You’ll soon be able to stream Nirvana’s 1993 Live and Loud performance

In December 1993, two months after the band unleashed In Utero, Nirvana performed at Pier 48 in their hometown of Seattle, which was recorded and broadcast on MTV’s Live and Loud. 

Recorded weeks after their iconic MTV Unplugged performance, it became one of the final televised appearances from Kurt Cobain.

Nirvana’s iconic 1993 Live and Loud performance, recorded by MTV, will soon be available on streaming services and is also getting pressed to vinyl.

The recording was released as a video album, Live and Loud, in 2013, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s last album, In Utero, and was also pressed onto CD for deluxe editions of the album.

Now, fans without CD or DVD players are finally getting the chance to experience Nirvana’s stellar live performance. The band has announced via the official Nirvana twitter account that the iconic performance will be released on vinyl and on streaming services for the first time.


The 2xLP vinyl, which will mark the first vinyl release from Nirvana since April last year, will boast an impressive 17-song tracklist including some of the band’s most recognisable tracks, including Drain You, Silver, Lithium and Come As You Are.

Pre-orders for the vinyl edition are on sale now, with an official release date set for the 30th of August.
