Although some people are upset about the changes to this song, it's not exactly a new change. In fact, the song has been changed a few times since 2005. In 2005, The Cure was performing at several festivals in Europe and Robert had changed the song from Killing An Arab to Kissing An Arab. By 2006, he had added a new verse to the song and changed it into Killing Another. This same Killing Another version was used throughout the 2007-2008 tour as well.
Despite these changes, Bestival Live 2011 remains to be an amazing live DVD. The DVD features 32 songs in a performance that truly showcases some of the best hits from the 80s and 90s. This double disc set is likely to get a lot of use once it is added to any Cure fan's discography collection.
How do you feel about the changes from Killing An Arab to Killing Another? Knowing Robert Smith's attention to lyrics, what do you think his overall goals were by changing the song?
