake" from the album "The Top," which paved the way for "Burn" and "Fascination Street" – the three songs were just heating up for over 25 chapters full of restlessness and longing, but always with a smile.
For almost two hours, the band offered everything – always in a cinematographic tone – and a little more to the fans. Although the room was not full, the presents were made with considerable echo, always with the memories very present.
Throughout the concert, light plays and projections helped paint the setting – for each song, The Cure presented a different projection. For example, in "Primary," the background of the stage featured a projection reminiscent of watercolor paintings and "39" projected images reproduced flames.
The song parade also featured "Lullaby," "The Caterpillar," "The Walk," "I'm in Love," or "Why Can not I Be You?". "Boys Do not Cry" was saved for the final, marking the moment of greatest ovation of the night.
Throughout the concert, the audience was attuned to the energy of Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Jason Cooper, Roger O'Donnell and Reeves Gabrels – with each song, the audience went dancing as if casting out the demons.

"On My Mind", "Teenage Fantasy", "Where Did I Go" or "February 3rd" were some of the themes that were not out of alignment and were welcomed with euphoria by the fans.
"Blue Lights," the theme with which Jorja Smith introduced herself to the world marked the highlight of the concert. By the final applause, the return of the artist from the United Kingdom to Portugal should not take long.
Before Jorja Smith, the Weezer served the sunset soundtrack – and even the sound faults did not make the audience discourage during the concert.
