Nirvana’s Reading Festival gig to be released on DVD

They cover 'More Than A Feeling' and 'Star Spangled Banner' during the show

Nirvana‘s headline gig at 1992’s Reading Festival is to be released on DVD.

Titled ‘Life Takes No Prisoners’, the gig sees the band play 27 songs including covers of Boston‘s ‘More Than A Feeling’, Fang‘s ‘The Money Will Roll Right In’ and ‘The Star Spangled Banner’.

Notorious due to Kurt Cobain coming onstage in a wheelchair and wearing a white hospital robe for the duration of the performance, the gig is considered one of Nirvana‘s best.


‘Life Takes No Prisoners’ is released on May 4. The tracklisting is as follows:

‘The Rose’/ ‘Intro’
‘Drain You’
‘In Bloom’
‘Come As You Are’
‘About A Girl’
‘Lounge Act’
‘More Than A Feeling’/’Smells Like Teen Spirit’
‘On A Plain’
‘Negative Creep’
‘Been A Son’
‘All Apologies’
‘Stay Away’
‘Spank Thru’
‘Love Buzz’
‘The Money Will Roll Right In’
‘Territorial Pissings’
‘The Star Spangled Banner’

This “bootleg” release will be followed by an officially sanction Nirvana DVD of the gig, which is due out in November.
