I distinctly remember this concert by The Cure, I was 16 at the time, one of my first live shows to ever see, cost $12 (AUD) for the ticket.
They definitely did 3 encores & though at the time I wasn't 100% across every Cure song, it felt like they played every song in their repertoire. Fantastic show, I was perhaps 4 metres away from the stage.
The Newcastle Workers Club was a small venue, could fit maybe 2000 people maximum. It was destroyed in 1989 when Newcastle was hit with an earthquake. But band on the way up as The Cure were then, in a small venue, the scene would be set for a great show.
Another reason I remember the 1984 show so well is because I saw The Cure again in 1992 (at the Sydney Entertainment Centre) on the Wish tour, one of the worst shows I've ever seen by any band, a 90 minute show in total (including the encore & a halt mid-show when one of the band fell over), they looked bored & disinterested.
The Dropbears never really had major success outside of the indie charts in Australia but they're remembered well.
