"I've actually reached the point where nothing in the world will make me go out and tour again," Robert Smith told Rolling Stone, in 1989. And yet here's the notoriously gloomy singer, at 54, still delivering shows every bit as epic as he did during the height of the Cure's fame. This past April, to celebrate his birthday, the singer (the only remaining original member of the band) and his four mope-rock cohorts charged through a four hour-plus, 50-song set in Mexico City that included four encores. At Lolla, expect the hits ("Lovesong," "Just Like Heaven"), and don't be surprised if some rarities help flesh out the band's festival-closing mainstage set.
