Nirvana release first ever DVD

Live! Tonight! Sold Out finally moves to new format

Nirvana are set to release their first ever DVD.

’Live! Tonight! Sold Out!!’ is set to make its debut on DVD, having been previously relased on VHS and laserdisc in November 1994.

The project was conceived by Kurt Cobain and overseen by Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic along with director Kevin Kerslake following his death.

Most of the footage was shot at the height of the ’Nevermind’ hysteria between 1991 and 1992, including the band’s infamous Reading performance from 1992 (their last ever UK show) and their version of ’Smells Like Teen Spirit’ from ‘Top Of The Pops’ in 1991.

The audio from the footage has been remastered for DVD release, and some bonus material has been added, although it is unclear what it will be.

Nirvanaclub.com reports that the DVD will be released on November 13.

Meanwhile, see this weeks NME’s 15th anniversary ‘Nevermind’ special, featuring a track-by-track look at the album as well as speaking to all the major players, such as Courtney Love, producer Butch Vig and drummer Dave Grohl.

Also, NME’s sister magazine Uncut features Nirvana in its grunge special in this month’s issue.

It’s onsale now in all good newsagents, priced £4.20, or can be brought with this week’s NME in selected outlets for the special joint price of £4.50.
