Nirvana’s Final Show Now Online
Rare footage of what would turn out to be Nirvana’s final show ever in Los Angeles has been posted online by the filmmaker who took the footage, according to Loudwire. Documentary maker Dave Markey filmed the band performing in December 1993 at the Great Western Forum in Los Angeles, just four months before frontman Kurt Cobain would take his own life in April 1994 at his home in Seattle.
Markey wrote, “20 years ago tonight (December 30, 1993) I stood on Kurt’s side of the stage at my hometown’s Los Angeles Forum and captured the last set I would see of this band. A band that I had worked with, toured with; people that I would call my friends. A band that both the world and myself really loved (can’t really say this has happened since). Within just a few short months it would sadly all be over. I’m glad to have documented this show, as well as their pre-fame fun in 1991.”
The footage includes the band performing “All Apologies” and their cover of David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World.”
