FRIDAY WE’RE IN LOVE!

And Elbow also make a triumphant homecoming...

THE CURE brought the second night of MANCHESTER’s MOVE festival to a spectacular climax tonight.

The Goth legends pleased a crowd hoping for a greatest extravaganza with hits like ‘In-Between Days’, ‘Pictures Of You’ and a final ‘Boys Don’t Cry’.

However, they disappointed braying fans calling for them to play ‘Friday I’m In Love’, on the grounds that it’s Friday.

Support came from hometown heroes Elbow, who romped home at their first Manchester show since recording new single ‘Grace Under Pressure’ live at Glastonbury last month.

Singer Guy Garvey told NME.COM: “It was a moving and festive Move Festival. We were happy to share a stage with The Cure.

“Hopefully we brought the sunset along early. Manchester being the greatest city in the world, it was a pleasure to play.”

Tomorrow the band head to Ireland to play the Oxegen Festival. Today’s Move line-up was completed by Keane, Longview and The Cranes.

The Cure’s setlist was:

‘Plain Song’

’Shake Dog Shake’

’Labyrinth’

’Fascination Street’

’Before 3’

’From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea’
