20 years ago today, Nirvana play their very last show in the United Kingdom at the Reading Festival.
"Ten minutes before the concert, we take a look at the set list, and then we go on stage to give back. Nothing more. An hour and fifteen minutes on stage. This hour and a quarter, it is our own time, and no one can interfere with that.” - Kurt Cobain at the Reading Festival, 1992.
10/24/90 - London, UK.
Interviewer: "How did you decide on the name Nirvana?"
Kurt Cobain: "There’s no reason at all, it just sounded nice."
Interviewer: "Do you think that’s the state of mind you should have when you listen to your music?"
Kurt Cobain: "I’d like to think that, I feel that way at times when we’re playing on stage, I can sometimes feel a lot of real human energy, the name means freedom from pain and suffering and the external world. That’s a pretty stupid heavy little statement but it seems everyone is looking for something like that, religions a pretty popular thing, freedom from pain."
Today in 1992, Nirvana performed at The King’s Hall in Belfast, UK. Before the show, Kurt, Krist & Dave was swamped with fans wanting an autograph outside of the venue, "Tonight was in-sane, all these people thrusting little pieces of paper in our face. For what? To prove that they stuck a piece of paper in our face and we had a pen at the time? I don’t understand that. We are not the resurrection of Christ. We are another fuckin’ band." - Dave Grohl.
