Filmmaker Dave Markey has uploaded footage of Nirvana’s final performance in Los Angeles to his YouTube channel, the NME points out. The show took place on December 30, 1993 at the Great Western Forum during Nirvana’s tour in support of their In Utero LP.
Markey—whose film, 1991: The Year Punk Broke, is essential viewing—shared some words about the gig:
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. Sharing a few songs here; a couple covers (Vaselines' "Jesus" & Bowie's "Man Who Sold The World") and All Apologies. I'm glad to have documented this show, as well as their pre-fame fun in 1991
Check out the rare footage below, which contains Nirvana covering Bowie's Man Who Sold the World and the Vaselines' Jesus as well as All Apologies.
