Geffen/UMe announced on Thursday the release of the 30th anniversary re-issue of Nirvana’s Nevermind.  The eight-LP Super Deluxe edition of the decade defining album will come with four previously unreleased concerts, all of which were recorded in the months after Nevermind’s release.

The four shows and their recorded dates are as follows:

  • Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands (recorded and filmed on November 25th, 1991 at the Paradiso)
  • Live in Del Mar, California (recorded on December 28th, 1991)
  • Live in Melbourne, Australia for triple j (recorded February 1, 1992)
  • Live in Tokyo, Japan (recorded at the Nakano Sunplaza on February 19th, 1992)

The CD release will feature a Blu-ray video of the Amsterdam concert, while the vinyl release will come with singles “Endless, Nameless” and fan favorite “Aneurysm”.  Both box sets in addition will be accompanied by a 40-page hardcopy book that includes never before seen photos of the band.  

For fans of Nirvana this is welcome news, as they’ll get to see more of what the band was capable of with their live act.  The trio of Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, and Krist Novoselic always brought an intense energy to the stage to create a phenomenal live experience.  

Since the band can never play together again after Cobain’s 1994 death, fans are always eager to devour as much of Nirvana’s discography as possible. The addition of these concerts will build on the legacy that the group left behind, and add another element to what they achieved in their short time together.

Nevermind’s re-release will be available on all formats.  Pre-order is available here.
