"Say hello on a night like this" - Robert Smith calls from the stage, as he playfully says hello to the audienec.
"A Night Like This” wasn't one of the band's biggest singles, though it's definitely one of the best. As the Simon Gallup/Boris Williams rhythm section lays down a strong, punchy beat for the guitars to ride on, Robert Smith details a cryptic but somehow just-right image of a relationship on the verge of collapse. His singing is brilliant, his hurt vocals suit the words exactly, growing even stronger as he goes, while instruments are solid and varied enough. An interesting highlight of this song is a a guest saxophone solo by Ron Howe, charted to keys and makes this song very unique in the bands catalog. A true Cure classic to open this show.
