Coachella 2009: The Cure Set List

PHOTO: Robert Smith, Coachella 2009 by Sung

Main set:
underneath the stars
prayers for rain
a strange day
the end of the world
to wish impossible things
pictures of you
from the edge of the deep green sea
the perfect boy
wrong number
inbetween days
just like heaven
shake dog shake
the hungry ghost
one hundred years
it’s over

Encore 1:
if only tonight we could sleep
the kiss

Encore 2:

at night
play for today
a forest

Encore 3:

three imaginary boys
fire in cairo
boys don’t cry
jumping someone else’s train
grinding halt (partial)

The Cure played about 40 min past curfew till the plug was pulled on “Jumping Someone Elses Train”.

“Just past 12:30 a.m. on Monday, the main lights were turned on, …. Then the big screens were shut off and then the lights on the stage were turned on ….
Right after they started “Boys Don’t Cry,” the main speaker was turned-off, but they kept the amps on, on stage.
Once the group finished – Jumping Someone Elses Train – and started in on another – Grinding Halt – the stage amps were turned off at 12:40 a.m. Jason kept playing.” (source)
