The Cure are a legendary band. Their songs are touchpoints in so many people's lives. And their live performances are legendary for their marathon-like lengths.

I was pretty sure that the Toronto show at Riot Fest would be spectacular, and a rare opportunity to see such a legendary band, but I know that these festivals have strict curfews, so we weren't going to be enjoying a runaway show. Indeed, The Cure brought a huge 26-song setlist that ended on time and surely left every fan satisfied.

They didn't allow pics, so I hope you like my pics of the scenic sunset that preceded their show.

Here are my favourite tunes from the set:

"Just Like Heaven"

"Lovesong"

"Pictures of You"

"Mint Car"

"In Between Days"

"Friday I'm In Love"

Encore tunes "Close to Me"

"Why Can't I Be You?" and

"Boys Don't Cry"
