NOTE: Forget the Throwback SuperJam: Tears for Fears were the real party for festivalgoers who actually experienced the Reagan era. The long-running act opened with "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" and just piled on the hits after that: "Sowing the Seeds of Love," "Pale Shelter," "Break It Down Again" and more. Tears for Fears' set also leaned heavily on their 1983 debut LP The Hurting, an album that never really connected with American audiences. ("Especially in Tennessee," Curt Smith joked.) The band strung three singles together from that album: "Mad World," "Change" and "Memories Fade." ("Kanye!" audience members screamed on the latter, a nod to the rapper sampling that track for "Coldest Winter.") Following Roland Orzabal's magical, muted performance of Radiohead's "Creep," the New Wave favorites closed out things out with the powerhouse tandem of "Head Over Heels" and "Shout."
