Legendary band The Cure played for the first time in Honolulu at Blaisdell Arena on Tuesday night. The show, which was close to sold out, had fans abuzz for months and didn’t disappoint. The Cure, known for playing long sets, drew from nearly four decades of hits to play a tight two and a half hour set, which included crowd favorites like “Just Like Heaven,” “Lovesong,” “A Forest” “Why Can’t I Be You” and “Boys Don’t Cry.”

The opening band, hand-picked by Robert Smith himself, was Honolulu trio Clones of the Queen.
