The Cure will mark the 30th anniversary of the band’s 1993 live album Show — recorded the previous year at two tour stops in Michigan — with a new 2LP vinyl reissue this September, marking the first time the live set has been available on black vinyl since its original release.

The new pressing, on heavyweight vinyl, will be released by Rhino Records on Sept. 8 — pre-order it now via — and it follows the picture-disc edition the band released earlier this year on Record Store Day.

Show is one of two live albums The Cure released in late 1993 chronicling the band’s tour in support of the previous year’s Wish album. (The less-poppy Paris was the other live album.) The set included on Show was recorded at concerts on July 18 and 19, 1992, at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan.

The live set was never released on vinyl in the U.S., though it did receive 2LP pressings in 1993 in Europe and other parts of the world. The new pressing includes the full 18-song tracklist that was issued on double CD and vinyl outside the U.S. (Here in the U.S., the band only released a single-disc version of Show on CD with 14 songs; the five cut songs were instead relegated to the Sideshow EP.)
