"Live! Tonight! Sold Out!!" to be released on DVD in November

In November, the 1994 compilation video Live! Tonight! Sold Out!! will finally be released on DVD.

The video has been cleaned up and will look much better than the VHS, and even the laserdisc release. The audio has been remastered. In addition, there will be some bonus material, but it is not known at this point whether it will include previously unreleased footage. A very likely release date for the DVD is November 13 in Europe and November 14 in the US.

This will mark the first ever DVD-release by Nirvana's record label, aside from the DVD that was included with 2004's With The Lights Out box set.

Live! Tonight! Sold Out!! was originally conceived by Kurt Cobain in 1993 but it was delayed due to other commitments with touring, etc. By the time Kurt died in 1994, it had not yet been completed, but Krist and Dave continued the project and tried to maintain's Kurt's original vision. In the "Journals" book, you can find a page with Kurt's notes for the video's concept. The video contains concert footage, interviews and various backstage clips.

The VHS and laserdisc version was originally released in November 1994. Note that an unofficial DVD from 2003 with inferior quality, produced in Brazil, is also circulating.
