For years, Nirvana enthusiasts have yearned for a glimpse into the band’s remarkable live performances during their 1993/1994 peak. We recently reported that a 30th-anniversary of In Utero will fulfill those fans’ wishes, as two entire shows from late 1993 and early 1994, including a homecoming gig in Seattle, have been unearthed and are set to be released as part of the mammoth edition.
In a recent interview with MOJO Magazine Nirvana‘s bassist Krist Novoselic couldn’t contain his excitement, when talking about the live recordings: “The shows rock. They need to be heard. Now with the AI, you can take a stereo mix and then break it down into a multitrack. So you can get really good mixes. They sound raw. And you get Kurt up there who’s just carrying the show. Amazing.”
During the same interview, Novoselic also revealed that he might be open to an Abba Voyage-esque ‘Nirvanatar’ show, which if you ask us, sounds like a really awful idea: “You never know! I’ll say ‘no way’, then it’s like, ‘How much?? When do we start?!'”
For those unaware, Swedish pop group Abba has been “touring” as digital holograms for the past year. Whether or not you’re into the idea, the “tour” has been grossing roughly $2 million weekly. So while we sit here and bemoan the idea of a Nirvana version, I guess people are into it?
