The Cure for post-holiday blues? 48-song concert setlist!

If you have been lucky enough to catch The Cure on one of their marathon concerts this past week, then you can stop reading right here. For the 99.9 percent of Stuck in the '80s Nation though, you'll be amazed to know Robert Smith and the gang are staging intimate shows in New York and Los Angeles featuring 48-song sets. FORTY-EIGHT!

Here's a quote from the Orange County Register's review of an L.A. show:

"In this massive context, you could literally hear how the thorny, arresting early Cure began to transform into the compellingly ponderous beast millions of people latched onto at the time of Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (1987), Disintegration (1989) and Wish (1992). That change seems to happen just as Side 2 of Seventeen Seconds approaches, when the lingering moodiness of In Your House and Three gives way to the menace and mystery of A Forest."

Sadly, the closest any of us will come to this experience is rebuilding the setlist in iTunes. So here's the exact setlist from Sunday night's show at the Beacon Theatre in New York.
