To celebrate the 30th anniversary of their live album, Paris, released in 1993, The Cure has announced a remastered and expanded version will soon be released to fans of the alt-rock group. Paris was recorded during a 1992 tour promoting their ninth album, Wish, which had hit songs “High” and the now-classic “Friday, I’m in Love” as well as “A Letter to Elise.” It was the band’s most successful album commercially and was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Alternative Music Album category.

The remastered live album compiled by Robert Smith will be released on March 22 (on vinyl and CD) and will include two previously unreleased live songs, “Shake Dog Shake” and “Hot Hot Hot!!!”

You can pre-order Paris here.

This isn’t the band’s only special release this year. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of their first album The Top, it is getting a special picture disc release on Record Store Day and was remastered by Robert Smith.
Currently, the band has no plans to tour as they just wrapped up a world tour in 2023.
