Nirvana concert will bring grunge rock to VH1 Classic

By now, you know grunge icons Nirvana celebrate the 20th anniversary of their innovative, Nevermind, album on Saturday (Sept. 24). But, Kurt Cobain fans, don’t forget that music television network VH1 Classic will air a scarce, never-before televised concert from the guys at 11 p.m. EST Friday. That’s almost perfect timing to roll in the midnight anniversary of, Nevermind.

“Nirvana: Live at the Paramount” was taped Cobain’s hometown of Seattle on Halloween, 1991, and features performances of the tracks that helped outline the eventual, extremely popular grunge rock movement, including “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Breed” and “Lithium,” as well as tracks outside the Nevermind assortment.

Say you might miss the show? The concert will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on Sept. 27, as part of the “super-deluxe” reissue of Nevermind, which will span four discs and include the formative album, demos, B-sides, rehearsals, previously unreleased tracks, the Paramount concert as a live disc, a 90-page collector’s book and random collectables. While the “super-deluxe” edition sounds cool, it will run $169.99 at Best Buy, and is also for sale on iTunes, Amazon through the band’s official website. Those who have lots of love for Nirvana but don’t want to spend the full $169.99 will find plenty of other options, as Nevermind is also being re-issued in more affordable packages on the site.
