Tears for Fears in San Francisco
I saw Tears for Fears perform in San Francisco as part of Alice radio's Now and Zen festival. The festival included Howie Day, of whom I have not heard before, Dashboard Confessional, who play music that I do not listen to, Morrissey, who had to cancel because of sinusitis and laryngitis, and Tears for Fears.
I went to the festival to see Tears for Fears. They sounded pretty good. One moment I thought was particularly entertaining. Curt Smith mentioned that a lot of the audience looked too young to know who they were. So, he said the band would do a cover of a recent popular song. They then did a cover of Gary Jules' Mad World. This was entertaining because Gary Jules' Mad World is a cover of a Tears for Fears song. They played it like Gary Jules' rendition. Unfortunately, Tears for Fears were only prepared to play a short set, not knowing of Morrissey's impending doom.
