The Cure to Reissue Live Album, Paris, with Unreleased Recordings

The Cure’s double live album, Paris, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2024. To mark the occasion, Rhino Records has announced a new reissue set for release on March 22nd.

The live recording was remastered by The Cure’s Robert Smith and Miles Showell at Abby Road Studios in London. As part of the process, Smith included two previously unreleased tracks, “Shake Dog Shake” and “Hot Hot Hot!!!”, and reconfigured the tracklist.

The 30th anniversary of Paris will be available as a 1xCD or 2xLP set. Pre-orders are now ongoing.

Paris is the second of two live albums documenting The Cure’s 1992 tour in support of Wish. The first live album, Show, was reissued last year.

The Cure have long been teasing a new album called Songs of a Lost World, but there’s still no word on a release date. The band recently wrapped up their triumphant “Shows of a Lost World Tour,” which proved to be the highest-grossing tour of their career (despite leaving millions of dollars on the table by opting out of  Ticketmaster’s “platinum” and “dynamically priced” ticket options).
