The Cure ‘Paris’ to get 30th anniversary reissue

The set will include two previously unreleased tracks

Rhino is celebrating The Cure’s double live album, Paris, with a 30th anniversary reissue on March 22nd. The remastered audio will be available on CD and 2 LP featuring two bonus tracks.

Paris has been remastered by Robert Smith and Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, London. The LP, which is being issued on black vinyl for the first time since 1993, was cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road.

Paris was the second of two live records documenting the band’s 1992 tour in support of their ninth album Wish. The first album Show was released in September 1993 and reissued in July last year.

The 14-track album was recorded over three nights at Le Zénith de Paris in October 1992 and includes the singles “Lovesong,” “Catch,” “A Letter To Elise,” “Charlotte Sometimes,” “Close To Me,” and the perennial Cure live favorites “Play For Today” and “One Hundred Years.”

The Cure’s 30th anniversary reissue of Paris has now been expanded with the addition of two recently discovered previously unreleased tracks “Shake Dog Shake” and “Hot Hot Hot!!!” which now top and tail the album. The album running order has also been reconfigured accordingly.

In December, The Cure concluded their 90-date, 33-country Shows Of A Lost World tour to overwhelming fan and critical acclaim.
