Nirvana Pack ‘Nevermind’ 30th-Anniversary Reissue With 4 Unreleased Concerts

A day before the 30th anniversary of the release of Nirvana’s Nevermind, Geffen/UMe has announced a massive reissue of the classic 1991 LP that showcases the band’s live energy.

Due out starting November 12th, the 30th-anniversary edition of Nevermind — Number Six on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time — contains four of Nirvana’s long-bootlegged but never officially released complete concerts recorded in the months following Nevermind’s arrival: Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands (recorded and filmed on November 25th, 1991 at the Paradiso); Live in Del Mar, California (recorded on December 28th, 1991); Live in Melbourne, Australia for triple j (recorded February 1, 1992), and Live in Tokyo, Japan (recorded at the Nakano Sunplaza on February 19th, 1992).

All four newly remastered concerts feature on the eight-LP Nevermind Super Deluxe Edition, as well as the five-CD version that’s accompanied by a Blu-ray of the Amsterdam show with HD video; the band shared video of the performance of “Breed” from that concert:


The vinyl version also comes with a seven-inch single with Nevermind’s “secret song” “Endless, Nameless” backed by the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” B-sides “Even in His Youth” and “Aneurysm.” Both super deluxe box sets also contain a 40-page hardcover book with unreleased photos.

On all formats, available to preorder now, Nevermind itself has been newly remastered from the original half-inch stereo analog tapes to high-resolution 192kHz 24-bit.

The 20th-anniversary edition of Nevermind contained the unreleased “Boombox rehearsals,” producer Butch Vig’s Devonshire Mixes, Smart Studios sessions, and Live at the Paramount Theatre LP.
