Catching up with The Cure
The band, in the middle of a four-month world tour, hit Chicago over the weekend. But the Sun-Times reviewer was thrifty (cranky even?) with the compliments.
"... Followers were thrilled to fill the Allstate Arena in Rosemont on Saturday, but to the wider world this was a non-event. That's because ... rock fans still prefer our pop stars mysterious and ephemeral. In contrast, years of grinding out albums and circling the globe has made the Cure seem workmanlike."
