United States (Washington)
Robert Smith’s The Cure (UK) set the benchmark for concert encores by returning to the stage five times at the end of three shows in 2004 and 2005. The “Friday I’m in Love” hit-makers treated fans to five encores at the Everett Events Center (now the Comcast Arena) in Washington, USA, on 31 August 2004, the Palacio de los Deportes (the “Palace of Sports”) in Mexico City, Mexico, on 6 September 2004, and Hezarfen Havaalani (Hezarfen Airfield) in Istanbul, Turkey, on 3 September 2005, giving a whole new meaning to their US Alternative Songs chart No.1 from 1990, "Never Enough".
