Video: The Cure at Spain’s Bilbao BBK Live festival, plus solo Robert Smith!!

Two days ago, The Cure played a memorable set at Spain's Bilboa Live Festival, though it had a rocky start as the crew worked to fix Roger O'Donnel's keyboards, Robert Smith took it upon himself to play an incredibly rare solo set including three songs from their debut album, Three Imaginary Boys. He played solo acoustic versions of Three Imaginary Boys, Fire in Cairo, and Boys Don't Cry. Here is the video:

After this three song set, Robert Smith tells the crowd " “I think I have to get the rest of the group with me. Hang on" The band then goes on to play a 35 song set. I have found the first 9 songs online. Enjoy the webcast! It's funny to hear Robert Smith attempt to speak in Spanish!

 The Cure
1. “Open”
2. “High”
3. “The End of the World”
4. “Lovesong”
5. “Sleep When I’m Dead”
6. “Push”

9. “From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea”
