LIVE FULL - nirvana concerts 1992 at Reading

Shares ShareTweet
Nirvana’s legendary 1992 Reading concert is ranked #1 in Kerrang Magazine’s “100 Gigs That Shook The World” and voted as “Nirvana’s #1 Greatest Moment” by fans in an NME poll.

Nirvana’s historic August 30, 1992 headlining appearance at the UK’s Reading Festival is one of the most bootlegged concerts in the annals of rock’n’roll.

Now, fans can own a pristine copy of that entire performance – color-corrected video from the original film with audio sourced from the original multi-track masters.

 Forget the indulgent soloing and theatrical spectacle many live albums trade in. Live at Reading delivers instead an opportunity to revisit a key moment in rock history, unedited and unadorned, to experience the greatest rock’n’roll group of their era playing what became, tragically, their final performance on British soil. On this evidence, it was a truly remarkable night.
