It will need to be lined or it will wick into the slab and studding.

Moisture gets behind the wall tile and is eventually caught by the liner..

### Do I need a shower pan on concrete floor?

You will have to ensure that there is no wax, oil, grease, or soap scum on the face of the concrete slab that could ruin or reduce the bond.
