Paris the double live album by The Cure, has turned 30 years old, and to celebrate, remastered 2LP and 1CD versions will be reissued featuring two bonus tracks. The album has been remastered by Robert Smith and Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, London.
Paris was the second of two live records documenting the band’s 1992 tour in support of their ninth album Wish. 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 favourites ‘Play For Today’ and ‘One Hundred Years’.
The Cure’s 30th anniversary re-issue 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.
50% of the recording royalties from the sale of Paris will be paid to the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement.
The Cure – Paris 30th Anniversary Edition is released 22nd March
