Show is a live album by English alternative rock band The Cure, released in 1993 and recorded live over two nights at The Palace of Auburn Hills, Auburn Hills, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit) in 1992, during the successful Wish tour. Show was also released as a concert video.

This live album was released along with Paris, which was recorded in Paris, France. Show leaned somewhat more towards the band's poppier and more recent material such as "Just Like Heaven", "Pictures of You" and "Friday I'm in Love" while Paris skewed towards their older cult-classics.

Track listing[edit]

Show is a double-CD release in most cases. There are various versions with differing track listing. The US version is the only one-disc edition. The songs which did not fit onto the US disc ("Fascination Street", "The Walk" and "Let's Go to Bed") were released as the EP Sideshow. The CD-i version contains extra tracks.
