The Cure chronology

Paris is a live album recorded by The Cure at Le Zénith in Paris, in October 1992 during their Wish tour, but released in 1993.

Paris was released at the same time as Show, which was recorded in the United States. The album features more cult classics like "The Figurehead" and "One Hundred Years" than Show, which is generally more single-friendly. A marked feature of the recordings is the ecstatic fervour with which the band are received by the Parisian audience; "Play for Today" is accompanied by the crowd singing along to the keyboard line. This period marked the high-water mark of the band's popularity - and this is notable from the reaction.
