Universal Music to release NIRVANA Reading Festival 1992 DVD

The Internet Nirvana Fan Club, NFC, has learned exclusively that another Nirvana DVD is to be released officially by Nirvana's label, Universal. The DVD will contain the legendary performance at England's Reading Festival where the band played in August, 1992. A release date has not yet been determined.

The video recording which runs for over 90 minutes features one of Nirvana's finest live performances, with a setlist that includes many of the best tracks from their catalogue at the time. There's also an early performance (with alt. lyrics) of the song that would eventually become tourette's, as well as funny covers and jams.

In early 2005, a time-coded PRO-shot video of the show started circulating in the Nirvana collector's circles. This recording has since been released unofficially on DVD and can be found in some stores.

At this time, there's no further details on the official Universal DVD release of the Reading 1992 show (such as technical specs, extras, etc). A 2009 release is most likely.
