Footage Of Nirvana’s Final Los Angeles Gig Surfaces

Written by Greg Moskovitch on January 7, 2014

Rare footage of grunge legends Nirvana playing their last ever Los Angeles show has been posted online by filmmaker and friend of the band, Dave Markey. The video was captured in December 1993 at Los Angeles’ Great Western Forum while the band was touring their third studio album, In Utero.

The footage includes a performance of the In Utero track All Apologies, as well as a cover of the VaselinesJesus Doesn’t Want Me for a Sunbeam and an electric cover of David Bowie‘s The Man Who Sold The World. The latter two were famously performed during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged set.

“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,” writes Markey. “A band that I had worked 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.”

Last month, the small town of Hoquiam, Washington announced an annual ‘Nirvana Day,’ in honour of the band, while earlier that month the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame announced that they would be inducting Nirvana along with KISS and Peter Gabriel as part of their class of 2014.
