This concert was planned to be the last ever The Cure concert. So at the end of this show, right after 'Forever' Robert said to the audience: "Thank you very much and good night. And i'll never see you again."

The Cure
Shelleyan Orphan
Pixies

contrary informations about Pixies being support too:
from Gwyneth:
know for certian that the Pixies were the supporting act for the Cure on the prayer tour in September 89 at Mansfield Ma.
I was at the show on Sep 23rd 1989. Yes, I know for sure. We were backstage with them after the show. I met frank black that night. SO, yes it was them.

from Matthew:
I was at this show, and I was a huge Pixies fan, but there was only one opening act and it was Shelleyan Orphan.
The Pixies opened for Love & Rockets at Mansfield (Great Woods) 6 days later. baileyswalk.com/live/1989

from Mike B:
I was at this show and I can say with 100% certainty that The Pixies did NOT play. They were on tour with Love and Rockets at the time and either played the previous or next weekend at Great Woods. I went to both shows.
