We’ve been eagerly awaiting to see if there would be an official celebration of Nirvana’s landmark album Nevermind for its 30th anniversary. Good news, there is one and it’s going to be even more epic than we thought.
September 24 marks 30 years since the release of Nevermind as Nirvana announced an absolutely massive anniversary edition. We’re talking 94 audio and video tracks, 70 (!!!!) of those that were previously unreleased.
Watch the trailer the band put out below and just try not to get hyped.
Fans will be able to purchase various iterations of the anniversary edition including a super deluxe edition, standard digital/CD, and single disc vinyl with bonus 7-inch. Regardless of which format you choose, you’ll receive a newly remastered version of Nevermind from the original half-inch stereo analog tapes to high-resolution audio.
Among the previously unreleased material that’ll appear on the 30th anniversary edition are four complete live shows that will give listeners a front row seat to the historic rise in popularity Nirvana experienced.
The shows include Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands (recorded and filmed on November 25, 1991 at the famed club Paradiso); Live in Del Mar, California (recorded on December 28, 1991 at the Pat O’Brien Pavilion at the Del Mar Fairgrounds); Live in Melbourne, Australia for triple j (recorded February 1, 1992 at The Palace in St. Kilda); and Live in Tokyo, Japan (recorded at the Nakano Sunplaza on February 19, 1992).
All four of these shows will be a part of the super deluxe edition (which you can find out more info about here) and will be available in vinyl(8LPs) and CD+Blu-ray (5 CDs plus the Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands complete concert video Blu-ray).
The Nevermind 30th anniversary edition is set to be released this November. While you eagerly await the release, join Audacy in celebration of the landmark album by cranking up Nirvana Radio, our Exclusive Station featuring the band’s hits, underrated tracks, and everything in between.
